Ok, so in January most of Australia burned up. Then in February we almost started World War III with Iran. March saw a global pandemic effect every country in the world. Then this month sees wildfire on their way towards the old Chernobyl nuclear poower plant. ……..*sigh*…….. really how can this year get any worse? Well, funny you should ask that question because that is exactly what I asked Twitter this week with the hashtag #How2020CouldGetWorse. Doom and gloom are everywhere that we look right now. So why not think of ways that it could get worse! Now before you write me nasty letters about how i’m just being negative let me assure you………I AM! I’m what you call a optimistic pessimist. I may look on the dark side but I’m still positive about the outcome. During this time of upheaval I think it is exactly how we should be dealing with this difficult time. Let’s collectively look on the dark side of what could happen! Lord knows things COULD get worse, but by already planning for those things we can get ready for them. Also, if those dark things DON’T happen it’s a little relief in our hearts that it didn’t happen. I actually was a boy scout for a few years and their motto is “Be Prepared”. It’s best to have a plan, even if those outcomes don’t come true. It’s a small comfort that even if the worse befalls us, we still can get thru it. Think of it as an emotional safety net. Plan for the worst, expect the best. And as it turns I’m not the only one that thinks this way because this hashtag REALLY took off on Twitter. The tag trended to the #4 spot in the U.S. and the #2 spot in the U.K. and Canada. With over 14,000 tweets to go thru this week’s list is a little bit longer but hey, better safe then sorry. So check out the top list below and don’t forget to join me every Tuesday at 11 am EDT. for the next exciting episode of “Hashtag, You’re It”.
P.S. don’t forget to check back on this list in December to see if any of them came true!
