Confidence in nonsense is a requirement for the creative process

Half full really necessary?


I’ll put it out there that I am a die hard optimist. Even after multiple heart breaks, watching my country go through terror and having army friends posted at the border, I still believe in fairy tales and prince charming and world peace.

But does that mean that one should always stay positive? This constant badgering around to stay positive and focus on the good at all times is getting to me a little. Critical thinking is imperative in life. It helps us prepare for the worst when taking big risks. It causes us to teach our children to stay away from strangers. It ensures that we save money for a rainy day. We need the dark to make the light effective.

Some times, it’s okay to say the glass is half empty.
