Sometime life just doesn’t seem to cooperate. Ever have a bad day or a bad week?
I found through all my adversities in life that it simply does not pay for the BAD to take over your attitude.
Sometimes it is so hard to come up with something positive but usually a good sense of humor can foil the BAD!
Simply taking a minute to unwind and find the humor in the situation will help you decide you don’t need to own the problem by maintaining the attitude! You have the choice to react to the situation in a positive way.

Maintaining a Positive Attitude:
Learn to be Thankful for the things that you have now in life. Do not focus on what you don’t have!
Learn to give and do something good for others every day!
Get rid of your negative thoughts; tell yourself positive statements every day!
Find something positive about every situation!
Start your day with a smile always. Find a reason to smile every day!
Exert more effort into becoming more positive … and remember:

Life is 20% of what happens to you…
And 80% of how you choose to live life

Comments on: "New Year- New Attitude!" (5)

  1. Someone said to me once- don’t sweat the small stuff- it’s all small stuff!

    What a great way to start the New Year! We all need reminders to help keep a positive attitude, and I agree that humor is a great way to deal with the negatives that enter our life. There have been very few situations in my life that something funny isn’t hidden in there, somewhere. My mother used to say “into every life a little rain must fall, but we need rain to make a rainbow!”.

    Great way to start out the new year Jan. I like to be a cup half full type of person. However that isn’t always my reality. It sure is nice to get a reminder to stay possitive. I try and keep a gratitude jounal. Writing down one possitive thing that happens each day. Regardless of how bad I think my day may have been I can always find something wonderful.

    What a great message. I try and tell myself “In the scheme of life is this really that big of a deal”. And you know what? There are not truly that many things that are. Thanks for the reminder that we all have crummy things but finding the positive in a situation is certainly healthier and more beneficial then finding the bad.

    I agree, Jan. Our reactions to things that occur are just as significant as the occurrence its self.
