Preparing for the best…

Preparing for the best… There really ain’t no harm in preparing for the best…  Yes I know that the worst can happen, it is possible, but its not always probable, its potential but not necessarily consequential! I am ‘happy the eternal optimist’, but I am also a realist. I am not taken to wishful dreaming but I do like to believe the best. The last thing I do in most situations is believe that the worst case scenario is likely to happen and even though it could happen I live my life happy and peaceful most of the time because the worst case scenario rarely eventuates and I don’t expect it to. It really is a more pleasant way to live, I am sure the benefits in every way outweigh the negatives.
