This is Fruitycake The Raccoon. I’m all about sharing. Sharing the love. Sharing kisses. Sharing hugs. I’ll even share a picnic table on a good day. I love making that offer because no one else likes to climb on top of it.
But you know what I don’t like? Sharing the space to complain. Sharing the space to grumble. I love to grumble and I love to have others hear me. I like to be heard.
But these cows around here have their own complaining to do. And although their complaints I’m sure are certainly valuable, and udderly true, it’s taking away from my complaints.
Do you like to complain? If no one hears you, I guess complaints don’t do much good, do they? But even when others are listening to our complaints, do we want them to do something?
Or do we just want to be heard?
This world has so much noise. Most of the noise isn’t fun to hear. There is so much negativity. Do we add to that noise? Or do we try to make things better on our own?
Do we take responsibility for the things that we can change?
Or do we just make the noise?
What we are complaining about may be udderly true. But it’s also true that it’s io to us to make the changes we can.
