Good News Monday

by: Charles Swindoll

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 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 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 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.

Happy Monday, Beautifuls!

I stumbled upon this quote in one of our office kitchens last week. When I read it, I thought, "Wow. How true this is." And then reflected on my own attitude as of late, and recognized some adjustments I needed to make with it. What about you?...

What attitude have you started this day/week in. I know that at times it can be some work to have a positive outlook. But I do believe that our attitude/viewpoint/perspective has a direct effect on our daily living and even our health.

Peace and blessings,
