Half Full Friday!!

“It's been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.” ~L.M. Montgomery
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 most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters." ~Audrey Hepburn
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:
  • an Amazing week!  
  • a 3 day weekend!
  • the Zoo with my niece and nephew! 
  • A.F. Blue! ;-)
  • tickets to the game on Sunday!
  • awesome communication!
  • beautiful weather!!
  • new friendships! ;-)
“Happiness is not ready made.  It comes from your own actions.”~Dalai Lama XIV

“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.” ~Elizabeth GilbertEat, Pray, Love
Happy Easter, Everyone!!
Blessings and Hugs,
~ Coreen XO
