the choice is yours

equine kiss

I once read on Susan Tuttle's blog that, at the end of morning announcements, her son's principal always says, "Make it a good day or not, the choice is yours." I love that. The power inherent in that idea. We have the choice to create a good day with our attitude.

May all your days be good ones.

Beautiful photo, Relyn, and sentiments to match. I can just feel the softness and gentleness of the horses. Wishing you a fabulous Sunday. xo

One of my favourite quotes by Charles Swindoll has been“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.”
This is something we must all remember. Thanks for reminding us.

I've always believed we have a huge power in looking at things the right way. And indeed, it can turn a poor day sunny. (Or at least, less poor!)

Jaime said...

Thank goodness we have a choice!
No matter what happens.
