Charles R. Swindoll

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes" -Charles R. Swindoll

I found this quote when scrolling through lovers in vain and it hit home pretty well. Unfortunately I think I can have a bad attitude when it comes to certain situations and I've been trying to work on it. When you're stressed about school or work or relationships etc., try and keep a positive outlook. Sometimes it just makes dealing a lot easier.
