Project Grateful 167: A lesson in looking at a glass half full

Today I conquered 2 parks! Central Park and Battery Park!




I went to Central Park post lunch for a walk with a friend, Starbucks in hand like a true New Yorker!

There were plenty of people in the park for some reason, its as if nobody had to work! It was sweltering tho, humid and hot! Reminded me of Singapore!

Since I had to rush out of the house in the afternoon, I left the laundry half unfolded on the bed and zoom-ed out. I meant to do it before Kris got home but got distracted by making a picnic dinner. Kris came back saw the pile of clothes and said, ‘Don’t worry I’ll fold it later. ‘While enjoying our romantic picnic at the park, he mentioned a list of things he was happy about today and one of them was, ‘I’m grateful that someone does my laundry for me.’

I think Kris is really one of those very optimistic people, because he comes home from a long day at work and instead of saying, “Aiya! Clothes all messy on the bed! He thinks, Oh so nice someone did my laundry for me!’ Its a small issue really but it shows how important it is to always look at the glass half full! Many people forget that!

I’m very grateful to be reminded of that today. You can look at your own life and find a million faults! Or you can look at your life thru happy glasses and always find something to be thankful about.

I’m very lucky to be married to a truly optimistic person! Always happy and positive! He’s a joy to be around!

So I must remember, instead of thinking, ‘OH CRAP ROOT CANAL! I must think! Oh luckily there is the invention of anesthetic!
