The Bright Side
Let's be honest, most of us look at things from a pretty dark place initially. We may eventually resolve to being more positive but personally, I often expected the worst and hoped for the best. We say to ourselves,"that way we won't be as disappointed."

I have also realized that looking for the best outcome from the start expends less energy(emotionally, mentally and physically) for me than fretting about the bad that could happen.
