I certainly hope for the best. And even in stressful times I think there will be a positive outcome. Someone owed me a substantial amount of money for work done. When More than one year later, I was finally paid and the money used to finance a major business venture. If I was paid on time I would not have had that money to transact that business venture at that time. So for me everything happens for a reason.
I try to prepare for the worst, so that if it does happen, I'm ready! Though as my mother always says, whatever happens it will be the one thing you didn't expect, so partly my approach is to expect the worst and then it won't happen.... I hope for the best but am realistic about the chances of actually achieving it.
