I never realized how difficult it would be to give up complaining. While it’s been an imperfect process, day 1 of NOCNOM has went on without a hitch. Only 29 more days of no complaining! It’s going great and I’m really enjoying it so far!
Giving up complaining has been unusual because I normally speak freely without paying any attention to what I’m saying. I don’t think about whether I’m complaining, complimenting, or anything. I just don’t spend time thinking about what I’m going to say. While that sounds bad, I think it makes me honest. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not mean but I share my thoughts freely.
If you’ve seen the movie “What Women Want”, remember the scene where he’s getting tired of hearing everyone’s thoughts at work. He walks into an office with two of his coworkers, who are women, and there is silence. He doesn’t hear their thoughts because they openly share them. There isn’t any extra. It’s quiet because they speak their mind and they don’t have thoughts trapped inside. I think I’m somewhat like that.
