Do you realize the huge impact your attitude has on your life?
Attitude is more important than looks, youth, wealth, success or power. You can have all these things and more but if you embrace a negative attitude you will find it very difficult to enjoy all that you have.
We all know people who seem to have everything, but they are never happy. They always have a long list of complaints and negative comments each time you speak to them.
There is only one thing that you have complete control over ... your attitude. You can wake up each day and treat it as if you have just been born. Nothing that happened before matters. It's a new day and you have another chance to be and do your best.
A positive attitude can be cultivated. If you believe you can or you believe you can't ... you are correct.
One person has been a shining example for me of what a difference attitude can make. Mr. Mickey is always positive, smiling and joking with everyone he meets. He has many reasons to not be that type of person but he makes a conscious choice each and every day of his life to get up, get well dressed and face the day with a positive attitude and extreme kindness.
He has inspired me to look on the bright side for all of the nine years he has been in my life. I can attest to the fact that it makes all the difference in my health (both mental and physical), in my confidence and in what I have accomplished.
We all have things that happen to us that break us and knock us down in life. Attitude determines what happens next.
Thank you for joining me and Mr. Mickey on this journey through midlife and beyond.
The second fifty years really are the best!
