Sunday Story…Life lifes

Life is going to life. That’s what it does. It doesn’t matter what you do life is going to move ahead. The sun will come up tomorrow. The wind will blow (or not). It will rain (or not). Good things will happen. Bad things will happen. There isn’t much agency you can apply to a lot of these things. You are not in control of most of it. Life will life.

The one thing you can control is what your attitude is about the things life throws up. It is the only thing under your control. It is the only thing that can never be taken from you. You health can go, your freedom taken, the sun hidden and the rain never ceasing but your attitude is all yours. And it is all yours to do what you want with.

You can choose to have a crappy attitude about what’s happening or you can choose something else. You can arise in the morning and choose cranky and tired. Or you can arise with the “it’s a great day to be alive” outlook…Your choice. You can get depressed about your circumstances and you can be excited about the challenges you get to face…Your choice. You hang your head or jump for joy…Your choice.

Control the thing you can control. Let the rest of it go. Success isn’t permanent and Failure isn’t fatal. It is your attitude that matters.
