Good morning Mintdom,
Yesterday, I got a call from the financial people who said that I would need to pay an estimated amount of money for my colonoscopy that would go towards my deductible – ug. (Ok, ok Rick you were right about this). Anyway, the end of that story is that I decided to put off having the screening done because January 1 my deductible starts over. I have only used $84 this year. Now wait, before you start sending me e-mails and phone calls, I rescheduled the procedure for January 7! I just wanted to add to my deductible at the beginning of the year in case I have to have anything else done next year. I must confess, all this started my mood and my attitude on a downward spiral. Then we had issues with our technology. The phone was ringing off the hook and I could feel a headache coming on. I got up from my desk – stretched – took some cleansing breaths – opened a yogurt, and started my day over. The funny thing is that within minutes, I received a much-coveted invitation to try Google wave, and my parents agreed to come to lunch at my office!
“The greatest discovery of my generation is that man can alter his life simply by altering his attitude of mind.” –William James
I am telling you here, that even though I still have to pay a bunch of money, and the phones were still ringing off the hook, *I* felt better. What a difference an attitude makes!
AffirMINTion: I choose to have a good attitude even during life’s challenges.
Before closing, I just have to say congratulations to my friend and co-worker, Ann Beck – who just had her first grandchild. ‘Oma and Opa Beck’ drove down to Fort Bragg, yesterday to be with the newest member of their family (and to bring presents!)
Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.
Life is good!
