"Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself - no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are - completely; the good and the bad - and make changes as YOU see fit - not because you think someone else wants you to be different.” ~ Stacey CharterHalf 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?
"Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared." ~Buddha quote
For the next week, we challenge you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day.
I'm Happy and Thankful for many things; especially this week:
- That my oldest son and his classmates arrived in the Dominican Republic safely! Praying they have wonderful learning experiences while helping people!
- For a very nice visit with some family last weekend!
- For the fourth annual World Autism Awareness Day on Saturday April 2, 2011!

"Positive anything is better than negative thinking." ~Elbert HubbardMy question: How do you deal with negative people?
My answer: I smile, point out something positive from the situation or change the subject to something light. Most people get the hint. :-)
