“Expect the best; plan for the worst.”

“Measure twice; cut once.”

This has always been my modus operandi, managing to think of how to avoid as many goofs as might occur. What might they say? What if there’s mud? What if we decide to…? etc. etc.

And it’s darn right exhausting. But ever practical and so it makes my little head hurt sometimes not mention my stress levels get good and spiky now and again.

Is there a way to change this? Just plan for only the best?

I think back to my early twenties when literally there was no “extra” for planning. Limited resources all the way around becausically meant whatever it was is the best plan going forward.

And I survived. I’m still here twenty years later though I do cringe and some memories and realize my angels really protected me time again. Ah-ha says a little voice – maybe your angels could use a little more excitement again.
