I wish to do just the opposite of complaining. I do not wish to discourage others. My goal would be to send praise, thanks, cheer and confidence to all around me. This needs to be my goal every day! No gossiping, no whining, no negative words today.
Perfect timing for me as I've been focusing on keeping my complaints to myself, particularly about my pain or circumstances. It does the listener no good and I certainly don't benefit from rehashing. I have a quote on my vision board from a local motivational speaker. "If it is to be, it's up to me." It's written on a colored index card and underneath I've penciled in "Whining and complaining only uses up oxygen." 74 days ago
