One day in March, Oprah had the pastor of Christ Church Unity in Kansas City, MO. He was promoting a program called A Complaint Free World. Here is an excerpt from the website to tell you how it works:
Scientists believe it takes 21 days to form a new habit and complaining is habitual for most of us. As Twain said, we must coax our old behavior down the stairs. The bracelet(s) you receive are a powerful tool(s) to remind you of how well you are creating your life with positive intention. Here are the suggested rules:
- Begin to wear the bracelet, on either wrist
- When you catch yourself complaining, gossiping or criticizing (it’s ok, everyone does) move the bracelet to the other arm and begin again.
- If you hear someone else who is wearing a bracelet complain, you may point out their need to switch the bracelet to the other arm; BUT if you’re going to do this, you must move your bracelet first!
- Stay with it. It may take many months but when you reach 21 days you will find that your entire life is happier, more loving, more positive and more abundant.
Because of the popularity, it took us 5 months to receive the bracelet...I promise, I am not complaining! :-) We passed them out last Sunday, and I am so excited! I believe this could be just the start of something wonderful, not just in my own life, but in the life of our church!
