I have purposed not to complain anymore.
Why, you ask? Because I do it too much! I think I have a problem…Complainers Anonymous please sign me up!
A friend asked me why I am cynical yet things always come through for me. I was taken aback because first, I didn’t know I was that bad and second, I actually didn’t see like I had all that going for me. But I stopped and took a look around me and I could see the blessings; hundreds and hundreds of them.
I got this job recently after much grumbling and impatience and frustration and, despite the fact that it isn’t exactly what I wanted, I have purposed not to complain. I am truly grateful for it. I needed it. And I can already see God’s hand in it and favor. What more could I ask for?
I have an amazing family, awesome friends, food, clothing and shelter; not to mention a gazillion other things….yet I still take a moment to complain about something utterly trivial.
A friend was sharing with me about how she and her family watched her dad suffer through cancer and eventually die and I was so sad. I mean, how do you get through that? And she is the most positive person I know…she is always so chirpy and always looks on the bright side of everything. I wish I was like her.
Anyway, so I kinda promised God (“kinda” meaning I am allowing for human failure and incompetence) that I wouldn’t complain anymore. I will try my LEVEL BEST to see the good in everything and everyone. And be thankful, always!
Here’s to my new sunny disposition! 🙂
And now I’m sunny with a High of 75
Since you took my heavy heart and made it light
And it’s funny how you find you enjoy your life
When you’re happy to be alive
