“The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day 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% how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes.”

~ Charles Swindoll, The Daily OWN Contributor ~


Today’s wisdom reminds us that a positive outlook and attitude is a choice. We are responsible for our own energy in any given situation. That means we determine whether we will react unconsciously or respond consciously and contentiously to life’s twists and turns.

Spend ten life-affirming minutes today reading an article from O, The Oprah Magazine on why a positive attitude is good for your health. And then resolve to respond with love in every situation. Reflect love, hope, compassion, empathy and joy.

Be well … and WISE!
