24-Hour No Complaining Challenge – Soul Journey Musings #14

I’m not sure why I did it. Maybe it’s because of how awful I’ve been feeling, and my desperate yearning to feel something else. Maybe it was just because I wanted to be able to share someone’s post. Maybe I lost my mind. Whatever the reason, I decided to share and participate in a 24-hour no complaining challenge.

Not complaining out loud isn’t that hard when I’m working, so the last couple hours have been easy as far as that goes. I have had to shut off the complaining and negativity in my head, but I’ve been handling that fairly well. Later when I’m out of the office and dealing with other people’s negativity it may be harder, but I’m going to try my best. I probably made it harder on myself by telling myself that I’d also try to refrain from any negative speech, but if you’re going to go for something, you may as well go all the way.

I don’t have much else to say today. I’m rather wiped from all the book work, but I’m glad that I’ve been able to get so much done. I made Eric laugh when I told him that the main reason I worked so hard to get 19 Years out was because I wanted the world to see his great cover art. As for what’s next, I’m not sure. Tomorrow I’m going to have to look around and see what I have on the Hard drive, and what, if any of it, can be turned into a new book.
