"The greatest happiness is to transform one's feelings into action." ~ Madame de StaelHalf 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?
"Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give."~Eleanor RooseveltFor the next week, we challenge you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day.
Last week I said I wasn't going to post personal things for a while. Well, most of you know that I threw that out the window this week with my 'vent' about some negative experiences recently. I was frustrated, angry and hurting... so I let out exactly what I was thinking and feeling. It was my release!"That is the key to happiness; to be to others what you'd like them to be to you." ~Anonymous
I was upset and not sure what to expect or do next. However you, my friends from 'all over' the world, came to my side with so much support, understanding, advice, comfort and love! All of you helped me not only through a stressful and hurtful time; but you also helped me Grow and once again Learn from an unexpected but enlightening experience. Thank you, I love you All!!!
This week I'm Happy and Thankful for:

"In seeking happiness for others, you find it for yourself." ~AnonymousMy question: What have you done for others, that you wish would be done for you?
My answer: Well... I've always fought for my sons when needed and I have always wanted a man to fight for me with that same passion. This week I was overwhelmed with the support of people 'fighting' for and supporting me! It was so uplifting and heart warming! !! I hope I do that for others. :-)
