Good Morning and Welcome to Radiate Positivity!
Today I wanted to share with you another concept from that conversation between Matthew McConaughey and Gary V. Matthew is talking about his perspective on the glass you know, half empty, half full. Well, one thing that he said was is that, you know, there’s this positivity, this toxic positivity out there that says, well, I’m not gonna look at that glass.
If it’s half to half-empty, I’m not even gonna subscribe to that. I’m not, I’m just going to deny that it could be half empty, just going to look at it as half full and that’s toxic. So an authentic positivity perspective is recognizing that there’s a glass that it’s half empty or half full, but then the power comes in after you’ve recognized. That is then where’s your perspective? What perspective, what outlook do you take after you’ve seen the good you’ve seen the, the not so good or the bad, or you’ve seen both perspectives, regardless if they’re good or bad, what perspective do you intentionally choose to subscribe to?
And I love this because why, you know, why is this important? Well, it allows us to recognize that there are two sides to a story, and there’s a lot of stories that we can hear two sides to, but it allows us to be educated on both sides, aware on both sides and allows us to make an educated decision and intentional decision of what outlook we truly want to subscribe to. I’d like to add a third part to this, and I’ve always loved the idea of just being thankful for the glass. So regardless if it’s half-full, regardless if it’s half-empty, regardless of whatever’s in there, be thankful for the glass and then take the next step and figure out, okay, we know that it could be half empty.
We know that it could be half full. I’m going to take that awareness. And I’m going to choose my outlook on how I’m going to you know, view the world, view the situation. If you challenge view everything that comes up, I’m going to take this outlook because I’ve at least I’m at least thankful for the glass and I’ve seen both sides. And I choose this for me. I choose the glass half full, but I always recognize that there’s a glass and that it could be half empty. So I just wanted to encourage you to look at that in your life, go out and radiate positivity, have an awesome day, and we’ll talk soon.
