After focusing on personal, societal, and planet problems most of my life, I'm thinking and feeling at two-thirds empty. I'm clawing my way to "half."

With the black cloud our family has over it, no matter HOW HARD any of us try, it always goes badly...

Always half full! Blessings abound if we will look more at what we have than at what we do not have or simply want. If one cannot see their blessings, look around. Half empty=negative focus.

I look for the positive in most situations. If I feel unhappy about something I do something about it.

Not a glass in the universe big enough to hold all the goodness.

Drink the remainder in one quaff; and ask the bartender to refill the glass in celebration of the New Year.

I learned my lesson the hard way. I no longer have ANY carry-over credit balances. Zero debt.

I got rid of all our credit cards years ago. The interest is ridiculous! You end up paying a lot more in interest than the the cost of the items purchased!

Why buy more than I can pay for? The federal government does that, which causes inflation.

My credit card pays me, in the form of points. I do not want to pay my credit card company.

I am a worry-wart and a negativr person, so half-empty would be the answer. But, what people don't see is that I am a pragmatist, or a realist. So, it's is also not half full or half empty, but right down the middle.
