I look out for the bad things, know there is bad that can happen to me, and expect bad things to happen to me. I do fear everyday that one great and terrible thing may happen.. This is when I feel paranoid, angry or otherwise negativly towards the world. But deep down, when the clouds of confusion are gone I realize that good can happen and has happened to me. My life is a wide road with obstacles, distractions and terrors but it also has friends, fun challenges and lessons.
The way I see it, good and bad can and has happened. I just look out for both so I can never truly be surprised. :):
