Attitude

My husband has a wonderful  attitude. He is one of those 1/2 full cup kind of guys.  One day, he brought home this message from a training class he attended. Frankly, I think he shared it with me, because I struggle with being one of those 1/2 empty cup kind of gals. Here the quote: 

” The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.  Attitude, to me, is more than facts.  It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.  It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.  It will make or break a company…a church…a home.  The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.  We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.  We cannot change the inevitable.  The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.  I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it…And so it is with you…we are in charge of our attitudes.” Charles Swindoll

    That is powerful. Attitude. YES our attitude makes a great difference in our day and in others also. When I worked at the pharmacy it was very clear some customers were dealing with incredibly bad stuff and yet their attitude was of praise and thanksgiving. Others were bitter and hard hearted and I often thought ‘boy you are a joy to be around’. We have a choice everyday. Hope we make a good one.
    take care * love the picture it is so nice to ‘see’ who I am writing to :o)
