If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
If you're fed up with a certain situation in your life, January 7th. is for you it’s I'm Not Going to Take it Anymore Day. A day to fight back and take control of all events that happen in ones life. Upset at the traffic, or the never ending frigid weather, or your cable TV's customer service, or that you didn't get what you wanted for Christmas? Well this is the holiday that encourages you to do something about it.
Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
A cloudy day is no match for a sunny disposition
William Arthur Ward
I’ve found that there really is little that I can control in my life. But one thing I can control is my attitude. I can choose whether or not I want to be happy or sad, or glad or mad. Our frigid weather has returned and yes, we do have lots more snow. I could be upset, but no sense in wasting a good day over it. I’m glad instead.
I’m glad I have a warm home and plenty of warm clothing too. I’m glad and so thankful that my furnace works. I’m glad and not sad because thanks to DDIL#6, I could sip on some hot chicken soup this past week that warmed up my tummy.
Remember that every day may not be good, but there is something good to be found in every day.
I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Fear less, hope more; eat less, chew more; whine less, breathe more; talk less, say more; hate less, love more; and all good things are yours.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for this past year and have now reached my 1000 gifts. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
1292. for hot soup, it tastes so good and warms you up too.
1293. for my coffee maker, which continues to make one good cup of coffee after another
1294. for a slight break in the weather over the past weekend so I could get the outside Christmas decorations down.
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
