Happy New Year! Sunday January 1, 2017

Wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017 from all the Moodscope Team.

We’ve chosen a few famous quotes as food for thought as we enter the new year:

“New Year - a new chapter, new verse, or just the same old story? Ultimately we write it. The choice is ours.” Alex Morritt

“This is the new year the new you. You can pass through another year, coasting on cruise control. Or you can step out of your comfort zone, trying things you have never done before, and make 2017 as the year that you elevate from where you are and soar high. Make it happen!” Pablo

“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” Carl Bard

"Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbours, and let every new year find you a better man." Benjamin Franklin

Wishing you well and we hope that Moodscope will continue to be of help to you.

With love and best wishes.

The Moodscope Team

Greeting the new year by sending you all a big gentle hug. You wonderful people supported me through a very challenging year last year and I look forward to knowing you all better this year and writing many more cheerful and uplifting blogs for you. #Blackdogbegone

Ah, if you insert the word rather before "more cheerful" it gives a better sense of what I was trying to say. And to Caroline and the Team I echo HO's words. Great quotes this morning. Taking them to heart!

Leah Sun, Jan 1st 2017 @ 10:21am

I would like to thank Caroline and the team for all the work behind the scenes to keeps this a soft place to land. Also I am so grateful to have an opportunity to write blogs and to read others and all the wonderful comments.
For many years I felt isolated both physcially and emotionally but now at Moodscope I have a place where I feel comfortable and valued.
A hug to all those struggling and not feeling the happy in the phrase new year. I am thinking of you. Moodscope cares about you.
Waves at everyone from across the seas.

Echo the feelings above - and thanks for the lovely replies yesterday. Having fallen to bits on Christmas day I am bouyed up today. Last night with a family - who said (flattery?) that the teenagers stayed in because I was the guest. So I had the stimulating presence of the parents (who pick me up) and the children who seem to think my way of life is a good one to follow! Not so cheering, except we are all 'in the club' are two old friends (one the organist who was brilliant this morning) who are suffering hell with their wives/partners who are not even diagnosed with Alzheimers. For me, no resolutions - just to use this time of respite to read back over my diaries AND moodscope blogs and posts - always to see what I must learn to live with as peacably as possible, and where there is room for positive action do it. Having seen New Year in French time I came home (under escort from two tall young men) and watched the UK - the fireworks! Now to listen to the New Year Concert with a drink and the cat perhaps.Quotes - good - Pablo and 'comfort zone' life is so unpredictable and the future so uncertain I have no 'comfort zone', though church was - and is with Mr G as well. Go well, and a group hug. XXX

Loved the quotes Caroline. Determined to make some positive changes. Happy New Year to everyone who uses Moodscope and many thanks to all of you who posted either blogs or comments this year. Xx

My thanks also to Caroline and the team and my best wishes for 2017 to all the Moodscope family. I welcome the virtual hugs offered, Mary and Leah, I've barely had the energy and enthusiasm to bring myself into the New Year with any optimism that this one has the opportunity for change or anything better than this seemingly endless struggle.

Sally Sun, Jan 1st 2017 @ 11:32pm

Thank you indeed to Caroline and all the behind the scene folk who keep this ressource going daily. Amazing support, and something fresh to look forward to each day, especially when things are drab or worse...
It always amazes me to read all the different viewpoints in response to the same piece of writing/ blog. A real reminder that thinking, one's own, can be skewed at times, or just that there are many ways to be. I gain a lot from reading them as well as the blog which is often inspiring, and channels my thoughts.

Another Sally Mon, Jan 2nd 2017 @ 12:09pm

I echo all of the above. Happy new year everyone. See Lex's post for 2nd Jan and take heart from the five little things that feel good about each day. ( sorry did not get to post this yesterday) I feel privileged to have the Moodscopers as friends and supporters. Thank you one and all. Another Sally xx
