With so much going on in today’s busy world, it’s all too easy to get a bad attitude when something doesn’t go as expected. I have to confess that I let myself get annoyed recently when I wanted to make an appointment and was waiting for a call back, but did not get a prompt response. I started to feel like maybe I was being ignored on purpose. They did eventually call, and of course the most likely explanation is that they were just disorganized and it was nothing personal at all.

Word-art that says "Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference." -Winston S. Churchill 

Sometimes those little annoyances are best taken as nothing more than life’s helpful reminders that an attitude adjustment might be called for!

  1. Oh so true, Meg! I’m always impressed by my hubby’s attitude… nothing really fazes him. It’s his innate Californian cool, I guess 🙂
    A great post!

    • I’m originally from California too, but never managed to acquire the laid-back surfer attitude while I was there! Oh well, I suppose it’s never too late to learn! 🙂

  2. Yes you are right again 🙂 Amazing how just changing our attitude a little can make a big difference!

  3. It’s so easy to think that ‘they’re all out to get me’ Meg but that attitude doesn’t make me feel any better ~ on the contrary, more things happen that annoy me. But if I adjust my thinking just a little bit, life seems to flow much more smoothly! 🙂
