    "Autumn paints
    in colors bold
    the leaves of red
    and orange
    and gold
    They blaze
    along my route
    a trail
    to guide me.
    over hill and dale.

    Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.
    ~Bradley Whitford~

    emoticon Come , little leaves " said the wind one day .
    Come down to the meadow to play
    Put on your dresses of red and gold
    For the summer is past
    And the days grow cold .
    Dancing and leaping
    The leaves went along
    Until the winter called them
    To end this sweet song
    Soon fast asleep
    In their earthy beds
    The snow lays a cover over their heads .

    We got 6 inches of snow and just lazy light powder coming down tonight.
    Sore from shoveling the walks but don't think it will last too long! emoticon
    I built a snowman and made 3 snow angels in the front lawn!! So glad I had the mittens and boots within easy reach!

    This was copied from one of my Spark People Pal's blog. SPARKL3SUSAN posted it about how unhealthy venting and complaining are from a website...weorganizeu.com/shocking-consequ
    ences-complaining-grumbling-killing. Thought it was a great goal for the upcoming week and wanted to share it with you. If it doesn't post, just go to the website weorganizeu.com!

    Strategies to Cut the Complaining Habit

    Track how often you complain. Awareness is the first step towards change.
    If you catch yourself whining, add the word ‘but’ and find something positive about the situation. For example, “There is so much traffic, but I’m grateful I’m driving a comfortable car and listening to my favorite tunes”.
    If you notice you are saying “I have to…” or “I should…” change it to “I get to…” You’ll feel more empowered and positive.
    Complaining without moving towards a solution can make us feel victimized and powerless. Make a direct request for action to resolve the problem. For example, “Its cold in here, so could you please turn up the heat”.
    Journal about what’s bothering you so you can gain a better understanding and come up with possible solutions.
    Instead of complaining about a bad experience, ask what the lesson is and use it as an opportunity to grow.
    Spend more time with people who uplift you and less time with chronic complainers – because complaining is contagious.

    Change doesn’t happen overnight, but the less you complain, the more you’ll find to appreciate and be grateful for – and the happier and more peaceful you will feel.
