Dear (Contact First Name),
Complaining! It's something I do too often. Maybe you do too.
Often my complaints are about not having enough time or being frustrated that I can't get funding for a worthy project. I can complain about politics both secular and ecclesial. Actually some of these complaints can be pretty humorous, like N. Carolina charging an extra tax on hybrid and electric cars because they don't use enough gas to bring in their fair share of gas taxes.
In Marianist circles I might complain to myself about not getting information for this newsletter in time, or the fact that I may have to miss three Anawim Community meetings in a row because of being out of town, or not having enough money to support our national or international Marianist efforts.
If I have nothing else to complain about, I can always worry about the weather or my health. Some of these are important and worthy complaints. Some are relatively trivial. I started thinking about what I complain about or worry about after watching the video below. It was both sobering and hopeful. You don't even need to know English to get the message from Nick Vujicic.
What are YOU complaining or worrying about today?
Representative for N. America, Asia, Australia, Ireland
