Here in America, it’s considered common knowledge by many people that black cats represent bad luck, but there’s always that other end of the spectrum. For example, did you know that in Great Britain and Ireland a black cat is considered good luck? People’s interpretation of and viewpoints on things vary based on location as well many other factors and, of course, the individual in question.
The classic glass of water example is another type of perspective problem in regard to the whole half full or half empty dilemma. If you look at the situation literally, are you filling the glass up or are you pouring it out? Maybe society’s tendency to overreact to things has simply made the glass twice as big as it needs to be. Ever think of that? And just like the light that hits that water, we’re bent on trying to convince others that we’re right. It’s time that we start doing instead of telling. It’s time that people turned off their televisions, got off of their couches, and went out to go make a difference in this world. I have a feeling it could use it.
And now here’s a quote to make you think about your own perspective on life:
“Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses.”
― Alphonse Karr
