What Happened When I Stopped Complaining for 2 Weeks
From August 1st to August 15th I fasted from complaining. Yes, that's right. No more "I'm tired" grumbles at 3 p.m. at the office. No more yelling at cars that cut me off on 440. No more snapping at people for not listening. The highlight of the two week period? I validated that I'm not a terrible, negative person, and optimistic people tend to live longer according to some studies. And I'm optimistic enough to believe these studies are the correct studies.
So here you go, the top five things that occurred when I stopped complaining, both the good and the bad.
