How full is YOUR glass?

We all have those days when we wake up on the wrong side of the bed, or something happens during the day to just put you in a foul mood.  In every life there comes some rain, and possibly some severe thunderstorms too. Every second of every day, whether we even realize it, we make choices. One of the biggest choices that we make is how we view our world.  We have all heard the expression about your glass being half full.  Although it’s a cliché, it is actually very true.  We can choose to be negative or positive every moment of the day.

Believe me, this is not easy, but simply being aware that you do have this choice can be very empowering.  When you have a negative outlook, you are actually allowing yourself to be a victim; a victim to your circumstances, a victim to someone else, and a victim to yourself.  When you think about it, being a victim is really not a whole lot of fun.  When you choose to have a positive attitude, you are owning your life and everything that happens in it.

Next time you have a negative thought or attitude, remember that you can make a choice to change how you react.  You may not be able to change what happened, but you can change your attitude about it and even find some humor in it all.  It’s hard to frown when you are laughing.

“A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort” -Herm Albright
