Change Your Mind

"If you don't like something change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain."
Maya Angelou
I love this quote and this picture. 
Doesn't the picture just make you giggle?
Yesterday at work someone started complaining about almost everything. 
They complained about things that I have no control over changing. 
It made me think of this quote.
Maybe all these things are awful because this person has a negative attitude towards everything. 
I'm trying to be a more positive person and surround myself with more positive people.
Some days it's hard. 

P.S. Interested in guest blogging? Send me an e-mail at liveinimagination@gmail.com

I know exactly what you mean! I work in such a negative, toxic environment, sometimes I need to just get out and call one of my friends or get some ice cream to put a smile on my face because it's overkill!

My husband and I are fighting because he has had the worst attitude lately. Every time I remind him that he can control his attitude, he just gets mad.

So I have been thinking of thise quote a lot lately.

I hate complainers. I mean,I can be whiny and complain on occassion but not all the time and not about things that are within my realm of control ya know?

That's a great quote for me, too.

I got real shitty with Walgreens today due to something that was in no one's control.

Maya and I need to pow-wow so I can calm the flip down.
