ATTITUDE

abreve

The year has started and mine in gear 12 or so I think.

I am writing; it is an outlet to my feelings:

ATTITUDE:

I have an urge as I begin the year to find out what this word means;

Wiki kinda helps me out at this :

“”An attitude is a hypothetical construct that represents an individual’s degree of like or dislike for something. Attitudes are generally positive or negative views of a person, place, thing, or event— this is often referred to as the attitude object. People can also be conflicted or ambivalent toward an object, meaning that they simultaneously possess both positive and negative attitudes toward the item in question.””

Huh: not quite what I was hoping for: Like seriously…..
Let me try something else;
Free online dictionary comes with complete phonetic transcriptions: Whoooa and it is a lot to take in.

 (t-td, -tyd)

n.

1. A position of the body or manner of carrying oneself: stood in a graceful attitude. See Synonyms at posture.
2.

a. A state of mind or a feeling; disposition: had a positive attitude about work.
b. An arrogant or hostile state of mind or disposition.
3. The orientation of an aircraft’s axes relative to a reference line or plane, such as the horizon.
4. The orientation of a spacecraft relative to its direction of motion.
5. A position similar to an arabesque in which a ballet dancer stands on one leg with the other raised either in front or in back and bent at the knee.

Why am I going through all this trouble; you may ask:

Well: Someone just told me that I had a rotten attitude. Judging from where that came from, what we were talking about and or who they are to me; I just assumed that they were having a really BAD day; or is it a not so good start to 2012.
And I am not going to get into the semantics of : if the part that is rotten is: my state of mind or rather the disposition; It could even be the orientation of my aircraft’s axes; I mean. Why not ?

And as I was contemplating my attitude; someone threw this at me:

“If one person calls you a donkey, ignore him. If two people call you a donkey, look in the mirror. If three people call you a donkey, buy yourself a saddle.” And I am yet to find reason to go find the price of a mirror!

It is a troubled world that we live in. It is an upside down terrain that we have to strive to work with.
New years do not make it even easier, they come with greater responsibility and call for maturity and a manifestation of the growth accquired through out the years! We are bombarded with a rush to get more , look better, work harder and smart : Have something to show for our age and accomplishments. And it is alot of work.

My prayer is that we will have strength is who we are and whose we are. That, the world and haters will never be able to take away from us!.And so the new year is here. For you it may not be ‘the’ new year ; it could be ‘a’ new year! Just one of those that come and go.
But how about we let go of all our weird and not so working attitudes, shade off whatever buggage we are carrying and look to make it work: Makes sense huh?
I think it does I mean I am more scared even as this starts, I am told I am the typical micro manager : meaning I want everything my way;

So here is to a great year: Blessings Galore all through ( Let us make it work)

Blessings!
