Gabrielle had always been a glass half-empty kind of person. She was the type of person who saw the possibility of things going wrong, and more often than not, things did go wrong. Her friends and family had always tried to encourage her to see the positive side of things, but it was just too hard for her.
So when she was faced with the possibility of losing her job, she didn’t even try to see the silver lining. She just assumed the worst and started looking for a new job.
It was only when she was offered the possibility of a promotion that she started to see things differently. Her old job wasn’t so bad after all. In fact, it was pretty good. And with the possibility of a promotion, it could be even better.
Gabrielle decided to take the promotion and stay at her old job. And she was finally able to see the glass half full.
