STRONGER

Due to feeling stressed out and overwhelmed with everything that's happening in my life at the moment, of course, Christine will break down. In five days, I will be sitting the OET exam..and apart from that, many other things is going to happen very soon! I take the OET exam very seriously because 1) this is the first time I'm taking this exam; and 2) this is something that can make a great change in my life this year (with regards to my career, that is). So yesterday, I was really off. Feeling tired and unhappy. Just feeling so over everything. I just wanna stay home, do whatever I wanna do, not having to worry or think about anything... AT ALL! But I can't really do that, can I? :(

Before, I will just keep everything to myself and get stressed (alone) about it.. But God is good because He's given me someone who will be there for me no matter what. Someone who's gonna hold my hand and say, "It's going to be okay. You can do this." I am lucky. I now have someone who will try to clear my mind and will help me find solutions to problems. For him, I'm thanking God.

So I was holding on at work last night (PM shift). Was a tough one but I tried to not let the busy shift drag me down more. So while having my dinner break, I thought of stuff that could make me feel better when I get home, just to have a mini-break from everything. I asked Gilbert if we can watch a movie when I get home, and then after work, before I head back home, I will buy us some Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Then I got excited and happy. :) Yesterday ended up really good, having a smiling heart before I went to sleep.

I realized and learned things like:
1) I should learn more about not holding everything inside me whenever I feel stressed because there's going to be someone who's willing to be with me on everything now;
2) Whenever I get stressed, I have to pause and move outside of the picture, and breathe;
3) I have to think of things that I can do to make me feel better -- "MINI-BREAK!"; and
4) Once I feel better, I'll get back to the whole situation, prioritize, and work on them one by one. Not putting too much pressure on myself, but just focusing on one thing at a time.

I thought I knew all these things already but I guess it needs practice too. Also, it helps to be reminded, to surround ourselves with the right people. People who will help us up. People who believes that we can. And now that I'm feeling so much better, I can get back to my review!

I CAN DO THIS!

Happiness

I've always been a worrier. I worry about most things even if there's nothing to be worried about. And will you believe if I say, I even worry when I am happy? That sounds odd, isn't it? To actually be worried, when you are happy. But yes, that's how I am and I wanna change that. You're probably wondering why is that, but it's pretty simple really.


I worry when I get happy or joyous because I know it is a fact that it will not last. Life always has it's ups and downs, and when you are happy one moment, you're gonna be sad/lonely the next time. That's why I worry if I'm happy. I'm scared to be sad. It's like every time I get really excited about something, at that very moment I'm really smiling or laughing out loud, then I will come to think," Hang on... Something bad or sad is going to happen soon."

I don't like it. It's me stopping myself from being happy and just feeling the moment that has been given to me. It makes me so cautious that I'm not giving myself the whole purpose of being happy. I know I've said this before somewhere in one of my blogs -- that happiness is a choice. It really is. And though I have this weird mentality stuck in my head, that I worry when I'm happy, I actually believe that even if the whole situation is not happy, I can choose to be happy and turn the whole horrible situation around. It's not very easy. I am still struggling on practising this, but like many things that I have to work on to be a better person, I will keep trying to do this because I think it's healthy for me and for the people that I care for and love.

I am not perfect. I will never be. But I will keep trying to be perfect for My Creator because all I am is for His glory. The fact that I'm able to share these things about myself, makes me appreciate Him more, because I know that being aware and recognizing my flaws will make me better, for the reason that I wanna be better and if I can change what I can to be a better person... For myself, for the people around me, and most especially, for My King... then I will. It's never easy, but for as long as I work on it and hope that I can, then it's all good, isn't it? :)
