Attitude

I love my visiting teachers

It is amazing to me that every time they come the message they share applies perfectly to my life. I love it! It is truly proof that God can inspire and prompt people to serve as his angles. I have been thinking a lot about what goals I would like to have for this year. There are, of course, those goals related to health and talents, but I continue to come back to my attitude. I am not necessarily a negative person, but I feel that I need to improve my attitude regardless. I want to be that girl who is so cheery and makes everyone smile just by her presence. I love that girl.

The visiting teaching message for this month was on self reliance. I was amazed that out of all the topics relating to self reliance my visiting teachers decided to share their feelings on Attitude. They read a poem to me {and I begged them to let me keep it} It really struck home for me. I hope that over the years I can grow into that girl, the one who, by her presence, makes everyone's day a little better.

ATTITUDE

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 successes, 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... A home! The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change the inevitable, the only thing we can do is play on 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
