Pink Horned Flowers

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.

Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, 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 will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will 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 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes.

Charles Swindoll

I needed this last week. I think I may start reading this to myself every morning as I make coffee.


  1. I am literally sitting here with tears in my eyes...I too, think I need to begin my day with this wonderful quote.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing it.

  2. I love to listen to Swindol on the radio. He is a great storyteller and has a wonderful laugh.

  3. Very. Very. True. Hope you're doing okay--if your pictures are an indicator of your attitude, I'd say things are LOOKING GOOD!

  4. Nice quote. Also, love the hearts a burstin'. Miss ours from the old house :(
