GLASS HALF FULL?
What really matters is that there is champagne! That's what matters and as soon as I can reach for it, it will be all gone. I love me some champagne.
In life, the half empty and half full question might seem to be important on the surface. But does it really matter, in the end, if you see the blue sky amid the black clouds or the black clouds covering the blue sky?
The glass half full people will face far more disappointments because they are always looking at what is right about everything. So when everything goes suddenly very wrong, they are more devastated and shocked by the turn of events. On the other hand, the half empty people expected the worse and were somewhat prepared for it, no surprise. Who handles it better? They'll both get through it. Half full will be finding the good that must eventually come from this event and will thereby, start a positive search and a path of the good things will begin to occur. Half empty will feel and see the deepest of pain because there is no tomorrow and nothing will ever be better. This is life. Usually a dark and not particularly happy life, but the life they can imagine and will live.
So, for me, I'll take the frequent disappointments and I'll be surprised when things fall apart because I do love a full glass of champagne! And on the occasion of the really dark and cloudy times, I may temporarily give in, but you can be sure that eventually I will see the glass of champagne and once again all will be right with the world.
