Attitude – It Changes Everything

by She Flies With Her Own Wings

Life is full of ups and downs; and as much as we want to, we just can’t control everything.  Sometimes things happen with no warning, and sometimes life just simply isn’t fair.  It’s like when one thing goes wrong, everything goes wrong…you know what they say, ‘when it rains it pours’.  It’s as if all the things that could go wrong are lined up like dominos and when one gets knocked over, they all start to fall.  Like the world is against you, and all you can do is watch as it begins to unravel.

As I said, we don’t have control over everything, sometimes bad things happen to us; but what we can control is how we let it affect us.    We get to choose how our attitude is, and it’s not going to be easy.  It might be easy to let the circumstances turn you into a bitter and cynical person, I’m guilty of it – but being negative isn’t going to make your situation any better, if anything it’ll just prolong the frustration.  We wake up every morning with a new chance to put a smile on our face, to hope that today will be the day things get better.  And if they don’t necessarily get better, I can promise you that smiling will make you feel a bit better and make your day that much brighter.  It’s not necessarily time that heals things, it’s our attitude, and it’s not going to happen over night.  If we continue to have a negative attitude time isn’t going to change that, but by focusing on the positives and deciding that you are going to make the most of your day…that’s when things get better.

It’s not a matter of comparing your life to those less fortunate in order to try to make yourself feel better, it’s a matter of never giving up and waking up each morning and saying ‘bring it on world, I’m ready for you’ with a smile on your face.
