Last year I was doing a much better job at regular blogging. I was doing the photo-a-day project and I had a broken shoulder to moan about. Now left to my own imagination and no injuries I’m finding it hard to come up with posts. I obviously need prompts…
GOM has been doing an A-Z blogging challenge and I think I might give it a go too. I’m not going to dither over, or research, what word to use for each letter; I’m going to approach this as if I’m on an analyst’s couch and he’s got 26 flash cards and is instructing me to “say the first thing that comes into your head”.
So A …..
Now, you might think that Australia would be the first word to pop into my head but no, my “A” word is Attitude.
The first time I heard the word Attitude was probably via my father saying some version of “you’d better improve your attitude young lady”.
Now I’m a big, grown-up adult my attitude and disposition is generally a happy, positive one. We’ve all heard that a positive attitude will get you a long way in life and through life. Well, I’m still waiting for this positive attitude to take me a “long way” but then I suppose it did get me a long way from home!
And, I hope that it will lead to a long(er), health(ier) life because sometimes being positive can be bloody hard work! Much harder than being negative and hostile which probably comes naturally to quite a few of us.
But I think it’s worth trying to adjust our attitude towards the positive end of the spectrum because as Cavett Robert said: If you don’t think every day is a good day, just try missing one.
