Attitude Has A Large Impact On One's Life

Greetings to all of you wonderful citizens of Washington City. May I offer this thought to begin my newsletter from the author, educator, and pastor, Charles Swindoll who said: 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, gift or skill. It will make or break a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change the past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing that we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes. As we all face challenges, discouragement, setbacks, and seemingly impossible obstacles in our lives, how we react to those is a measure of our strength, courage and ingenuity.Imagine what could happen in your homes, families, neighborhoods, workplaces and communities if our attitudes remained positive, allowing us to think more highly of each other. Would you be more willing to help others without being compelled to? Absolutely! Would your circle of influence be expanded? Guaranteed! Would you be more patient, kind, giving and forgiving? Of course you would. As we continue forward in this adventure called LIFE; let us remember to find those ways to make a difference in our own lives and in the lives of others. Hope you have a fantastic month...
