1- Everything is at least 30% off- so I bought my very first cookbook and will now be attempting to explore cooking (posts on THAT to come later!)
2- I stumbled upon and thumbed through this incredibly inspiring book:

So by taking complaints, criticism and gossip out of the equation we talk more about things we do want in life instead of the things we don't want. It seems like a happier and more productive way to live!
Although it is a fabulously simple and inspiring idea, it wasn't actually something Mr. Bowen said that truly struck a chord with me, but rather a quote he included from philosopher Earl Nightingale:
"We are all self-made, but only the successful will admit it"
WOW! This really resonates with me, I love it! So, with that said...I have decided to take Mr. Bowen's challenge: 21 days without complaining, criticizing or gossiping.
Here's how it works:
- Take a bracelet, rubberband etc (Official bracelets are available for purchase here but you can easily use something you have already and save some $) and do your best not to complain, criticize or gossip.
- WHEN you c,c or g (because you will, he estimates 4-8 months on average before you can successfully go 21 days without it) move the bracelet to your other wrist and start over immediately on your 21 day journey.
