Hell of a Guy

Attitude and Life…


The Nancy and I are attending a conference at Virginia Tech this week. While I was out exploring the campus here that I had not been on since the late 1990s, Nancy attended a session with a speaker whose theme was “Attitude.” I have some thoughts on this, even though I did not hear the guy speak. The Nancy told me he offered that one’s attitude greatly affects others who happen to be nearby. I wholeheartedly agree.

How many times have all of us been in the presence of someone with a crappy attitude that just made us miserable, brought a bad vibe to group? If I asked for a show of hands in a crowded room, I bet there would be 100% participation. People affect people. Similarly, if you are with someone who is cheerful and happy the overall mood in the room is cheerful and happy. Human nature, I suppose but nonetheless true.

I have always, well perhaps not always, but certainly for a very long time, known I am 100% in charge of my attitude. 100%! I can choose to be happy, if even things don’t go my way, or I can choose to be a dick and drag everyone’s attitude to my level.

Now, most of the time…99.9% of it, I am happy as hell, but I have to laugh, which I often do, when I am in the car alone as I talk to myself about the other drivers on the road with me. It works this way, Mr. 100% in Charge of Attitude, if they are driving faster than I they are assholes; however, if slower than I they are idiots. These people should go park their vehicles and toss the keys in the garbage.

I must admit today my attitude is high, 100%, and because I will it, it will remain at that level.

And that is all I have to say about that…
