Have you ever had an expectation only to be spun around 180 degrees in the other direction? How did you react? I know for me I used to get frustrated, annoyed and I'll say it, pissed when things didn't go to plan, when I didn't feel I was in control.
This picture you see before you is of Amanda and I laughing at the fact that we are sitting in a waterfall. Clearly the water is missing. It had been raining and in our minds there would be water gushing over the rocks. Who doesn't love a nice waterfall. Given we didn't get that much rain, there was no water.
No loss, we did some exploring of the rocks, launched the #djimavicpro and sat right where the water would have been.
Expectations are are funny thing. Our minds naturally create them, yet they can be so deflating. As William Shakespear wrote "expectation is the root of all heartache". I am getting better at catching expectations and then talking them down a little. It sounds a little negative as I write it, but in reality I now have more pleasant suprises than dissapointments.
