Is It a Half Empty or Half Full Glass?

Half Empty or Half Full Glass?

While it’s called the Half Empty Glass, it might just as well have been called the Half Full Glass. I suppose it all depends on your unique perspective. [Image shared by Amazon]

Finding balance in life can be difficult for some of us. And when the balance is disrupted, we wind up viewing the world in a certain way. If our outlook is primarily negative, we can become pessimists, expecting that everything and everyone around us is bound to disappoint us. Seeing a glass on a table not filled to capacity, we might say that the glass is half empty. Pessimists aren’t a lot of fun at parties.

If our outlook is primarily positive, we can become optimists, expecting that everything and everyone around us is full of wonder and potential. Seeing a glass on a table not filled to capacity, we might say that the glass is half full. Optimists are usually a lot more fun at parties than pessimists, but they can get annoying if their optimism is too over the top.

Most of us know that we’re due good as well as bad as we live our lives, but for the optimists and pessimists among us, the Half Full Glass serves as a reminder that coping with it all is affected by our respective perspectives.

Half Full Glass Is Made of Borosilicate Glass

What makes a glass made of Borosilicate glass so special? Borosilicate glass goes into the making of the world-famous Pyrex brand of fine kitchenware. This type of glass is more resistant to thermal shock and is considered by many home chefs to be a crucial addition to any serious kitchen’s arsenal.

Not that the Half Full Glass is meant to be taken seriously, mind you. But it should stay around longer than regular glasswork that’s prone to breaking.

Here are some of the features of the Half Full Glass:

  • Its double-walled construction adds to durability.
  • It holds any liquid of your choosing in the top part of the glass.
  • It’s five-inches tall and approximately three inches wide.
  • It’s etched with the words “Half Empty” as well as “Half Full.”
  • It satisfies both optimists and pessimists at the same time.

So whether you’re an optimist or a pessimist, or you want to amuse your notoriously optimistic or pessimistic friends or family, the Half Full Glass is a fine addition to the home. Get your own today!
