Is the glass half empty or half full?

Is the glass half full or half empty?  Everyone has discussed this topic at one point in their life or another.  No one can ever agree on an answer.  My personal opinion is the glass is half full – or more.

Recently my husband had the misfortune of doing our income taxes, only to find out we owe Uncle Sam a lot of money.  We must really cut back our spending in order to save enough to pay our bill.  According to my husband this situation is classic half empty.

I disagree.  We may have a hefty bill to pay.  But we will find a way.  We still both have good jobs.  We have a roof over our heads.  We have food on the table.  We have our health.  We have two wonderful daughters, two great son-in-laws, and two of the best grandsons anyone could imagine.  The glass is definitely half full.

I know it is sometimes hard, but you must stay positive, even in hard times.  Negative thinking only breeds more negative thinking.  Next time you are in a situation where you feel the glass is half emply, take a deep breath.  Take a walk.  Call a friend.  I’m sure you will soon realize how many good things are going on in your life.  The glass really is half full – or more.
