Quotes to Live By: Day 17 November Writing Challenge

Today's Prompt: A Quote You Try To Live By 

This was really hard. I'm one of those people that collect quotes (like Mary Jane from Being Mary Jane). I am truly inspired by Maya Angelou. When I read I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, it changed me. Her words and her life story- moves, motivates and even chastises me. There are several of her quotes that resonate in my soul.  One of my favorites is...

"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude." 

This quotes sums up my personality really well. I feel like it is easy to complain about things but it's harder to try to change it. I'm the person who gets frustrated when all people do is sit around and complain. I'm all for a venting session but when that's all someone wants to do (all the time), my mind starts looking for action or a change in my attitude. 

Ain't this the TRUTH??? Be nice to each other.
