Few things match that feeling of excitement when the first box of your book arrives on your door-step, as mine did, a few weeks ago. I was delighted and took the family out for a ‘special’ dinner to celebrate.
When something that's important doesn't turn out the way we expect, delight quickly becomes disappointment.
I woke up the next morning to discover that my beautiful books had a pretty big defect. When you used them, the shiny cover peeled off.
Life is not straightforward and sometimes we don’t get what we expect?
Luckily, I was able to change printers and the issue was fixed pretty quickly. However, not before I had been on a pretty big emotional roller-coaster ride.
So I'm curious. 🤔
When was the last time you did not get what you expected?
Did you endure the emotional roller-coaster?
How did it impact your perspective and your response?
