ATTITUDE DETERMINES ALTITUDE

WHAT ABOUT TODAY?

I woke up early today,excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight.
I have resposibilities to fulfill today.

nest

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy
or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

nest

Today I can grumble about my health
or I can rejoice that I am alive.

nest

Today I can cry because roses have thorns
or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

nest

Today I can mourn my lack of friends
or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

nest

Today I can whine because I have to go to work
or I can shout for joy because I have a job.

nest

Today stretches ahead of me,waiting to be shaped.
And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

nest

What today will be like is up to me.
I get to choose what kind of day I will have.

nest

Have a Great Day......Unless you have other plans

I got this poem above from one of my penfriends and made this page.

~Why Worry About Tomorrow~

Why worry about tomorrow
And the rising of the sun,
Or anguish over past mistakes
That cannot be undone?

Why waste life's precious moments
On things that bruise the heart
When today is ours to fashion
Into a work of art?

Today comes but once, my friend,
It never can return -
So use it wisely while you can,
There's a lesson you may learn.

Let history record the past
And tomorrow come what may.
Be content to do your best
With what you have today!

~Clay Harrison~
