Another Look at the Glass

Personal Outlook

In describing how one approaches the outlook of one’s life, the contrast between optimism and pessimism is the most powerful. These two philosophies embody two distinct ends of perspective toward how to approach problems, either as obstacles or challenges. While there is a degree of over-simplification in this process, as no person tends to be specifically one or the other, optimism vs. pessimism can tell a lot about an individual’s attitude toward life.

The reason such study has a unique degree of excitement is that it deals with events that are still yet to come, as opposed to events which have transpired hundreds of years past. In truth, these studies should also be greatly sobering, as they usher in the final outcome for all of mankind; an outcome beyond horror for countless many.

A Look Forward

A new year is one of those times when it is common for people to look forward in their lives and to make plans for the coming year.

The 'Non-Threatening' Jesus

Time of Year

This is the time of year when the largest number of people considers the person of Jesus Christ. While Easter is also a common time of such reflection, the Christmas season is still the time when many in the world, who normally give little thought to God or “religious” things, choose to return to the account of the birth of Jesus Christ.
