Half Full & Aloha Friday Question!

“Perceive and rejoice that like is abundant, that beauty and goodness are amply available . . . that your happiness is in your hands.” ~Paul Hodges
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?
“The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise.  It is not that we seize the, but they seize us.” ~Ashley Montagu 
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:
  • A 3 days weekend & Plans!!  
  • A Great Time at the Rodeo! 
  • our 'Social Event' today @ work!
  • A party on Friday! 
  • beautiful weather again!
  • a congressional event Saturday!
  • joining a new organization to help children keep good teachers and get the education they deserve!  So excited!
"He who enjoys doing and enjoys what he has done, is happy." ~Susanne Clark 

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.
"Optimism is the one quality more associated with success and happiness than any other." ~Brian Tracy
 My question:  When are you most comfortable?
My answer:  When I'm being true to myself and standing up for what I believe in & doing what I feel is right!
"You've got to sing like you don't need the money.  You've got to love like you'll never get hurt.  You've got to dance like there's nobody watching.  You've got to come from the heart, if you want it to work." ~Susanne Clark
Have a wonderful weekend!!
Blessings and Hugs,
~ Coreen XO

  1. I like your answer.
    Wow, sounds like you have a busy weekend. I was just going write and mow the lawn. Trade you!

  2. I am with Alex... I like your answer and would have to agree with it!!

  3. That's a whole lotta happy for the week, especially the 3-day weekend with plans! ;)

    You must be in my head because your answer is exactly what I was thinking when I read your question. ;)

    Do You Do Phone?

  4. I feel most comfortable when I'm alone and still making the right choices. If not then I feel as if I'll eat myself. It's unpleasant.

    Or even being alone because I'm making the right choices.


  5. I love that you're getting involved in the election by going to different political things. I really ought to do that, especially since I'm minoring in Political Science

    I hope you enjoy your 3 day weekend.

    I'm most comfortable when I'm hangin' out at home in my jammies with the boys.

  6. I hope you enjoy your 3 day weekend! Sounds like you have tons of great stuff planned!


  7. When I'm in my own bed snuggling with the kids.


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