Half Full Friday!!!

“He who has not learned to share his blessings with others has not found the true path to enduring happiness.  HAPPINESS comes from sharing one’s self and one’s blessings.  All riches are multiplied by the simple process of sharing them where they may serve others.” ~Anonymous
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 lies in the you of achievement and the thrill of creative effort."~Franklin Roosevelt

“In seeking Happiness for others, you find it for yourself.”~Anonymous

"True inner joy is self-created.
It does not depend on outer circumstances.
A river is flowing in and through you carrying the message of joy.
This divine joy is the sole purpose of life."
~Sri Chinmo
Have a beautiful and happy weekend, Everyone!!
Blessings and Hugs,
