Writer's Workshop VI

It's time again for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop! You can find this week's prompts here.

This time I chose No.2: one of my life mottos:

>> If you cannot change somewhat, change your attitude towards it! <<

I hope my translation makes sense... This is the original quote in German:
>> Wenn Du etwas nicht ändern kannst, ändere Deine Einstellung dazu! <<

I love this sentence. It's so true and there's so much in it even if it's hard to put it into action.
This will probably be a short post but I think this motto speaks for itself...
I cannot remember where I read this quote and who said it but well I keep it alive. And it helped me in many situations since I discovered it.
At work, with men and friendships - everywhere!

So I hope you like it, too :o)

Have a nice day!


  1. Attitude is everything in life! I used to be the person that always had a negative attitude about things, but I was determined to change my outlook and start looking for the positives! Great quote!

  2. That is a truly AWESOME phrase! I LOVE IT!!!!

  3. That is awesome! and so true! It's all about the attitude!

  4. That's a really great quote! I love that you put the German on here too! Wonderful!

    Visiting from Mamma Kat's!

  5. Stopping by from Mamma Kat's…

    Not quite sure what the somewhat means, but the way I interpret what you are saying is: "If you can't change something, change your attitude towards it"

    So often we have a strong opinion about something and want to change it so that it fits our rational. Since we can only change ourselves— the best thing would be to change how you look at it.

  6. I do like it! So often I roll my eyes at Pat for his bad attitude...the experience is so much more enjoyable for everyone when EVERYONE is trying to be positive about it.

  7. Oooh, I love the original German quote! So neat!


I would love to hear from you!
Don't be shy, tell me what's on your mind :-)
