“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, 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 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 certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play the one string we have, and that is our attitude… I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes”

    An Attitude of Gratitude…..It’s all about perception. The best way to make life durable is to find that silver lining.
    I am forever/daily re learning that the only person I can change is myself and the way that I view everything!!!
    Here’s looking a you kid! I love my Daddy……

    Thanks Ellen, I love my no longer little girl a bunch. It makes me very proud to see that you now understand about perception. The day you screamed at your Mom and I that we were avoiding reality and ‘looking at the world through rose colored glasses’ is indelibly etched into my memory. I think perhaps that explosion was the beginning of your travel on the road of wisdom.

    Thank you for posting your thoughts, and keep it up.
