"It will be if that's what you choose - it's all up to you. It's your choice."
If you go into the day expecting it to be bad... it probably will be because you've already settled your attitude in the negative. There may, if fact, be some bad things that transpire. But, just because life hands you something bad doesn't mean you have to take it. Don't let your mind wander around in the negative. That's depressing!
I've found that if I start off my day with my mind in the right place, no matter what happens, I can bring my mind back to center and keep a good attitude. So what's center, you may ask? Here's center for me....
"Whatsover things are true, whatsover things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things, are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."
So, practically speaking, I attempt to apply these virtues to my thoughts and think on these things instead of the sour grapes the day may try to hand me. So, I'm going to think on things that are
- lovely and
- a good report
in all things.
Where you put your mind really matters. It can determine not only your attitude during the day.... it can determine the attitude of others.
Your attitude has an air about it, an aroma, if you will. When you walk into a room.... people smell the fragrance of your mind. So... it's in your best interest if, before you walk out the door this morning, you ask yourself this question, "Now, where did I put my mind?" And put it on good things. It will not only help you have a better day, those with whom you come in contact will also appreciate it!
