Make each day your masterpiece.John Wooden
A few days ago I mentioned that I am focusing on fun...as in, "Isn't this fun?"
I gotta tell you--it's making a difference. Am I having more fun? Not really. However, my attitude gets shifted on a regular basis.
When I am in a situation that tends toward stressing me out and I remember my new focus, I'll stop and say, "Isn't this fun?" with a smile on my face and everything. (Because how can you not smile when saying that?)
It doesn't really change a crappy situation, but it can--and usually does--change my crappy attitude. Am I really able to find a fun aspect in those situations? Not always. And that's okay. My insides are happier and that counts.
