"Hope for the best but prepare for the worst."
I have always considered myself an optimist. Even when things don't look the best I always believe it will all turn out ok. I think one part of being truly optimistic is that when things do go bad you still manage to look to the big picture and say "it's ok, things will get better." Although I am optimistic I know there are things beyond my control and I always have hope that whatever comes up we can get through it.
What do you think?
