Half Empty or Half Full

Missy explores the age-old question of whether a glass is half-empty or half-full. A person’s response often reflects their state of mind and personality type, and very often people have different answers. But Missy gives a new look on this question and gives you a different perspective on whether a glass is half-empty or half-full.


  • I always said half full but if I do an honest assessement and I would said some of my life are half empty. I just tell what people want to hear instead of full truth. So the people get half truth from me.

  • Depending on what the Lord’s will is to full fill the life perspective of half empty or Half full in life generally. There is always a reason for anyone’s life journey for the Lord to teach and guide our steps of life family, friends, or employment or self employment or seeking any kind of endeavors in life. This is indeed a very good question to ponder! Susie

  • Even if the glass does not have water in it, it is still full. Air. Particles, etc. Just because people cannot see something that does not mean it is not there. We miss a lot in life because we assume (you did another vlog on ‘assume’ and I think this relates). Hugs! Nae

  • ” It doesnt matter if the glass is half empty or half full. Be thankful that you have a glass- and grateful that there’s something in it ”

  • The glass has 4oz of water in it. That’s my view – not pessimistic or optimistic, realistic. I can choose to appreciate the water or I can choose to wish it were fuller/wish there were something different, but it is what it is. Every day I have to choose which way I view it – realistically, there will be days when it feels like it’s half empty, but if I recognize that is a choice I can choose a different view tomorrow.

    Also, I heard a good engineer joke: An optimist says the glass is half full. A pessimist says it’s half empty. An engineer says the glass is twice as big as it needs to be. 🙂
