"If you don't brush your teeth, your mouth stinks, and if you don't check your attitude, your attitude stinks."Sometimes we just need a little reminder that we choose our own adventure in this life, so we might as well choose to enjoy it.
Last night I was exposed to some of the worst attitude I've heard in a while. I overheard a woman talking about running, especially 5k races.
"If it's a race you can't walk," she said. "If you can't run the whole thing you just shouldn't do it."
This caught my attention because I have run/walked a number of 5ks and I know many, many people who have done the same.
|Gadget has a great attitude towards alternating walking and |
running: he says yes, please.
I could delve into her motivation- is she insecure about her own abilities and so wanting to cut down the aspirations of others?- but I don't know this woman from Eve.
I think the take home lesson here is don't make rules for others. Live your life. Check your attitude. You do you, and let others do the same.
