Those of you who know me know that for all of my efforts to be an optimist, I am a card-carrying pessimist at heart. I hate it, but it’s true. However, I’ve gotten much better as I age. How? By simply remembering an amazing anonymous phrase: “People who wonder whether the glass is half empty or half full are missing the point. The glass is refillable.” So the next time you reach for that negative pessimism – and if you’re like me, there will be a next time! – remember that glass is refillable. So whether it’s half empty or half full really might not matter. Often, it’s how we decide to “refill” the glass that will make all the difference.
