stop complaining

Place: My Office

Poison: Long Black

Favourite Things: beautiful candles on a autumn morning.

This last weekend in Perth was a long weekend. I started it on Friday with my day off, and drove away camping with my family. I took my young neice taylah in the car with me, and she did not stop talking for the whole 2.5 hour drive. The conversation centred around everything she saw in the car windows as we flew past the countryside.

From houses, she was certain were snow in the distance. Considering it was nearly 40 degrees snow was not likely. Too cows, horses. Why I shifted gears in my car. Her favourite saying was WHY…

Aunty Manda, why…why…why…

You know what I loved every bit of it!

‘Rather light a candle than complain about the darkness!’ an old proverb

We don’t realise how much complaining can dominate our conversations until you throw your mobile out of the window, stop the flow of stress, and slow down to focus on those who are the most important to you.

We found a rock slide, where we were camping, and the screams of delight made it very hard for our family to complain about anything.

Sometimes we all need to peace out! Stop complaining, ask why? with childlike wonder and live with a sense of thankyou for all the beauty.

Peace out!
