Half Full Friday! August 6th

“Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” - Abraham Lincoln
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 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:

“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” - Buddha

This is what I'm Happy for this week:
  • I am happy that I had a very, very productive week!
  • I am happy that my house looks Awesome!
  • I am very happy that I have a House Showing today! :-)
  • I am happy that my son made it to Houston safely! 
  • I am very happy my sons value education! :-)
  • I am happy for the beautiful walking weather!
  • I am happy for just plain 'Feeling Good'!
“Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson!

  1. I always look forward to your Friday posts! I'm happy in general!


  2. smiles. feeling good is a good thing...and it looks like you have quite a few others to be thankful for...have a great weekend!

  3. Did you know that studies have proven:
    if a person is depressed, she should practice smiling, showing her teeth in a big grin. Even if she doesn't feel like it, it makes her feel better, the more she practices. I think your "Half Full" philosophy works the same way.

    "The world is so full of a number of things,
    I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings."
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
