"No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change." ~- Barbara de AngelisHalf 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?
For the next week, we challenge you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day."Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it." ~-Groucho Marx
I'm Happy and Thankful for many things; especially this week:
- For all the progress on my house this week! I'm in a 'nesting' type cleaning mood laterly! A friend told me that means I'm making room in my life for something new! Awesome!
- For the ability to Accept, Appreciate and Love who I am!! ;-)

"If you can learn to love yourself and all the flaws, you can love other people so much better. And that makes you so happy." ~Kristin ChenowethMy question: Suppose you could go back in time and talk to yourself at the age of ten. What advice would you give yourself?
My answer: That you have to Love yourself First... before you can truly fall in Love with someone else! ;-)
Have a Wonderful Friday!"You must love yourself before you love another. By accepting yourself and fully being what you are, your simple presence can make others happy." ~Author Unknown
