I complain too much. No doubt. I’ve been trying to think of the blessings around me when circumstances make me want to complain.
THEN … this morning while watching “Today” I learned about A Complaint Free World. The goal, which started with a challenge from Rev. Will Bowen to his congregation at Christ Church Unity in Kansas City, Mo., is to go 21 straight days without complaining. People have had to start over with their counts. And with each complaint, a purple bracelet moves to the other wrist.
Visual reminders help me. I’m sure I’ll have to start over, but I’m going to try. And if nothing else, maybe I can learn to complain less. I ordered some bracelets tonight because, as the Web site says, “Scientists believe it takes 21 days to form a new habit and complaining is habitual for most of us. … The purple bracelet is a powerful tool to remind you of how well you are creating your life with positive intention.”
