Complaints

Read it all, it gets better than the title. Promise.

We did it!

We have made it through another week! Now for the fun times! The weekend! Oh I am so excited. So many plans. So much to do. And I’ll probably do about less than half of it. 😛

So today I want to share another poem I wrote! I hope you guys enjoy it:

Complaints.

I hear them all day.

At work.

At home.

From friends,

Parents,

Coworkers,

Acquaintances,

Strangers,

Everyone.

Even I do it.

But why?

Are we really that miserable?

Why are we not supposed to like work?

Why is it socially acceptable to complain?

Why is it expected?

Why are we being so unhappy in what we do?

Why?

To think,

People find it easier to complain than do anything about it.

That finding the positive in something negative is looked at as being strange.

Why?

Okay.

Let’s talk about this one.

I wrote this in a heat. I was mad and frustrated. So it’s funny, I heard people complain all day at my previous job when I worked with the general public every day but the complaining didn’t bother me as much as it does now. That’s probably because of my attitude and mood towards things myself because as we all know, misery loves company! Or maybe it’s something else. Who knows. I don’t.

Well I’ve been attempting to take a different approach. To be more positive. To take a negative and put a positive spin on it for myself and others. Am I always successful? No. Sometimes I fail and sit down and complain myself. But I’m trying and that’s what matters. It gets better every single day.

And you know what happens?

People look at me strangely. Like I’m the weird one. Uh. NO. Sorry. I’m not the weird one. You happen to be. Sorry. But why are we being miserable WHEN WE CAN BE HAPPY AND CHANGE IT?! That’s what I want to do. Be happy. And spread happiness. And the more that I do this at work, the more people notice and the more infectious it is.

We can be the change we want to see in others. As long as it is about attitudes. We can spread happiness and joy. Complain less, smile more!

Enjoy your weekends! Do fun things! And be sure to spread joy wherever you go. Most importantly though, stay classy and sassy<3
