Set your mind that no matter what is going on in your life, you will have a good attitude.
People with my kind of personality have to make attitude adjustments all day long! Maybe that’s why I like Joyce Meyer so much; her teachings are for me! Last weekend was one of those times, again, when I planned it perfectly and then…well, life happened.
We packed our suitcase and headed for Scottsdale to enjoy a few days away. My husband and I always like getting out of town together even if it’s for business. On the drive out, I mentioned that the resort got as many bad reviews as good. He muttered not to pay attention to that and draw our own conclusions. Once there, no way would the front desk release our room to us before the appointed check-in time. So we didn’t get unpacked and a nap before the first meeting, but something even better happened as we adjusted our attitude and sat by the fireplace in the pretty lobby with Wifi. We were entertained when Eddie Money arrived and caused a big raucous. He’s the singer of that Geico commercial that grips me every time, “I’ve got two tickets to paradise, whoa, whoa.”
A couple we’re good friends with arrived early and couldn’t have their room either. We four decided to go for coffee and ended up at the Cheesecake Factory, my favorite. I was blessed not only by the fun conversation but with fellowship in the Lord and cheesecake. He really does alter things around when we decide to plan wisely, but trust Him for the outcome!
I didn’t agree with the online bad reviews of the place. We were treated with kindness by every staff member, our food was great; the suites were fantastic. Perhaps the people who wrote those negative reviews just need an attitude adjustment!
