Ready or Not

I was writing to myself in my journal the other day, and stopped when I scribbled the following:

...always being ready for the worst makes you miss out on all of the best.

It's so simple and yet I didn't see it.  I've always seen the opposite of optimism as negativity, but I never considered how destructive paranoia and over-preparedness can be...  Sure, I didn't expect the worst, but I considered and planned for it the way I planned for 'best case scenarios'.  It seemed like the most reasonable way to go about planning.  It still does...

I suppose there's a reason why they say 'ignorance is bliss'.
