Default Positive Ponder

I've noticed alot of negativity and wanna encourage better perspectives here. For folk to look at the glass as half full, not half empty!

The definition of both "fear" and "hope": believing that something you cannot see will come to pass. The only difference between them is that one is positive and the other negative. I choose the positive! How about you!?

Let me start:


"I fear that charging grizzly is going to eat me alive, slowly. Oh WHY did I ever wear that f*****g 'bear-bell'!?"

vs.

"I hope bear-spray keeps that charging grizzly from eating me alive, slowly, and if not that he chokes on this f*****g 'bear-bell'."



See how much better things can be just by changing your own attitude?

Your turn...

Peace and love;

HockaLouis

I fear that Orangello may take offense to using bears as an example.

I hope that Orangello understands that this is an example only and he was not thought of when discussing bears.

As a pessimist, I find it better to be surprised than constantly disappointed.

I am learning whether the glass is half full or half empty, Is irrelevant. Its figuring out how to drink the glass while the other two are arguing.....

I fear the government might be monitoring my internet coming and goings...

I hope the bastards choke on everything they find...

Did I do it right?

Default So i should try.....

SO i should substitute "Gee I hope my Ex Business Partners don't have any success with their new company since i wouldn't let them take over mine"

from " Gee I hope those Pieces of Ca Ca choke to death on their next meal"

Humanity in it's self is flawed and the possibilities of doing something right is
50 / 50..! All in all , pretty good odds .! I believe that even by accident , there is hope to stumble across the right thing every now and then ..!


Even the most greedy is apt to make a positive mistake to the betterment of the whole..! yeap , it's just a matter of time before someone , somewhere does the right thing , even if not by intention..!

Thank you for your ignorance..!
