I received this via an email forward and felt the need to post it here. It sure made me stop whining and complaining.
There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head. "Well," she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today." So she did and she had a wonderful day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head. "Hmmm," she said, "I think I'll part my hair down the middle today."
So she did and she had a grand day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. "Well," she said, "today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail."
So she did, and she had a fun, fun day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head. "YAY!" she exclaimed, "I don't have to fix my hair today!"
Attitude is everything. Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly. Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.
Although this sums what I try to live, I often get derail on my journey. You have NO idea how timely this was for me today! Have a good Sunday....
Hi Linda...Love your new photo, under the tree. Nice thought in today's post and true, too.
I'm back from my 9 days away, to my son's wedding. Nice to be home. Susan
I agree, attitude is everything. Thanks for the reminder. It's so easy to lose sight of that.
Linda, this is one of those "timeless" reminders.
Yes, attitude is everything. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks for sharing that, nice reminder and nice post.
Attitude is HUGE! sandie
Just saw that last line on a sign in a gift shop the other day. I loved it so much, I ran home and added it to the list. What a gem!
Hi Linda - Good post. Reminds me of my brother who makes up his mind, every day, to have a good day. His favorite saying is, "You never know what the next tide will bring!" And he always has the expectation that whatever comes in on that tide will be worthwhile. Thanks for the reminder.
