"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 circumatances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skills. It will make or break a company a church a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we embrace for that day. We cannot change our past we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certan 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% of what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you we are in charge of our Attitudes."
I think this is such an amazing quote from Charles Swindoll. Attitude is a choice. I must admit that I don't always choose the right attitude. My response to certain situations are not always what they should be. Sometimes I choose the negative response rather than try to see the positive. I'm ashamed when I do that. For the most part I am a postive person. Even when I was going through my divorce ( and it was very difficult) I still kept thinking things will be okay. Look for the rainbow. God promised us rainbows. Sometimes people get so bogged down with negativity and finding fault with every little thing that they miss the rainbows. That is sad. I don't know about you, but I want to continue to keep my attitude in check and keep spotting those rainbows.
