Complaint Free Bracelet

I was watching the Oprah Show this afternoon and they featured this purple bracelet that says “A Complaint Free World”. The color alone is already catchy but wait ‘til you know its purpose. Pastor Will Bowen, the man behind this bracelet, explains that the more you articulate the negative things around you, the more these things sort of manifest in our everyday lives. Very true! Now to change this attitude Pastor Bowen came up with this idea of wearing this purple bracelet. The rules are very easy to comprehend but to practice those rules… uhm… it will take a while (^_^)

Here are the suggested rules:

Begin to wear the bracelet, on either wrist.

When you catch yourself complaining, gossiping or criticizing (it’s ok, everyone does) move the bracelet to the other arm and begin again.

If you hear someone else who is wearing a bracelet complain, you may point out their need to switch the bracelet to the other arm; BUT if you’re going to do this, you must move your bracelet first!

Stay with it. It may take many months but when you reach 21 days you will find that your entire life is happier, more loving and more enjoyable.

How it Works

Scientists believe it takes 21 days to form a new habit and complaining is habitual for most of us. As Twain said, we must coax our old behavior down the stairs. The purple bracelet is a powerful tool to remind you of how well you are creating your life with positive intention.

Now I’m making my own COMPLAINT FREE "BRACELET". Technically, it is not a bracelet, it’s a RING! (^_^) But it is not just an ordinary ring. This ring is made out from dextrose by a Korean patient. I guess this ring will remind me not to complain for the next 21 days (^_^). Try it guys! It’s a good way to start the year.

Here's a simple gift from me. Hope you'll like it. Enjoy! (^_^)
