365 Writing Prompt: The glass?

The glass half -full or half-empty?

An optimist sees the glass half-full, while the pessimist sees it as half empty. It is a person’s view on life. An optimist looks for good in any situation and finds a way to keep a positive attitude.

A pessimist finds fault in everything, such as why is my glass half empty while Richard has a  full glass.In this scenario an optimist will think, may be there was only enough water in the jug to fill half the glass, it isn’t done on purpose.

365 Writing Prompts: Back to the future

A service has been invented through which you can send messages to people in the future.To whom would you send something, and what would you write?

Realistically speaking I cannot think of sending messages to any one if I’m unable to understand what kind of service will be invented in the future.

It seems so unreal, but if I become an optimist and make myself believe there will be an invention and I will have the opportunity to send messages to people I have met along the way, I certainly would send a message to a young lady I met a while ago.

One winter morning I met a young girl in the shopping center, I don’t know who she was, I was worried how to climb the snow bank to get on the pavement, I almost wanted to turn around to find a spot where the path was clear. I was surprised when she offered to help me, “I will  help  you to get to the pavement”, she said.

To this day my mind wonders who she was, if I can miraculously locate her wherabouts, I will use this service to write a  note to her, the message will read, “thank you for helping me that morning,  you are the reason this world is  a wonderful place to live in.”
