Better or Worse

prunus-branches-Any situation, whether “good” or “bad”, will be made better or worse by the attitude we bring when facing it.

Will a negative attitude ever improve a bad situation? Even a positive situation can be spoiled by a poor attitude. In contrast, a negative situation can be made tolerable by a good attitude, and an already positive situation can be vastly improved.

We may not be able to control all aspects of a given situation, but the attitude we bring is always ours to determine. Which will you choose?
