Making Life Better

Spending today complaining about yesterday won’t make tomorrow any better.

That aphorism, easy to dismiss as a frivolous adage, is absolutely true. And it applies not only to complaining about yesterday but about tomorrow and about our expectations for the foreseeable future. Complaining is, in general, a waste of precious time we could use to enjoy and be grateful for the good things in our lives.

Granted, complaining about poor service may result in getting better service, but the manner in which a complaint is lodged matters enormously. If a “complaint” is presented in a context of of grateful appreciation, it becomes a learning experience and an opportunity for positivity.

I hadn’t intended to begin today with “the power of positive thinking,” but I learned a lesson yesterday afternoon on this very subject and I thought I’d share it. My lesson improved my life and brightened my day a bit. I hope sharing it will do the same for someone else.
