It is your fault
“The longer I love, 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.”
― Charles R. Swindoll
Having a bad day, too bad, it’s your fault. If things are not going your way, understand things will always not go your way. If they did, life would be boring and challenge free. Embrace the small and large challenges for they allow you to enjoy the successes.
Yesterday the country voted to retain President Barrack Obama. Half the country is elated and half the country is upset. There were thousands of other races that were decided as well with various parties and candidates winning and losing. If you were a fan of the current president, celebrate. If you were not, focus on the other races that went your way.
In Colorado and Washington they voted to legalize marijuana. My Dead Head friends are already organizing trips to these states to celebrate, but if they chose to focus on the other 48 states that still outlaw this weed, there would be little cause for celebration.
Did I mention that you are going to die? Oh my, forgot about this little fact. Think about it, know your time is limited and enjoy, embrace, and laugh every minute of every day. We just lost 2 teenagers at our local school. At 2:30 am one Saturday night, they decided it was a great idea to race a train. They lost and now there are several family members suffering for this loss. Theses same family members at one time or another were so angry at these same kids for various indiscretions that if asked, at the time of their anger, they would have disowned their own children. Talk to these parents now and see if those angry feelings, attitudes, and feelings of hate were warranted. I think we might find that no matter what these children did, nothing should cause any emotion, but love and understanding. We were all kids once; I’m not sure how I didn’t lose a few of those races.
You have a choice; bitch, moan, and complain about your situation or embrace the good. Bad things will happen and yes, it’s not fun, but looks past the moment and look down the road. There is a circus coming to town and there will always be clowns to make you smile. If you are not having a great day, it’s your fault.
