Which are you?

So, the other day I was taking photos of my water glass (yes, I pretty much take photos of everything and anything these days, so watch out) and I got to thinking about the whole "half glass full, half glass empty" concept.


For me, it isn't a simple one way or the other, it really depends on the event or how I'm feeling.


LIKE; if you are stuck in the long line at the INS building (glass half empty, I mean really half empty) but getting your renewed green card in the mail (glass half full) only because you don't have to stand in that line for another 10 years, YAY!!!!!! (maybe time to become a Citizen?!?!)

OR; you are sitting on the runway in a plane that has been delayed for while, the kids are getting cranky and so are you (glass half empty) but you know eventually you will take off and be on your way to your fav. vaca spot and you can have a Mai Tai by the pool while the kids go for a swim (glass definitely, half full on the rocks :)

(half glass empty?)

(half glass full?)


So, is getting started for the week challenging for you? Do you see getting up on Monday morning as an affront to your dream life? Or do you bounce out of bed ready to embrace the day!

I am a half glass full person in life, but maybe not on a Monday morning :)

Tell me which one you happen to be and why!

Have a Great Day :)

Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.

Mostly I'm a lot like you- can go either way. I try to be optimistic as much as possible, but I can be a big cynical ball of sarcasm too. Usually I start the week off pretty optimistically though (although that's getting harder as slow as etsy has been lately!)

ps- cool waterglass pics! :)

For me mornings are always half empty as I'm what is called a "Bear" in the morning and an "Owl" at night. The rest of the time it can vary, though mostly my glass tends to be half full.
Like the different effects you gave the half-empty to half-full glasses. :)

Cool pictures! My water glass is always half full otherwise life is half empty.

Half full for me!... even on Monday mornings... the grumpiness usually fades fast. ;)

Half Full! Too much good stuff to be thankful for! Granted, this Monday I'm recovering from the flu and not feeling super chipper..but the week is bound to get better!

I am half full all the way! There was a time in my life when I wasn't doing what I longed for but I made it happen. You can have anything your want when you work for it!

I'm a glass half full person 94% of the time. The rest of the time I kinda want to smash the glass. . .

Depends on my mood, LOL. When there is a big change in my life, I tend to think the glass is half empty. Which, I need to change that way of thinking...positive, positive, positive =)

I admit I'm mostly a half empty type of person when it comes to my everyday job but definitely a half full type when I'm home and on days off!

Alice Istanbul said...

Ha :) It mostly depends on my mood, but in life in general, I'm glass half full. I have a lot of blessings to be thankful for :)

Like you and everyone else, it depends on my mood or circumstances! I am so not a morning person, so getting up on any morning is glass half empty! After a couple of hours, it's glass half full.
