You Can Change Your World By Changing Your Attitude
Seems like many of us live our lives in anticipation of getting from where we are, to where we'd rather be. We never seem to appreciate where we are. We're waiting for the weekend. We're just trying to get through today, because tomorrow our vacation starts. We waste more time looking at the clock wishing we weren't where we are.
Every day is a gift. There's no promises about tomorrow--it even says that in the Bible. What if we spent every day living our life as fully as we do during our weekends, our vacations, and those things on our calendar we just can't wait to arrive?
What if we spent that down time between the fun things learning to become a better person? Focusing on how we could make our jobs more fulfilling so we don't dread it so much? Getting to know the people around us better?
They say time flies when you're having fun. When you decide in advance that some things just can't be enjoyable, they won't be. When you get up in the morning with the attitude you'd rather just stay in bed, you're in for a long day. When you think you're going to have a terrible time at your wife's family reunion--you will have a terrible time.
When you change your attitude, you'll change your world.
