Half full or half empty. How do you see the world?
You may have figured out by now I am a half full kind of gal, to a fault at times. Sometimes my optimism gets me so jazzed I am told to scale it back a notch, but hey, I’ll take it. Better than the alternative, right?
I see the good in people.
I see the bright side of situations.
I let things roll off my back.
I usually can’t hold a grudge even if I try.
I believe this is because I express my feelings, bluntly, yet sincerely, and move on. This doesn’t always have me winning popularity contests, but I don’t know any other way to be.
I believe optimism is a learned behavior. Are you willing to learn it or would you prefer to stay stuck in the muck of negativity?
If you are a half full, let’s hear your tips on how to cultivate optimism.
If you are a half empty, let’s hear your plan to work towards a more positive lifestyle.
Let’s not wallow in the wrongs that have been done, instead try to push through them, see how those wrongs will make you grow into a better person, a stronger person.
