Weekly Photo Challenge … Optimism
I have optimism and believe that it has been my salvation as a person who suffers from depression. However, it is not always considered as a valuable attribute; often seen as unrealistic. My partner is pessimistic and realistic; he will see the disadvantages of a new opportunity before the good. Perhaps, when considering a family holiday he will think about the cost, travel problems suggesting that the temperature should not be too hot or too cold. Much thought will go into the planning, so ensuring no problems en route. He sees my fearless attitude as fun; but at times misplaced.
I, on the other hand will only see the joyful aspects, will not baulk at temperature, language or uncomfortable culture. I enjoy an adventure. His attitude has stood us in good stead with wonderful holidays organised to every detail; but sadly leaves not much space for spontaneity and happy accidents.
How does one represent this half full half empty cup dilemma in a photograph? I don’t know.
