attitude: happy.

the remarkable thing we have is a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.  we cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will 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.

and we are the dreamer of dreams,
wandering by lone sea-breakers,
and sitting by desolate streams;

on whom the pale moon gleams:
yet we are the movers and shakers
of the world forever, it seems.
{william edgar o'shaughnessy}
