Complaint Free World update

Today was my first attempt at going complaint-free. I had to switch it once (sarcasm, oops) but I think I should've switched it a couple more times... Haha, tomorrow I'll be better.

The website where you order the bracelets said it'd take 2-5 weeks to get my bracelets, and after considering it further I decided I'd rather have something more subtle than a purple rubber band. So, I made my own. I used clear beads on clear elastic so it would be sorta "invisible' and wouldn't clash or draw attention to itself but still be easy to switch wrists when I complain. This is what it looks like:

I'd be glad to make more (tons of leftover beads!) for anyone challenging themselves to be complaint free!

Ever since I read your post the other day I've been doing a bracelet in my mind- hee hee. I'm worse than I thought! I think sarcastically and sometimes I can't stop myself from thinking mean things about people I don't know :( It's my least favorite quality. I always stop myself and make myself think of something nice about that person.

It's a challenge for sure! I judge strangers too - shame on us! I think everyone does it, but I don't want to. This challenge is good b/c it makes you aware of it! I'm going to be superduperduper proud of myself when I make it to one week without complaining, using sarcasm, or criticizing even in my mind. 21 days is a whole 'nother thing, but even one week is an accomplishment!

It'd take me no time to make you one. :-) I'll message you on MySpace for your address so I can send it to you.
