I know that there are a lot of things that or wrong or need improvement.  However, just complaining about something is not the answer unless you just like to hear the sound of your own voice.  I once worked for an attorney and she said it's okay to complain but no one is really going to listen unless you come to the table with an offer of a solution.  I agree with her and have lived by that idea ever since.

It has stopped me from complaining, not that there isn't a lot to complain about it's just that I don't always have an offer of what can be done to change the situation.  Also getting upset about something and then doing nothing is more aggravating and less useful.  Who needs high blood pressure or an ulcer?  

Let's think about what is upsetting us and why and come up with some ideas for a solution to the problem.  If you can't think of anyting than let the issue go because frankly I don't need the headache, the ulcer or the high blood pressure.  It takes a lot of useless energy to complain. 

I want a solution, I want results so the next time you get ready to complain about something try thinking about what is upsetting you and why and then address how you can change the circumstances.

We can apply this attitude to everything from service, to health care to personal arguments and the government.  Get with it people and stop complaining there are a lot more things we can do with that energy.
