The Challenge Is On

On Sunday Buddy challenged us to spend 21 consecutive days without complaining. Talk about a challenge! Those of us who accepted the challenge were given a silicone bracelet to wear on our right wrist. Whenever we catch ourselves (or someone else catches us) complaining, we are to move the bracelet to the other wrist, and the 21 days starts all over again.

Yesterday (aka Day 1) was not a success for me, I'm humbled to report. I had lunch with a former co-worker and ended up doing a lot of complaining--about the slow service at the restaurant, about office politics, etc. Suffice it to say, my bracelet got moved back and forth a fair amount of times during the course of the day!

So my challenge starts again today. Maybe today will be better.

Cool. Wish I could stop complaining. I get sucked into it's evil web far too often.

What a great way to stop complaining! I complain way too much considering how blessed I am. And I do not want to be modeling that for my girls. Thanks for the idea!
