The one asset in life that is yours – and yours alone! – is your attitude. No one can take it from you and the way that you choose to react to situations and respond to others is totally and completely up to you! Good times or bad times; times when your heart is about to burst with joy and times when you have no clue how your next need will be met, the way in which you confront the situations and people in your path are all up to you.
God gave us all free choice. The last freedom any of us will have on this earth is our attitude. Use it wisely. Choose to find the silver lining in all situations. Make lemonade out of the lemons life dumps in your lap. Choose happiness. It is a choice and do not kid yourself into thinking any differently; your attitude is a choice and it is yours alone to make!
If I’ve learned anything in my days upon this planet, it is that no one else can make you happy. People cannot do it. Material things cannot do it. Lord knows chemical substances cannot do it. Happiness comes from within; it is a choice that you must make.
Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but how we react to what happens, not by what life brings us but the attitude we bring to life. –Wade Boggs
Regardless of the station in life where we find ourselves at this moment, choose an attitude of happiness and gratitude. Find the good – however menial it might feel at the moment – and cling to it. Let your positive attitude be your compass to guide you to the good that awaits you in your days ahead.
It is the master key to an outrageously wonderful life.
