Do You What If Up Or What If Down?

The other night was my son’s very first football game…ever.  As I pulled up to the stadium I thought to myself, “I hope his team wins.”  But, beneath that I listened to the real conversation taking place in my mind which was, “Would be nice if they won.”  Which truthfully meant, “Expect the worst and hope for the best.”

I immediately stopped myself and asked myself why it was that I didn’t expect the best but instead expected the worst.  I then asked myself where else in my life do I “Expect the worst and hope for the best”.  Doh!  Everywhere!!   Why don’t I expect the best?
