It is our choice to pursue life as if the glass were perceived to be either have full or half empty. A life centered on gratitude or one based in pity. To be appreciative or deprived. A robust pursuit of happiness or to put a hold on life.
There are overwhelming occurrences in life that will set each of us back. There is little to nothing one can do with these events, other than to look forward from what we already have and to anticipate what goodness will come next. Never ideal, but knowing more good may come to us when we are thinking of the glass as being half-full.
Gratitude attracts more good things for you to be grateful for and more good people to be grateful with.
“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” — Elkhart Tolle —
