Because I’m Happy!

It has been a great week!

I’m learning something new everyday at work and that makes me happy. Especially when I have not done something before but have no choice but to do it. Not knowing if I would be able to do it but I try. And when I finally managed to get it done, there’s a big smiley in my heart. Sometimes I feel that this one month in the new job is like a year in the old job.

Every Thursday, I would rejoice that the next day is Friday. Come every Friday like today, I would be singing…

Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

Temptations

The following are the 3 things I’ve been thinking about today. Ever since the second medication had been reintroduced, I’m always craving for sweet things and I’m forever hungry. No kidding! If my hands don’t stop, I’ll be binging and munching the whole day. It’s that bad. And I’m all round and flabby now. Especially my arms. Flabby arms I have. Gah!

3-in-1 BOH Teh Tarik Kurang Manis vs Hot Lemon Water

Watch TV vs Exercise

This is so difficult vs It’s difficult but I will find a way to it

I had the temptation to indulge in that teh tarik because just imagining the taste of it lingering around my mouth and the satisfaction after a cuppa is just so hard to resist. I ended up squeezing half a lemon into a glass of hot water. Even after that, I am still craving for the teh tarik. Haha..but it’s okay. I’m definitely not going to drink it already! It’s late!

I just so wanted to be a bum after I came home from work. I allowed myself to a few games of Guess the Emoji and one round (with 5 lives) of Free Fall. It’s a game based on the animation Frozen and it’s similar to Candy Crush. After that, I started my round of self-taught yoga with the DVD I just bought. 15 minutes into it and I’m sweaty! I must at least do a 30-minute exercise everyday. It can be of any form. Household chores included.

I was tasked with something I have no clue if I’ll be able to resolved at work. The first thing that came to my mind was “Shit! I thought I could escape this!”. My psychiatrist was explaining to me about Cognitive Behaviour Therapy where for every negative thought that comes to mind, I replace it with a reasonable positive thought. I’ve been practising this whenever I feel the negative cloud is looming over me. So far, I’m doing fine.
