As I take my lunch break today, my mind is racing about all the things I have left that I'd like to get done at work today since my day tomorrow is jam-packed with meetings.
I obtained the following from Hyman's Seafood in Charleston, SC. The restaurant had a bunch of business card size cards that contained a variety of different sayings, motto's, etc. I'm hoping I can keep this one in mind today and every other day! Some of you have probably seen this before ~

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string, we have, and that is our attitude... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our ATTITUDES. ~Author of "Attitude" Chuck Swindoll

I think this is worthy of being posted above my desk at work, along with all over my house!
Happy Monday everyone! Back to work I go...with a positive attitude!!

True Kirsten - I agree. I read elsewhere that "it is your attitude that makes your altitude". Wonderful message on Attitude. I am going to pass this one among my friends too. Thanks for sharing !
