“Well done is better than well said.” – Benjamin Franklin
As a society we love to complain. We complain about everything! Thanks to social media we have a mouth piece that allows us to complain to hundreds or thousands of people at once. We complain about everything from politics to restaurant service. We love to complain because we don’t want to do any sort of action in order to solve the problem.
Let’s start to change things up a bit. Instead of complaining about everything, how about we try to solve the problem we encounter? We can’t solve all the problems of the world, but we can try and make a difference in our own personal circles. How often do you see an issue, complain about it, and then do nothing about it? This should not be normal. Here is how I try to solve problems instead of just complaining about them.
✅ Always look for a solution first. Is there something I can do to make the issue better?
💯I try to be honest about the problem. I control what I can, and I attempt to make the situation better.
🧑I have people in my life who I can be honest with about what is going on, and they can help me process a solution.
I took these photos at Freedom Park a few weeks ago. This is one of my favorite parks in Charlotte. My grandparents used to live near here, and they would take me here every time I would visit. Freedom Park has everything the perfect park should have. A playground, walking trails, ball fields, and a lake to walk around. It’s a great place to bring the family for the day, or just to come and chill out for the day. I love visiting this park, but I don’t come here as often because it takes me a little longer to ride my bike here. Also, the hill on the way back to straight up for almost 2 miles. It is pretty easy to get there but getting back takes some serious effort.
Here are some other photos I have taken at Freedom Park before.
