It’s common to query whether people see the glass as half full or half empty, but a meme posted by Rajyavardhan Rathore posed this question in a new light.

Rathore pointed out that the glass is always full – it is just that sometimes it is half full of water and half full of air. Seeing the situation in this light can open up new possibilities: there is no longer obvious scarcity, rather a reframing.

Think about your “glass” from a new perspective. Instead of seeing it half empty, can you see it as half full of something else? Being alone might not be lonely, rather an opportunity to refresh. Having half the time may mean a chance to set priorities. Not getting a job may mean you are free to pursue other options.

You’ll be happier if you focus on what is in the glass instead of what isn’t.
