Half Full & Aloha Friday Question!

“The happiness of a man in this life does not consist in the absence but in the mastery of his passions.” ~Alfred Lord Tennyson
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?
“Being passionate about something is the key to success. But using that passion to help others is the key to happiness.”  ~Unknown   
For the next week, we challenge you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day. This week I'm especially Happy and Thankful for:
  • Another a FAST & Productive week!  
  • Learning and Growing in my job! 
  • New and exciting experiences! 
  • a Positive work environment! 
  • great training and trainers!
  • interesting conversations.... ;-)
  • having Passion for what I do!
"Great passions, can elevate the soul to great happiness." ~Me

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.
"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle." ~Steve Jobs
 My question:  Do you have a passion for what you do?
My answer: I have passion for my new job; my writing; the 2 books I'm working on; and for the future I can see in my dreams!
“When you are passionate, you always have your destination in sight and you are not distracted by obstacles. Because you love what you are pursuing, things like rejection and setbacks will not hinder you in your pursuit. You believe that nothing can stop you!~Mike Krzyzewski
Have a wonderful weekend!!
Blessings and Hugs,
~ Coreen XO

  1. I do really enjoy what I do. I know many authors who want to quit their day jobs and write full time, but I enjoy what I do - and it's much less stressful than writing a book!

  2. Yay! Another awesome week! :)

    Absolutely I have a passion for what I do - I consider myself very lucky. :)

    Have a great weekend, Coreen! :)

    The Case of the Missing Phone

    Have a great week-end.

  4. Another excellent week! I'm so glad you're still enjoying your new job!
