Are you an optimist, a pessimist, or something else?
On most days, I’m an optimist. For me, the cup is half full and on the way to being over flowing. I generally expect things to work out.
I don’t have a blind trust in God to provide because I believe that humans have responsibility. That being said, I do try to live in such a way that my belief that God provides is evident. So as God and humans work together things tend to work out well.
Not everything works like expected or desired but being pessimistic about it makes me more grouchy. I’d rather try to look toward the positive and try to limit my worry and grouchiness.
But if I’m very frustrated or completely overwhelmed, it may be hard to find the optimistic part of me.
