“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
Attitude, to me, is more important than facts.
It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.
It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill.
It will make or break a company… a church… a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday 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% of how I react to it.
And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.”
(Charles R. Swindoll – American Writer and Clergyman, b.1934)
I met this lady in her little village located nearby Lucknow, the capital of the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.
It is a place where Muslim and Hindu families are living together in harmony.
Everywhere I could feel a real spirit of happiness coming from the impact of attitude on life decided once by the elders of this amazing place.
This beautiful lady ensures the perspective that aging can be a simple and wonderful thing.
