I've been working in the same company for 5 years now and my colleagues always ask me where I get my motivation and positivity from. On my performance review last month, my boss commended me for having a very positive take on things.
My friends also tell me that I am a very positive person. I don't know what made them say that but I guess looking at the glass half-full has always been one of my inborn qualities. But what's alarming is that lately, I feel like I'm running out of positive vibes.
Stress from the daily grind... responsibilities... personal issues...unrealized expectations... Sigh. These are things that get the best of me sometimes. I am human too, you know. I can't be all positive and sunshin-y all of the time.
So just for tonight, I'd give myself the chance to rant. To become a scrooge. To not be my usual self. Because sometimes it's okay to not be okay.
What to do in times like these?
1. Move, move, move! Yes, it's nice to exercise and sweat all your stress away. So last night, I put on my midriff tanktop and my skimpy shorts and I danced in front of the mirror. Hahaha! Yes, I danced to the tune of Keisha's TikTok. At 2-freakin-AM! LOL. And it felt real good. I danced, gyrated and made a goofball of myself. 'Twas fun!
2. Eat to your heart's content! This morning I stuffed myself silly with all things yummy. I ate palabok, fresh lumpia, kwek-kwek, egg pie and banana bread. Yeheyyyyyy.
3. Rekindle an old hobby! I've been real busy with school and work and life the past few months that I sort of lost the time and interest to read books. This week, I started reconnecting with my paperbacks. I'm currently reading Nelson DeMille's "The General's Daughter".
4. Think of your blessings!
And last but not the least, blog about it! Hahaha. Yes, it's really therapeutic to put all your emotions on print. Because it's sometimes nice to acknowledge within yourself that you are not okay. What's not okay is when you don't feel okay and you don't do anything to be okay. Hehehehe, kakahilo no? :)
Well at least I'm doing something about it. So I'm sure I'll be back to being Ms. Sunshine in the next few days.
How about you, are you losing it? What do you do to recharge?
Hope everyone's having a fantastic Friday!
