365 Inspirations—227: The Glass Half Full

"For myself I am an optimist—it does not seem to be much use being anything else."Winston Churchill

Are you a glass half empty or a glass half full kind of person? I tend to look at the glass half full side of life. I choose to see the positive in things.  I wasn't always like this. I used to focus on the negative side of things. I saw everything from that angle. I used to think of what ifs and imagine all the things that might go wrong with an idea or situation.

I don't know what changed me. Perhaps I just got tired of looking at the negative side of things. I got tired of being a downer.

Sometime between being negative and being positive, I took up yoga and meditation and these really helped me to see things as they are and not as I'd like them to be. Things were neither good nor bad, they just were what they were.

Now I see things with a slightly positive angle. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt and I look on the bright side of things. This has changed quality of my life immensely. I am writing 365 Inspirations this year on my blog and this has helped me to focus on the things that are positive in my life.

How about you? Are you a glass half-empty or glass half-full kind of person?

  1. I always say to just drink whatever is in the glass and not worry about the volume!
