My facebook friend Phil Turner Jr; a relationship coach and mentor at The Relationship Group Inc., has invited his facebook friends to join him on a 30 day challenge to... not complain? ABOUT ANYTHING??? Hmmmm, my first instinct was to... well... complain! I mean, being "invited" to join a group or a page on facebook basically means nothing, you receive notifications anyway and are basically "in", so if you're not interested then you have to remove yourself!!?? And that's exactly what I was about to do; remove myself I mean, my mindset was already in complain mode! Then I read Phil's mission statement;
"Join me on a 30- day challenge to not complain about anything. Don't complain about how you're feeling to your mate or children, don't complain about work, or your job. Don't raise your voice and just deal with whatever issues that come your way in a calm fashion. Share your progress here; and if you do complain, no worries, just pick up and start over."
After I read it, I thought about every important relationship in my life; how I feel about them, how I hope they feel about me and I knew I wanted to be better for all of us. Life is awesome and God is GOOD! My inspiration for this blog, my first in ages, is to not only not complain for 30 days and beyond, but to ACTIVELY do whatever it takes to work on correcting whatever I'm complaining about... silently, and to start writing about things I don't just like, but LOVE, again!
So much has changed for me since my move to Florida and my last blog entry, I'm looking forward to filling you in! I have real love in my life, for the rest of my life God willing; my son is back in school with definitive goals in mind and my daughter is blossoming into a BEAUTIFUL young lady. And, I'm feeling better (physically) then I have in a very, very long time... So, I guess you can say I have nothing to complain about! Be well...
