Need Not Complain

I just read on Dr. Joe Vitale's blog about a new campaign that appeals to me greatly. It's called "A Complaint-Free World" and you can read about it here.

The mission is to rid the world of complaining. Does that fit with my concept of Positive Gossip, or what? They are giving out free purple bracelets to wear for 21 days. The idea is to remind yourself not to SPEAK a complaint (you can complain all you like inside your head). Wear the bracelet on one wrist. If you hear yourself complaining, you move it to the other wrist. (There are more rules details on the website.) If you can make it 21 days without speaking a complaint, you'll have changed your habits to a more positive manner of speaking.

And that, my friends, can be life-altering. Thoughts become things, right? The words we speak send out vibrations into the air that create the situations we encounter, right? What we complain about we often get more of. So why not take the challenge?

I'm game. I'll try it. I ordered my bracelets—one for me, two for whomever I encounter that might want to try.

You know, I'm thinking I really need to turn this into something other than a knitblog because my knitting content... not that I'm complaining or anything... ;-)

Did you listen to Sixx A.M. "Life is Beautiful" yet?

I don't know what I'd talk about... People are giving me such good material for complaining about these days.

But, you're right. A more positive attitude might help matters considerably. I'll probably start tomorrow, though. I'm sorta grumpy today.

I agree with Annie, there's so much material out there to work with. Politics alone. OY!

But you're right and as you know, I did make major changes to adjust my attitude and it's working very well.

And I don't care what you say, if our president comes into the discussion, there will be no nice words.

I think being positive is huge. I think that's why I try not to complain and b***h on my blog. Someday my kids may read it and I don't want them to think I don't appreciate all the blessings that I have.
