Attitude Is Everything!

When you cut away all the junk – every situation is a choice

You choose how you react to situations

You choose how people will affect your mood

You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood

It’s your choice how you live your life

I have learned that every day you have the choice
to either enjoy your life or to hate it

The only thing that is truly yours —

That no one can control or take from you —

Is your Attitude

So if you can take care of that,

Everything else in life becomes much easier

Today I choose an attitude of deep appreciation for every situation and person in my life.

I started the Inconvenient Woman Blog in 2007, and am the product of a long line of inconvenient women. The matriarchal line is French-Canadian, Roman Catholic, with a very feisty Irish great-grandmother thrown in for sheer bloody mindedness. I am a research analyst and author who has made her living studying technical data, and developing articles, training materials, books and web content. Tracking through statistical data, and oblique cross-references to find the relevant connections that identifies a problem, or explains a path of action, is my passion. I love clearly delineating the magic questions of knowledge: Who, What, Why, When, Where and for How Much, Paid to Whom. My life lessons: listen carefully, question with boldness, and personally verify the answers. I look at America through the appreciative eyes of an immigrant, and an amateur historian; the popular and political culture is a ceaseless fascination. I have no impressive initials after my name. I’m merely an observer and a chronicler, an inconvenient woman who asks questions, and sometimes encourages others to look at things differently.
