Half Full Friday! July 23rd

"Pleasure is the only thing to live for. Nothing ages like happiness." - Oscar Wilde
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.

We are determined to find the something good in every day.  Are you?
"Happiness is a conscious choice, not an automatic response." - Mildred Barthel
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 blogger's 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 what I'm Happy for this week:
  • I am happy for the time I get to spend with my sons, in person and on the phone!
  • I am happy that I got to meet with my 40 Assets Champions group this week.
  • I am happy that I came up with some ideas and plan of actions for the 40 Assets group!
  • I am happy I got to tell several people about '8 to Great' this week.
  • I am happy I found a new church to visit and possibly join. :-)
  • I am happy that I got even more emails from Asperger parents this week. :-)
  • I am happy that my son is empowering himself more and more each week!
