I had a mentor in my life that always reminded me, “Your attitude determines your altitude”.
I don’t know anyone that has the greatest attitude or is always positive 24 hours a day 7 days a week, but what if we made a conscious effort to begin to look for the true value in the things and people around us?
Do I love getting up for work at 4:30 in the morning? Uh, No. But I do love those mornings when the sun is just coming up and the birds are singing.
Do I love dealing with a difficult co-worker on a daily basis? Again, No. But I can handle each situation with that individual with a sort of grace and compassion.
Do I necessarily love all of the extra safety measures that have been put into place during these difficult times we are all going through. No, not especially. But my attitude can be one of, I get to go to work today!
Attitude: a settled way of thinking or feeling about someone or something
If an attitude is that thing which I can settle into, a choice to see the positive in the situations that may arise and the people I come in contact with everyday then there’s nowhere to go but up!
