More About Attitude

- POSTED ON: Jul 05, 2011

Attitude is a feeling about a person or thing.
It is a tendency or orientation of the mind.

I frequently address the issue of Attitude
because I've found it to be extremely important in my own life.
Whether my own attitude is positive or negative
makes a big difference in how I feel, and what I accomplish.

I don't see any purpose in feeling bad about myself,
if feeling good about myself is possible,
so I continually work toward that goal.
I also work to feel good about others,
and about the things and events in my life. 

I use the term "work" because that is exactly what it is.
I wasn't born with a "pollyanna" personality,
or taught as a child to focus on the positive.

This is a skill I've had to learn,
and for me, it is a deliberate choice that takes conscious effort...
to sustain an attitude that is primarily positive.

Anotherword of wisdom homerun. I remember Oct 6, 2009 thinking, "enough is enough". I was going to lose weight and I was going to learn enough as if I were going to start my own "weight loss program". This was before I knew 3500cal=1# (supposedly), had logged one mouthful of food, at the Hampton Inn Breakfast buffet area with my kids going to see NASA for a home school outing. I remember psoting to Meg (3FC), I do not have your years of experience in maintaing (over ( yrs) but I do have steel eyed determination to never again be fat. She said that is all that it takes and it is true. The details follow the "tude".
