I will give you a little back ground on myself. I am a caregiver to my husband who has Dementia. It is a terrible disease of which I am learning just how ugly it can be. Not because of my husband because he is still in the early stages but just by trying to read and learn about it as I go along.
I am not having a lot of difficult days. Most days are very nice but I know I can choose my attitude. I can wake up thinking, " Oh, what will I face today " with a very apprehensive attitude before the day begins. OR I can wake up and say " I will meet all challenges today" with a smile. I have that choice.
Now, some days , I do "fake it til I make it". But isn`t that what controls our attitude? It is a personal decision to make a negative situation into a positive situation.
I don`t have friends that are negative. I learned years ago, that this type of friend brings clouds around me. I don`t need that. I want to feel uplifted.
I try to be someone who is upbeat and positive. I want someone to feel that when they are around me ...they are happy to be around me and want to be around me. I want them to have a good memory of when we visited.
Have you ever been around someone who complains about everything? It isn`t pleasant , is it? Think about that the next time you want to complain .
My new mantra is "Today, I choose happiness."....each and every day.
for stopping by.
to you for a happy day
