Having a good attitude makes living simply—or living at all—that much
easier. When we choose to do something and have a good attitude in the
process it’s easier to persevere through any challenges that arise.
Why do you want to live simply? Are you excited about the prospect of
learning to say no, adding balance to your life, finding and preserving some
empty space on your calendar? Choosing to live simply can be an exciting
adventure or a journey you’d rather not take—it’s all in your attitude.
So as you get up each morning, take some time to think about your
attitude for the day. Will it be good or bad? Will you choose to complain
about what you don’t have, or to be grateful for the gifts God has given you?
Make up your mind as the day begins. The choice is up to you.
“This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm
