Attitude ~

More days than not, I find myself complaining or feeling sorry for myself about my life's troubles. I received one of those "pass-around" emails today and was very inspired by it and wanted to share it with my friends. Enjoy this and have a wonderfully fun weekend!




There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.


Well," she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today?" So she did and she had a wonderful day.



The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.


"H-M-M," she said, "I think I'll part my hair down the middle today?" So she did and she had a grand day.



The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head.


"Well," she said, "today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail." So she did and she had a fun, fun day.



The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head.



"YEA!" she exclaimed, "I don't have to fix my hair today!"



Attitude is everything.




Be kinder than necessary for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.



Live simply,

Love generously,

Care deeply,

Speak kindly....... Leave the rest to God




Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...

It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Over the years I've gotten probably every email joke/inspiration/urban legend/tag/etc. that you can possibly imagine(this one included)and I've enjoyed almost all of them...this was a good one. What a great attitude to have. Thanks for sharing. :)
