There are many choices we make in life, some big and some small. This past week I received a new toy, and while it was just a toy the decision was not easy. Fist, was it a good choice to buy? Then which option? Yet, beyond the decision of what to buy was how to respond to the purchase. Choosing not to second guess myself I was able to build excitement and anticipation. You control your emotions by choosing your mindset, and thus choosing your attitude and responses.
Words can never adequately convey the incredible impact of our attitudes toward life. The longer I live the more convinced I become that life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we respond to it.

Gratitude and Kindness are one of two pillars in creating a successful life. Whenever I have turned to anger as a guide for my actions it has always come back to bite me. Where as if I try to take the other persons view into account, and go with kindness … I have typically been rewarded.
