Attitude Determines Altitude!


I woke up early today, excited over all that I
get to do before the clock strikes midnight.
I have responsibilities to fulfill today.
I am important.
My job is to choose what kind of day
I am going to have.


Rabbit


Today I can complain
because the weather is rainy
or I can be thankful that the grass
is getting watered for free.


Deer


Today I can feel sad
because I don't have more money or
I can be more grateful
for the many things that I already have.


Rabbit


Today I can grumble about my health
or I can rejoice that I am alive.


Rabbit


Today I can lament over all that my parents
didn't give me when I was growing up
or I can feel grateful
that they allowed me to be born.


Deer


Today I can cry because roses have thorns
or I can celebrate
that thorns have roses.


Rabbit


Today I can mourn for my lack of friends
or I can excitedly embark upon a quest
to discover new relationships.


Rabbit


Today I can whine
because I have to go to work
or I can shout for joy
because I have a job to do.


Deer


Today I can complain
because I have to go to school
or I can eagerly open my mind and fill it
with rich new tidbits of knowledge.


Rabbit


Today I can murmur dejectedly
because I have to do housework
or I can feel honored
because the Lord has provided
shelter for my mind, body and soul.


Rabbit


Today stretches ahead of me,
waiting to be shaped.
And here I am, the sculptor
who gets to do the shaping.


Deer


What today will be like is up to me.
I'm the one who gets to choose
what kind of day I will have!
