Psalm 112:7 KJV
 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord .
Sometimes we are afraid to hope that good things may happen, so we imagine the worst case scenario so that whatever happens we will not feel bad because we were already expecting the worst. This is a waste of time because as long as you are alive to this point you have a track record of successfully getting through the worst that have already happened, and thus there is no need to dread the future. “Today expect something good to happen to you no matter what occurred yesterday” (Sarah Ban Breathnach).
