Is the cup half empty---or half full?

The long holidays have been a strange mix for me. I could have dwelled on the negative, but I prefer to take the view that the cup is not only half full, but heading towards overflowing. Sure there were some cardio issues for myself and an ongoing issue for a loved one. Yes, the holiday was one in which opportunities were missed as both of us spent time being looked after by our most excellent health system. We are thankful for that support. Both of us had issues 'explored, explained and resolved.' We can see a way forward; a positive one where there is hope for a better and much more healthy future. We are thankful for the fact that we live in a country that allows this; one in which its citizens see such an outcome as not just a privilege for the few, but all so a right for all.' As for us---its is our responsibility to take a positive view---and get on with life.
