I am going to focus my thoughts around the following question this week. “How does our attitude reflect who we are?”
This is an interesting question that I am looking forward to exploring, and I am excited to see your thoughts and ideas as well.
Here is a great quote to start of the week.
“Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don’t waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.” ~ Og Mandino

Certainly a profound question that could lead to hours of discussion. I think that you could find moments for all of us when we weren’t at our best, but one snapshot in time does not a life make. I think if we want to talk about what reflects us, it’s more of an average of attitudes. I think it’s natural that we will have ‘happy’ and ‘sad’ moments, but if we can have many more positive moments, than negative ones, we’ll be alright. So let’s keep smiling, and define our attitude instead of letting it define us! Thanks for your visit to my site, take care!!

Thanks for the visit and for your thoughts. I agree with your insight about having happy and sad moments, but like you said the more positive moments, and I would say “responses” we have the more positive we will become. I don’t think that having a positive attitude means that we don’t ever feel the sad or pain. It is what we choose to do after we have felt the emotions of each situation – this choice reflects who we are. I look forward to hearing more from you!
I have always wondered is a positive attitude inherent or a choice? Are some of us built to be more optimistic and positive? I am finding for myself that if I shout out loud that I am going to be happy and positive, it really helps wakes up my soul to a great day.

Great question. I feel that having a positive attitude is something that everyone can develop, but it takes conscious choice. I look at it like building a muscle. When you first start to build the muscle, it can be painful and you don’t usually see immediate results. But as you consciously and continuously work the muscle, the pain subsides and you start to see results. Sometimes it does take a “shout out loud” moment to assist you in making the conscious choice to be positive.
great analogy with the muscle. I heard a speaker encourage a gratitude journal write down three things to be grateful for each day, I am trying it and I like it. Gratitude helps my attitude.
