When you are under stress, discouraged, overwhelmed, or anxious, finding time to find perspective is always a good choice.

Yesterday I found a wonderful quotation from an unknown source that reframes an old adage and introduces a reflective question that I’d never thought of.

Is the glass half empty, half full, or twice as large as it needs to be? ~Author Unknown

Particularly these days, as our economy goes through its downturn and we all adjust to our changing financial worlds, isn’t this an interesting way to think about the proverbial glass? Indeed, the new option that is introduced here is that, in addition to deciding whether to feel hopeful or discouraged, we can also make choices about whether or not to adjust our expectations.

The question brings me to think about my values, and offers me an opportunity to widen and deepen my perspective. I step back and look with new eyes at what is familiar and may have become rote. Here is a chance to change!

I love how something like this reminds us, so creatively, that there are multitudes of ways to look at things.

  • How big is your glass?
  • Are you laboring under overlarge expectations?

How do you find time to find perspective in your life? I’d love to hear!
