I often have people ask me whether I am a glass half full or a glass half empty kind of guy. So I always have to ask them “It depends, which way am I going with it?” See if I’m currently drinking it, then it’s half empty. If I’m currently filling it, then it’s half full. I generally try to look at things with a positive attitude like the previous example, but every once in a while the negativity can slip in. From time to time we find ourselves in a situation that just gets our cackles up and before we know it we develop a bad attitude about the whole thing. Which of course only makes a bad situation worse. Because not only are we in a bad situation, but we’re also angry and frustrated. Sometimes you just have to remind yourself that you are in charge of your own attitude and you can either make the situation better (or at least tolerable) or you can continue to make yourself miserable. It’s your choice.

So next time you are faced with a partly cloudy day, just remind yourself that it is also partly sunny. I don’t care what the weatherman says.
