    Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.

    I joined the SP Class team and signed on as the leader-which I see you did this past summer. So I've been posting there and sending out goodies to see who was still active! Well, guess what, after looking through all the threads, I joined the week earlier so re-joined the wrong class!
    emoticon So I'm going to drop out of that one and get back to the one I started in 3 years later! But I'll keep posting on your page! Thanks for the friend add!!

    This was copied from one of my Spark People Pal's blog. SPARKL3SUSAN posted it about how unhealthy venting and complaining are from a website...weorganizeu.com/shocking-consequ
    ences-complaining-grumbling-killing. Thought it was a great goal for the upcoming week and wanted to share it with you. If it doesn't post, just go to the website weorganizeu.com!

    Strategies to Cut the Complaining Habit

    Track how often you complain. Awareness is the first step towards change.
    If you catch yourself whining, add the word ‘but’ and find something positive about the situation. For example, “There is so much traffic, but I’m grateful I’m driving a comfortable car and listening to my favorite tunes”.
    If you notice you are saying “I have to…” or “I should…” change it to “I get to…” You’ll feel more empowered and positive.
    Complaining without moving towards a solution can make us feel victimized and powerless. Make a direct request for action to resolve the problem. For example, “Its cold in here, so could you please turn up the heat”.
    Journal about what’s bothering you so you can gain a better understanding and come up with possible solutions.
    Instead of complaining about a bad experience, ask what the lesson is and use it as an opportunity to grow.
    Spend more time with people who uplift you and less time with chronic complainers – because complaining is contagious.

    Change doesn’t happen overnight, but the less you complain, the more you’ll find to appreciate and be grateful for – and the happier and more peaceful you will feel.

    “That perfect tranquility of life,
    which is nowhere to be found but in retreat,
    a faithful friend emoticon
    and a good library.” emoticon
