What’s wrong with your attitude?

The past few weeks, my wife and I have been attending a program series at our church. Our discussions last week jogged memories of a certain quote about “attitude.” The quote came in handy years ago, and I wrote it down but lost track of that note in recent years. A couple of years ago, I tried but failed to find it on the Internet.

After our program discussion, I tried again and found it among a raft of quotes at this website.

Here’s the one I was looking for, and it turns out it came from Charles R. Swindoll, a Christian pastor and author.

“We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.”

These seem like wise words to live by, don’t they?
