Give up complaining for Lent?

In 2006, a Kansas City pastor challenged his congregation not to complain for 21 consecutive days—the time, he says, it takes to break an ingrained habit. (Photo by philm1310/Pixabay)

“You better stop whinin’, pinin',” Dolly Parton sings in her song, “Better Get to Livin'.”

If you’re “underpaid or under appreciated,” you’ll get no sympathy from her.

Her advice: Stop complaining and “better get to livin’.” Get your “dreams in line and then just shine, design, refine 'til they come true.”

Reverend Will Bowen could say “Amen” to that, albeit without the country twang.

Spreading Positivity...

I'm trying to be less critical.

Lately, I've noticed my tendency to critique everything. From the beginning. Often before I even have enough information to properly critique. I come in to a situation looking for things I disagree with, things that I want to argue. Overall, it leaves me feeling kind of blah and less than optimistic about things in general.

It's not just affecting me.
