Harden the f^*k up, your cup is half full!
How’s your cup today? Full, empty, half full or maybe half empty? It’s an interesting concept; The cup half full concept I mean, and even more interesting to me when I come across people who subscribe to one thought process over the other.
You know the type right? There’s people who will continually see the negative aspect of a situation rather than seeing an opportunity; Sure, being blindly positive isn’t that productive either I think, however failing to see opportunity is a very limiting choice. I often wonder if people have the cup half empty ethos due to upbringing, circumstance or maybe influence from others and also why a person would embrace it rather than the half-full ethos; Habit maybe? Victim mentality?
I know many people who have suffered, and are suffering, through adversity and I marvel at their choice to see opportunity or to see negativity. There’s a couple I met on steemit a little while ago who are working through a terminal illness in one of them and they seem like they have it all worked out. Sure, at some stage the inevitable will happen, that happens to us all, but they see their cup as half full and are crushing life! Crushing it in a good way I mean.
They’re like, fuck off cancer, we have a life to lead and I dig that because their cup is half full. They moved to Mexico and live the shit out of life rather than seeing the cup half empty and living life by default. If you’re reading this, you know who you are. Respect!
Anyway, got bullied at school because you wore glasses? Harden up, your cup is half full. Don’t like the way your hair looks today? Cowboy up, your cup is half full. Didn’t get that promotion at work? Harden the fuck up, your cup is half full.
You see, no matter what, you can choose to see your cup as half full. It’s literally that simple. As for me, well today I could not be better even if I tried! I mean that. What a great mentality to take into my day. Oh, by the way...The image is of my morning coffee, obviously full. Now it’s empty because I drank it. MY cup, the cup of me, is full though! Now begone, move along and fill your cup! Have a great day ya’ll.
