I was cleaning out old e-mails and I ran across a newsletter from my health insurance company. There was a link in the newsletter about positive attitude that intrigued me. I often find myself at the end of summer with a poor attitude, maybe due to the stress of all of the 4-H activities. By the end of August, I am in need of a new attitude. September is a time to catch up on reports and finalize grants, not a very exciting time. It is easy to get into a funk. Attitude can make a big difference. There are several helpful tips in this article to help us develop a positive attitude and improve our health.
As I am writing this I am reminded of a beloved member of our community who recently passed away. This wonderful lady had MS and many of the complications. I did not know her personally, but I was always blessed by her smile and cheerfulness as I passed her in the halls of her work place as I visited. She had many struggles, but never let them bring her down. Over the years, I saw her body give our, but her smile never did.
