I am not perfect. I sometimes go down the negative path, but reframing can shift me into a new way of thinking that offers an alternate meaning to any situation! -DR

There is a well-known saying that goes by the words "Your attitude controls your life." This statement has been around for millennia

If you are looking for ways to change your outlook, many things can help this process. It's important what we think and what our friends' and family members' attitudes are. Surrounding ourselves with bad attitudes during these challenging times can have an effect on our moods as well. Of course, it's up to us how we react to other people when they come across us negatively or say something negative, and what we say about ourselves may affect whether or not those thoughts turn into reality over time.

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.

-- Maya Angelou

You can't change the world, but you can always start by changing yourself.

Change doesn't happen overnight. Of course, there will be short-term successes when we make an effort with our mindset - but generally speaking, long-term progress comes from nurturing what's inside of us first and continually spreading positivity outwardly.
