Life Lessons, Expectations and Familiar Situations

"Experience is what you get when you do not get what you want"

I really like this quote by unknown author. It's just true. We may strive for something, do our best at achieving things, but maybe sometimes what we think we want is just not meant to happen, or maybe just not in the way we expect it to happen. It gets frustrating, true that, but what you get in the end is priceless - you get experience and a chance to do better next time around. I'm thankful for the things that went in the opposite direction from my expectations - when faced with a similar situation now, I'm not scared, I know I'll figure out what to do.
