"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 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." Charles Swindoll

I love this quote by Charles Swindoll. It is so true. You can make a choice every morning when you start your day about what kind of attitude you will have. Everything will not always go the way you want it to go, but the way you choose to react to the things that happen is what shows your true character. " is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it."

Kathy - this is a great post! For years, that is what we told our children about their attitudes and reactions.

Frasy, that is funny -- I do have it posted up on my refrigerator. Sometimes I have to remember to practice what I preach!
Strawberry, I've tried so hard to teach this to my daughter also. That's the reason it's on my frig.
