Finally time for Half Full Friday! :-)

“There are some people that see the half full cup and get upset about where the other half of the cup went… With an attitude like that, they will never be happy.  I see a half full cup and I immediately fill up the rest with gratitude.” 
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?
“Happiness is not something ready made.  It comes from your own actions.” ~Dalai Lama XIV
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:
  • completing my training today! 
  • the best co-worker/partner! 
  • interactive meetings! 
  • fun experiences! 
  • dinner with friends!
  • new people in my life!
  • vacations days soon!
  • my trip to Chicago coming up! ;-)

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.  Life is a beauty, admire it.  Life is a dream, realize it.  Life is a challenge, meet it.  Life is a duty, complete it.  Life is a game, play it.   Life is a promise, fulfill it.  Life is sorrow, overcome it.  Life is a song, sing it.  Life is a struggle, accept it.   Life is a tragedy, confront it.  Life is an adventure, dare it.  Life is luck, make it.  Life is life, fight for it.” ~Mother Teresa
