Attitude is EVERYTHING!

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! 🙂

The LORD is my God! I will praise him and tell him how thankful I am.” Psalm 118:28 (CEV)

This day belongs to the LORD! Let’s celebrate and be glad today.” Psalm 118:24 (CEV)

This is my plan for the day! How about you?
With love… Jennifer

    Friends, I wish I had written this – but no… I don't even know where I first saw it. I have a bad habit of saving things without referencing them. It is an encouragement booster, isn't it?


  3. I have read that before…did you write it? It is delightfully refreshing! I love it!

  4. I had this very same thought this morning – that my attitude is what makes the difference 🙂
    Thanks for the confirmation!

  5. I needed this today! Thank you for sharing. I've had an attitude adjustment =]

  6. Attitude is so much everything. I can tell a person to have a great day and they would respond back my saying what is so good about it? And I would tell them well for one you are alive. It's amazing that if we would just stop looking at the things that bother us and the challenges we face and keep a good attitude we will survive somethings. No need to have a bad attitude because it surely won't get you nowhere in life. Thanks for sharing this I hope you have a great day.
