"If you have not slept, or if you have slept, or if you have headache,or sciatica, or leprosy, or thunder-stroke, I beseech you, by all angels, to hold your peace, and not pollute the morning." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
I saw this quote and laughed.....there is a great article in O magazine this month about whining. It is so easy to get into the complain and whine mode.....It starts innocently enough, you just want someone to know that all is not right in your world. Before you know it, every time you open your mouth a complaint or whine or several of each comes forth.
Once you reach that level, you forget to look for the good, you forget to be grateful......the blinders are on and you are swimming in the sea of negativity and whine.
I know how a complaint or whine can turn your morning upside down.......many times Rick and I have been sitting, having our morning coffee......before we know it, one of us has slid down the whiny path......and we both are in a bad mood. Truly, you have to nip it in the bud.
Tomorrow morning, regardless of sunshine or rain, happy or sad.....just for a little while......hold your peace, don't pollute.
Your day will be better for it.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams
