I need a better attitude

There are so many things happening right now that are negative. So much discouragement. There are trees sales that aren't happening, friends with cancer, broken marriages and so much more. As hard as I try to stay possitive, it sometimes is almost too much. And then.......I drive by a field of cows. I see these cows in the pouring down rain and wind. I see them in the heat of the sun. They are in the same field day after day, night after night. They eat the same thing over and over. They never go shopping. They never hang out with their friends. And I say to myself, come on girl, it could be worse, you could be a cow. Today I will work on my attitude. I will be positive and look forward to what I have to do instead of being fearful. I will do my best and then try hard to improve. And, I will do it with a smile.

I'm right there with you! The older I get it seems that I am hearing more sad news or perhaps I am just more aware and since we can't change the situation, we need to change our attitudes. What a great post! I will pray that you will sell your trees.

Hang in there!

Even though it doesn't seem like it could get ANY worse and everyday is like 1000 lbs on your shoulder, just know that your attitude helps the pain & as hard it may be to change the attitude, it sure makes you feel better when you can breath a little & smile! No faking either. You cant hold it all in. If you need to talk and let all your worries & stresses out too You know you have me to talk to. I may not know what to do or say but atleast I can listen and make you smile. I do kind of look like you so it would have to be a mirror effect, if you see me smile.....then you have to! ok I'm a dork. See you in a bit. Oh yah & your deffinately not a cow..Youre FOX-Y!
