Attitude is all about CHOICE!









Attitude of Gratitude

Think about all that you have, and be thankful. Start a gratitude journal, and take a few moments each day to write down your thoughts. Find something to be grateful for, “such as your friends, family, and some aspect of your health.”

One of the things I have tried very hard to eliminate from my life is negativity. Negativity is nothing but toxic energy. This toxic energy can come in the form of toxic people, or energy whose only job is to suck and drain the life out of you; or toxic situations. When I find myself in one of these toxic environments, be it with people or circumstances, if I cannot turn the situation around, then I merely excuse myself and remove myself.

What you really want is to be surrounded by people you trust and treasure and people that cherish you.

Remember that smiles are contagious. A good spirit encourages everyone around you. Thinking positively gives you a sense of purpose and adds meaning to your life.

Live from the perspective that the universe is conspiring, right now, to bring you exactly what you want and need. Expect a miracle every day. Feel the joy of living in that knowledge or belief, and often do things or take actions to maintain that state of being for yourself.

Attitude is certainly about choice! Changing one's attitude can change one's life drastically and yet many people do not take that into consideration. They could go around blaming the governments, the systems, the situations, other people and everything else ... except themselves. It is a challenge to help people understand that everything in life eventually equates to one's attitude.

I think this idea about a gratitude journal is a fantastic idea. I do not keep a gratitude journal. What I do is that I will recite to myself all the things I am grateful for when negativity is taking over me or when I am hitting some challenges in life. Doing that gets me to the positive side and to look at things differently.

Hello BK...Eloquently said!

This is absolutely true. Situations are a reality, yes. They do show up. It is your ATTITUDE that makes a situation positive or negative.Try accepting the moment as it is. When someone challenges your mental position, opinion or viewpoint, don't feel attached personally- you become defensive.

It’s time for you to become conscious of how you think and feel- no one else on earth has this power unless you give it away.

“Your state of consciousness creates the state of your result.”

Thanks for sharing your brilliant insight! I appreciate it!

Cheers!
Ps. LOVE my gratitude journal. Every night I devote time to write down 5 things I am grateful for that day...like you said BK it gives me insight as well a fresh perspective!

UNDERSTANDING OUR OWN CONNECTION

It is our right and our obligation to ourselves, and those in our world, to be certain we are engaging in our life with integrity, with accurate information and with full awareness about ourselves.
