A is for Attitude
Well, my first blog ever didn’t go so bad. Nothing bad happened. No tears. No blood. Nothing falling from the sky. Ok…
Since I’m taking this slowly, I thought I’d do a kind of “ABC’s” of my thoughts for my blogs. That would give me a starting point and maybe even something worth blogging about each time, as I’m still a little fuzzy on the whole “blogosphere mentality” and I’m not very good at sharing. Anything. Ever.
Therefore, today will be “A is for Attitude.” This is something I know quite a bit about, since I’ve been accused of everything from having a good attitude, a bad attitude, and/or simply a lot of ‘tude. From a flight perspective, attitude is the orientation of the craft about it’s center of mass. In a way, it’s a measurement of equilibrium. I think a person’s attitude is the same – a measurement of equilibrium. If you have a bad attitude, events seem to never go your way. But if you have a good attitude, things just seem to click into place without any real effort on your part.
So, how do we keep a good attitude? It’s just like flying a plane (or driving a car, or riding a bike): you keep an eye on it and when you see it going off course, you fix it right away with a small adjustment to keep it from deviating even more. And that small adjustment can be anything. Try it. Take a look in the mirror, make the goofiest face you can think of at yourself, and smile. If that doesn’t give your attitude a bump in the right direction, have a nice glass of wine and call me in the morning.
