Day 2529: What could possibly go wrong?

These days, I don’t ask myself “What could possibly go wrong?”  because I know the answer might be:

  • every little (and big) thing one’s catastrophizing mind might think of and
  • other things, too.

Asking myself “What could possibly go wrong?”  is not my favorite waste of time, because expected and unexpected things go wrong every minute, every hour, every day.

However, there is a way of asking that question that assumes a positive outcome. For example, what could possibly go wrong if I share all my photos from yesterday?








And what could possibly go wrong if I share another version of “You’re My Favorite Waste of Time”?

Finally, what could possibly go wrong if I ask for comments and express gratitude to all my readers, including YOU?

  1. Nothing and everything and that’s okay

  2. Thank you for putting your two cents in every dang day, Ann.

  3. I can think of a few things that can go either way today, Ann. Hoping they go the best way.

  4. If it goes wrong, you may be able to fix it.
    If you can’t fix it, you may be able to change it.
    If you can’t change it, you may be able to achieve the same result in another way.
    If you run out of options, move on to something else and, while your back is turned, the original problem will either be solved or will no longer matter!

  5. That photo with the statue of the man and his kid – that’s incredible!

  6. Sometimes it takes me a lot of time to come up with an appropriate comment here, but I never think of that as a waste of time.

    I think “fretting” has to do with the nature of someone’s character. It is a waste of time, but it also depends on the situation. I always found it interesting that what goes wrong has more weight than what goes well. Have a nice day, Ann

  8. I think asking what could go wrong is good as long as you don’t dwell on the bad possibilities. It’s good to develop an alternate plan and then go on as you need to.

  9. I often feel if it can go wrong it will, not true but feels like it

  12. i’m expert at catastrophizing. LOL! It’s a skill I’ve honed for more than 60 years! 🙂

    I wasn’t familiar with Lil Bub! 😦
