Complaining is something that I fall into far too often. That is putting it kindly. When in a difficult situation or irritated by small annoyances, I tend to gripe instead of fixing the situation. On the other hand, I can remain silent sometimes when someone is really hurting me or another person.
For my second to last Thanksgiving Thursday (I am sad to give these up next week, so I am stretching them out), looking at the beautiful side of my most common complaints seemed like a fun idea.
995. Shoes – Without these, how would we walk outside in the snow, over the rocks, on sun-baked tar, etc? Plus – I hate to say this, but it is true – they do not really suffocate your feet like I often whine.
996. Cars – Driving frightens me, but having a car to get between far places allows me to go to school, have a job, see friends, and visit my family.
997. Phones – My mother is still there for me when I need her. That makes a phone a wonderful thing despite my fear of talking on it.
