To sweeten your emotional life, take a look at your thought patterns. Inner complaining dampens your emotional environment and drains your energy. If you catch yourself complaining, note what you’ve found that you don’t like, then shift your attention to what you do like. Since what you focus on expands, quickly replace the complaint with a thought of gratitude and feel your energy rise. Big changes come by taking daily steps. Look how quickly babies learn to walk once they begin trying. You’ll be waltzing through the tulips in no time.
