Did you know that there will always be something to complain about? Politics, religion, weather, inflation, traffic, work conditions, the clothes we have, the phone we are currently using, the car we are driving, the list goes on, basically we tend to complain about everything.
Complaining had been proven to be the easiest thing to do… We do it effortlessly… it isnt rocket science…. the way we are used to complaining, some of us its the first thing we do every morning…complaining is a no-brainer task for anyone.
This is what I recently learned, instead of complaining about the dishes in the sink, I become grateful that I had food to eat thats why I have dirty dishes. The reason my laundry basket is full, its because I had clothes to wear and the clothes that keep me warm. Instead of mourning about the traffic, I put on my favourite CD and sing at the top of my voice until I get home, or listen to radio, and sing along to any song even if I dont know the songs.
So, I learned to look at the good and cling on it, this changed my perspective on many things. I am now conscious of not complaining about anything and everything that comes my way. When there is a need to address a certain issues, I do that without pointing fingers or embarrassing anyone. I dont need to speak under my breath if I am not happy about something. It was hard at first, as I have to un-learn many things and learn new habits. It takes lots of practice on daily basis.
Here is a short task I would like you to do:
*Before complaining about how small your house is, start being grateful you have a roof on top of your head and a place you call home.
*Before you complain about how small your car is, or how you wish you had a big automatic car, be grateful you have a car that takes you from point A to B
*Before you complain how naughty and loud your children are, be grateful you have them in your life, someone out there cant conceive or just had a miscarriage.
*Before complaining how boring and tedious your job is, be grateful that you have a job that is giving the skills, pays your bills and keeps you out of trouble.
*Before complaining about Monday and how short the weekend is, be grateful that you have a job/school that keeps you busy and for you to enjoy the weekend you need to pass through the week.
*Before complaining about how cold winter is, just remember Winter has never been 35degrees and that will never happen,winter has to be cold and for you to to enjoy the summer, you ought to go through the winter.
*Before complaining about anything and everything, take a deep breath and be grateful instead.
I learned to be thankful and grateful instead of complaining… I learned to enjoy every moment of my life, no matter how sweet or bitter it might be….It doesnt matter what season I am facing in my life, I still dance in the sun and smile at the stars. I still stumble and fall at times but I continue to stand up after every fall.
STOP COMPLAINING AND START ENJOYING LIFE AS IT IS…
