Default uh-oh

I was just thinking about how things are going in my life right now, and it'* kinda freaking me out. My car is running perfect (or as close to perfect as it'* been since I got it). Things are going awesomely between me and my girl. Since I'm out of school for the summer, I have no financial needs (GAS). Now it'* time for something bad to happen. So now I'm bracing myself. Expect a rant here pretty soon guys .

Pretty much the way it goes for me. I have wayyy to much stress for a 16-almost-17 year old.

Isnt that kinda being negative. Thinking something bad will happen. Can it lead you to make something huge out of something small. Sure life is that way like a rollercoaster. But what about the attitude you have about it. In my psych classes we called this Paranoid.
Can't unfortunate things happen for good reasons? Ofcoarse not ALL unfortunate things!!! Im generalizing. Be happy, stay in the now. Enjoy it. Have some fun, spread it around... Just my two cents worth.

The same thing happens to me with money. People always wonder why I wait until the last minute to send in my taxes for my refund; its so I don't have to freeze my tail off fixing something in winter. April 15th gets me thru to May at the earliest and its usually much warmer. LOL

The way I'm having to think recently to not go completely insane is to keep a positive outlook on everything unless there is good reason to see things any other way. So stay positive, if life hands you lemons...squeeze those suckers over some good seafood!
