I find myself wondering how often situations are complicated because of expectations, or more rightly addressed as unmet expectations.
We are headed of to a family cruise. Expectations of family fun and joyous times...
Truth is how you view your life: happy, sad, stressed, or simple, is based on whether your expectations have been met.
No matter what, I expect the trip to be fun and full of adventure: poolside, dinner conversations, piano bars, show, and excursions!!! Key West and Sting Rays in Cozumel!!! :)
Communication or lack of communication is a big factor in expectations being met.
