Picture download~Webshots This is the picture I would create if I had the ability. It makes me want to dance and sing, run barefoot through raindrops, dance in the moon light and coverse with flowers and fairies. I wish there were more things in my life that evoked that much response. I'm not complaining, in fact I'm thinking of declaring this a "no complaints zone". Also "nix" on whining. Excuses are still being allowed.
I watched an interesting piece this morning on CBS's Sunday Morning about a small church on a big mission. To reduce the 'complaining' we all do, all across the world, by 10%. They give out those rubbery looking braclets that are showing up everywhere these days. Theirs are purple and you put it on your wrist. Each time you catch yourself in a complaint about something or some one, you take it off and put it on the other wrist. The act of moving it is a conscious act that helps you to be aware of how often you complain. The goal is to achieve 21(yes....21) days with the braclet still on ONE wrist, unmoved.
It's a church project and volunteers mail out braclets worldwide. If you put No Compliants braclet into a search engine, it'll Google you to a list of articles about the beginnings of this movement. It's quite interesting, and along the line of the "Pay It Forward" compaign. For the record, 10 % of the worlds population would require 60 million people wearing a braclet and trying to be more tolerant of the little things that irritate us *VBS* Has everyone had a Peep today???
