Change Your Mind

Mama’s Losin’ It

I’ve chosen to write about a song of significance today. I’m going to keep this short and sweet-which is very unlike me.

Song: Change your mind by Sister Hazel.

“Do you ever think there might be another way to just feel better, to just feel better about today?….If you want to be somebody else, if your tired of fighting battles with yourself. If you want to be somebody else, change your mind.”

The power of choice. We all have a choice. Every moment of every day, we have a choice. See the good or the bad. Be positive or be negative. Take a risk or play it safe. Be mediocre or be outstanding. We can’t control most aspects of life. We certainly can’t control others. The only thing we have 100% control over is our attitude.

If your attitude stinks – change it. Simple as that.

On a side note, for reasons that I’ll discuss in an upcoming post, I really needed this reminder today. My attitude hasn’t exactly been all sunshine and roses lately. I need to change my mind sometimes too.

    Such a good reminder. I needed that this morning.

    Mmm… Yup. I’m feeling that. Didn’t exactly have a good day yesterday, headache all day. Glad I “changed my mind” before I went to bed, so today is better.

    Cool song and thoughtful words. I posted on a song that changed my mood, too. But it was a much different kind of song! http://www.leadingmama.com/2011/03/a-song-with-significance.html

    I love this advice because lately I have been seriously having to work on having a positive attitude. Things have been a little overwhelming and I have noticed my attitude slowly getting down so I work to change it. We do have full control over our attitude and it is powerful.

    I totally agree with this! I wrote a post about how to be happier and the first thing I said was make the CHOICE to be happy. So important. Visiting from Mama Kat’s

    Absolutely agree. Life is about choices! I’ve been writing a lo about this as well and I think it helps to say it out loud (with witnesses) so that we actually do pay more attention to our attitude and the energy we are putting out. Can neve have enough reminders!
