Stop Bitching (Re-Post)

I am a whiner, complainer and grumbler. I whine, complain and grumble way too much.

I want more _____ . I want a bigger _______ . I want a smaller _______ . I want my friends to_________ .

I've got so many things to be thankful for. Instead I complain, whine and complain.

"Do everything without complaining....."----Philippians 2:14

Did you notice the word "everything"? The Word of God says that we should do everything without complaining.

Helen Keller was deaf-blind and mute. She could have spent tons of time complaining. Check out her quote below:

"Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content." ---Helen Keller

I am going to ask myself the following question: "Mike, are you deaf-blind and mute? Then stop Bitching!"

Check out this extremely rare video of Helen Keller and her teacher Anne Sullivan. Listen to the last thing that Helen says in the clip. It will knock you out.


  1. That certainly puts things in perspective. Thanks, Mike!

  2. A thankful heart is what it's all about. That video was intense man.

  3. That is an awesome video! I always try to tell myself, when I am feeling down, that there are so many other people who have it worse off than me. We need to be thankful, but we also need to be charitable. Thanks for the blog post.

  4. I'm gonna do us both a favor and NOT fill in those blanks!! ;)
