Making a change!

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

It was a hard day mentally yesterday - for a lot of people. Everywhere I went yesterday it seemed I was running in to people that were upset, mad, annoyed and complaining. Before the end of the day- I had found I had turned in to one of them. This morning I've heard the complaints starting already- so as I sat down to change my status here on SparkPeople, I made a decision... I'm going to try to stop complaining. That's right- no whines, complaints, or rants... well, ok I'm Irish and German- so perhaps I'll just make a real effort every day to pay attention to my attitiude and when I find myself in a "Negative Nelly" mood I'll try to snap out of it. There's going to be days when the garbage is going to be there to deal with- now it's just a matter of what my response to it is... after all- adding my complaints to it won't make it any better- just worse.
Wish me luck ~grin~

Member Comments About This Blog Post:

    How about trying this, something I've been doing for a few weeks now that is helping. For every negative comment you make, you must make three positive ones. It's harder than it seems, but it really keeps my mouth from taking off and my mind polluted with junk! I am finding that I'm focusing more on the positive, want to give others a more positive me, and making the not-so-friendly days a little better! emoticon

    I agree, if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem!!

    The fact that you are aware of controlling your response is half the battle. Be successful is like practising one's religion- you do your best and try to overcome the innate human nature
