One Complaint at a Time
Saturday, December 03, 2011
Three days ago, I made a commitment not to complain. It's a task suggested by Unity minister Edwene Gaines. The idea is to transcend your way of viewing the world. No complaints for 21 days. If you blow it, you gently forgive yourself...and start over from day one.
Instead of a complaint, you're to say, "God, that's great! I decided to say, "God is great!" That way, I'm praising rather than whining.
Start 1: I'm all over this! Piece of cake! Ha! I was fine all day, until the drive home from work. Why did those other drivers have to be out there? Rats!
Start 2: I forgot not to complain that my husband thinks that every flat surface is a coat hanger. I'll do better with my fresh 21 days.
Start 3: I was moaning about something at work before my brain even had a chance to register what was coming out of my mouth. AARRGGHHH!
I can do this. I will do this. All I need is a fresh roll of duct tape.
