Glass. Hmmm. I was struggling a little with this theme, my mind has been occupied with plans for our upcoming holiday :)
And then I found this quote from Pete Doherty. Lovely isn’t it?
Yet, something that I find difficult to believe. My tendency is towards the glass half empty end of the spectrum. I joke about my it’s a disaster moments but really, that inclination: to always see the worst in a situation, always presume the worst outcome; makes for a difficult life.
I keep it under control most of the time, quite successfully actually. But, the slightest glitch: if I’m tired, or busy, or ill; and that glass very definitely becomes half empty again.
I am, of course, my own worst enemy. As I take on too much, set impossible targets, hold myself up against ridiculous ideals; I fail.
Looking at it from a glass half full perspective; this drive to do well is a positive thing. If realistic and controlled… I recognise that this is something that I need to work on and while I have a way to go, I am at least conscious of it. Which my husband will be very pleased to hear!
In the meantime I will leave you with two things. The first is another quote, which I have hanging in my kitchen. A positive look at an empty glass.
And lastly, my wonderful husband gave me this last year, so that the top half of my glass is always full.
