In Others’ Words: Realizing the Glass is Refillable
Y’all know I’ve switched sides several times on the glass half empty vs. glass half full debate.
I’ve gone from seeing the glass half empty to seeing the glass half full. Then I embraced a friend’s comment: There’s always something in the glass.
Loved that perspective. Still do.
But today I’m believing the truth that the glass is always refillable.
Sometimes I get worn out. Sometimes I don’t have enough energy for the day. Sometimes it’s all just too much.
And it’s not always illness or too many demands or disappointments that tip my glass over and drain it. I can be poured out by good things too. Deadlines, a.k.a. “living the dream. Or celebrations. Yes, there can be too much of a good thing.
At times like these — both the good and the bad — I need to remind myself to stop and refill my glass.
With rest. With quiet. With family and friends. With walks outside. Good music. Times where I listen and times when I am heard. And moments when I refill someone else’s glass.
In Your Words: Is your glass half empty, half full … or does it need to be refilled? How will you refresh your perspective today?
