I do not like to be disappointed. I think its roots come from being the youngest of 7 kids. Things would be planned and inevitably things would go awry and whatever was planned was canceled. I learned at a young age that I would avoid disappointment. I concocted the idea that in order to avoid disappointment I needed to wrap my head around the idea that whatever is planned, plan for the worst case scenario, play the scenario in my head so I would be prepared if the plan did not go through.
What prompted me to write about this was Sunday night, the weathermen had all kinds of scenarios about the weather. Secretly, I was wishing for a snow day, but I knew I would be disappointed if I looked forward to it and it did not happen. So in my head I said, give it up and let it be. I woke up and was ready to go to school, I got the call and I had a snow day. No disappointed.
