A Change of Attitude

I looked back at my last couple of posts and thought, "whoa, what a downer this person is. Her profile says she's a glass half full person but you surely couldn't prove by her posts lately."

So I decided to have an attitude adjustment.

I am looking at the sky that is filling with clouds and thinking how beautiful they are. Bright white at the edges and grey in the middle. Layers of fluffy looking structures that will bring us rain or snow or something. I am focusing on the beauty.

I am feeling the cold wind on my face and drawing my coat tighter around my neck and I am thinking about the invigorating feeling the cold air gives. It gives cheeks a rosy glow and makes your breath visible. I am focusing on the beauty.

God's world is an amazing place and the balances in nature are beyond my imagination and He made it all with a purpose. I am humbled and I am focusing on the beauty.

  1. I would love to be outside, feeling the cold air tickling my cheeks but unfortunately, I'm under the weather.

    Your attitude adjustment is inspiring! I'm glad that you're feeling better.

  2. Way to go on the attitude adjustment, Susan! But cut yourself some slack...we all have times when we are a little debbie downer (some, like me, more than others!)

  3. Focusing on the beauty is something I need to work on. I'm so bad at always finding the worst in a situation. Especially on bad days...

    Although the snow is falling today and I have to admit that it's pretty beautiful! My kids aren't fighting right this second...beautiful! :)

  4. It's great when we can shift our perspective. But the truth is that down days happen...right along with the good ones. It builds character and makes that cold air feel refreshing.
