The big A

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, or a home. The remarkable thing is that we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past. Nor can we change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We also cannot change the inevitable. The only thing that 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 or our attitudes.

Charles Swindoll.

When I first read this passage, I couldn't help to smile. Yea, it's so true. We cannot change what surrounds us but we can change what's inside. No matter how hard life knocks you down, you can always get back up again. It all depends on your attitude.

Many has chased the packaging but forgot to work on the content. Many has chased beauty but forgot to work on their attitude. I've met a bunch of people who told me that appearance is important, but as I go on I realize that attitude is much more important. Beauty always works inside out. When you're glowing inside, you can't cover it. People will see it.

So women, let's be a woman of attitude. That's how we got our 'A'.
