Complaining Is Draining!

I quickly forgive negativity and choose again for love.
I release what is not mine and choose for inner peace.
I trust myself to seek and find a better way to live.
I clear my fear and see the Goodness here and everywhere.

Whether “kvetching” in our thoughts, with words or behavior, it all creates energy drain.
Fatigue comes from negativity and fear.
Reacting to our thoughts and perceptions with negativity causes us to feel depleted.
Learning to stop the drain with no complaints is essential to feel alive, alert and enthusiastic.

Justifying our complaints adds to our confusion in the defensiveness of our thinking.
When we excuse ourselves by defending the negative ways we think, we develop the habit.
Some live in the groove of always having something to complain about and someone to blame.
When we want to be right about our opinion, we can easily get stuck and have no alternatives.

Even when we complain about others’ complaints, we add to the negativity that drains us all.
The habit of complaining is exaggerated because it attracts either more complaints or resistance.
When we buy into conversations agreeing to complain or read the newsworthy complaining.
Complaining sets up the stream of negativity that blocks the flow of creative ideas.

Complaining is blaming.
Complaining reinforces that we are helpless victims.
Complaining closes the mind to choosing a better way.
Complaining focuses on what is wrong rather than what is Good.

There are purple “Complaint Free World” bracelets and website which I wear.
We chose to create a blue “What Can I Dobracelet which I wear.
I find when I stop blaming, I can find a better way.
I can choose to Ask and Find “ What I Can Do!”

Consider no longer being a victim of the world.
Consider no longer allowing anyone to harm you.
Consider no longer letting your mind deceive you.
Consider no longer allowing negativity to have its way!

In a mind without blame, we can claim our freedom.
In a mind without complaint, we can claim our responsibility.
In a mind without negativity, we can clam true happiness.
In a mind without limited thinking, we can claim our creativity and limitlessness.

Make a comprehensive list of everything you complain about.
Write it all down until there is no more you can find in the dark recesses of your mind.
Clear the fear, judgment, attachment and defensiveness by erasing the past.
To truly forgive is to erase it all with Love.

Everyday in everyway. I erase and fill my thoughts, words and actions with Love.
Everyday in everyway, I see and find a better way to live and love, to learn and laugh.
Life is the opportunity to change my mind endlessly.
I can learn to choose to see everything creatively.

And so it is that we are Free!
Loving you with responsibility with Gratitude,

You Are A Flower in the Garden of Life

If you would grow to be your best self
Be patient, not demanding
Accepting, not condemning
Nurturing, not withholding
Self-marveling, not belittling
Gently guiding, not pushing & punishing

For you are more sensitive than you know
Mankind is tough as war
Yet delicate as flowers
We can endure agonies
But we open fully only to warmth & light
And our need to grow is fragile as a fragrance
Dispersed by storms of will
To return only when those storms are still

So accept, respect,
Attend your sensitivity

A flower
Cannot be opened
With a hammer
