The “Mourning” After


“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” — Dr. Seuss

After every event we complete there is a “mourning after” feeling that seems to overwhelm the next day. A what’s next feeling seems to over take the morning. Once you accomplish a goal are you left wondering what’s next?

There is feeling of accomplishment when it comes to getting comfortable with the practice of letting go and launching into the new day without holding onto yesterday.
Spending too much time on what was can distract the day ahead. Learning to close a chapter and leading into the next one is a practice one must take consistently.
I think Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best, “Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

Cheers to today.
