Why does a bad attitude seem to be so normal these days? Because it’s easier!!! You can blame others for your problems. You don’t have to take responsibility for your own actions!!
What if for one day you chose to have a good attitude no matter what happens? So the lady at the grocery store was rude, the restaurant got your order wrong, your child ruined your favorite shirt… What if for one day we looked upon others with compassion? You never know what is going on in the lives of other people! The lady at the grocery store could have just found out her husband is having an affair, the waitress at the restaurant could have just failed her mid-term exams and her meager tips aren’t getting her any further out of debt. Your child admires you so much that they decided to put on your favorite shirt to be just like mom, but being the clumsy girl that she is spilt juice all over it.
We are so quick to jump to conclusions! She just has no personality, she doesn’t need to be working here, and you are always messing up our stuff.
Be kind when someone else isn’t and be merciful when someone makes a mistake. Each day we make an impact in the world for good or bad. What will you choose?
