"If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like a flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace." ~Thich Nhat HanhHalf 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?
"You can never get to peace and inner security without first acknowledging and accepting what you really want and need. If you're forever wanting and longing for something or someone, without going after what your heart is pulling you toward, you'll stay in discord." ~ME
I'm Happy and Thankful for many things; especially this week:
- For the peace and happiness I feel just being myself...'ME'! :-)
- For having 2 of my sons home for Easter!!
- For doing what my 'heart' and 'intuition' tell me too... at least most of the time! ;-)
"Love the moment and the energy of that 'moment'... will spread beyond all boundaries into blissful, peaceful happiness." ~author unknown

"If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. This is the most basic kind of peace work." ~Thich Naht HanhMy question: What are your 'Tips' for a 'Peaceful' home?
My answer: First and most important - No fighting! I had enough of that for too many years. Maturity, Communication, Kindness and Love... go a long ways to having a peaceful and happy home.
Second - Plan ahead, de-clutter and stay organized... which bring less stress and more energy into a home. Of course the clutter and 'stuff' catch up to all of us every once in a while.. that's what Spring cleaning is for in my house. :-)
"He is happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home." ~Johann von GoetheHave a Very Happy Easter Weekend, Everyone!!
