The Man on The Bus.

I travelled to Edinburgh yesterday a busy bus and after a pleasant evening with my daughter travelled home on an even busier bus. I had a few smiles at the actions of some of the passengers and the little bits of things I overheard.

There was a man got on the bus going to Edinburgh at the same stop as I got on. He was busy chatting on his phone the whole time as he boarded the bus. He was just in front of me still chatting on his phone. I heard him abruptly say to the driver destination. Yes, that was all he had time to say, destination. He sat down in the seat opposite where I was sitting and continued his phone call. 

The bus left the bust station and headed out onto the road. His conversation continued. The bus headed up towards the Forth Road Bridge and then his tome changed completely. I heard him say in a loud voice that he had got on the bus going in the opposite direction from the one he was wanting to take.  He had to cross the bridge and await the first stop the bus would make to get off. He was not a happy person at all. Had he taken time to speak to the driver he would have been told he was on the right bus but going the wrong way. 

It made me think and so I give you this little tester this morning. 

The question I am asking you is simple, "What Am I?"

I am seldom considered, though I do more to influence everything about you than virtually any one thing in your life.  
I often control the time you get up in the morning, the time you go to sleep, what you eat and drink and the very thought that runs through your head.  
I can make you either happy or sad, loving or hateful, cheerful or remorseful, congenial or spiteful and in doing so, control the very capacity that you have for success.

No, you don’t often think of me instead you BLAME the problem I create on the shortcoming of others, or the state of the economy, or your family or a million other reasons.  
Often at times unable to find anyone else to BLAME you look for shortcomings within yourself on which to lay the BLAME.

When my impact on your life fully is considered in your every thought and action, when you are mindful of my awesome power, when you nurture and groom me for positive use in your life, I can become more contagious than the most prolific disease ever witnessed by man.
My influence will spread to every person you come in contact with.

Groomed and nurtured in a positive manner there will be no person or obstacle that can stand in the way of my success or fail to be impacted for the better. 

What Am I?  "I Am Your Attitude."  With the right attitude we can make the journey of life so much easier and so much more enjoyable. 
Have a good day.
