Love Your Life

(270) I took this photo of a sidewalk facing the centuries old Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Is it merely graffiti or a timeless message from the universe, a gentle reminder to count our blessings and make the most of each day?
"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money- than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company...a church...a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday 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. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you"...Charles R. Swindoll

The saying of Mr. Swindoll is right! I always heard from my old father. The letters in the wall, is very dramatic.
