My next speech for me for Toastmasters I am going to try to a humorous speech and this is going to be a challenge for me so I am going to start right away to start drafting that speech.

Talking about “attitude” is easy though ~ because this is a lesson that I understand. So much of what happens in life is handed to us and we have no control over it or it has happened and there is no way to “undo it”.

So there you are, you are in an unhappy place ~ what are  you going to do? You can complain, You can do all sorts of things but in the better sense for your own health and sanity ~ it is best to just move on.  A friend of mine says “It could be worse” – and she is right, in most cases, it could definitely be worse.

Count your blessing, take a lesson from life, and move on. You will be happier for not wasting your time and energy in a way that only makes you more unhappy.

I do, and you also – have much to be thankful for- let’s focus on those things.

  1. I beg to differ. I dont think attitude is what we control, it is more about our how appropriate our responses are to situations we face..

      Thanks somewhere for your comment. When I am talking about attitude what I meant was how we each respond to events and so I believe we are in agreement.


      • Then we are! I have noticed this thing,that the average human is always obsessed with concept of controlling others so much that he/she might only understand the literal meaning of the title, not the inner one. Thats what I am talking about..
