Do Not Complain Reboot 30 Day 2 -
It's been a while since I've updated my Do Not Complain project. In general I have gotten much more aware about when I start to feel cranky. I can take a deep breath and a step back. I find that helps immensely. I can put issues into perspective and find a way to deal with the issue in a constructive manner.
There are of course still times that I fail to watch for the approach of crankiness, and fall over the edge into crankiness . I still strive not to take it out on others, but there are times that it leaks out.
I find my photo-a-day project helps a lot. It keeps me aware of the beauty all around us and how each day is precious. Working on projects with daily progress helps too. I always have a sense that at least something is moving forward, even if other things are facing hurdles.
