Emily Perl Kingsley, a writer for Sesame Street who has a special needs child, tells a story about a vacation planned for Italy. But instead of Italy the plane lands in Holland.

Holland?!? What do you mean Holland?? I signed up for Italy! I'm supposed to be in Italy. All my life I've dreamed of going to Italy.“

Everyone you know is busy coming and going from Italy... and they're all bragging about what a wonderful time they had there. And for the rest of your life, you will say "Yes, that's where I was supposed to go. That's what I had planned.

In the end, however, Emily realizes that the "trip" was well worth it:

But... if you spend your life mourning the fact that you didn't get to Italy, you may never be free to enjoy the very special, the very lovely things ... about Holland.
