Controlling your inner need to mope

 

 

“I used to think that the worst thing in life was to end up alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel alone.”  —   Robin Williams

 Life is not all peaches and cream. There will be a lot of down time when we feel depressed and want to mull over things in our life that are negatively influencing us. It’s okay to mope about things now and again after all we are only human. It is not a good idea to make moping a lifestyle for yourself. The guy in this photo was taking a few moments to chill out and think things through while smoking a cigarette. He left the scene calmed, relaxed and in a somewhat better frame of mind. He was a responsible driver who took the time to release his inner emotions and then drive home. — gc

  1. I loved your statement “It’s not a good idea to make moping a lifestyle for yourself”. I read this at just the right time….. I was a bit grumpy from other peoples continued gripes and misery….. When I read this statement it made me chuckle 🙂 Thanks for the post. I always enjoy your work.

    • Happy New Year Carmela. I am gratified that the post put a smile on your face. 🙂 Smiling is a whoe lot better than moping and it does use less muscle power. This is the time of the year for not only new beginnings and promises to improve but also a time when the Grinch turns too many people into sour pusses. There is hope out there BUT people have to quit being so myopic and look beyond their own limted attitudes and mistaken inisghts. I hope you New Year is filled with smiles, hope, confidence, love and opportunity. All the best for 2017. Many hugs to you. Take care. Be safe. God bless.
