Choosing Your Attitude

Picking up litter used to make my dad angry. Then he realized his anger did no good and might even be doing him some harm. So he dropped his anger and picked up the trash.

Attitude Adjustment

Each of us is in charge of our own attitude. Otherwise we are victims of our circumstances and emotions.

God gave us the ability to: 1) monitor our thinking, 2) evaluate our thoughts, and 3) change our mindset—whenever we choose. With God’s help, and practice, we can improve (Philippians 4:8).

A Plan in Place

What if we decide in advance that the next time we encounter a rude driver, we will keep calm? No angry looks, provoking comments, or obscene gestures. We just keep driving.
