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 only had two hairs on her head

"H-M-M," 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.......


Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...
It's about learning to dance in the rain!




Have a THUNDEROUS WEEK EVERYONE!

Hi Michelle!

What beautiful words of wisdom! And so true. We often forget to appreciate the things that we have and only think of the bad things. Life is short so we must enjoy it as if each day were our last.
Thanks for a wonderful message! And by the way...I do love your blog!
xoxo

What a wonderful post Michelle. Thank you for always knowing how to lift me up. I'll have to remember this poem next time I am complaining that my hair is just too darn thick to do anything with.
You have a grandiose day too!!
