It’s a Wrap! No Complaint Challenge Complete – 049
In Episode 49, we wrap up our May monthly no complaint challenge. We ponder whether we even care about not complaining.
Jenny is diggin’ sleeping with the windows open and I’m diggin’ Mastermind groups.
Jenny’s win is related to making plans with friends and my learn is, yet again, related to my challenge to keep exercising on the regular.

“I like that I have been reminded to be more aware of my language…but I do feel like there are appropriate (and maybe even necessary) times to let some negativity (complaints, gossip etc) vent out of you. So do I care about quitting? I’d say that I care more about the reminder to increase awareness and then choose your time, place and audience if you have something negative to say”. – Peggy when answering the question about caring about quitting complaining “Everything that I want is on the other side of consistency” -Peggy when sharing her exercise challenges as a learn.
