As part of a Facebook group I belong to (Weekly Parady), the next challenge for April is to not complain.
She issued this challenge yesterday.
I failed yesterday. Oh, and today.
The difference was the moment someone asked me not to, I noticed.
Not only in my speech but in my thoughts.
Pursuing writing and striving to make a difference with my wellness invites all sorts of doubts. Because there are no guarantees with either, my mind tends to wander toward a negative place when something doesn’t go my way or I run into a problem that I don’t understand.
I am looking forward to seeing how being more cognizant of the nature of my speech affects my thoughts and actions, if it leads to any major breakthroughs with my writing and my weight loss.
Hopefully, it’s not just for the remainder of this month. I want a lifetime of consciously deciding against complaining, no matter how many times I slip up and fall.
