Complaining Away

Nah, I don’t need to complain about anything. Sure there is something I could think of if I really wanted to, but why bother? I mean really, why bother. Not in a poor pitiful me no one will listen way, (pffft to them sorts) but in a really why bother way. Get it yet. Let me show you.

Taking out the trash takes what? A whole 2 minutes max? Unless you have one long drive way or something.

Complaining or saying you will do it later, in most cases multiple times, = what? 5 minutes minimum.

Complaining you got to do this chore, or that chore, or whatever, from mowing the lawn to doing the dishes. Most cases, unless again you have a big lawn, you can get them done in far less time than you spend complaining or whining about it.

Complaining about stuff you can’t control one little bit, like let’s say the weather, does what? Cause you to waste time on something you can’t change no matter how much you yap. It’s not like the rain is going to take offense to anything you say. You can’t have a conversation with a cloud, unless you think little green men talk to you, then you might have a chance.

So I ask again, why bother? Just do it and it is done. No time wasted complaining about it. The thing/chore/whatever won’t bother you again until when/if it must be done again. You may just find you have more time as well. Another common thing people whine about. Win win all around. I’m not saying a good rant can’t be fun, as the cat does it all the time, but going on and on about something you must do, unless you prefer living in a jungle or becoming the trash king, is pointless.

Enjoy life, forget the strife.
