Hi fledging...What a neat idea!!! Our daughter just gave me a bracelet the other day... that's spreading across the nation . She had seen this pastor on Oprah and
he did an experiment in his church...giving each member of the congregation a rubber
band (I think) to put on their wrist....each time they complained...they were supposed to switch wrists...and do that for 21 days. They say it takes 21 days to
break a habit.
He said on Oprah that there was such a change in his congregation 'overall'...that
they made up these little 'rubber bracelets'...and they're giving them away to anyone who sends in a request....you can even order in quantities to give to others.
I'm really very blessed...and am naturally a hyper, happy person. And when our daughter asked me to wear one with her for 21 days, she said "you probably won't
have to change yours at all...but it will be fun to do it together'. :-) Well, to
my surprise, I had to change it that very night... :-) I was actually surprised to
find that I had to change it ...not really very much...but several times over that
period...and I was really just shocked that I said as many negative things as I did...because people really 'are' always asking me how I stay so happy and positive.
I'll post the link below.....it's an interesting website to check out...and they
will accept donations to cover postage...but that really isn't even mandatory. They
really ARE just trying to 'make a difference'...and that's something we should all
be trying to do.
I've ordered bracelets from them to give to our church congregation...I can't wait
to see if people will complain about being asked to wear them. :-) And they have
actually had so many requests...there's about a 12 week wait in getting orders out.
Just read your post and thought you may be interested.
