A lot of people, myself included, can wonder ‘what if’ quite a bit.
“What if it rains?” “What if we’re late?” “What if the party is really boring?” There are so many ‘what if’s you could wonder. “What if this bad thing happens? What if this worse thing happens? What if this worst thing happens?”
One day, I decided if someone was going to wonder all of the negative ‘what if’s they might as well go the opposite extreme and look on the bright side too.
“What if there is a rainbow?” “What if we’re late because if we left on time we’d be in a car accident?” “What if the party is a lot of fun and you don’t want it to end?”
I’m not exactly a super positive person, and I’m not usually a super negative person either. I’m just somewhere in the middle.
Once while I was with two of my sister and a couple of our friends, we were eating dinner at Chic-fil-A and it was decided, “Samantha’s optimistic, Kristin’s pessimistic, and I’m just over here eating.” It fits. 🙂
So don’t go overboard worry over what could go wrong, because it could go extremely well. Now, it may go neither and be some where in the middle, which I feel is probably the most likely for everyday life.
The last time I went to New Hampshire, I went in October. The leaves were supposed to be in their peak. All bright and beautiful, but…. it didn’t work out that way.
Most of the trees weren’t all bright and vibrant, but every now and then we would see and bright tree. One bright tree and a mountainside filled with… not so bright trees.
Maybe, even if the bad ‘what if’ happened, maybe it wouldn’t be as bad as you first thought it would.
Maybe it’ll rain, maybe there won’t be a rainbow, but you could still play in it. 😀 (as long there isn’t any thunder and lightning, ’cause that would be a different story…) 😉
