in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, by Jimmy Buffet
was out for a walk listening to my ipod, enjoying
the lyrics to this Jimmy Buffet song. I have never
been a person to obsess about the past, but rather
I enjoy looking forward to seizing each day because
“ There’s just too much to see waiting
in front of me.” Certainly, I realize that
the C word has definitely made the present and future
more palatable than my journey through cancer treatments.
My attitude is my choice, and I prefer not to dwell
on what I cannot change. If you look at attitude
as a preference, it puts a different spin on how
you look at a glass of water. For me, being half
full defines how I think, rather than half empty.
“Nothing remains quite the same” so
lamenting about what used to be wastes my energy.
Embracing change is just one more asset I have in
winning at life.
