No reason to complain - Removed my ranting Blog

Sunday, February 16, 2014

An hour or so ago I posted a ranting blog about all the money we had lost on a poor choice of car. Just now I deleted it. If the main thing I have to be complaining about is that, then I have no right to complain. I have a fantastic life with people who love me for who I am. I have achieved things that I never thought possible and have the determination and will to hopefully achieve even more. I have my health, and even more importantly my loved ones have their health. I refuse to be the type of person who fails to see how lucky they are. I want to be the type of person who appreciates it.

Have a great week every one!

    Chin up, stay true to yourself, you write, so this is your outlet when things don't go according to plan, but like you said, the rest of your life is great.

    You have each other, you learned a lesson about car issues in a foreign land. It is called growth, and that is a great thing.

    You are having life lessons because you are living and doing! Most people are afraid to go outside their door.

    So stay fearless, and full of that love for life, and keep on doing what you do best!

    I am cheering for you!

    It was good you vented through writing, it gave you an opportunity to realize there is a better blog to write. But it's all good. You are only human.

    BTDT, car-wise - also BTDT, vent-wise........before I "killed off" my previous Spark persona I removed a significant number of less than positive postings, then,despite that effort, decided that it was still not enough........I then deleted the original account and took some time away from Spark before rejoining.............]

    I've still had a few "vent-type" moments.........my latest pet peeve involves uncompassionnate "suck it up and deal" comments - keep telling that to those suffering this winter and there could be a world of *serious* hurt provided to the commenter!,

    Bottom-line is this: I have found that self-awareness is key to keeping poor behavior in check.......now if I could only apply that knowledge to how I eat!

    Here's to a wonderful day and week ahead!
