"Think big thoughts but relish small pleasures." ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr., Life's Little Instruction BookHalf Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eye Girl originally started in June 2009.We believe that a lot of our happiness is determined by our attitude about the things that happen to us. So by participating, we are deciding to see the glass as half full, instead of half empty. We are choosing to concentrate on the positives, instead of dwelling on the negatives. Our Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that. They are a list of the things in our life that have brought us happiness over the past week. We are determined to find the something good in every day. Are you?
"If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it." ~ Mary EngelbreitFor the next week, we challenge you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day. On Friday, write your own Half Full Friday post and return to Life As Eye See It to link your post and to see what other bloggers found happiness in during the past week.
Don't forget to grab a Half Full Friday Banner or Button for your blog post if you are going to join in:
This is what I'm Happy for this week:
- I am happy & appreciative of good friends that encouraged me this week to 'Follow my Heart'!
- I am happy for no more 'mysterious' phone calls this week on the house phone. Wish I hadn't canceled the caller ID in April...... :-/
- I am happy to be there for the people I care about! :-)
- I am happy I'm getting into better shape and feel good!

My question: What 'un-answered prayers' are you grateful for?
My answer: I'm grateful for some jobs and relationships that I 'thought' I wanted at different times in my life. Now with the reality and understanding of who I am and what really makes me happy, I now know what the lessons were and what I want in my life. I am very thankful for those 'un-answered prayers' and the opportunities I have today. :-)
