Attitude! The A Word Again!

Saturday, February 02, 2013

I've been thinking about attitudes a lot the past few days, my own, and, those of other people I run into everyday. Having a very public job, I get a lot of Attitude.

Viewing SPARKGUY's video blog this morning, prompted me to recycle, (for the second time), my favorite verse about Attitude.


There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror,
and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.
'Well,' she said, 'I think I'll braid my hair today.'


So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror
and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.
'H-M-M,' she said, 'I think I'll part my hair down the middle today.'


So she did and she had a grand day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed
that she had only one hair on her head.
'Well,' she said, 'today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail.


So she did, and she had a fun, fun day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and
noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head.

'YAY!' she exclaimed.
'I don't have to fix my hair today!'


Attitude is everything.

Be kinder than necessary,
for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
Live simply,

Love generously,
Care deeply,
Speak kindly,
and count your blessings continually.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...
It's about learning to dance in the rain.

    This is so true.
I used to be very depressed and negative. Then I changed my attitude and WOW, I found out the sun shines from within no matter what the sky looks like. emoticon

  Great blog. You are right. Attitude can make or break a person. Attitude also plays an important part in how a bad situation progresses.
Thank you for sharing.
