STOP AND THINK – If a negative attitude is not getting us where we want to go, then why not change the attitude? Reshaping attitudes is possible. Awareness is the key initial step. (Marsha Petrie Sue, author, speaker, and motivational coach)

Sue continues, “Non-participation gives us hardening of the attitude. Life goes on, and if we do not participate, life still goes on.” In the writer’s mind, apparently, participation and attitude are related. If we are aware of life all around us, we can choose to participate, and our participation will be reflected in positive ways.

Be alert and of sober mind. (1 Peter 5:8)
