You know the old saying. Pessimists see the glass half empty, optimists see it half full. That's true as far as it goes, but it assumes a static situation. One that we can't do anything about. Yet, most of the time, that's not how life works. Our days are so full of interactions with each other. And people (unlike glasses) are either getting fuller or emptier in any giving situation. This week, let's not just see the glass half full; let's try to help make sure we are adding to other people's lives. Even the most dogged pessimist may see a glass full when you've undeniably added help to a life that needed it.
