"Everything is material for the seed of happiness, if you look into it with inquisitiveness and curiosity. The future is completely open, and we are writing it moment to moment. There always is the potential to create an environment of blame -- or one that is conducive to loving-kindness." ~Pema ChodronHalf 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?
"Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different." ~Katherine Mansfield

"So often time it happens, we all live our life in chains, and we never even know we have the key." ~The Eagles, "Already Gone"My question: What is your 'key' to happiness?
My answer: I would say my 'key' is: learning, growing and giving back to others. I believe that if you are honest with yourself... you can always see a 'lessen' that helps us grow after each life experience... good or bad. When we grow, we learn more understanding and compassion. Motivating us to give back to others.
