The glass is definitely half empty.
But that does not mean I am pessimistic.
The idea is plain and simple:
The glass is half empty because the glass started out as empty.
But who gets to decide that being empty is bad?
Being empty means holding potential.
Being empty means there is an opening for something else to be.
In fact, as the story goes, the glass must become filled in order for it to even be considered half empty in the first place.
The glass is half empty AND the glass is half ready to be filled with something new or something different.
Time is what allows the glass to sit and to rest and to just be [empty] sometimes.
Now how can that be bad…
