"The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day
regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day."
-- Charles Swindoll
It is remarkable and also ultimately powerful that we have that choice every day, and even every hour, minute and moment. It is so easy to slip back into thinking that things happen to us and that many of those things might seem to come out of the blue, uninvited and unwanted, but I have found that the more I accept my own responsibility for what goes on in my life, the more interested I am in making more effective choices in attitude and thought.
It is also remarkable that if we are feeling south of neutral and take a moment to realize that we are letting our feeling have the control, it can turn on a dime toward joy in just moments in time. It only requires a better thought, a more comforting thought, and another and another, and then pretty soon, your back on track in confidence again. Isn't that a great feeling to have that power and control? I think it is flat out exciting!
It is also remarkable the we have such a power of influence over others by exercising certain choice in attitude and thought. Ever been on the commiseration bus? It's a bus going nowhere in particular, isn't it? Just a simple change in thought will remove us from that bus and instantly place us in the positive palace coach, where people are excited about destinations, adventures, ideas, and sharing encouragement.
It's More Up To Me Than I Previously Thought, And I Am Enjoying Very Much This New, Exciting Life.
