I have turned into a chronic complainer. I have a positive outlook on life and my glass is always half full. But I’ve just been on a rant these last few months where I complain about everything … more than once. As an example, I hate living in the town we currently live in. I have made that a well known fact and I seem to feel the need to remind my husband almost daily how unhappy I am living here. There isn’t anything he can do to change it right now and my constant complaining only makes him feel like a failure or like he’s letting me down.
I read an article the other night about how complaining rewires the brain to be negative. Complaining also affects people around you. I know this to be true, so I have made it my goal try to find the good in each thing that I feel the need to complain about. I want to focus on at least one positive thing each day.
It has dumped rain all weekend, but it made for a cozy stay-in kind of day today and it keeps everything green. I was home with my husband and children and there isn’t any place else I would have rather been.
