I don't have much to post about today. Josey and I are getting ready to take off for a quick trip this weekend to Salt Lake City where I am attending a photography workshop on Saturday. I'm really excited for the workshop, and to just get away with my husband. Rory gets to stay with grandpa and grandma, which means maybe Josey and I can enjoy a meal out without cutting food up into tiny bits and blowing on it until our meals are cold! I'm going to miss her, though.
I have been thinking a lot lately about a quote that was given to me by a coach at the Athlete of the Year dinner when I was a senior in high school. Up until the time I finished college, I always had it hanging up where I could see it every day, but when I moved in with Josey after we got married I didn't see the need to hang it up again since I had it memorized. I think I'm going to dig it out, though, and hang it up again because even though I can easily remember the words, seeing it is a good reminder of the way I should approach each and every day.
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than fact. Its 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 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. –Author unknown
