Following my previous blog "Wisdom received from Moodscopers Part 1" (20 October 2015) here is the second part of what I have learnt since joining Moodscope.

I have learnt...

6. To stand back and see the bigger picture that is, to look at the situation from another standpoint. I find that seeing my Moodscope graph really helps here:

So what if I have a low score today? When I read my comment, it is easier to understand why. When I look at the graph over time it is easier to accept the troughs as I can also see the peaks. It also becomes easier to say "This too shall pass."

7. That action leads to motivation (to quote Hopeful One)(far more often than vice versa).

Doing something, anything, however small, helps to redeem a bleak day; making a cup of tea,loading the washing machine,writing a list, which helps me focus on what needs doing
even better, ticking things off the list – even if on bad days it can be as basic as:get up/shower/have breakfast/check Moodscope/make phone call.

8. That my intuition and "gut" feeling are to be trusted, "I am my own authority."

It's ok to say "No thank-you", to acknowledge that what works for one person may not work for me, (after all, what does interest and attract me will be more likely to help me), to avoid people (and situations) who drain my limited energy levels.

9. To give myself positive, supportive messages and affirmations for, to quote Les, "What we look for, we find."

"I am safe; all is well."
"I lovingly release the past; I joyfully embrace the future."
"I release all negativity; I release all guilt; I release the need to feel unworthy."
"I release all negative thought patterns; I release the need to procrastinate."
"I forgive myself; I forgive..."
"Today I choose to live fully in the present moment."

10. To count my blessings regularly. Sometimes we dismiss well-worn clichés, forgetting the inherent wisdom they hold.

I can now change "I have learnt..." to "Today I choose (to accept)..."
