Half Full & Aloha Friday Question!

"Make one person happy each day and in forty years you will have made 14,600 human beings happy for a little time at least."
- Charles Wiley
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?
"Cultivate caring and generosity. Happiness is the natural state of a loving heart."
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 every day... especially this week for:
  • For an extremely productive week at work!
  • For not missing 'things' or dwelling on the past! 
  • For getting back into my writing & blogging routine.  I'm BACK!! :-) 
"The first recipe of happiness - avoid too lengthy meditations on the past." - Andre Maurois
Have a Wonderful weekend my friends!!
Blessings & Hugs,
