“Attitude is a choice.

Happiness is a choice.

Optimism is a choice.

Kindness is a choice.

Giving is a choice.

Respect is a choice.

Whatever choice you make makes you.

Choose wisely.”

“Seek out that particular mental attitude which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says “this is the real me”, and when you have found that attitude, follow it.”       William James

I think it’s important and I think it’s true that our life experience is going to be about our attitude, our thoughts, our beliefs, our speech and our actions. We can transform our life experience simply by changing our language. – Jason Mraz –

“There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.” -W. Clement Stone

Creating Good From a Bad Situation

When Bob lost his job a year and a half ago with little hope of there being another one we were confused and upset.  Due to the way things happened we were also angry.

Our future plans had been contingent on Bob working 7 more years.  What were we going to do?  How were we going to survive?  We had no option but to trust God, but it felt like our lives were falling apart.

It took awhile to realize we were going to be okay. We finally realized the employer actually did us a favor and we had the freedom to leave the big, violent city behind.  We also realized some of the things we thought were so important really weren’t.

So here we are, not far from where I grew up and was so anxious to leave a long time ago. I am glad to be here. The people are good folk, they talk like I do and are friendly.  Bob loves being close to the lake and watching wildlife from our dining room window.  The stress of the city behind us we live a simple life in a quiet, peaceful place.

I have finally come home.  Thank you God!

Healthy Living A to Z: A is for Attitude

Our attitude influences our physical, mental and spiritual health. Underestimating the power of attitude can be dangerous.  Choosing the positive requires attention and effort. Even those who seem naturally happy work at staying positive.  These are two tools to help us move to a more positive state of being:

Surround yourself with positive people.  Thoughts are highly contagious. Hang out with negative people and you will become negative. Find a group of positive people and you will find staying positive much easier. Watch the online communities you join as well.

Be aware of your thoughts.  Affirmations are a useful tool for changing our way of thinking. These are “I am,” or “I can” statements which recognize the hidden powers of the subconscious mind.

Attitude is the foundation of everything we will do during this lifetime.  It is important to make that foundation a good, positive one.
