“God, give me the strength to change the things I can.
The courage to accept the things that I cannot change.
And the wisdom to know the difference.”
A person that sees the glass half empty is a pessimist.
A person that sees the glass half full is an optimist.
What is a person that sees the empty glass as full?
What is the person that sees the full glass as empty?
Remember the time when money was easy and every day was better and brighter?
Remember when the skies were blue and all we could see were opportunities growing?
Remember when the glass was overflowing?
What did you see then?
What do you see now?
Do you see your glass empty or full?
In the dead of winter do you see the promises of spring?
In the ashes of your burning wings do you see the phoenix rising?
In the sorrow and pain of today do you see the hope and joy of tomorrow?
Do you see the opportunity in the emptiness of your glass?
People tell me:
“You are a fool, rocking the boat!
You’ll never change anything with your questioning.
Give us the answers; that’s what we want and we need.
Give us your wisdom, you so proclaim you have found!”
What is wisdom outside life, but an empty word?
How are the sacred texts to give you light if you don’t burn them?
What is your wisdom and your money good for, if you don’t spend them?
What are all my answers good for if you don’t question life?
