Half Full Friday

Half Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eyegirl originally started in June 2009.  We believe that a lot of our happiness is determined by our attitude about the things that happen to us.  So by participating, I'm deciding to see the glass as half full instead of half empty; I'm choosing to concentrate on the positives instead of dwelling on the negatives.  The Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that.  They're a list of the things in my life that have brought me happiness over the past week.  I'm determined to find something good in every day.  Are you?
For the next week, I'd like to challenge each of you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day.  Be sure to link up here once you've posted your list.

~I'm happy because...
I had a wonderful Christmas with my family! 

I should have DSL before the end of the day!  No more dial-up internet, YAY!

While it snowed several times this week, it either didn't stick or it melted quickly!

I finally cleaned out the filters a few days ago and now my vacuum works so much better!  Imagine that!

I'm having brunch with a friend (possibly more, not sure who all is coming) later today!

Sadly, I still have no plans for this evening.  Hopefully that'll change after brunch today.  I really don't want to spend the evening alone with my chi's.  What are you doing to bring in the New Year?
I was thinking yesterday how this week has been disappointing for various reasons.  While I was busy feeling sorry for myself, it occurred to me that the whole year has been disappointing overall.  I had so many hopes and dreams this time last year.  But with 2011, I feel like I'm actually doing something to change my circumstances beyond just applying for tons of jobs and only getting interviewed for a tiny fraction of them.  I feel a lot better about the coming year.  I'm actually really looking forward to it!

Not having much luck with blogs the last two weeks.  The one I chose for Blog of the Week this week has been deleted!  WTF?!  I was going to post about a young girl's journey with cancer.  I discovered it a few months ago from a post on someone else's blog which linked to it.  I decided one day last week to read it from the beginning and got through quite a few posts.  I didn't follow it but bookmarked it instead and when I went back to it this last time, it was gone.  Very disappointing.  Unfortunately, the blog originator had apparently been receiving inappropriate comments for awhile and the decision was made to pull it.  It makes me sad because now I won't get to learn how her story ends - whether the treatment she receives will bring her into remission once and for all.  I hope she decides to blog again one day because I don't want to always wonder. 

It also makes me angry because I don't understand why anyone would leave her inappropriate comments.  She was sharing her story only.  She never once, that I ever read, asked for donations or seemed to hope to gain anything from blogging.  The only thing she ever asked for were prayers. 

I just found another blog that looks interesting so I may use that for next week's Blog of the Week

10 showed me some love:

Happy Friday! And Happy New Year!

The hubby & I are staying in tonight. I'm on-call for my job (though I likely won't get any calls at all) and Derek is sore and tired because he had to do actual manual labour at work this past week (Men! So whiney!).

Hope you have fun tonight! xo

You still had dial up & visit my very slowwwww... loading blog? Wow.. I knew you were a good friend... now I know you are also very Patient!!! :-) So happy you are getting DSL & esp. happy that you had a good Christmas!!

I got invited to the same party as the last 3 years. Very nice man with a hugh 4 car garage complete with pool table and other game tables, etc. I took my son with 2 years ago and he had a blast!! But there's usually way too much drinking by the adults that attend and it makes me nervous. I'd rather stay home with Brandon and watch movies than be somewhere I'm not totally comfortible. I sure home you made some plans and have an Awesome night, Sprinkles! You're younger... :-)

This year we both learned and grew so much. Realizing what we needed to do for ourselves to fullfill our DREAMS!!!

Happy New Year my friend! 2011 is going to be both of Our year's!! I just know it!

Love and Many Blessings,

Happy New Year dearest friend!!! May 2011 be a very happy and prosperous one for you.;)
I am sorry you feel 2010 was a disappointment, I guess destiny throws our way the good with the bad. At times we have to endure the rain to see the rainbow...
I am hoping that this year will be a much fortunate one for you, just keep your hopes and dreams and an optimistic outlook - as positive thinking attract positive things.;)
