Half Full & Aloha Friday question

"Life is about trusting your feelings and taking chances, losing and finding happiness, appreciating the memories, learning from the past, and filling your heart with happiness." ~unknown
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?
"A happy heart makes a cheerful face." ~Proverbs 15:13
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 for many things every day... especially this week:
  • For my beautiful nieces and her 4th birthday party with family last weekend! 
  • For discovering new interest and enjoying the world around me. 
  • For getting my car in the garage just in time before the storm and Hugh hail last night!
"Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it." ~Buddha
It's also "ALOHA FRIDAY" Everyone!!  If you want to join in the fun? Post your own question on your blog and leave your link at the Aloha Friday post at An Island Life. Then you can visit the other participants if you wish...It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends or see what people are thinking about this week and join in a conversation or two if you like.
"Wherever you go, go with all your Heart." ~Confucius 
My question:  What does 'go with all your Heart' mean to you?

My answer:  I believe it means you live your life with all the good feelings and thoughts that are (hopefully) in your heart.  Caring, giving, serving, helping, loving and encouraging others. 
"If you think with your head, a heart is just an organ that pumps blood.  But if you think with your heart, you know that a heart is the core of human existence.  A heart feels, emotes, and expresses.  With a heart you can perceive, understand, and judge.  Often a heart is accorded more importance than the brain."
"May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed." ~Psalm 20:4  
Have a 'heartfelt' weekend everyone!!
Hugs and Blessings to you All,

  4. Don't want hail dings on the car!
    "All your heart" means giving it your all and giving it your best.

  5. May he give you the desire of your heart
    and make all your plans succeed. Psalm 20:4

  6. Going with joy in your heart for all you do.

  7. Another great list, as always. What's this new interest you've discovered? I'd be interested in hearing about it. (Did ya see what I did there, lol?)

  8. Do what's most important to you. Don't do anything half way, give it your all.
    Here's Mine

  9. New interest and hail or is it A hail of an interest?

    Going with your heart is all the emotions you listed but doing it FROM the heart and not because of...

    Go with your heart :)

  10. I really have no idea. I've never heard of that saying. Guess I'm kinda out of it.

    Have a great rest of your Friday!

  11. For me it means to trust like it says Prov. 3:5 Love the verse you posted!

  12. To me that means . . . doing what you love to do.

  13. Coreen, thank you for sharing. Blessings.

  14. Hi Coreen,

    I am happy that you discovered new interest and you're enjoying your environment. Glad that you car is safe and be safe always.

    "Go with all your heart" for me, it means, that whatever we do we should to it with passion and be sure that whatever we do, this is something that we want and love.

    have a great weekend!


  15. My interpretation of that would be to go with the intention to do your best.

  16. I'm glad because life sometimes pushes me in a nice way to broaden my horizons.


Thank you for stopping by! I would LOVE your comments!
