“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.” ~ Ashley SmithHalf Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eye Girl originally started in June 2009. Now the it is hosted by Sprinkles at Wyldechylde. 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?
"I have learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances." ~Martha WashingtonFor the next week, we challenge you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day.

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.” ~Frederick KeonigMy question: What 'thing' do you appreciate... especially this time of year?
My answer: My little house that I can both afford to keep and afford to heat in the winter.
“I would rather be able to appreciate things I can not have.. than to have things I am not able to appreciate.” ~Elbert HubbardHave a wonderful weekend!
