A good friend of mine called Challenge 11: No Complaining for 30 Days impossible! I don't think it's impossible, but it has definitely been really hard the past few days. Of course I'm going to THINK about complaints (there's no stopping that), but this is more about not vocalizing those complaints in a non-constructive manner, and really trying to see the positives in each situation.

So far, my wife hates it. She's definitely noticed an attitude change for the positive, but believes it's coming off as fake because there's often a very thin line between sincere geniality and acting "exceedingly too positive."

Overall the strangest byproduct so far has been talking less by not allowing myself to engage in conversations with people who are notorious for "pissing and moaning" about anything and everything all day. Pretty sure we all have coworkers like that. (More on that later). We'll just have to see how the rest of the month goes.
