Is the glass half-empty or half-full?
How many times have we heard this expression?
How might we answer this question? What feels important about this?
What might it mean when we see a glass as half empty or half full?
Might we focus on what we want to recover or on what might be most positive in what we have at the moment? How often might we think about what we “want” or might we be thinking more about what others want from us?
How might we see things right now? If we think of something good that happened today, how might that feel? What feels significant about this?
This past weekend I didn’t get out of bed until 10:30 am! I never do that. I accomplished a lot of food prep in the morning so I could have more time for other things over the next few days. I also sat outside to get some fresh air all afternoon. Though it may not seem like much it gives me energy and confidence for what’s to come, whatever that may be.
Self-efficacy is our belief in our ability to deal with situations when they occur. This belief can induce positive energy, motivation, and awareness of that which is greater.
When we see a half-empty glass, how might our belief in our ability to follow through with our plan of action look?
In years past it would feel difficult to have the confidence to handle things even before they happened. Now I concentrate on creating more and more optimistic moments so I can simply think about how I can fill the glass!
How might it feel to believe that a glass that may look empty might be full and simply has room for more?
Little changes can lead to big results! Focusing on our self-efficacy, having confidence in who we want to be, can elevate our inner power to have the quality of life we choose.
We go through every day with our separate lives on their course. Two individuals having the same challenges may perceive the “glass” differently- one empty, one full. The truth lies within the individual perception.
Which observation feels better? Currently, regardless of the differences between every distinct lifestyle, we are all affected by the ongoing globe-wide crisis.
Will we see the glass half-empty or half-full now? Which viewpoint will help us get through everything stronger?
If we see the glass half-empty, can it be possible we aren’t providing ourselves with the self-care we need?
If we view the glass half-full, may we find something encouraging in each day and provide the best self-care that’s essential to become as strong as we need to be going forward?
There can be power in having a choice. We each can have that power. Let’s take back our power now!
