Attitude

"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, then education, than money, than
circumstances, then failures, then successes, then what others people think or say or do. It is more important than apperance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company...a church....... a HOME. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for the 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 this 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.."

I LOVE that quote! I also LOVE your hip, new blog background! Rock on! I totally beleive that our attitude is what makes or breaks it for us! I like to think I am one who thinks out of the box...and maybe that's why I can do foster care with a different perspective.

How are your training sessions going at the gym? Have you just loved it?
I will try to call you tomorrow!
