Controlling the Chaos: A little inspiration



The best way to start to be able to control the chaos - is to get control of our attitude.


There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.

"Well," she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today!"So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.

"Hmmm," she said, "I think I'll part my hair down the middle today!" So she did and she had a grand day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head.

"Well," she said, "today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail." So she did and she had a fun, fun day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head.

"YEA!" she exclaimed, "I don't have to fix my hair today!"

Attitude is everything.

Be kinder than necessary,

For everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Live simply

Love generously

Care deeply

Speak kindly...

....Leave the rest to God

Excellent post! Thanks so much for sharing it with us. Attitude really affects so much. Our own attitude not only affects us but can affect those around us. Good, positive attitudes make for a much better day!

Take care,
