When you complain or blame you tell the world you are powerless.
You are NOT powerless. You are NOT a victim. YOU have the power to create the home and life you desire.
If you are serious, I mean really serious about wanting to live your best life then it’s time to own it. When you complain and blame you are diluting the amazing possibilities that lie in your future.
Get your head in the game
When you drop the complaining and blaming you are able to focus on the task at hand. You can roll up my sleeves and get busy.
When I started my organizing journey I knew I wasn’t going to get much help from my family because this was my goal, not theirs. I was getting organized for my well-being. Complaining and blaming, gave my power away, and I was ready to take my power back.
How about you? Are you ready to step into your power?
Do this instead of complaining and blaming
Find the gratitude. There is always something to be grateful for. Always.
Instead of complaining about the toys scattered on the floor, be grateful that your children feel happy and comfortable in their home. Instead of complaining about a messy kitchen, be grateful for the delicious meal you just ate. Focus on the good, and you’ll get more good.
Live your best life
Why do you want to declutter, de-stress and simplify? Because you want to live your best life, right?
When you’re blaming someone else for your misfortunes, you are never going to be able to live your best life. Why? Because blamers believe that other people are in charge of their happiness. Actually, you and you alone are in charge of your quality of life and happiness.
- Pay attention to how many times you complain and/or blame throughout the day. Are you surprised by how often you do it?
- When you catch yourself complaining, stop yourself. Then, replace that complaint with gratitude. Find one thing to be grateful for.
- When you catch yourself blaming, stop yourself. Always remember that you are in charge of your happiness, no one else.
