Glasses – Half-Full, or Half-Empty?
There are at least two kinds of people in the world.
The first kind is convinced the glass is half full, and insistent on enforcing derision on all those that won't salute his/her flag of -fullness. I like to refer to these people as -- the completely full of it group.
The second kind of person, realizes that there are a myriad of distinctions that can be made about issues, and people, and that the half full vs. half empty distinction is about as useful as all the rest of the brain-dead adages used by those who are trying to railroad some lame-a$$ idea on the American public. I like to refer to these people as _folks_.
But ... that's just me ... or is it?
A positive mental attitude is quite helpful for success, health, and happiness. But, I must choose, the places for positive outlook or critical thinking in my life.
What about you?
