Attitude is a choice. Think positive thoughts daily. Believe in yourself. Pat Summitt
I like this quote because it tells us how to have a good day. Of course, not all days are good or happy, but our attitude can influence how we react to those days that are less than the best.
With a positive outlook, problems are not overwhelming. All the troubles and woes are not unbearable burdens. There is courage given to help face whatever unpleasantness is in our way. When we believe in ourselves, we can overcome the trials and tribulations as they come, not letting them dig in and make themselves at home.
Our attitude is up to us. The choice is ours. Believe it or not.
Well, it is after ten am. I have read the paper, done the crossword puzzle, word jumble, find words within the word. Read my devotion and had some conversation with you know Who. Checked email and Facebook. Fed Teddy, that was the first thing I did, nothing else ever gets done until Teddy is fed, scratched, and in general fussed over. Now checking out all things WordPress. And still in my jammies.
My life is pretty routine. Not many surprises. And I like it that way. But I can manage changes, even the ones I don’t want or like. I may rant and whine occasionally–or as often as I feel it is needed to release toxins in my brain–but really I can roll with the punches.
Today my to-do list is in order–for all the good that will do. My day plotted and planned, sort of. Really, think about it. Who knows what today will bring? Nobody.
Today, I think that since yesterday isn’t anymore, tomorrow never is, and today is all I have, I will just take it as it happens and be happy.
