"Moaner Lisa" is a common part of my vocabulary – in simple describing someone who whines a lot… ultimately expressing the old “If you don’t like something change it, you are not a tree” quote
I am not a whiner, nor a problem finder. I am a doer and a problem solver. I have little to no tolerance for people who constantly complain about things which could quite easily be changed / bettered. People that are like this are either just A) Lazy or B) like the attention they get from the moaning itself.
If you want something to be different in your life, for crying out loud, get off your butt and go make it different. Nobody is here to hold your hand – and why should they anyway?! Yes we all get support from family and friends which is a very necessary emotional part of everyday life but that is not the same thing as someone who constantly waits for “a miraculous occurrence” to change the way things are panning out in their world, all the while, making a nuisance of themselves to people around them about “how terrible it is”.
I am certain there are plenty of people in the world who have been through emotional, physical or mental upheaval worse than I could ever dare to imagine, but that doesn’t change the fact that as far as the average person goes, I have been through A LOT! I have scraped myself off the floor more times than I even care to remember and every day I deal with challenges which at some point seemed impossible to conquer.
To my mind, I have faced situations and circumstances that I think many would have crumbled under. Combining personal experiences with the pressures of owning a business, raising a child and running a household I will definitely give myself a FATASS pat on the back and at the same time turn around and say “suck it up Moaner Lisa” to all those who donate so much of their time and energy to nothing at all constructive.
NOBODY really wants to hear about your problems! (If they were honest enough to admit it)
Where there is a will, there is a way – ALWAYS! No Excuses!
…and I don’t mean to sound sexist but…
No matter what ANY man says – WOMEN (for the most part – there are always exceptions to the rule) are the masters of multi-tasking and managing MANY stresses simultaneously. We deal with so many things in a 24 hour period that I think most men’s brains would short circuit if they even had to attempt a week in the shoes of a career woman and mother.
Life is short and it definitely doesn’t wait for anyone. If you want something – go and get it. If you don’t know how to get it, then find out how! – Google is an incredibly useful tool and I can assure you that your “obstacle” or “issue” is definitely not as unique or isolated as you might like to think it is – there is always someone out there who has gone through exactly or almost exactly the same thing. #justsaying
If you are sitting with what feels like a dead end situation stop think about the “LOOMING OUTCOME” and start looking at finding a way to break through the wall. I would put money on the fact that if your life, or the life of someone close to you suddenly became dependent on you getting through that brick wall…. You WOULD find a way! Which simply brings me back to the fact that everything else – is simply an excuse.
If you want something bad enough, you will find a way. If you don’t, you will find an excuse. It’s that simple and trying to dress it up as anything more complicated is a lie, not only to yourself but to everyone you verbalise it to. This applies to every single thing in life. Money, love, friendships, career, emotions…. ALL of it!
Run after your happiness like it’s the last train of the night – and for heaven’s sake STOP whining – you are only perpetuating the problem!
Make it happen! You ARE awesome, I PROMISE! We ALL are! We are ALL capable of SO much more than we give ourselves credit for.
