Mope: when to stop?
Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
When is it time to mope?
There are times when I do want to mope…when my thinking is not clear, or when things do not quite go the way I want. However, when I look back on the times that I have moped, I feel like that my time could have been spent more productively. There are no regrets, though. We are here to evolve. There are alternatives to moping such as:
- Making time for yourself. Do what you need to do to have some peace and quiet.
- Self-reflection- Why are you moping? What are you sad about? What can you learn from the situation? What would you do differently?
- See the positive side of things. I soon realize that things could have been worse. What are you grateful for? One thing I am usually grateful for is the fact that I am still alive.
- Learn from the situation. Make a mental note of what to do next time.
Every step of our journey counts. We never know when our time on earth will come to an end. So, I am learning more each day to spend my time wisely and to live my life the best way I know how.
All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
