Choosing My Attitude

This past weekend I was required to attend an event for work that I wasn’t entirely stoked about attending. I was upset that it would cause me to miss church on Sunday, it didn’t seem interesting to me, and I knew it would be a ton of face time. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I was enjoying myself at the end of the three days; I met some interesting and inspirational people, had some good conversations, ate good food, and stayed in a nice hotel. I also learned an important lesson.

No matter the circumstances, I choose my attitude.

For the first few hours of the event, I allowed my frustration with having to be there to cloud my vision. I found myself complaining to those around me rather than enjoying their presence. While I can’t change the past, I can remember this lesson in the future.
