Is Your Glass Half Full, Half Empty, or…?

glass-half-full-2So we’re all familiar with the glass half full/half empty idea.  Recently while on a team video conference, though, I discovered a whole new perspective when an astute partner piped in with a third option that surprised me.

Now we’ve all probably viewed our “glass” from both perspectives.  Whether we’re looking at ourselves, our abilities, our relationships, our finances, or some other aspect of our circumstances, we’ve probably had moments where we’ve seen what’s there – the “half full” part – and others where we’ve bemoaned what isn’t there – the “half empty” part.

So we’re all capable of either perspective in different situations and depending on how we’re feeling at the moment.

Wouldn’t you agree?

Some of us may have practiced cultivating the habit of seeing the glass half full, and even admonishing others, particularly our kids, to do so. 🙂

But here’s what – for me – was an entirely new perspective shared by the partner I mentioned above:

     *The glass is refillable.*

Wow.  Who would have thought?

Rather than bemoaning or settling for just what’s there now – even if we’re seeing the “half full” part – let’s remember that our glass is refillable.

Today’s a new day.

Whether it’s learning a new skill, growing our network or income, developing a new relationship – what’s in our glass isn’t static – it’s refillable.

How does that feel?

How does this impact your approach to your day, your week, your month?

Would love to hear your own response in the comments below.

Your glass is refillable.

Enjoy!
