What I Learned Today - July 24, 2012
Attitude is what you make it. Only you are in control of how you handle things, how you react and how you'll move forward.
Not to give too much away about my summer internship, I work with kids (mostly teens) who have some things going on in their lives and who have some issues.
I was explaining to one of the girls in my group--she is in control. She can turn around a sucky day and make it a positive. She can decide to move on with a good attitude.
So grab your drinks (Arizona raspberry iced tea, for me!) and let's make a toast. Let's try as hard as we possibly can to stop with the "moods." We'll put smiles on our faces and step strongly into the face of tough times* with the upmost grace, positivity and fearlessness.
*and by tough times I mean anything from getting gum stuck under your shoe, to dealing with family problems, to sitting in four hours of traffic, to losing a job, to sitting next to the baby that won't stop crying.
