Attitude - You choose the attitude you will radiate.       or  

Here is one inspiring example.

She was 92 years old, petite and well poised. She was dressed early each morning with her hair fashionably coifed and her makeup perfectly applied in spite of the fact she now had very poor eyesight. Her husband of 61 years had recently passed away and so on this day, she was moving into a nursing home.

After many hours waiting patiently in the lobby, she smiled sweetly when told her room was finally ready. As she walked slowly with her walker, a nurse briefly described her tiny room.   With cheerful enthusiasm she responded. "I love it." The surprised nurse replied, "But Mrs. Jones, you haven't even seen your room yet."   In response, Mrs. Jones said,   "That doesn't matter.

"My happiness is something that I decide on ahead of time. Whether I will like the room does not depend on how the room is arranged.   It depends only on how I arrange my mind.   I have already decided to love it.   That is the decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice. I can spend each day thinking about the difficulty I have with some parts of my body that no longer work well, or I can get out of bed and be thankful for the parts of me that still do work. Each day is a gift. And as long as I can focus on each new day and remember all of the happy memories I have stored away ... that is all I need for this day."

Each of us possesses a God-given ability
to choose to be happy and positive and radiate happiness.
