You’ve probably heard of having an “attitude of gratitude.” Well, I’m all for that. Noticing what's going on around and within us and then expressing gratitude feels good. We’re more likely to help others, have more physical energy, and worry less. Express your thanks to whomever or whatever you want; I believe that's less important than the decision to look for something to be grateful for.
I started playing around with the phrase "attitude of gratitude" and came up with a bunch of other kinds of “-itudes.” Just for fun, consider the following:
Gladitude – making happiness a habit
Raditude – being far out, man!
Gonaditude – deciding to make a baby
Baditude – Whoa! Get outa the way!
Maditude – ticked off all the time -- Grrrr......
Saditude – Even when there’s nothing wrong, I feel blue.
Daditude – Father knows best. OR Your daddy loves you. You pick.
Faditude – Cool...at least until it goes out of style
Haditude – stuck in the past
Caditude – what a jerk
Paditude – home sweet home
Plaiditude – Gotta love those Scottish prints.
Straditude – There's only one violin worth playing.
Taditude – always chopping life into tiny little bits
Aditude – what you need to make it in an ad agency
Additude – avoids subtraction whenever possible
