It’s a true statement. It’s a hard to swallow statement. The truth is that ultimately WE are in control of the day we’re having. It’s easy to say, well, if you just have an attitude adjustment, then things will get better, but we know it’s not THAT easy. Having a good attitude takes practice. LOTS of practice. I struggle with this, just like everyone else, but I also know this axiom and I take it to heart. When things are getting bad, and they will get bad, I know that it’s the attitude that I approach the problem with that ultimately defines how this will work out. I just read this amazing article about ATTITUDE by Grey Hoy (brought to my attention by my all-time favorite blogger, Tina Eisenberg of Swiss Miss) and he outlines the positive attributes of successful people, and almost every single one as to do with attitude.
