A simple shift in thought

I’d been waiting for this trip for years. At my school, we get the special opportunity to go to Costa Rica in eighth grade. I’d spent a long time anticipating everything we would see—the waterfalls, as well as birds and other wildlife that are unique to that country. But after all my excitement, just a week before the trip I started to feel horrible. 

I had an upset stomach and a bad cough. I was super sad, because at the time I thought that there was no way I’d be able to go on the trip, no matter how much I’d been looking forward to it.
