Mope: when to stop?

Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.


~Robert Breault

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:

  1. Making time for yourself. Do what you need to do to have some peace and quiet.
  2. Self-reflection- Why are you moping? What are you sad about?  What can you learn from the situation?  What would you do differently?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
