We are injured and hurt emotionally
~ not so much by other people
or what they say or don’t say ~
but by our own attitude
and our own response.
Today is as good a day as any for changing our attitude and reaping the rewards. Our attitude can keep us from doing our best. It stifles our growth and sometimes hurts ourselves and others too.
Adapting an attitude of gratitude can help us from falling into a negative way of thinking and behaving that is destructive and prevents us from being truly happy and content. There is always something to be grateful for, no matter how small and insignificant it may seem.
We can practice by replacing thoughts of negativity with positivity, despair with hope and starting from today we can have a new plan of action for taking responsibility for our own way of thinking.
