Please do it your way. Sunday May 5, 2013

Some years ago, a well-known British funeral director's business published a chart of the most popular contemporary songs chosen to be played at funerals, and at the top of the list was Frank Sinatra's version of the Paul Anka song, 'My Way'.

'My Way', of course, is about someone looking back as they come to the end of their life, but I'm certain there's a lot to be said for a little reminiscence from time to time, anytime, as long as you neither become tied to the past nor stuck in it.

If you've been tracking your mood for a while, it can help to reflect on how far you've come - whether or not you've experienced a change over that period.

Sad though it may be, if a relationship has come to an end, there's a lot to be said for remembering the good times you did have. There are sure to be some.

And if you're moving on from a project or job, as I am, perhaps things are easier if you can focus as much as possible on the pluses rather than on the minuses.

Above all, please remember that you're unique. There's no one else on the planet quite like you. So rather than behaving as you think you're supposed to, or as you think others expect, be sure to be true to yourself.

Be sure to do things your way.

Please remember, too, that things at Moodscope will carry on much as normal after I leave next week, but I also hope you'll join me on the next stage of my own adventures by registering your email address with me at:

I think you'll find I'm not quite ready to face that final curtain.

As it's likely that Moodscopers will want to comment on this, and also highly probable that our email In-Boxes will be pretty busy, I'll be eternally grateful if thoughts, reflections and questions could be directed to our Blogspot:
