Is the glass half empty or half full? Have you ever heard that expression before? Well if you haven't it means that if you are a negative person you would look a a glass of water that was exactly half full and say that it was half empty. However if you are a positive person you would look at the same glass of water and say that it was half full. So what would you say? I would say that it was half full because I like to be positive.
Being positive or negative is part of your personality, just like being nice or shy or funny etc. I think it is very important to try to be as positive as possible. Why? Well could you imagine how much better the world would be if everyone was positive? I think that the world would be a lot better! Being positive is a lot better for yourself too! Did you know that being positive motivates you to eat healthy and be active? Which is obviosly good for your health!
But what exactly does being positive mean? Well in the dictionary it says that being positive is: a disposition or tendency to look on the more favorable side of events or conditions and to expect the most favorable outcome. So basically you just have to expect good things to happen? Yes, but I think that that is only one part of it. To be a positive person you have to believe this all the time, even when your sad and you have that feeling that nothing will ever get better, you have to put a smile on your face and believe that everything will get better. Its pretty much impossible to believe that all the time and probably no one has ever done it. However the best thing that we can do is to smile and try to be the most positive person you can be. Then the world will be a much happier place!
Life Lesson: Make sure your glass is always half full, and remember that there is no such word as "can't"
