A change in expectations

I had planned a perfect drive for our out of town guests.  A trip that included a drive down the Pacific Coast Highway along the twisting cliffs over the Pacific Ocean.  A picturesque panoramic drive.  However.   I'm still the new girl in town, and I forgot about summer fog.  Initially I was disappointed that my 'picture perfect' drive was fogged in.  But here's the thing that I spend my life trying to remind myself:  It's all a matter of perspective.  Letting go of expectations allows room to see the beauty in each unique situation.  And really, a drive in the foggy hills around the ocean is beautiful.  Picturesque, even.
