more on expectations

A limousine has two seats behind the driver facing each other, a phone to talk to the driver, and a supply of alcohol. My brother rented a limo for my grandmother for her 90th birthday celebration, which we all rode in to his house.

When Terry’s company had a 20th anniversary celebration in Las Vegas a few years ago, we were told we would be picked up at the airport by a limo. It was a town car. I was disappointed.

A couple of weeks ago when I went to Houston for a work conference, I understood I was going to be picked up at the airport by a shuttle bus. I was picked up by a town car. I was delighted.

As I’ve been writing here, our expectations have so much to do with how we see the world and whether our level of frustration and anxiety is high or low. I’m glad to be making progress on that front.
