Last week Vered at MomGrind wrote a post about being grateful and asked her readers to list three things that were right in their lives. Instead of listing the three things in the comments, I decided to write a post on the topic.
First, I have to say that I can’t stand complaining. Most of us don’t have anything all that serious to complain about. If the energy spent complaining was put into changing what was bothering us, I believe great things could be accomplished. Of course, I complain sometimes but it usually about one of three things; my ex, my lawyer, or when I have dental issues. I make a serious effort to be aware when I am complaining, to stop, and to think of solutions to resolve the problem.
