Well, I can complain, but then I’d have to move my bracelet. For whatever reason, someone at my church had the brilliant idea to order a bunch of bracelets from A Complaint Free World.org. The following quote is from their (not “there” or “they’re”) website …
Your thoughts create your world and your words indicate your thoughts. When you eliminate complaining from your life will you enjoy happier relationships, better health and greater prosperity. This simple program helps you set a trap for your own negativity and redirect your mind towards a more positive and rewarding life.
So, in order to break yourself of the habit of complaining, you wear this bracelet and every time you complain you move the bracelet to the other wrist. You become more aware of your words, and it can help you cease complaining.
It (in a way) makes sense. Because really complaining can’t be very productive. If I have something that bugs me I can either do something about it, or learn to accept it.
The ultimate goal is to go 21 days without complaining.
Again, from the website …
4-10 months. Call it a hunch, but I think RM is going to be closer to 10 months than to 4 months.
Wish me luck, and stay tuned, and if you hear me complain you can tell me to move my bracelet. (I have a feeling that now Crem is going to put a preset message on his cellphone that says “RM, change your bracelet“). OH, and for your information, I did pick up a couple of extra bracelets, cause I think I’m going to wear through one or two by changing them so much.
I’m just saying.
