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 each 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! (This isn't a blog hop so please only link up if you've participated by posting your happy list on your own blog. Thanks!)
~I'm happy because...
Someone gave me a coupon for a free oil change!
I enjoyed the law school visit!
I got to talk to a friend this week that I don't get to talk with very often!
I had fun shopping with my mom! Actually, she did the shopping, while I just looked.
The new schedule came out for the upcoming semester and I don't have to work with a coworker I dislike!
I had someone new join me for last week's HFF!
In last Friday's HFF, I mentioned a crystal bowl that I may or may not have broken. After apologizing profusely, the woman it belonged to said that she didn't know if it was cracked already or not, and to not worry about it. I still can't help but wonder if I caused it or not, but I'm relieved she seemed fine with it. Whew!!!
All summer long, I've been wishing the time away and for school to hurry up and start. I almost feel like I wasted the summer and didn't appreciate it nearly as much as I should have. During a cuddle session with Shiver yesterday, I realized that I'm going to miss seeing him and Chico all day long, cuddling and playing with them whenever the mood strikes. I wish I could bring them with me. Luckily, I don't work any closing shifts this semester, so once school is out, I'm done for the day, with the exception of Friday.
Knowing our time together is limited, I've vowed to appreciate every moment!
