While indulging in this book on how to make your workplace a better working environment, I reflected on a particular aspect that I would like to apply to my mental environment.

Choose Your Attitude

Since being real with myself and coming to terms with my true emotions concerning the demise of my last relationship and friendship, I have pretty much chosen to have a “down in the dumps” attitude. Often smiling and appearing to enjoy myself, deep down I have chosen to be depressed about it. Every night before I go to sleep, I choose to think about him and focus on what happened for things to go south. And every morning when I wake up, I choose to put the sad face on because he didn’t call me in the middle of the night to invite me back into his life.

I know, I know…I’m pretty doggone pathetic over here. But the moral of this is that I choose what face to put on. I choose if I am going to let today be a good day or a bad day. I choose how I am going to feel each day. I choose if I am going to allow my heart to open again. I choose if I am going to entertain the guy at Wal-Mart who tried to pick me up by asking if Rice Dream milk tastes good. In his case, I chose not to.

Life is about choices. Sometimes we aren’t given a choice, but we dohave a choice on how we are going to react/respond. Today I want to make a conscious effort to pay better attention to my attitude. I do not want others to influence me and the decisions I make. It really is totally up to me. It is mychoice. And I choose the right choice for me. I choose to be happy.

Blessings & Prosperity!
