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 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.  And then come back here and tell me about it!
~I'm happy because...
I've had the past week off from work and school and have done literally absolutely nothing but sit around in my jammies!

The boys have been extra cuddly lately!

I passed all of my classes this semester, including math!

I had a lovely Christmas!  I hope yours was just as lovely!

After losing one follower, I gained two!  Welcome!

The snow has mostly melted!

My mom's beagle didn't get sick from stealing and eating a bunch of Hershey's kisses, wrapper and all!

Each semester seems to get more and more busy and stressful.  Things got VERY stressful right at the very end in one of my classes.  Fortunately, the girl who made things so difficult and uncomfortable has graduated now, so I won't have to worry about seeing her in other classes.  Hopefully she's misplaced my phone number and won't be calling again!

With the new year comes a new beginning.  I'm always so full of hope as each new year begins, just as I will be for 2014.  I've noticed that this past year, I've lost motivation at work and at school.  I'm hopeful this coming year will be different, and that I'll get back into the swing of things. 

Do you make resolutions?  A girl at work told me about this website where you go take a survey, then visit another website and learn about your personality.  She strongly suggested that I should check it out, and said that I would discover the things I needed to work on in my personality.  It kind of bugged me, the way she pushed me - especially after telling me that I'd find the things I needed to work on.  I later realized it bugged me so much because she's a *HORRIBLE* worker, so who is she to tell me I need to change?  But then it hit me that no one is perfect, and we could all be better, nicer, more selfless...

There are definitely things I've noticed about myself that I should change.  So that's my resolution for 2014 - to be a better person overall!  It won't happen overnight, and I know I can't be perfect.  But I'll figure as long as I'm trying, that's all that matters.

I'm glad you had a wonderful Christmas! :) I hope 2014 is a great year for you and your resolution is a good one which I think I'll adopt for myself

I am so glads the year ended so well!! and you passed all your classes (and I bet did FABulously too!), I'm sure your glad you have a break now! YEA!
Ma has learned NOT to make resolutions. She just says, try and do better than yesterday. That is her new motto. That is all we can hope for anyway.
Also, I think your right not to let that co worker get to you. Ma thinks that people who feel the need to criticize other people, are really just criticizing themselves. Brush it off and move on. Sometimes easier said than done, (Ma can get a little OCD over some stuff, so she's tryin' to do better in that regard! bol)
I hopes you have the bestest New Years EVER!!!
Kisses,
Ruby ♥
