DSC_0023“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 our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. 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. (Took me a long time to come to this realization LOL)

One Last Thought:::

Attitude Adjustment

Mary received a parrot as a gift.


The parrot was fully grown with a very bad attitude and worse vocabulary. Every other word was profanity; those that weren't profanity were, to say the least, rude. Mary tried to change the bird's attitude by constantly saying polite words and playing soft music, anything she could think of. Nothing worked. She yelled at the bird and the bird got worse. She shook the bird and the bird became even madder and ruder. Finally, in a moment of desperation, Mary put the parrot in the freezer to get a minute of peace. For a few moments she heard the bird swearing, squawking, kicking and screaming. Then, suddenly, there was absolute quiet. Mary was frightened that she might have actually hurt the bird and quickly opened the freezer door. The parrot calmly stepped out onto Mary's extended arm. Perfectly calm, the parrot said, "I am very sorry that I offended you with my language and my actions and I ask your forgiveness. I will endeavor to correct my behavior, and I am sure it will never happen again." Mary was astounded at the changes in the bird's attitude and was about to ask what had changed him, when the parrot continued, "May I ask what the chicken did?"

That attitude adjustment story made me laugh out loud. And honest I can't tell a joke at all, but I told this to Bill (not reading it) and he laughed too. Thanks for that!

So the first part of the post was really good advice. A good reminder. Stay warm, keep your attitude adjusted!

I am getting tired of the snow and ice; however, it does make for great pictures.
