Day 17 of 21 Days of No Complaining

H E L  L O   — The message below was sent to the participants of the Facebook event – 21 Days of No Complaining on day 17 of our journey together.  See event details here.


Hello Hello,

This morning as I silently sat and was still the answer came to the question, “what should I tell the ‘no complainers’ today?”

“Tell them about love and fear” the answer came after only about 1 minute of silence.

That was fast, I thought.

Love and Fear...the connection to complaining and complimenting is this:

Love in your heart, your thoughts, your emotions, your spirit, produces gratitude, COMPLIMENTS for others and for yourself, wisdom, other-centeredness, forgiveness, perspective, joy, peace, grace, mercy, lasting legacies, activism, accountability, and on and on.

Fear in your heart, thoughts, emotions and spirit produces angst, irritation, COMPLAINTS, intolerance, worry, unforgiveness, false pride, inflated ego, passive aggressiveness – you know, where you say you’re not complaining but internally you’re a ball of fury, impatience, self-centeredness, anxiety, etc, etc.

I suggest to you with every opportunity you have today to choose fear or to choose love, CHOOSE LOVE.

Choose love when you are in traffic and feel tempted to complain
Choose love when your child disappoints you – say it with love
Choose love when a neighbor, friend or family member is hostile
Choose love when a colleague takes all the credit for a team effort
Choose love when you are excluded from ANYTHING
Choose love when you are blamed or accused falsely
Choose love when someone stops loving you or showing you love
Choose love when you forgive without an apology
Choose love when someone complains to you
Choose love when your love is ignored
Choose love when your mind or thought or emotions say different
Choose love.

Have a deeply loving and joy-filled day.
