I always say "I'm a hopeless romantic who doesn't believe in love, a dreamer who fears failure and an optimist whose glass is half empty." HERE, I explained how I am a hopeless romantic who doesn't believe in love and I thought it was time to explain how I am an optimist whose glass is half empty.
I have always been very nervous when it comes to certain things that I want to go well: exams, sport competitions and musical performances. Although I'm a lot better at dealing with the stress now, I still force myself to believe that everything will go horrendously badly and I'll not do as well as I would like to. I'll get the worst butterflies mixed in with another feeling: a burning excitement. Despite this being an example showing more of me being a pessimist whose glass is half full (I don't know why, but in my head this makes more sense in this situation), I am always cancelling some form of excitement out with the negativity fear produces in me.
So, the picture? Today I saw these dying flowers on my window sill and thought I'd find the positive in them and take a little snap. They are a lot less colourful than they used to be but they are still sweet and lovely so I thought I'd attempt to try and improve my naturally pessimistic view and find something beautiful out of something that's not as bright as it once was.
Dewy Grass & Flowers,
The Girl in the Moonlight.
