Don't Do It!!!
Just for ONE day do not complain about anything. Don't murmur. Don't whine or honk about anything. Don't let a complaining word escape your lips. Don't say things like I wish I had a.......if only.........if we were only..........well if.........
Don't say anything negative about your situation or circumstances. So what if you don't get kitchen canisters that go perfectly with your new paint?
Don't report all of your aches and pains. Don't tell anybody about your stopped up nose or stubbed toe. Or your flat tire or your weeds.
If your eggs were cold, keep it to yourself. If your shoes are tight, smile anyway.
If you have a cold be thankful you don't have the flu.
If your kids are too loud, be thankful you have kids. If your van won't start, be thankful you HAVE a van. If you didn't get what you wanted for lunch, think about what MOST of the world had for lunch.
I am amazed at myself.........it is just ***amazing*** how much I complain, how negative I am and how much I find to whine about.
You'd think I was in a third world country, blind, poor as a church mouse, no father...mother....sister.......friends.......VAN or anything.
What about YOU?
Do you find yourself talking about your medicines and expensive car parts more than you do the breeze and the grapes you got on sale?
What a complaing lot we are.
I hear it and I take part in it.
We would all be much happier if we didn't FIRST think of all the negative things THEN voice them.
Can't we find something better to do than whine, murmur, complain, pout, frown and just be pitiful?
