It’s important to learn how to deal with things and people in a level-headed manner, sans excessive emotion. And to learn to empty yourself of negative emotions after a rough patch.
Blogging has taken a backseat this month, as well as language learning. Been feeling lethargic and the lack of motivation in turns fuel more negativity and fatigue. Language learning has always been a form of therapy for me and I need to find some time for it every week. Incorporating #lunchtimestudy in my schedule seems to be helpful. I feel more refreshed after spending 20 mins or so reading and learning new words. It helps to take my mind off work for a little while and writing down notes just have a calming effect.
20 minutes might not seem like much but I believe in the accumulation effect. Never really a quantitative person so I’m not going to present the numbers to convince you, but all efforts count.
I don’t see it as a sacrifice of my lunchtime, in fact, I feel like it’s an energy boost. Hahaha ok I’m weird like this.
Don’t worry that I’ll abandon this space. I may not update frequently at times, but the love for writing would make come back. Writing helps me to organise my thoughts, to reflect and to see things from a more objective point of view.
That being said, it’s pointless to rant and put even more negativity in words. Why would you want to spend time to type out a whole chunk of angry text, only to experience that same (or escalated) anger again as you recount the unpleasantries.
I’ve digressed. Shall try to rearrange my schedule to see if I can add more language time in the evenings.
Currently having a bout of backache and shoulder aches so the plan to be more physically active might have to be pushed back for awhile. I just want to lie down ?.
Also, the seed of an idea is planted in my head. Whether it will really grow into something will depend on a lot of factors. Let’s leave it to fate (after effort has been put in).
Although I’m scared by myself for even considering it.
