Are you a half empty or half full person?

You know the saying, do you view the glass as half empty or half full? I used to be a total half empty person. I was always waiting for the other shoe to drop if something did come around. It seems that in the past few years or so my view has been shifting and I'm becoming more and more of a half full girl. What about you?

I'm a half full kind of person. I always try to see the good things and not the bad. I feel that being happy is a choice. You decide what will influence your moods. So, I do my best to see what is there, not what is gone or missing.

I would have to say I am a half full person. But more so in the past months I have become a 100% full person and much happier and fullfilled. I love to work and be creative and make money by being creative.

Well, I'm definetely a half empty person. I'm not optimistic at all, I feel I have to be pisimistic in order to be protected from the outcomes. As if I have to be ready. My favorite quote is, "Expect the worst, and you'll never be disappointed." I think that we should be neither half full nor half empty persons. A moderate stance is the best choice. I'm trying on doing that, but with no success till now. The pisimistc me always comes to hunt me :(

I am optimistic. I am realistic. I do not expect much from others, I rather give and I am outgoing. But I am realistic, too. I am not going overboard. I guess I was more pessimistic when I was younger. Now I am more self assured. Happy mylotting.
