"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, 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 percent what happens to me
and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you... we
are in charge of our attitudes."

Couldn't agree more! Just wish I could get mine sorted! ;D
I had this very same realisation when I was in my 20s, working on a very monotonous production line in a factory - plenty of time to 'meditate', and I still remember clear as day this realisation that my attitude was the only thing I could change...
Great post, Angel x Thank You x

Much Love,

This is so true! We all have different difficult experiences each day, but we choose how we let them affect us! :) xoox
