Half Full V.S. Half Empty

So, today’s been a very confusing day…

. . .

I woke up being super positive and ready to conquer the day, but then, I checked my emails and read a message that really lowered my spirits.
I didn’t want to conquer the day anymore, I said: “what’s the point, something else like this will probably happen again today, and I don’t know if I can handle it twice in one day.”.

At first read through the email, I thought “well, that just ruined my year.”. I felt as if that message was the end of the world (over exaggerator alert) because it was about something I’ve been really looking forward to ALL year.
And, to be honest, until I started writing this, I was feeling very done with life (I didn’t know how to feel or what to do anymore).
After my little ‘pity party’, I realized that I can’t let this get to me because there are so many more opportunities out there waiting for me (even though I feel like this one was gonna be great, there will be better ones).

. . .

So, this morning, after that scenario, I realized I need to look at the glass as half full because if my life depends on one email, I will never be truly happy; I will start to give up too quickly and I will never reach my full potential.

Also, while writing this post, I am still pretty disappointed, sad and angry, but I got another message that revived my spirit a little, it just requires a little more patience than the other one (which is something I’m working on).

Like they say (I don’t know who ‘they’ are, but I hope ‘they’ are right):

“Great things come out of patience; Just keep a good attitude while waiting!”

So, I guess what I’m trying to say in this post, is that; although the first opportunity that comes your way might be the most exciting because it’s within reach; you can’t get discouraged and give up if it falls through because with a little more patience you will get an even better opportunity that’s waiting for you around the corner.

~Keep walking and turn the corner to that next opportunity!~

Because even though you think you waited forever for the first opportunity, just take it as practice to be patient for the next, better opportunity.

And, remember to, practice patience everyday!

The glass should always be half full because your life is in the works!
A
nd, when you work on something, it takes time; just like how it takes time to fill a glass with water; it takes time to make your life what you want.

~Never give up on your dreams!~
~Something better is coming!~
~Stay optimistic!~

Thanks for reading! I hope this gave you courage to stay optimistic about your future!

  1. Where you think you are in life really does depend on how you’re looking at it–what perspective, what angle. “it takes time to make your life what you want.” So very true, and too often I forget that. Sometimes we can be too eager in trying to get what we want. Thanks for the insightful post! 🙂
