Raising four kids - with ages right in a row (we are a step-family) - 29, 29, 28, 27 ages now) - I used to tell them that attitude is everything - whether we are happy or sad, mad or glad - we have an attitude. I love this from mountainwings and wanted to share it. So enjoy!


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 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 or a home.

The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day 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 that we can do is to play on the one string we
have and that is our attitude.

I'm convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I
react to it.

And so it is with you.

    Amen. I need to print this and put it EVERYWHERE! I know this is true but tend to forget it when it really counts.
