I used to do all of these daily things when a new year began.
Some worked, some didn’t.
It went from a daily thing to a weekly thing to doing it once in awhile. And then I just completely forget about it.
I was trying to see the positivity in my daily life. It is something I should do everyday. But on days that I was too anxious or too depressed, it was so difficult finding the positivity in my life.
A couple of weeks ago, I became too overwhelmed with my life and I started to become really anxious.
I started my new job and became flooded with so much information and I didn’t know what to do. And at the same time, my parents left for their 2 week vacation to the Philippines. I still have my cousins, aunts and uncles here. But I felt really anxious to be alone at home and not have my parents or brother around.
One day before work: all these worries were in my head and I started to become anxious enough that I really didn’t want to go to work.
So I decided to write everything that I was worried about. By knowing ahead of time of every little thing that worried me, it helped me get through the day.
So every day before work, I go to Starbucks and write my worries of the day. My list is repetitive but now my list is getting smaller and smaller.
By getting the worries and negativities out of my mind and literally seeing all my worries in front of me, I was able to conquer the day ahead of me.
