No Complaining Challenge – My First Day 2

The first few days of my no complaining challenge were not pretty.

No complaining – first day 2

There are those little complaints out of habit that just come out of your mouth… So far driving makes up at least 50% of my defeat.

I have road rage. Badly. I have road rage in the passenger seat and I have road rage on a bicycle. My proud second day of no complaining was overrun by sarcasm, which was driving related. (No really, how hard is it to use an indicator?) This morning I didn’t even try. Even though I may be pouting today, I’m on a good track. Overall, I’ve reduced my complaining to a bare minimum. Interestingly, I’ve also been very productive.

Sometimes I am not too sure about the rules. When is it stating a fact and when is it complaining? When is it talking about a person and when is it gossiping? Can you take something back you said before 7:30 in the morning? I was wondering if I should make it very little complaining for 42 days but I’m not giving up just yet.
