Attitude is and always will be a choice. It seems almost cliche to say that and it’s slightly overused but it is the truth.

The trouble is sometimes we become so wrapped up in the thoughts in our heads and the ideas around how a situation should be or shouldn’t be that our attitude about things can seem out of our control. We become slightly unconscious and as a result we become reactive to a situation or reactive to the thoughts in our heads.

All it takes to turn this around is the awareness to observe your own thoughts at any given moment. When you can observe thought there is a separation between you and that thought which allows you to regain control over any reaction that may come from that thought.

Attitude is basically just an extension of what’s going on inside our heads so if you are simply an observer of your thoughts you can make the choice about the attitude that comes from it.
