Attitude is everything

I think it’s fair to say that I can move mountains today!

Doesn’t matter about their size

I can find a way!

Because I’m feeling good today!

Though I might be a pint… and you a brute.

Watch out…. because I can still dig up your root!

I’m feeling feisty yes indeed

and I’ll unstack your house and foreclose your deed!

But if it’s a friend that I’d be needing…

then all my heart and kindness I’ll be seeding

Never once shall I bring badness in

unless it’s just to share with my new-found friend.

Because together we can move mountains.

If it is to my creator I speak

I’ll be on my knee’s humble and meek.

Thankful for the very breath I breathe

Thankful for the very life I lead.

Attitude is everything.

    of course we can move mountains, cuz i mean if you enclose it in a Gaussian surface we can…..then it’s just a particle… you can clearly see in this diagram…… and all we need to do is alter the mountains magnetic structure……. and we can move it 7 cm to the left.


    nah jk but seriously good poem =]

      Positive thought is a powerful force but the correct attitude toward every situation is imperative for success. Sometimes it must be an openness to learn,sometimes shear and utter determination,and sometimes a combination of many things but positivity means a lot even if you’re gonna positively kick someone’s butt! at least you’ll go at it with the right attitude! Thank you for stopping by!

    Positive attitude brings happiness to us and to friends.
    Happiness does not occur to us, it has to be created.
    The thought above is a nice step towards that.
    I specially liked ‘Kicking butt with positive thought’

    Have a nice day.
    Peace be yours

    I’ve tried to write a poem in this vein for such a long time but can never find the right combination of words. Thank you for expressing such positivity without having it sound clichΓ© or contrived. ^_^

    As soon as I make my own list of awesome authors you’ll be slapped on it first.

      Speak what your heart says about it first my friend before anything else…I have no doubt that you have something valuable to say about attitude. Then write it down. I will be reading…

    Brilliantly said! You’re very right in saying that attitude is everything, it can completely change our outlook on life and circumstances. Having a good attitude is very important. Great poem!

      And…it can change your outlook in the blink of an I if you know how to set your mind set. It is really an amazing blessing for us to use.

    I enjoyed this man!
    It’s sometimes hard to find the right attitude though.
    I’d like to move a mountain on to the head of some of the kids I teach – that would be a real attitude check!

    Shot for your always refreshing words!
    Peace to you and yours,

      Little boogers can be smart mouthed at times…but I find passive aggressive behavior helps me keep my sanity when I actually have to deal with those who would subdue me. Remember that they have to do what you say to pass and if they don’t do what you say… then they wont pass. Care …but know that you can’t force a square peg through a round hole. It is up to them to try to take off their corners to fit into your plan. I can tell that you you actually care though because it wouldn’t bother you if they had a bad attitude if you didn’t. Have a good day man…and don’t let them make you scratch the top of your head bald…it just ain’t right! πŸ™‚
