Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.
And so ends our two weeks of self isolation, only to be followed by two more. Looking back it hasn’t been so bad. I heard an old man saying one time that “to look ahead, forty years is a very long long stint, but believe me when I tell you that it’s nothing when its spent”. I think we can say the same but at a much lower scale about the past two weeks. Looking back I can’t help wondering where did they go? What have I got to show for it. A lot of what we do in life, is determined by the way we handle it. It’s really down to our attitude. A long time ago I came across the following piece never read it more than once but put it into my scrapbook to be taken out and read again “When I’d Have Time”Now I have weeks of time and if I share with you, you have weeks of time to read it. I quote. “The longer I live the more I realise the impact of Attitude on Life. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes,than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past, we cannot change the fact that other people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one thing we have and that’s our Attitude. The writer is convinced that life is ten percent what happens to us and ninety percent how we react to it .We are all in charge of our own Attitudes’. Unquote. Sound advice.
