Weekly Journal #5

1. My mental health

You’re not responsible for people’s thoughts. In fact, what people think of you is none of your business. Your job is to express your personality the best way you can, while having the purest intent possible.” – Thibaut Meurisse (Master Your Emotions)

I wanted to add that quote from one of my favorite self-help books because I still struggle with caring too much about what other people think, especially when I make mistakes. I know that it’s okay to make mistakes, but it’s so hard to just move on and not think about what others might think of you because of what you’ve done. Sometimes, it’s easy to just move on with my day and forget that ever happened, or even better, learn from that mistake. However, other times, it’s difficult and the event keeps repeating in my head; it’s really annoying.

So, how was my mental health this week? It started off well, but then it went downhill and I tried my best to keep my head up and focus on doing things that make me feel good (happy).

Right now, I feel good. I went to try Reïki yesterday for the first time and wow! I was amazed at how it worked on me. I need to learn how to meditate properly because it felt so amazing!

2. My career

We only have a week and three days left of school (teachers only). I am pretty much done with everything I had to do. I finished correcting, grading, and entering grades for most of my students. The only ones left are the ones who missed evaluations and have to come to complete them in the next few days. I also have to bring all my things home because I don’t know if I’ll be back at the same school next school year. So, my bedroom is a mess right now.

I stopped tutoring at the moment because school is basically finished for students and so, there is no need to tutor. As for my online students, I will still teach them this summer.

3. My productivity

I was quite productive last weekend that I barely had anything to do this week. I just had to supervise exams and organize my files. So, I’ve decided to host a readathon which started yesterday (as I’m writing this, yesterday was Saturday). I am in the mood to read right now, so I’m taking advantage of it. So far, I’ve read one book: The Giver by Lois Lowry and I enjoyed it!

4. My expenses

Well, I bought my bed frame (finally, after six months!) and I filled up my gas tank. I also went out to eat with a friend. You can imagine how much I spent.

I want to buy a new agenda because I still feel like I don’t have a good system going on here with everything I want to do in my life.
