are you GLASS HALF FULL or GLASS HALF EMPTY ?

I have always been a glass half full person….I am the person in my family that is always looking at the bright side of things and insisting that everything will get better.  I think this is a good thing because in my family I am the only one that thinks this way.  I usually get an eye roll or a laugh when I am being a cheerleader for the positive, but I think I make a good balance in our family. (again me being glass half full, right?)

I don’t understand the glass half empty attitude (I am sure just as they don’t understand mine)!  Why do you want to focus on the negative when things are what they are…..Shouldn’t we find the positive and move forward the best we can with the situation?

I have come across some interesting arguments that proves both sides may be wrong……

maybe the glass is not half full or half empty!

What do you think?

Optimist says: The glass is half full

Pessimist says: The glass is half empty

Project Manager says: The glass is twice as big as it needs to be

Realist says: The glass contains half the required amount of liquid for it to overflow

Cynic says:  Wonder who drank the other half

Homemaker says:  The glass is dirty and washes it, dries it and puts it away

Inquisitive child says: What’s in the glass anyhow…

Entrepreneur says: The glass is undervalued by half its potential

Grammarian says: Since full and empty are absolute states they are both incapable of being halved or modified in any way

The student says: The question is just another dirty trick played by the teacher to prove that students are dumb

The psychiatrist says:  Is it really that important? Let’s try to think about what is really bothering you.

The sales person says: Either way you are getting more than your money’s worth compared to buying a full glass

I love the idea that the glass is always full….wait tell I tell my kids this one..lol

  1. I am starting to lean more that way, maybe becasue I want to be that person for my kids now. I know we roll our eyes, but the whole time we are thinking, “I hope she is right, because her way sounds awesome”. I love you Mom
