When you hear this expression, you are most likely to associate this with being happy. Actually it’s more about being smart. Things are going to happen to you, good and bad. You are going to have to do things in your life, some whether you want to or not. So the question is, how do you want to take and or do these things? If you have to do them regardless, why not smile while you’re doing them. Arguing, whining and complaining about them, don’t make them any easier. In fact, they make them much harder. You also make them much harder on everyone around you. The plain and simple truth is, that you might as well tell yourself you want to do it. Along the way, you will find out that most of it was a lot harder to think about doing, than it was to actually do. The pity party is a one man fiesta. Doing what you have to do while feeling sorry for yourself, makes the task at hand, that much more difficult. Mentally prepare yourself, get the momentum going and then take it with a smile on your face. Once it’s done, it will feel a lot better. Most importantly, you’ll feel a lot better about the way you got it done.

Just the picture alone does it for me! How cute is that?
Great blog Alex!
I'm trying, I'm trying:) Seriously, I am working on this. I am realizing more and more that my attitude towards my job affects how I feel about the job on any given day and definitely how I DO my job. And hey, I've GOT a job! Lots of people can't say that today. Blessings Alex, keep up the good words:)
Although I am familiar with the sentiment, I find this to be particularly difficult. I will pose a question to you. Is it habit that makes us complain? Because it defies logic.
Most people can consciously surmise that a poor attitude towards a situation didn't help, and, as you stated, only made things worse. Yet most people continue to repeat these behaviors.
By the way, Alex, you are extremely insightful. I appreciate you writing this blog. Please keep up the good work! I just recently discovered DD. I hope you don't mind that I post some of your material to my Facebook account. (I make sure to credit)
I would suggest that it is a learned behavior. We learn to react to situations based on the way others taught us. Just watch a son mimic his father at a football game when there is a score or foul. The same son learn from his father how to react to lifes challenges and then through the years it becomes a habit.
i am very please that you like my blogs and more importantly that you comment. Thank you
