It's All in the Attitude

While out running some errands with a dear friend of mine we decided to stop for a bite to eat.  As I approached the counter the woman on the other side was hell bent into an argument with the staff.  It was so bad that she was totally ignoring customers coming in to place orders.  When she had finished her rant, she never looked up or made eye contact with the customers.  It just made me think that if you are that unhappy doing what you are doing why not do something else?  We have all run across those people that make it their life's mission to hurl verbal assaults on others, "because they are going to set them straight."  What it boils down to is misery....and misery loves company.  If someone is having a bad day, wouldn't be nice to ruin someone else's day with a bad attitude? 

When your fung.....is moving with your schway...things just roll off like water on a duck's back.  The next time someone tries assault or insult your pleasant disposition, just give the a big smile and bid them a nice day.  You can choose to sink into their non-sense or your can rise above it, because when you walk away they are still stinking from their bad attitude.   I truly believe that happiness is an inside job, if you have to be a snapping turtle to everyone you meet, then it's time to make a change.  Life is too short to be unhappy or to live a life that is less than fulfilling.  It is so easy to lose sight of your dreams when the daily drudge of life is dumped upon you.  If you really want that thing that burns deep down in the bottom of you heart, it will come to you.  When it does, what will you do?  Will you cower back into the murky waters of uncertainty or will you embrace it? 

Your attitude towards change will determine what will happen next, because it means that you have to come out of your comfort zone.  In the comfort zone, there is death!  It will strangle the will and the life out of you, without you even realizing it.  If it is truly to be, your dream will find it's way back to you if you are not listening.  I know that is what happened with me.  When I left the corporate world I felt if the weight of the world had been lifted off of my shoulders!  I ran towards my dream, and have not grown weary yet!  Everyday I rise, I thank God for another day and I embrace another day of grooming!  My attitude is sunny even in a rain storm because I am doing what I love to do.  What have you always wanted to do?  I encourage you to dig it out!  Sometimes making tons of money does not make you happy. When I see the joy on a pet parent's face when I bring them back in the house it makes it all worth it!  When you find that thing that does it for you, your outlook on life changes almost instantly.  It's like taking a breath of fresh air, and suddenly people's bad attitudes don't affect you like they use to. You are soaring to high to worry about it.  

I heard a saying once.... your altitude is determined by your attitude!  I encourage you to spread your wings and fly!  So much more is waiting on the other side of the status qou!
