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,
Than education, than money, than circumstances,
Than failures, 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 every day
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% how I react to it.
And so it is with you...
We are in charge of our Attitudes."

Have you ever noticed that the God Lord has made us
With two eyes, two ears, and one
He also placed another ear,
Just below the upper most part of our spirits.

And when they find
out they do,
They've been listening to the wrong god."

Life has it's ups and downs,
Somewhat like a roller coaster.
After a day on a roller coaster,
We all need to stop and relax for a while,
Think about what we just did,
And which ride to go on next.
Why don't you apply that to life?
At the end of a rough day,
Or even a smooth one,
Relax, gather your thoughts and emotions.
Then and only then, should you
Move on to the next ride."

But you feel the sweetness that it pours into everything."
