There’s been a lot of negative things happening around the globe, killing and shootings here and there… Because of these events, most people seem to look at every aspect of their life negatively. I myself is guilty about having a negative perspective most of the time and it has affected my life greatly, when I look at things in a negative light, I tend to be more worried, anxious, stressed, and sad.
I have learned along the way that everything happens for a reason. If it has happened already, you only have two choice, to look at it in a negative way or in a positive way. I would greatly suggest you look at it in a positive perspective so you can face life’s challenges with a more hopeful, motivated, and a happier vibe instead of dwelling on the negative and being all miserable about it.
So here’s what happened to my life lately…
- I’ve recently patch things up with my dad. The past year I haven’t really been in good terms with my dad. It’s what causes my loneliness the past year. I am never truly happy because I miss my dad, I miss his hugs and kisses, his cooking, and the way he would care for me. So when I mustered the strength to be in contact with him again, we talked for hours and decided to meet up in a mall. Calling him was the best decision I made, we are now in good terms again and nothing beats the feeling that I have my dad again who always got my back. I am definitely happier now. Well, would I expect? I have always been a papa’s girl anyways!
- I took a month off from my freelancing work. I’ve been working as a freelancer for almost 6yrs now. Yes, I started freelancing while I was still in college. I remember being so eager to work for these companies that my academics had suffered. There’s a bit of regret that I didn’t do better at school because I was so sidetracked in making money. All I could ever think off that time is all the money I could make. I never really took any dayoff from freelancing ’till last month. I never want to stop working, even when i’m with my friends, my boyfriend, or with my family, all I could ever think of is how I’m gonna have a smaller paycheck because I am spending time with them instead of working. But when I decided to take a month off, I’ve realized that there’s more to life than money, than having a healthier bank account. I’ve come to enjoy time with my family, and enjoy the little things with my friend and with Earvin. All these years I’ve been working, I thought I was happy because I have money but I was so wrong. True happiness comes from having healthy relationship with yourself and with the people who matter to you.
