Half Full Friday! July 2nd

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 fourth time joining Half Full Friday and here is what I'm Happy for this week:
  • I am happy for my son helping me with the house! 
  • I am happy that I got to take another class this week! 
  • I am happy that I ignored a negative situation. 
  • I am happy and proud of my son for taking charge of a situation!
  • I am happy that I have a 3 day weekend & plans! :-)
"Happiness is a conscious choice, not an automatic response." - Mildred Barthel

Have a Great & Safe weekend, Everyone!
Love & Hugs Always my Friends,
