As Life Rolls On

As a friend of mine always says, "We plan, God laughs." You never know what life will bring, but the ride can be a blast!

Glass Half Empty Syndrome

Drives me NUTS...............people who can only see the negative in things. There are those in this world who only see what is wrong with someone, a situation, a group of people, etc., etc., etc. There is always someone or something at "fault". They look at how something needs to be "fixed" because it is all wrong, aaaaaaaaaand, they are the ones who have all the answers as to how that will be done. What a sad way to live life.

Life is much better if you look at things from the opposite perspective. Instead of looking at what is wrong, we need to look at what is right with someone, something, a group of people etc., etc., etc. You find the positive and build on it and soon enough everything has come around on it's own without needing "fixing". The greatest thing about this is that people end up feeling good about themself, and in the end run everyone benifits, individual, family, community, and so on, and so on, and so on.............

I guess my challenge is that as much as they frustrate me, I need to find the positive in those who have the "glass is half empty syndrome."

    people like that are very draining. While we can all be negative at times, it's tough to be around someone who does nothing but complain.
