Always Beat Expectations
How often have we been burned by expectations, letting them get in the way of enjoying what has been provided to us? I have certainly been guilty of this as Martin and I have traveled the world during this past year. Before arriving to a new destination, I sometimes made the mistake of conjuring up a picture in my mind of where we’d stay, what we’d see and do, and the food we’d eat, only to have the actual scenario be totally different. Because of my attachment to the expectations I created, I would then become frustrated, disappointed, or miss the experience altogether because my vision didn’t match reality. And this in no way meant that the situation was bad or that the circumstances were somehow less than my imaginings but only that my mind wasn’t capable of comprehending the uniqueness (and sometimes uncomfortableness) of something new. If, at other times before arriving to a new locale, I formed a specific and meaningful intention—to become reacquainted with myself, to heal, or like our host Upul, to “open my mind”—, the outcome often surpassed anything I could have ever imagined...
