Whenever I pull up my IE browser to do some admin work, I easily get distracted by these recommended articles on MSN’s homepage.
Before I know it, I spent about 20 minutes just reading one article after another.
True enough, after doing my morning rituals for today, I had some time to spare to do a little reading on some of the trending news including the best back details of women’s dresses during the Emmy‘s and why Avril‘s the most dangerous celeb on the WWW today.
Moreso, I chanced upon this article on things you can do before 9am that should make your day better. One of the said things being, able to practice contemplating on the good things that happen to you on a daily basis and writing about them.
It was said to have decreased depressive symptoms in those who have done the exercise for as short as a week or so.
I have been doing this for a while in the form of this blog series, FRIDAY’s 10 HAPPY THINGS, which was started by another fave blogger, Helga Weber of Ditz Revolution, however, I often forget doing this on Friday nights because, you know, Life and I sleep early at night coz lola mode.
I might try doing this and post occasionally here, but regularly through this private journal app, JOURNEY , which ya’ll should download if you’re not the type to write long entries on your real journals. Hehe.
Maybe this could make my heart bloom with positivity despite all the hate and negativity in this world.
So much for that intro, so to casually segue into this new writing exercise for the soul, here are my 3 GOOD THINGS that happened yesterday:
- Free brunch. My colleagues and I usually share our blessings with each other and so every chance we get to have freebies, we
getgrab!!! Haha. Kidding aside and more importantly, I love spending time with the people I currently work with in my area. They take all my worries and troubles away, plus they make me laugh so hard, so you know, all the freebies are just mere bonuses! It’s still all about quality time! 🙂
- Surprised our Boss. Yesterday, I was feeling stressed out by the fact that I had to do all these tasks for our boss’ surprise dinner on a Tuesday, which was the busiest day of the week, while making phone calls and finalizing plans for upcoming events this week. Though I was busy multitasking, and showed up late for dinner, I’m glad I got everything done and that we made our boss happy, which was what’s important! 🙂 I literally forgot what I was so grumpy about when I saw that he was really happy with the birthday dinner that his team planned for him.
- Good food. This always makes up for all the negative things and the challenges I face on a daily basis. For our boss’ birthday dinner last night, we dined out at Matteo Guidicelli‘s restaurant, Trattoria Da Gianni and I could not stop eating once I arrived. We also saw Slater Young and blogger/author gf, Kriz Uy who were both very nice and seemed really humble.
All’s well that ends well! Thank you Lord for making all these possible. I could never have done any of these without YOU! 🙂
Happy HUMP DAY! May you spread happiness and optimism to all whom you shall meet today! 🙂
