Half Full and Aloha Friday Question

“Happiness always looks small while you hold it in your hands, but let it go, and you learn at once how big and precious it is.” ~Maxim Gorky
Half 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?
“A 'fresh start' attitude can bring inspiration, personal growth, love and happiness into your life." ~Me

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 every day... especially this week:
  • For more vacation days and starting to Move this week! :-)
  • For the buyer fixing things on the house so we can close soon!!  
  • For ALL the birthday wishes last week & talking to all 3 of my sons!  I was very touched..  Thank you everyone!!   
"You may have a fresh start any moment you choose." ~ Mary Pickford
It's also "ALOHA FRIDAY" Everyone!!  If you want to join in the fun? Post your own question on your blog and leave your link at the Aloha Friday post at An Island Life. Then you can visit the other participants if you wish...It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends or see what people are thinking about this week and join in a conversation or two if you like.
I watch out my window as the planes take off into space. Oh, that I could fly away and start fresh. But I must realize that fresh starts also come in the pretty wrapped gift called 'tomorrow.' ~ unknown
My question:  How do you get a fresh start?

My answer:  I believe it is from letting go of guilt and/or resentment, giving us a new attitude and even renewed enthusiasm about life. Although a positive atmosphere can help too. ;-)   
“I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning...” ~ Joseph Priestley
I will be back as soon as I'm completely moved.
Have a Wonderful weekend, everyone!!
Hugs and Much Love to you All,
~ Coreen XO

  1. I agree making a fresh start (with yourself)
    is letting go any hurt or angry resentment against you. This is shown in my latest poem "I Understand".
    Great post to read as always Coreen.

  5. Happy move...as far as thankful...I am thankful that my highschoolboy now collegeman2 made it through graduation and was able to hold himself together long enough to receive his diploma. He broke down crying because he realized how he was leaving everyone behind. Now someone tell me how autistics have no emotional attachments...

  7. I don't remember if I wished you a Happy Birthday last week or not so if I didn't -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COREEN!

    More vacation days is always a good thing! I hope you enjoy them.

    That's great the buyer is willing to fix things. Usually they want you to fix them.

  9. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women

    http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

  10. I'm so excited for you, this move has been a long time coming. You know I want pictures of the deer. :)

    Fresh start = throw away the directions + let go of your heart + open your eyes and your arms.

    PS hope you knew I'd make it sooner than later!
