Sounds like a rehash of an old Mark Twain line. He said that he always expects the worst. That way, if it comes to pass, he's not disappointed. If it doesn't, then he is pleasantly surprised.

I always expect the best...and look for it...but am not surprised when often the worst is what happens...

Good quote....

Hugs my friend!

My guess is to keep your eyes open and be prepared for anything, the good and the bad.
