Watch the Whine

The other night I was putting my 10 year old daughter to bed. As she crawled into bed it all started, "My head hurts, my toe hurts, my back hurts...." Seemed like the complaints were coming one after the other and never lasting to long. She didn't even seem to notice what was going on.

Now we all need to vent from time to time, that's what helps to heal us and give us that connection to other people. However there comes a time that whining can become a habit. One small thing after the other. The negative thoughts can overpower you and drag you deeper.

Practice sharing your thoughts with those who can help. Whining every now and then is fine, just don't make a habit of it. Our focus is to try and stay positive!

Make sure you write in your gratitude journal today and list all of the good things in your life. Stop by our forum to share how you are doing.

Wishing you peaceful thoughts today,
