Half Full Friday! May 28, 2010

Half Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eye Girl originally started in June 2009.

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.

"Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day." ~ Author Unknown

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. On Friday, write your own Half Full Friday post and return to Life As Eye See It to link your post and to see what other bloggers found happiness in during the past week.

Don't forget to grab a Half Full Friday Banner or Button for your blog post if you are going to join in:

This is my second time joining Half Full Friday and here is what I'm Happy for this week:
  • I am happy that I got to talk to all 3 of my sons this week. 
  • I am happy that I got to talk to one of my favorite friends this week. 
  • I am happy that I finished reading 2 books for my upcoming classes, and loved them! 
  • I am happy that I like my new workout video, and it isn't too hard for me. :-) 
  • I am happy that I didn't have any stress this week!  (At least that I can remember...) 
  • I am happy that my youngest son got all A's and B's again this semester.
  • I am happy because I contiue to grow and heal every week that goes by.
  • I hope everyone has a Safe and Wonderful Holiday weekend!!
Love & Hugs Always my Friends,

  11. Hi, if you go to my blog, there is something for you, you will find it under the heading
    welcome to my world of awards.


  12. WOW! What a fantastic idea and post! It took me a while to understand exactly what you were driving at - a function of the place I am at the moment and my lack of goal directed positive focus. Did I ever need to stumble across this post today? Yes and YAY! With your permission, I'll start my own glass half full tradition! Thankyou, Hugh

  13. I'm all for the positive. I like this idea. I just may amble over there and see what's up. Thanks for sharing and leading me to a positive place. And you did have a blessed week. Isn't that awesome! God bless.

  14. Here it is Monday and I'm just finding out about this. Well I'll try to participate next friday if this is going to be an onging thing. Great idea!


  15. What a wonderful idea for a post! I love to look at life with optimism!

  16. I got the one with the dance belt, because the set of cheaper than the video alone on Not sure about the belt, but I love the video. Even if a 'move' is too fast for me, I just keep moving to the music anyway. Moving still means burning calories right?! :-)

  17. I must admit I do not always find good things in daily living. Something I will be working on. Thanks for the reminder.

  18. I agree that there are good things mixed in with the difficult/bad/sad things in life and ultimately what we give the most attention to determines how happy we are! I hope you had a great weekend!

  19. What a positive, happy post idea! I love it!
