    How do you 'view a glass'?

    I guess we are all familiar with this saying, but the 2 options are:
    -As half EMPTY.
    -As half FULL.

    I guess I have to say for me, it depends on my mood. When I feel loads of bad stuff happened me lately, I see it half empty. But at this moment and in the past few months it was surely HALF FULL smile.
    What abut you?

    I don't see it either way. To me, the glass is completely full. Half of it is water, the other half is air.

    I see a glass as full of potential no matter what is in it.

    You make any situation good or bad depending upon your outlook and your creativity.

    For example, during one of the lowest points of my life, emotionally, when several things had been going wrong at the same time, I decided to laugh. I didn't feel like laughing, but I forced myself to do it. I continued to do it until it felt natural. As soon as I reached that goal, it really did feel natural. My entire body smiled.

    Full of potential. You decide the direction of that potential.

      Lone77star: "Full of potential. You decide the direction of that potential." Great advice, I will take it.

    I agree with lone77star; since the water is still pouring in it depicts potential. Bravo lone77star.

    For me it all depends on what day it is. My mood also changes on a daily basis. On Monday, I could see it as half full, Tuesday, maybe half empty.

    I would have to agree with the questioner--it kind of depends on how everything has been going at the time.
    However, I'll share something I read about this recently, and it struck me funny:

    "The pessimist sees the glass as half empty; the optimist sees it as half full.  The engineer sees the glass as being twice as large as it needs to be."

    I see it plainly as a glass with water. Similarly - I see life as it is. But that could just be me.

    I would defiantly say I'm a glass half full kind of person. I like to look at the bright side of things.
