Wine, Wine, Wine
What in the world is up!
Was there a full moon or something? As I went through this past week I was struck by what seemed to be the theme for the week. I came to the conclusion that there are some career whiners out there. I mean people whine about any and everything. Let me just float this out there... Whining is not going to fix a problem!
Now God only knows I surely have my challenges, and do in fact do my fair share of moaning and complaining (like now) but the difference is for me it's a temporary state. It's not where I spend my time. There are those who can't seem to put together a complete sentence without having a problem with something.
If you're one of these people stop it already. If you're not but you find yourself in the presence of one who is, don't walk away, runaway from them. It's contagious and detrimental to your state of mind and attitude. Which equates to what you can do and accomplish. If a whiner starts walking toward you don't hesitate, get away as fast as you can or they'll suck the life right out of you. Really.
The next time you hear an identified habitual whiner whining let them get what they're wanting to say out and then gently but firmly ask them this--- "So what are you doing about it today so that this problem doesn't exist for you tomorrow?" then walk away. Leave them with their whining thoughts.
Look kids, I'm not saying that there aren't some legitimate concerns that shouldn't be expressed, but my goodness! Must they be expressed over and over and over, every single day. All day? Direct that energy into solving whatever the problem is. Just a thought.
That's all. That's it. I'm done whining about you whiners. Bring on the week.
OOPS... I left out the 'H' there at the beginning didn't I? Ah well... You're not gonna um... whine about it are you?
Live some. Love some. Learn some. Everyday.
