My Attitude Adjustment

“People may hear your words, but they feel your attitude.” – John C. Maxwell

“Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character. ” – Albert Einstein

“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” – Winston Churchill

Does anyone else feel like they need a little attitude adjustment after reading these quotes?  I do!

Recently I came down with a bad case of grumpiness…

Overall I feel like a faith-filled, happy person; but I was really convicted the other day while reading a Twitter post of all things.  It simply said:

“If you are happy, please notify your face… Smile.”

I thought about the busyness of the past couple of weeks and all the things that have been weighing heavy on my mind and then I thought about the expression that must have been on my face recently.  Yikes.  :/

“Help. Me. Lord.”

One of the best ways I have found to change my attitude is with gratitude.

Being thankful for the gift of life and the blessings we have in God’s promises can turn a heavy heart that is weighed down with burdens into a genuinely joyful and smiling heart.

Do you occasionally struggle with a bad case of grumpiness like I do?

Maybe it’s time to remind our face just how happy God has made us and smile with a heart filled with gratitude.

Here’s a thought we can all be thankful for ~ You are God’s one of a kind, beautiful creation and He loves you…


Have a week filled with a thankful heart and lot of smiles!

Live Fulfilled!

  1. Love this! My grumpiness often happens when I am overwhelmed and have too much to do. I am usually a very happy person, but know that I do have a grumpy side! Just ask my kids! Thanks for the reminder to show gratitude every day for all things.

  2. I really love that Maxwell quote! I always tell parents that kids won’t remember the majority of what we tell them, but almost everything about how we made them feel growing up. The power of attitude and words is enormous. Thanks for your reminder today Danise! I hope your week is off to a great start and that #Fulfilled has been doing wonderfully!!

    1. I am glad you brought this up, Meg.
      I remember growing up with negative attitude in my parents. And that was a burden on my heart for sometime. It got a little difficult to break the cycle.

  3. I definitely agree that the best way to remedy a bad attitude is to stop and make yourself smile. I’ve had many times I’ve had to press the reset button on a bad day or bad week to allow myself to continue in a happy way. Great post!

    I am hosting a link up on my blog where people post anything that was happy for them in the month. You should totally sign up because this definitely applies! ♥

  4. Good Morning, Danise!

    Over the past few weeks, I’ve been praying about a way that I could encourage other bloggers who have been encouraging me. Through your ministry, posts, words, comments, and faithfulness—your life has been a blessing to mine, and I wanted others to know about you!

    So, I compiled a list of those bloggers who I’ve personally found to be the MOST INSPIRATIONAL on the web.

    You are ONE Of these bloggers – in my estimation!

    You can find the link to the list where you are featured here:

    I’ve also signed up to get your emails, and tried to follow you on your social media outlets!

    I pray that God will encourage you today through these simple acts~

  5. Oh, that quote about smiling made me smile big!:) Sometimes I do find myself caught up in the moments that steal joy. I was reminded the other day that choosing joy,choosing grace, and choosing hope are more than just a good path…they are necessary!
