Day 20: Are you an optimist, a realist, or a pessimist? Which would you rather be?
Over the last few years, I think I've managed to mostly change to a realist rather than a pessimist. Instead of naturally thinking something bad is going to happen -unless I'm going through a particularly rough patch in my life- I try to see things with logic. "Yes, something bad might happen, but something good might happen too."
Instead of seeing a glass half empty or half full, I usually see it with 50% water.
Eventually, I'd like to become an optimist. Not a blind optimist, where I convince my hopes to soar only to have them crushed again and again. I want to stay logical and realistic. But I'd rather expect good things to happen than bad things. I'd rather see the good in people instead of expecting their worst traits to come out.
Ultimately, I want to see things the way they are, but still keep a glimmer of hope in my heart.
Today's questions are...
1.) Are you an optimist, a realist, or a pessimist?
2.) Which would you rather be?
