Posted by Hello

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 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

Love the picture! Thanks for the quote from Swindoll. There are so many things in my live, of which I have no control, and I need to be reminded to check my attitude.
