I Have A Glass

A positivity portal encouraging optimism


I have a glass…

Whether your glass is half full or half empty, you HAVE a glass!

This means you STILL have the opportunity to fill your glass no matter how empty you feel it is right now.

What’s this site all about?

This website is all about recognising that whether you are a glass half full person or a glass half empty, it is important to say to ourselves ‘I have a glass!’. No matter how empty or full we feel, no matter how naturally optimistic or pessimistic we tend to be, we always need to recognise we have the OPPORTUNITY to fill our glass no matter how empty we feel it is right now. We still have a glass to fill.  

We all have times when we are run down, tired, not feeling it, or just not at our best. Our energy levels can be seen as different amounts in a glass as well as our optimism levels – whether something is half full or half empty. Sometimes we all need lifting or to be given a boost.


This website is here as a ‘positivity portal’ where the central aims are recognising we have a glass that we can fill up or have filled up for us, accepting that there are going to be ups and downs in life, and that our perspective can play a part in increasing the positivity.

I have a glass, and whether my contents are lower or higher right now, I can be happy that I have a glass and I can do what I can to fill it, and to fill other people’s glasses too. Let’s do this, and let’s do this together.

  1. Recognise that we DO have a glass
  2. We have an OPPORTUNITY to fill our glasses
  3. This ENABLES us to fill our glasses and other people’s glasses too.

I will be posting blog posts on this site, and encouraging others to do so too. I hope they will be encouraging, positive and helpful for anyone that reads them.

Best wishes,

Richard Lord.
