Over the past couple of weeks I have been have, at times, found it hard to keep my temper and my mouth shut.  Sometimes I have had to take a very deep breath (or five).   Then, when I actually got round to thinking about things, I realised that I was letting other people dictate how I felt.   I have made the choice NOT to allow them to do this.  What they do and how they see things in their life does not have to effect me. 

I thought I would share this quote with you… there seems to be a few people out there who need to learn it! LOL

“Attitude

 The longer I live, the more I realise 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 every day 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 thing 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.   And so it is with you….We are in charge of our attitude.”
