Just wanted to share one of my favourite quotes today, those of you who really know me, know that I pride myself on positive reinforcement and positive thinking. Having worked in the field of mental health illnesses I learned early on the importance of talk therapy and how crucial happy thoughts are in living a healthy life. Similarly, surrounding yourself with positive people can change you and your outlook on life.
"The longer I live the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.
It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill.
It will make or break a company . . . a church . . . a home.
The remarkable thing is, we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past. . . . We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. . . . We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.
And so it is with you . . . we are in charge of our Attitudes.”

Clearly I was feeling myself in this photo shoot lol, shot at Treasure Beach on the South Coast of Jamaica. My cousin Sophia Samantha has been a real blessing, learning how to use my camera in little time and capturing some pretty flattering angles. Thanks Soph! :)
Why I started with this poem today? just a few little set backs going on in my life currently, but through this poem I'm reminded that no matter what we're going through, our attitude makes a huge difference.
