It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which,
more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome.
When I was a teenager my dad used to say, "Deborah Lynn, adjust your attitude!" Boy, did I get tired of hearing that! Ha! Dad was right though, and as I grew up a bit I soon realized that my attitude was one thing in life that I did, indeed have control of. This way of thinking has served me well. As I look back on my life now, realizing that I have lived for 30-some years with a chronic illness, (and didn't really know it) I know that a positive attitude and my Faith in God has helped me to have a good quality of life and lots of JOY, despite physical pain, exhaustion, and confusion due to illness and to regular life stuff! Plus, my attitude right now- today is one of HOPE and FAITH in a full recovery and healing! Yay for a positive attitude!
If you have a dream, don’t just sit there.
Gather courage to believe that you can succeed
and leave no stone unturned to make it a reality.
If you are distressed by anything external,
the pain is not due to the thing itself,
but to your estimate of it;
and this you have the power
to revoke at any moment.
