We have complete control over our own attitude. We are the ones who decide how we feel, how we look at things, how we react. (Catherine Pulsifer, author)

There are few things in life that we can actually control. We can’t do much about the weather, taxes, or circumstances, for example. But, as Pulsifer reminds us, there is one very important element in our lives that we do control—our attitude. We have to learn how to take control of our attitudes in order to live peacefully with ourselves and others.

Sympathize with each other. Love each other as brothers and sisters. Be tenderhearted, and keep a humble attitude (1 Peter 3:8).
