A healthy attitude is contagious but don't wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier.
So much of how life is experienced is determined by attitude. Two people can experience the same thing and how completely different consequences, solely based on the attitude of the individuals. A person with a positive attitude will take a setback as an opportunity, a failure as a lesson, and misfortune as a chance to share. Consider Tiny Tim in the Christmas Carol who, though crippled, wanted the people at church to see him so that on seeing him they might remember who it was that made the lame to walk and thus have joy on Christmas. Although ill and feeble, Tiny Tim;s positive attitude brought joy to his family and even to Scrooge.
A positive attitude makes fortunes out of misfortunes while a negative attitude brings gloom to a sunny day.
Attitude is most important while interacting with your sweetheart. A negative attitude will create an offensive where none was intended, a misunderstanding over a misspoken word or a grudge from a simple mistake. You cannot control your sweetie's words and actions, but you can control how you react to those words and actions based on your attitude. A positive out-look on life and a positive attitude toward your sweetheart will smooth over many of the bumps on the road of life.
Let us be like the reformed Ebeneezer Scrooge and keep Christmas in our hearts all the year long.
