“Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst…a spark that creates extraordinary results.” ~ Wade Boggs
How we react and the attitude we bring create the atmosphere we choose to live in. It is a choice to remain positive when it feels like the entire world is against you. It can be a difficult choice. Oh, believe me I know! I live in the bad attitude realm a lot of the time.
But something I have noticed…when someone else has an upbeat, positive attitude…it rubs off on me and everyone else around. That is why it is SO important to surround yourself with people who have a positive outlook on life. If you hang around people who see the darkness in everything, your sunshine will start to fade too…so choose friends wisely.
React positively. Be aware of your attitude. And remember that things could always be worse! When your mind is in the right place…the sun always shines brighter on everyone.
