How does one become an adult?
Yes, I understand that there are certain rare diseases that a baby can be born with that causes them to grow old very quickly. But, in an "ordinary" situation, how does one develop into an adult?
Does a child grow into an adult in a week? A month? A year? Five years? Ten years?
I also understand that, in different cultures, children are considered "adults" at different ages. But, even with that being true, it doesn't happen overnight.
One day at a time, right? And, for most parents, those days seem to speed up as time goes by and, before they know it, their child is an adult with a child of their own.
Oh, believe me, I know. I have three sons that are all adults and two of them are married and, on top of that, our oldest has two children of his own.
We understand the concept of how things happen gradually just as is true in a child's education. Yes, again I understand that there are some situations where a child "genius" moves ahead in his schooling. However, a child is never born and then receives his High School diploma the next week.
So, again, we all understand the idea of a process that involves time and progression.
So it is with the wording found on the graphic above. Every life is made up of years, which are made up of months, which are made up of days, which are made up of hours, minutes and seconds.
So, getting down to it, our life is made up of TODAY - one day at a time. And, what we do with TODAY (the seconds, minutes and hours that make today what it is) matters.
And, what we do TODAY is greatly dependent upon our ATTITUDE. That's right, our attitude.
Do you want to have a better day? Develop a better attitude.
Do you want to have a better month? Year? Life? Same answer...develop a better attitude.
Allow that "great attitude" to transform your seconds, minutes, hours and days which, in turn, will transform your weeks, months, years and - yes - THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
Attitude. How's yours?
Believe it or not (it's your choice, right?) our attitude really IS that important and impactful.
Until next time, whatever you do, always be sure to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
