The one thing you can always control is your attitude. “Am I going to live this day sour, discouraged, with a chip on my shoulder, or am I going to live in faith, hopeful, kind, happy, seeing the best”? This is a decision we have to make each day. If you’re going to have a good attitude, you’re going to have to do it on purpose because all kinds of negative things will try to creep in: discouragement, self-pity, bitterness. If you’re not proactive, if you don’t choose to have the right attitude, then the wrong attitude will show up!
