New Attitude

When I was a kid there was a song by Patti LaBelle called New Attitude. She sang about lessons learned and she was feeling good and has a new attitude. With the world’s state of affairs I think we are all down and blue. It is easy to fit in to the would and have a Eeyore ( from Pooh) attitude; gloomy and depressing. I think if we start with a better attitude it will all fall into place.

It’s all in the attitude. On Sunday’s after church it is normal for members to stop and talk to one another, fellowship! A long time member said “well how are you today?” I said Wonderful! He said wonderful? I said yes wonderful! He said I have never heard anyone say they are wonderful. I think in our day in time people are down. I mean down right depressed. Just because things are tough doesn’t mean we have to fall into the cycle of poor me my life is terrible.

About a year ago my husband heard a local radio host  respond to how are you with a “The best day of my life!”  Randy thought he would try it. When you say best day of my life people are taken back. Maybe thinking why? You should try it and see what happens.

When I was a kid my mom would say “if you don’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all!” I think she knew what she was talking about. When someone asks you How are you doing? Do they really want to know or care how you are doing are is it just a greeting? Maybe we need to start really caring and take time to see those who are really hurting out there. Truly loving our neighbor as the Lord has commanded us!
