This month's habit - to Show a Positive Attitude. Our celebration color is "SUNNY" Yellow. Yellow is cheerful - the radiance of the day's new sun as it first rises into the morning sky. This is the month to work on our perspective about life and to share a positive attitude more often. Sometimes it is necessary to "fake it 'til we make it." When we do this, we often find that a "true" positive attitude will come about more quickly. Meanwhile, we've curtailed our negative ripples from spreading out to other family, friends, and co-workers. Enjoy the moments as they happen this month and especially the joy of Thanksgiving with friends and family. Make positive memories to savor again and again.
Over the years, from the internet and friends, I've collected many little short jokes or humorous children’s comments. This month, to "Show a Positive Attitude" I am sharing one each day with you. If you have some good positive attitude "one-liners" please write and share them with me.
"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 everyday 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."
