Today is technically Day 2, because I started not complaining yesterday. So I have a day and a half under my belt already!
I did a pretty decent job today, but I want to ask you whether these count:
1. Observing, as I drove home from my job at 9 p.m., that the gas at the corner is 10 cents higher than it was this morning, while remembering that last week it rose 11 cents in a day. That’s a 21-cent increase in less than a week! Does making such observations count as complaining? If everyone complains about the price of gas, does it count?
2. Having the phrase “drama queen” leap to mind in reference to another person. Maybe that’s not complaining; maybe it’s judging.
We’ll work on judging next week, right after I’ve mastered the art of complaining without sounding like I’m complaining.
