Attitude...The Lock or The Key?
Attitude is nothing new that we have talked about on this blog. However it is something so vitally important to the well being of your life that it bears reminding of on a regular basis. And because you and only you choose your attitude it can mean the success of failure for you in life. It can mean loving and being grateful your job, life, house, car, spouse, etc, or it can mean being completely negative and regretful about all of those things. Which one would make you feel better? I am guessing you said loving and grateful.
Look at things in your life now and assess your attitude towards everything. Is it good? bad? indifferent? Then as you look at those things, you will probably notice that the things you view negatively make you feel the worst and the things you view positively makes you feel the best. So the most logical choice would be to use that key of a positive attitude to unlock happiness with all things in your life.
If something is making you feel unhappy and causing a negative attitude then you are the only person who can figure out a solution for it. That may mean you need to stop and look at it from a different angle, find things about it to be grateful for, or even let it go/forgive it so that is a not a burden on your life. Attitude is a state of being that you decide. No one else can give you attitude or cause you to have a bad attitude, only YOU can do that. Nothing that anyone else does causes you to do anything that you do not want to do. You make that choice, you make that decision. You choose how you live YOUR life. Next time you notice a bad attitude creeping up on you, turn that lock into a key to open the door to happiness and a better life.
