Thermometer or Thermostat?

Early on I realized that I could be a thermostat instead of a thermometer:  I could SET the temperature in my home rather than just reading what someone else set it at!  Do a test:  when you see your husband/wife, be exciting, excited, "UP," fun, cute, and winsome, and watch his/her attitude lift just by being around you!  Then, if you dare, be nagging, ugly, mean, short, abrupt, faultfinding and just plain MIS, and watch his/her attitude drop (if they haven't already caught on to this secret and have decided by calculated energy that THEY are going to be the THERMOSTAT instead of the thermometer!).

Challenge:  Be the thermostat every day:  SET the temperature of your home by your attitude.  Make your days amazing:  the sum of the whole will be even GREATER than the sum of each individual part because of the synergy and energy you create!  Refuse to "read" others' attitudes and simply register the temperature someone else is setting in the room!  Work on it!!   YOU choose your attitude!  And watch how magnetic a buoyant attitude can be!
