Could you do it?

Could you NOT complain for 21 days straight?

Some pastor in Kansas City started making purple bracelets for folks willing to face the challenge. Read the full story here.

Honestly, I think this would be quite a difficult feat. Definitely would make one aware of how much they actually complain...

I think I'll make a conscious effort to try this (sans the bracelet).

I dunno, I think complaining can be therapeutic. It's like venting, we complain to get things off our chest...it only becomes a problem when we do it excessively and don't do anything to fix our problems. So, I wouldn't want to stop complaining, lest I explode from the tension I'm repressing :-)

NO. I am absolutely positive that I could not do this.

I complain every day: about how dirty my house is, how much i detest cooking every day, how i hate laundry, how poorly people drive.

I would go insane I think if I couldn't complain/vent on a daily basis. It is therapy.

You go, K! I applaud your decision to not complain for 21 days straight. Sometimes I actually think about how often people complain -- at work, at home, in line at the bank -- and it's astounding!

Really, when you think about it, most of us are so blessed that we have absolutely nothing to complain about. The fact that I have a job, a husband, and a home is incredible. I think the decision to not complain is nothing more than a change in perspective -- choosing to see what you do have instead of what you don't. Go, girl! I'll try to do it, too! :) (God, this is going to be hard at work... :)
