What | Are | You | Complaining | About?

Happy TGIF!

Have you visited "The Happiness Project" yet?

Gretchen Rubin has a great website full of inspiring quotes and questions to get you thinking..

 Gretchen's video story/post that begs to look at why we complain. It really rings true, because in the scope of life, I don't have all THAT much to complain about. I mean if you really think about it. Yes things could always be BETTER but , if we are going to complain well, at least complain about something truly complain worthy, right??

What do you think? Like me, do you find yourself complaining all too often about the simple things? The things that in actuality are part of life's joys? I don't want to go out in the rain and pick up my Kindergartner at the bus stop (yet seeing her smiling face everyday brings me huge joy) .  I don't feel like making dinner for my family. (The very same family that I love and adore and feel grateful for!) Etc..Etc..

Here is the link to Gretchen Rubin's story about complaining-

What do you find yourself complaining about MOST? What do you do to try to curb your negative thoughts and not complain, or do you feel it is better to complain and get it out?

  1. I need to bite my tongue. I'm not a silent sufferer. When I am not happy I shout it from the rooftops. I don't want to be a nagger. It is something I really need to change. I always feel better once I get it out, but not at who I'm nagging to.
