I’ve been blah for days now. I think it might be a case of jet lag but regardless, I’m miserable, moping around the house with a bad attitude and just, well, all around yucky.
Yesterday I posted this on faceboook…
“Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.” -Dyer
And it helped.
Today I came across this quote from Charles R. 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, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, 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 everyday 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% of how I react to it. And so it is with you. We are in charge of our attitudes.
It doesn’t always help to know my attitude is in my control, but the more I remind myself the easier it gets to break out of the funk.
And I’ve been in funkville for a couple of days now.
I am in charge of my attitude.
It’s my choice.
Time to consciously take action.
