Today, I decided to make my own happy.
I've been in a funk lately and work has been causing my anxiety to take control. So, I took a special mug with me to work and some extra tea.
I know this seems small and trivial, but for me it gave me a sense of control. Everytime I was getting frustrated or feeling uneasy about something I would pick up my mug and drink my tea and remember I'm doing just fine.
Plus, having this mug made me feel like I'm actually accepting my space at work. For some unrational reason, I've had a fear that my position would be taken away; that I would lose my employment. I think this has to do with my back and that I can't always do aspects ofy position fully. But, you can believe I try my hardest to do my job and not be a burden on my coworkers.
So, with this small little change the universe gave me a nod and said "I see you and here's a present". I was given a prize for solving a puzzle at work. The prize was something I really wanted and now I have it!
