Attitude, plus a little funny

A friend of mine at work has this posted at her desk. It's Charles Swindoll's take on attitude. It's so good and true and I just thought someone might need to hear it like I do these days. If you knew some of the people that I work with, you'd know why :)

"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, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, 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 every day regarding the attitude we embrace for that day. We canot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will react 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% how I react to it. And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes."
-Charles Swindoll

Now, onto the funny part of this post...Collin's mom sent this to us yesterday and it's hilarious. Make sure you watch it with the volume turned up.
