Guys, I am so bummed that I missed out on the Be Happy Link Up Bloghop last week! Lame, what can I say? Life, it got in the way. And it’s bound to happen sometimes. Anyhoo, let me share my happiest moment this week. Sunday morning I was cuddling with my kitties, Tut and Trina, one on each side and I promised them that if they cuddled that I would never complain again. That is how unlikely I thought it was that they would cuddle. Later that day we left to go to the store and they looked like this.
I’m not even kidding. Even my cats want us to be happy and it appears that not complaining is a big part of it.
Since this joyous moment, Tut has been chasing Trina so I am not feeling as obligated to be complaint free but who knows, maybe I started complaining first and he is retaliating. There is really no way to know. I realize that many of you will think I’m crazy, but for my atheist ass, this is as close to a sign from godDESS (if she does exist, I’m betting on a lady) as I get.
The thing is, it is incredibly difficult to stop complaining cold turkey. Seriously, I had no idea but complaining is a serious addiction. I have significantly less to tweet and facebook about. The whole thing has made me realize how haphazard I’ve been about my happiness plan. I’m working on 12 different non-related things at once and doing them all half-assed. Gretchen would not approve, or would she? Maybe it’s my way to BE KRISTIINA. But I think no, I think it me being a little bit lazy.
So I’m writing it down, I’m making a commitment right now to come up with a real plan to follow over the next 12 months. It will be hard to focus on one area a month but I’m going to make my ADHD calm the eff down.
So friends who are better at planning stuff out than me, throw me some advice in the comments. And while you are at it, be happy link up.
PS One more thing to think about… is saying something like “my back hurts” complaining? Or is it just stating a fact? Discuss.
