SCULPTOR'S ATTITUDE Author Unknown I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight. I have responsibilities to fulfill today. I am important. My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.
Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or... I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free. Today I can mourn my lack of friends or... I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships. Today I can grumble about my health or... I can rejoice that I am alive.
Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or... I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste. Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was growing up or... I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born. Today I can cry because roses have thorns or... I can celebrate that thorns have roses.
Today I can whine because I have to go to work or... I can shout for joy because I have a job to do. Today I can complain because I have to go to school or... I can eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge. Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or... I can feel honored because the Lord has provided shelter for my mind, body, and soul.
Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping. What today will be like is up to me. What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have!
Have a GREAT DAY... unless you have other plans. Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough. Be loyal. Never pretend to be something you're not. If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it. When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
Just for Today
Decide to be happy today, to live with what is yours - your family, your business, your job, your luck. If you cannot have what you like, maybe you can like what you have. Just for today, be kind, cheerful, agreeable, responsive, caring and understanding.
Be your best, dress your best, talk softly, look for the bright side of things, Praise people for what they do and do not criticize them for what they cannot do. If someone does something stupid, forgive and forget. After all, it is just for one day. Who knows, it might turn out to be a nice day.
I may never see Tomorrow. There’s no written guarantee And things that happened Yesterday Belong to History. I cannot predict the Future. I cannot change the Past. I have just the Present moment. I must treat it as my Last. I must use the Moment wisely, For it soon will Pass Away And be lost to me Forever - As part of Yesterday!
I must exercise Compassion. Help the Fallen to their Feet. Be a Friend to the Friendless. Make an Empty life Complete. The Unkind things I do Today May never be Undone. Any Friendships that I Fail to Win May Nevermore be Won. I may not have another Chance. On Bended Knee to Pray, And I thank God with Humble Heart For Giving me the Day. Presentation done by Cornelia
