The Joy of a Good Attitude

I was at my Woman’s Networking group retreat this past weekend. We were discussing balance in our lives. It was a great exercise to examine what brings me joy and how much time I spend on these activities. There are things about my career that give me joy, but especially my family. So my focus was how to make the good things happen more and be proactive on the bad. But this quote was one great thing that I took away for the weekend and wanted to share it in my blog this week.

The picture is our art piece outside of the building (in our town 1% of construction cost has to go to public art, thankfully the dentist next door chipped in so we could have something larger than a bread box) in the Oro Valley office. It is dedicated to my Mother, Alma J. Nealon and I get to look and take joy from it every day. Hope you all have a great week and a new look to how we each take on each new day.
ATTITUDE
by: Charles Swindoll

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 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 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.

And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes.
