Daily Affirmations

Ours is a Disease of Attitudes

Today I will make the attitudes that I take toward life and relationships MY responsibility. No one can get into my head and do my thinking for me, no one can get into my heart and do my feeling for me, no one can crawl into my skin and behave for me. If I don’t change from within, change won’t happen in my life. The attitudes I carry around in my mind affect my life. The stinkin thinking of the disease can make me look at life through a dark and distorted lens. My negative thinking about people, places and things becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. So does my positive thinking. How can I expect to change my life if I don’t change my attitudes?
 I will take a positive attitude toward my life
The basic thing is that everyone wants happiness, no one wants suffering. And happiness mainly comes from our own attitude, rather than from external factors. If your own mental attitude is correct, even if you remain in a hostile atmosphere, you feel happy.
