Life Is….

20 May

When we were born there came no instruction manual with us. As understanding as that is it still brings to question just what we are being put in. I’m sure our parents had a learning experience, especially if we were a first child. I know as a new parent I was wondering during why there was no instructions on how to care for such a new life.

As we grew up, learned to talk and finally to do things on our own we all faced disappointments and many hard times. It sure would have been nice to have a instruction manual to help us find our way out of the hole we dug for ourselves. So for the most part life is a self taught experience. No, I am not discounting school and our parents I am just saying that since we make the choices, we are self teaching.

So just what is life? I have found, over the years, life is 90 percent attitude and 10 percent hope. I know you will question that so let me spell it out.

Life is full of bumps and obstacles and it is up to us how we adapt to these obstacles and bumps in the road. Being given free will at birth we have the choice on how we perceive these occurrences. We can chose to take a positive approach or we can get upset and be negative.

How we take the experience forms how we grow and how people come to know us. Our attitude, good or bad, defines us and follows us throughout our life. Attitude determines our future and is 90 percent of our life. With a good one we are unstoppable, with a bad one we are miserable.

Sometimes no matter how hard we try, something gets in the way. This is where hope comes in play. If we allow ourselves to learn from our experience, there is always hope we will finally get it right.

Life was never promised to be a bed of roses, but with a good positive attitude and a little hope we can make the best of what we are dealt. One thing for sure it will build our character and show us just how strong we really are.

A bad attitude can literally block love, blessings and destiny from finding you. Don’t let your attitude be the reason you don’t succeed.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love,

Ed
