So do something!

“Realize that if you have time to whine and complain about something then you have the time to do something about it.”~ Anthony D’Angelo (1803-1882) Author & motivational speaker

Ouch! Anyone else feel the sting of that quote?

On my resume I should list ‘ablity to whine’ as a strong skill set. I can stretch out the word why to 25 syllables in a weak moment. Whhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhy do I have to ____________________________________?

Most of the complaints and wine filled angst are over things like why am I the only one who has to empty the dishwasher, hang up clothes, buy all the Christmas and Birthday gifts–you know the everyday stuff.

Then there are the ones that get top billing. I’m too embarrassed to even post those, let’s just say they fall into the home remodeling department, body image and writing.

So for today I will choose to something in place of complaining and issuing my exhausting whine. I am cleaning off my front porch instead of looking at it all week wasting my energy complaining and asking Whhhhhhhy doesn’t my husband sweep off the the debris made from the stacked wood? Unless…just writing those words cancels my goal of not whining?

    Unless I’m crazy (and that’s possible) your blog has a delightful new look!

    I LOVE this “take charge” approach. It falls just under list-making as an inertia breaker!

    You go girl!!!

    Nope you aren’t crazy! I did redo the blog.
    I love list making! I hadn’t thought of writing out my complaints that way. 🙂

  3. Yes, writing those words definitely counts as a whine. He will either change and do more to your liking, or he won’t. You know him very well. Do you see any change coming from him? If so, have a chat. If no, whining over acceptance will only screw with your relationship.

    Just my half cent.

    Cheers,

    SLC
