Attitude.... is possibly EVERYTHING!

One of my birthday cards reads, "It's not about age, it's about attitude....."

When all is said and done, one could argue that this IS true. This morning I found this quote waiting for me in my inbox.

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.

Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, 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% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes."

~ Chuck Swindoll

Wise words from a wise man.

So, let's just try to live our lives with the Attitude of gratitude and see what we can make of this world, this life, this day.
