Ummm...yeah. It would take Mom WAY longer than 21 days to meet that requirement! At least she's honest. Anywoo, we give the people that started this trend two paws up. Certainly nothing comes easily but we could all use a few reminders to stop complaining so much and appreciate the world around us a bit more. Follow my example. Does this face look as if it complains?? Pfft! Life is good.

It's Wednesday again! That means I get to share an interesting website with all of my friends. There are some nice people who are on a mission to make it a complaint free world. Woo! We think that's a pretty ambitious task. In theory they're right. The world would be a much better place if we would stop complaining so much. But is this even possible?? Mom admits she's guilty of griping alot but she prefers to think of it as "constructive criticism". (Okay Mom - if it makes you feel better to give it a better name - go for it!). Kind of a self imposed therapy for her. Besides, she usually does it when nobuddy is around and only we hear it. Does that count?
It works like this. You order one of these nifty purple bracelets:
This is how they explain the process:
Begin to wear the bracelet, on either wrist.When you catch yourself complaining, gossiping or criticizing (it’s ok, everyone does) move the bracelet to the other arm and begin again. If you hear someone else who is wearing a bracelet complain, you may point out their need to switch the bracelet to the other arm; BUT if you’re going to do this, you must move your bracelet first! Stay with it. It may take many months but when you reach 21 days you will find that your entire life is happier, more loving and more enjoyable.
