“With a positive attitude, the world is your oyster. Without it, your world will be filled with ill fate and unfortunate circumstances.”
A couple a days ago after I got my Covid booster and Flu shots ny daughter and I went to an large old favorite restaurant and discovered there was only one lady working in the front, she was hostess, bartender and waitress covering two large sections. She did a good job since there were only a few patrons, in the past there would always be many more.
On top of that my favorite Steak and Shake and Penn Station restaurants are now closed. My world is changing and not to my liking. I just have to adjust and stay positive.
Attitude on Life
The longer I live, the more I realise the impact of attitude on life.
It is more important than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than whatever anyone might say or do.
It is more important than appearances, giftedness or skill.
The remarkable thing is that we have the choice to create the attitude we have for that day.
We cannot change our past. We cannot change the way people act. We cannot change the inevitable.
The one thing we can change is the only thing we have control over, and that is our attitude.
I am convinced that life is 10% what actually happens to us and 90% how we react to it.
“Do not allow negative thoughts to enter your mind for they are weeds that strangle confidence.”
A friend said: Our five-year-old son went to a church conference with my wife and me. He got restless, so my wife handed him a pad and pencil and suggested he mark down every time the speaker said the word “and.” After a while, he grew bored, and I asked, “Would you like to listen for a different word?”
“Yes,” he whispered. “I’d like to listen for ‘Amen’.”
My neighbor has a circular driveway. He can’t get out.
A woman’s husband asked her what she wanted for her birthday. She thought for a moment and said, “This year I just want cold, hard cash for a change.”
The following day her husband fulfilled her request. He put $40 in nickels, dimes and quarters into a quart jar, then filled it with water and placed it in the freezer.
On her birthday he handed his wife a solidly frozen bottle of change.
“All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure.”
Two rural church deacons who were having a sociable beer in the local tavern when they saw their minister drive by and take a good long look at their pickup trucks parked outside.
One deacon ducked down and said, “I hope the reverend didn’t see us or recognize my pick-up.”
The other replied indifferently, “What difference does it make. God knows we’re in here… and he’s the only one who counts.”
The first deacon countered, “But God won’t tell my wife.”
My wife keeps complaining I never listen to her…or something like that.
A new man is brought into Prison Cell 102. Already there is a long-time resident who looks 100 years old. The new man looks at the old-timer inquiringly.
The old-timer says, “Look at me. I’m old and worn out. You’d never believe that I used to live the life of Riley. I wintered on the Riviera, had a boat, four fine cars, the most beautiful women, and I ate in all the best restaurants of France.”
The new man asked, “What happened?”
“One day Riley reported his credit cards missing!”
“Never forget to smile because a positive attitude will surely motivate you to get back on your feet after you committed a huge mistake.”
