A goal of Abraham Nelson on their 101 Things in 1001 Days list with a status of Done.
Day 4! Almost complained. I'm going to expand this to "no defeatist attitudes" because resigning fault of a problem to someone else is pretty much diplomatic complaining. Like I wrote in the first note, life is going to be imperfect, and there are plenty of ways to deal with it constructively without taking it personally or taking a shot at anyone. Resolve obstacles without making new ones. What a great goal...

Barely made it on this one. Great goal to repeat
Day 6! Almost there... sometimes it feels like I'm screwing up because I'm thinking something negative, but I haven't verbalized it, and there's not a lot I can do to stop a thought before it happens. I'll see how long I can do this after this week too. It's a good habit to break.
Day 2! I'm realizing that there is a fine line between complaining and talking about things that aren't perfect. Ex: "It's TOO cold." vs "It's cold." or "I'm STARVING." vs "I should eat." Basically, life is going to be less than perfect sometimes, and you can either catastrophize and place fault on the world, or be flexible and let obstacles guide your choices without taking offense to it. LIKE ROCKS IN A STREAM. That's some Daoist shit right there :P I like this goal.
