I read a quote years ago from Charles Swindoll about the importance of one’s attitude and in it he makes the observation that life is 10% of what happens to us and 90% of how we react to it.
Isn’t that enlightening? To think how I react to the circumstances in my life is more important than the circumstance itself? Maybe you’ve never thought of approaching life in this way.
Do you get caught up in the drama of life, or worse, someone else’s life? Or do you realize that you have the ability to choose how you react to a situation?
When you stay in control of your attitude in any circumstance (good or bad), you determine the course of your life. You can choose what attitude you will use to start your day, each and every day!
That is a very powerful way to live, especially with our current situation, as we deal with uncertainty on so many different levels.
Think about it.
