Round two of the nostalgic reblogs. Enjoy.
‘Is the cup half full or half empty?’
A simple, yet revealing brain teaser; every answer different from the last. Some say yes, some say no and some may even say it depends. Now you’re probably wondering if it’s such a simple question, then why think twice about it?
As each day goes by, we are able to choose and experience different paths. As we follow our so called “destiny”, we tend to build up certain feelings or emotions. These feelings act as water in a cup. Little by little, we begin fill these cups with drops of our thoughts, our feelings, our emotions.
A drop of water is nothing compared to a cup. It seems as if the water will go on forever, never being able to reach the top. Now there are those who empty their cups and those who believe it really will go on forever. After a while, they begin to form a habit, pouring everything into their cup; never emptying, never sharing. But what does it matter? It goes on forever, right?
But what happens when it actually does reach the top?
Simple. It begins to overflow. The cup you felt so comfortable putting all of your bad days, nightmares, heartaches in begins to empty itself. But where does it all go?
This unwanted splash of water is finally revealed to the outer space. Will it be cleaned up or left there for others to slip on?
In the end, it’s your cup. You can choose to empty it or let it fill up.
Now, ‘is the cup half full or half empty?’
