Half-full or Half-empty?

I don’t quite know where I fall on the scale or if even falling is the mark of a pessimist.

Apparently, being optimistic about life keeps you from dying early.

According to research, the insanely positive types can get to live for an extra 11-15%. That means that if I was to be knocked down by a bus, squashed by a train, or just fell off a cliff (at this very moment), it would not have happened for about another eight and a half years, if I was thinking right.

In that time, I could probably experience another sitting of Trump madness, watch the UK economy implode (due to BREXIT), see totalistarian populism replace reason, and witness my first mass extinction event.

Just saying…

      1. That’s true. But on the other hand it can lead to self-fulfilling prophecies or making a habit of only noticing the bad. Missing out on the good that’s right there next to the bad.
        Philosophy is fun! I could put on my toga and talk about it all day! lol
