May 5 – The Glass

Is the glass half-full, or half-empty?

Hold on, which glass?

I’m a glass-half-full kind of person, to be honest.

There is always the other side of things- if you believe good things will come, then you are always looking at an opportunity or a failure as some type of growth. Yes, bad things happen to me too, but I turn them around and see them as a lesson, or as knowledge.

Now, sometimes I can be a glass-half-empty kind of girl too. Even though I think it mostly depends on the situation. I’ve noticed is usually for temporary actions like driving, for example. I hate traffic, and I live in Toronto, I know…

On that note, Coronavirus. It appeared in the world for us to take a break and focus on what is really essential and important in our lives. Yes, it is a pandemic, and there are people dying, but the world didn’t end because you haven’t gone to the salon to do your nails, right? You are at home with your family, or alone in a condo, but there is food in the fridge, and you are healthy. This is going to be over soon. Yes, the sooner the better, but also we want to make sure that once we go out there we won’t get sick. I am in for another month, but three? That’s when I’ll start looking at things differently.

Aside from that, glass-half-full all the way!!

Thank you for coming to my TED talk.


My inspiration today comes from the WordPress.com writing prompts guide.

  1. Maria,
    This post is very interesting, especially because nowadays most people tend to perceive the glass as half empty rather than half full. Since they are only focusing on what they are not able to do or lost, instead of counting their blessings and what they have. On a normal basis I am a ” half full kinda person”, because I am very positive toward any life situation that I face, however, since this whole pandemic started I noticed that I cannot stop complaining over silly things. Therefore, I guess deep down nobody is a half full or half empty type of person but both.
    Best Regards,
    Lourdes Rodriguez.
