Don’t be a Complainaholic and Smile More

There are many things to complain about in this world. I bet you just listed off at least five things in your head that just get under your skin. We easily share, even to complete strangers, the awfulness of life. Most of these complaints are circumstances beyond our control; it is too hot, there is too much traffic, there aren’t enough hours in a day. We’ve got a bad case of the grass is always greener, keeping up with the Jones’ or whatever you want to call it. What it all comes down to is a matter of the heart, a very discontent heart. It’s about attitude and choosing to count your blessings; not keeping track of hardships or even small inconveniences to spread like a plague to the next willing listener.

I challenge myself to complain less. If I can’t say something nice I should just zip my mouth.

My challenge to you: count your blessings and share at least one as a comment

I am blessed to have the freedom to express my thoughts and beliefs.
