No Complaints, Day Four of Seven

On Monday I vowed to not complain for a week. As a meditator, I usually feel that this practice will be a piece of cake. I know how to quiet my mind, right? Even still I knew that I would complain.

Each day, I have found myself complaining about something, and each day the complaints get more subtle and almost unnoticeable. It is an entertaining exercise to watch my mind do it’s thing.

Looking at the news it is easy to “get on board” with the troubles around me and vent to friends about how lame this or that is. Very tempting…

If it’s true that we attract what we put out, my challenge to you is this:  How much are your complaints helping you get you where you want to go? What role does your attitude play in helping you get the results you want in your life? What would it be like for you to have a daily practice of not complaining?

And then when you do find yourself complaining, because it will happen, what do you do? How do you respond?

What kind of “vibe” are you putting out today?

    Even better, I like the practice of not complaining about a particular thing more than once.

    This way, you are allowed to vent once, but then better get busy accepting the thing or doing something about it.
