Hello friends.  I hope this week finds you healthy and happy.  It has been quite a week with a beautiful full moon which for me gives me more energy but also leaves me with less sleep because of all the excitement the moon brings.

In one of my recent coaching sessions with one of my best clients, we were having a conversation about attitude.  Attitude.  It affects every area of our lives.  It’s very easy for us humans to complain about how our lives have turned out and blame it on a person, a political party, a family member or someone other than ourselves.  Unless we take complete responsibility with our lives, and that begins with our attitude, then life will happen not as we want it but how it unfolds.

So to help you with having the right attitude, I ran across some simple rules so that your attitude can determine your altitude.  Enjoy.

“I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight. I have responsibilities to fulfill today. I am important. My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can feel sad that I don’t have more money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.

Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can lament over all that my parents didn’t give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

Today I can complain because I have to go to school or eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.

Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel honored because the Lord has provided shelter for my mind, body and soul.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have!”

Until next time know this.  #LoveWins
