I made the decision long ago that I could choose my attitude and every morning I wake up making the choice to have a good attitude. I surround myself with people who have a good attitude and I thrive on others who are positive.
Sure, you'll hear my rant about things from time to time. But for the most part I always look for the bright side. Take this week. I have sat through two days of meetings that were a waste of my time but I turned it into a positive- I got to spend time with great friends, reconnect with some great challenging minds, eat amazing lobster, had time to catch up on emails and had a stimulating phone conversation with a co-worker. See it's how you look at.
This morning I had to be up at 4:00 eastern time to catch a flight home but it's a beautiful morning and my cab driver was the best. He was upbeat, friendly and was just the thing I needed to stay on track. And don't get me started on the crew at Starbucks this morning! Those ladies were ready to help the amateur orderer with patience and smiles. So now I'm sitting enjoying my coffee watching the out the window, what a luxury for me. By the way I love airports with rocking chairs.
I certainly don't have this profound statement in this post. I'm sure for some of you, you're a little disappointed that you took the time to read this and think- wow I've waisted my time-- You missed my point... I wish you luck.
