Attitude is Everything…

Attitude… strengthens the woman whose been told she will die within eighteen months from a very aggressive and rare form of cancer. It enables her to laugh when she really feels like crying, to work when she really feels like hiding under the covers, to keep living each day even though her body is tired from the fight.

Attitude…energizes the man who’s had a chronic, debilitating disease since he was fifteen. It gives him the strength to work for his family, even though he feels pain every minute of every day, year in and year out.  Attitude is what forces him out of bed each day to meet the challenges that come, and what keeps him from crying when he thinks of dying young.

Attitude…fortifies a tired spirit, replaces despair with hope, brings light into the darkness.

Attitude…is totally up to you.

  1. Each is admirable, Kirsche. I’d hope to similarly stoic in the face of such hardship.
