Or trying to . . .
I don't think of myself as an overly fearful person, but I've come to realize that I do have a fear of things going terribly wrong in the future. This is probably one of the reasons my life motto is "Things could be worse, and they probably will be."
I've worried about the people I love dying and coping with financial difficulties and enduring poor health. Sometimes I feel like disaster is lurking around every corner, and I'm always waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Who knew I was this person?
And so I've decided to look at problems as opportunities, which sounds like a bunch of New Age-y B.S., but whatever. An opportunity seems like a more hopeful thing than a disaster.
