Who are Your Influencers of Attitude? 

Ahhhh...I love the conversations I have with you--the people in my life--my chosen influencers of attitude! 

Some of you share stories or poems of inspiration with me, and some share images to soothe. You are the people who, in your desire to have a positive influence on those around you, send out positive messages and images to lighten the mood or give hope to the weary.

In my morning meditations--which really consists of lingering over the tasty tidbits you share so I can turn around and share them with others--I imagine our conversations to be like prayerful 'responsorials' planting positive seeds in each others lives and attitudes. 
"Peace be with you"

"And also with you"

You are my chosen influencers of attitude who help me see the world with a refreshed set of eyes. So who are yours? 

'Who do you chose to give the power to be a compelling force on your actions, behavior, and attitudes? Do you actively choose or do you leave it to chance?'

Imagining a Womb with a View

Lee is one of my influencers of attitude. The image 'communing with nature' came from Lee, with whom I share a love of art and imagination. When we get together we spend hours lingering over photo and art books firing our imagination. We enter a place where time stands still and  we get lost in a sea of pleasure and tranquility.

Sometimes I put off opening an email from Lee until I can savor what is sure to be a treat. I ready myself for what gift will be waiting for me before allowing myself to peek.

So when I opened the 'communing with nature' email titled YES! I immediately saw myself in that 'Womb with a View' enjoying life's lingering moments--providing me a moment of tranquility to start my day.

When I asked Lee if she was going to build it (she lives on a beautiful island in the North) she replied: 

"I have already built it in my heart and you are resting in it."

And that is why I give Lee the power to be one of my influencers of attitude--she imagines good things for me!

Choose Your Influencers of Attitude

Choose who your influencers of attitude will be in your life--don't leave it to chance

Don't let your outlook on life be accidentally shaped by the negative naysayers. 

Actively acknowledge those who positively influence you and let yourself be guided by their good counsel.  You deserve a good outlook on life!

Sue, you are so right! I make it a point to surround myself with people (virtual and live) who exude positivity. Sure, we realistically discuss problems, but with a positive attitude. I don't want to be dragged down by those who enjoy living in Downerville!

I'm with you, Jean. I'd rather choose to surround myself with people who exude positive perspectives. I count you among them!
