Preconceptions

King MidasSometimes, we find ourselves in situations, or potential situations, were we are a little unsure of what the outcome may be. Our minds race, we mull over the possibilities, the what ifs, the maybes, and it can be all too easy to form ideas in our minds as to how things will pan out.

That’s fine, and perfectly normal, as long as we don’t let these expectations run away with us. Having a preconceived idea is one thing, but pinning our hopes on that idea is a recipe for disaster. Things rarely, if ever go exactly as we imagine.

So the trick is to keep a level head, let events unfold as they will, and be tolerant, or the inevitable differences between what we expect, or would like, and what actually comes to pass.

As someone once said ‘Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it’. Conversely it has also been said that ‘That thing you wished for, the thing you never got, might have been the most fortunate moment you could ever imagine’. So muse way, daydream to your hearts content, but remember that, at the end of the day, the reality of the situation will become clear soon enough.
