A choice I make
I’m as guilty of it as the next person.
It’s not uncommon that I struggle to have a good attitude toward something.
Maybe it’s someone else’s bad day.
Maybe it’s my husbands irritation with the people he had to deal with that day.
Maybe I’m having a bad day myself.
Whatever it is... the fact that the thoughts that turn into a bad attitude come into my head is not the problem. It’s what I do with those thoughts.
They can simply stay thoughts, or become an entire attitude.
When I put truth up next to those ill thoughts, it’s easier to conquer them.
It’s never self-centered thoughts or make-belief happy thoughts.
It’s always a choice between self and the truth.
May I always strive to live in truth’s reality and not self pity. (It really goes a long ways when someone else is having a rough day.)
Note: It never goes well when I chose the path of self____ (you fill in the blank;)
