Between Experience and Expectation
Experience and expectation don’t always coincide. We read a local news report and expect a rainy day, yet when we go out we experience sunshine as unforeseen changes alter the weather patterns. We lay down to sleep expecting a long morning commute to work, wake up with a head cold and decide to stay home. We can find similar examples in our own lives where this pattern holds true, and yet it is rare that we really consider how this common deviation between experience and expectation affects us in a deeper way.
