Sometimes, it’s great to have a moan. I love it! It can feel liberating to let rip, to list all niggly things that exasperate and frustrate me. I feel it’s a necessary part of life. But there it ends – otherwise, it can become an indulgent habit, one where I hang out frequently as it’s an easy and comfortable spot. How do we flip out of moaning? I heard something recently (from one of my very wise friends) that chimed with me. Instead of incessantly whinging about what’s not going right, say to yourself: “Today, I get to…” and fill in the blank. Even if your day (or week) isn’t going too well, it can sometimes help to find one or two things that help tip the balance.
My ‘I get to’ blanks today are:
1. Teach one of my favourite classes
2. Do some stimulating and fulfilling work on PSHE
3. Meet an old friend for dinner
4. Work on my business
5. Stare at the fast-flowing clouds from my office skylight
What’s in your list today? I’d love to hear from you!
