Disposition Determines Delightful Days

How do you get up in the morning? Are you apt to say, "Good morning, Lord!" or "Good Lord, morning?!" That's an old joke from preachers of decades ago, but it still makes the point. Why get up and start the day with a negative attitude? Truthfully, it's much easier to be negative than it is to be positive. Circumstances are difficult and challenging each and every day, so it's easy to fall into that "woe is me", full of self-pity mentality.

Recently, I've felt some pressure in my own life. Sometimes circumstances haven't gone well and some things haven't turned out like I wanted them to. Whatever the circumstances are, I cannot allow them to control my life.

Martha Washington said it best when she noted, "I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances."

Do you get up every morning with a smile on your face and a song in your heart? Are you determined to learn something new every day? Or do you dread the day ahead or do you just meander through it, exercising your routine day after day? It's not too late to start with a great attitude. Yes, it'll take about 30 days to get it in gear, but start today. Why wait?!
