You have the Glass
I was having dinner with my friend Andi and we were discussing
the concept of the glass being half full or half empty.
Andi shared that she was just happy to have a glass. What
a great perspective. Oftentimes, we look for what is missing
or what we don't have instead of being thankful for what
is. Perhaps the glass is half full, but at least we have
Often we miss the blessings in our life because we are
too busy focusing on what is missing. Instead of focusing
on what you do not have, be thankful for what you do have.
Maybe the glass is not as full as you want it to be, but
if you keep focusing on what you do not have, you will miss
the joy of what you do have.
Are you thankful for your glass?
Being thankful for what
you have = Counting your blessings
