Attitude is Everything

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.

"YEA!" 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......
Leave the rest to God
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...
It's about learning to dance in the rain.

In reply ,I'm telling you one more story..
Once upon a time there in india lived a Dervish(Sufi Fakir Or Saint) who was known for his attitude or free way of living.
Once ,he went just middle of the road and slept there as thats his bed,then onlookers went and said in bad language that,hey ,mad man come out from the middle of the road as king will pass from here soon.
He smiled ,and said ,"Thats why."
Again ,after some time one man who happened to be the head of army of that village came and shouted at dervish but did not used bad language .Again ,Dervish smiled and said,"thats why."
After some time minister of village came and asked their servants to put that Dervish side of the road.
Again Dervish smiled and said, "thats why."
At the last King came when he seen Dervish on road he went running near him and touched his feets and went away.
Again Dervish smiled and said ,"Thats why."

anonymous boxer,
You made my day! thank you so much!

thanks for sharing that story.

Thank you for visiting and nice comment. Yes, I think we all need daily reminders. How easily we forget.

Hi Beth,
I can't imagine what you're going thru with the fires out in CA. I read your post today and totally understand how exhausted you must be with the tv showing you so much, then not knowing what's in store. Please keep the faith!

Hi Sam,
Thank you for visiting and I agree, attitude is everything! Attitude and keeping positive can do wonders in our life.

You are one of those gentle souls.
They are rare but they do exist. The kindness rubs off though I'm nowhere near as gentle as you, one day I may be so.

That's exactly the sort of reminder I needed tonight, Andrea! Thanks. I'm going to bed without counting any of my grey hairs lol :)

Hi Cooper,
Thanks you so much for your kind words... I don't think you give yourself enough credit...believe me, I can have a rough moment or two :0)

Hi Simone,
Glad I could bring a positive reminder to you. I gave up on counting the greys..now I just 'wash' them away. Couldn't pluck 'em, 10 more would grow...haha
I think everyone could use a dose of positive on a daily basis, myself included. It's all in the state of mind...
