How did y’all do with the NCML Project yesterday? I had already failed twice before my breakfast had digested.
Me: “Gah! I hate pop-ups on the internet!”
Kris: “Sooo, are you complaining?”
The morning progresses, and I talk to my mom on the phone. I might complain a little, and I might say something like, “I might just quit (I ain’t tellin’ y’all this part.) My momma later sends me this text:
“God said to not let the word ‘quit’ go through your head. You are where He wants you. And, you need to read my friend’s blog today at dustytakle.com.”
She also added, “I love you” at the end to try to lessen the sting, I’m sure.
Complaining is a really bad habit. And, apparently, I complain A LOT. We don’t think we are complaining. But, a mere sigh of exasperation is a complaint, ya know? This NCML Project isn’t going to be easy. And, Kris Takle LOVES making me accountable for it. But, I’m not quitting. It takes 30 days to form a habit, right? Is it still 30 days? I don’t know. Anyhoo, I’m going to keep it up until the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart is pleasing to my Creator. Amen.
Another good way to overcome complaining? To focus on the blessings and gifts in your life. I mean, how could anyone complain when they get to witness moments like this on any given day?
A sweet, little, punkin boy (with his four-legged buddy) watching his daddy clean up a Little Tikes car that has stood the test of time.
Let’s focus on our blessings today. Maybe, that’ll help?
And, don’t worry, I’m not going to be titling every post The NCML Project Day Whatever. That would be torture. Not that you’d complain about it or anything.
