Attitude is everything!

How empowered would you feel if you knew that you have the ability to create each day?  I can hear the questions flooding in your head.  I can create each day?  What about fate?  What  about God? Aren’t we all living our destiny?  I too asked many of these same questions and more when I heard that I can and am in control of my life.  I have come to understand that this is true no matter if your Christian, Muslim, Buddhist or even Atheist.  It all boils down to one choice.  The choice to be happy.  With this one choice your life can change dramatically.

I know it sounds to simple to be true.  But think about it… What would it look like to be truly happy?  Would everything be perfect? Depending on your definition of perfect, life will never be without flaw.  However with the ups and down you are in control of one thing your attitude to each and every situation that you encounter.  You choose to be happy, sad, frustrated, mad, melancholy, and excited.  Many of us think that emotions are like automatic reactions to people and events. This is not true.

 Once you consciously decide to be happy the way you look at life shifts.  Instead of allowing circumstance to decide how you feel, you choose how it will affect you.  This is not to say you will never feel sad or unhappy. But I am saying that once you understand you control your emotions, you have power over your life. 

 For example, lets say your toddler is sleeping, and your preschooler is having quiet time.  You think everything is going well, so you pull out your book and relax.  About thirty minutes later you go in to check on your preschooler, to find her prancing around in your Minolo Blanikas sling backs. How cute, is first thought till you realize that she has cut off the straps!!!!  At this moment you have the power to choose how to feel and thus react to the situation.  You can be angry and yell at your 4 year old who only thought she did a great thing for mommy by making a new design for her shoes.  Or stop and think about the situation, first they are only shoes (I know they are expensive, but in reality they are just shoes), and second by being angry what outcome is that going to produce?  I use this example because it happened to me.  No I wasn’t happy in sense that I was grinning ear to ear, but I wasn’t angry either. In this instance I chose not to react in a negative way.  Believe me there was a consequence for her action.  She sat in time out and wasn’t able to play with her ponies (her favorite toy).  Since I didn’t react out of anger I was able to explain to why that wasn’t okay.  She learned a lesson, and it wasn’t don’t cut someones shoes because they’ll get mad and yell at you. 

Nobody will ever say they want to be unhappy, but when you choose be positive, positive things will come back to you.  Its the law of attraction.  Of course this will not happen overnight, but with practice you find that you will react in a more positive manor which will produce a more positive outcome. 

How do you start?  First, like anything else it starts with a choice. You must choose to be happy!  Make the decision to keep your life positive.  By looking at the positive side in each situation, life will begin to seem less chaotic.  Remember that attitude is everything. With happiness you will find the one thing we are all searching for… peace. 

Much love, Reneca

  1. This is so true…My Mother has been telling me this for years! Thanks for the important reminder. 🙂

  2. The Secret movie was an awesome example of how the law of attraction can summon the universal powers to manifest people situations and material things into your life.

    All of the presenters had compelling stories that described in detail how their lives changed once they applied the secret principals.

    I watched the movie several times only to discover the secret was never revealed nor did they explain how to actually make the law of attraction work in your favor.

    I searched for a year and finally discovered exactly how the secret law of attraction works.

    Anybody can put the principals to work for them and change their life dramatically in a short period of time.

    It’s true, they are laws and they work all the time but its your choice to make them work for you and not against you.
