Don't Just Complain!

It’s easy to complain.

Sometimes I think I’ve practically turned it into an art form. (Especially while driving.)

But complaining does not work as a strategy.

And it won’t make you happier.

Have you ever met a gleeful complainer?

Me neither.

But there’s so much about which to complain. Just look around!

That’s the point.

At what are you observing?

It’s said that the Eagle and Vulture both find what they’re looking for. The former live things, and the latter dead ones.

Why is it easier to focus on the negative, then memorialize it, and basically ignore any possible remedy?

The more I’m able to answer that question, the less I’ll do what’s commonly known as whining!

I think perspective is key.

Abraham Lincoln said, “we can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.”

Life is a series of contrasting events and all sunshine and no rain will make for a desert.

Ok, enough metaphors.

Train your mind to not only point out the wrong but consider how to help make it right.

Be a part of the solution that can be made visible to the one who wants to find it.

Either way, you’ll find what you’re looking for.
