Wanted to share something today that are comments from Charles Swindoll on the impact attitude on our lives.

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me is more important that facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, then circumstances, than failures, then 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 everyday 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 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes.

How true this is. I know by my attitude every morning what kind of day I'm going to have. Some days, I'll admit, I do need an attitude adjustment. But his comments are a great reminder to me that I have a choice how I will react and respond. So I will remind myself every morning to perform an "attitude check" before I leave the house!
