Attitude

A friend sent this to me in an email. Enjoy!
There once was a woman who woke up one morning,
looked in the mirror,
and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.
"Well," she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today."

So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up,
looked in the mirror
and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.

"H-M-M," she said,

"I think I'll part my hair down the middle today."

So she did and she had a grand day.

The next day she woke up,
looked in the mirror and noticed
that she had only one hair on her head.
"Well," she said, "today I'm going
to wear my hair in a pony tail."
So she did, and she had a fun, fun day.


The next day she woke up,

looked in the mirror and noticed

that there wasn't a single hair on her head.

"YAY!" she exclaimed.

"I don't have to fix my hair today!"

Attitude is everything.

Be kinder than necessary,

for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Live simply,

Love generously,

Care deeply,

Speak kindly.......

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...



It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Thank you, Cindy, for the inspirational message. Yes, your life and your happiness all depends upon your attitude. I think I'm optimistic but I have to confess that, if I only had one hair on my head, I would really need to up my optimism to think of a ponytail!
