Happy Post #2

02.28.17

Happy Tuesday! I’ve decided that each happiness post will begin with the struggles I’ve faced this week and the things I did to solve them. This week (2/18-2/24) has been particularly tough for me. I’ve been super motivated since 2017 started. I’ve been on my YouTube game which makes me feel so productive and accomplished when I see a video uploaded on both channels every single week. The workload has been catching up to me recently and I’m feeling less sane. Instead of being excited to vlog or film and edit those videos, I found myself dreading it. It seemed like a chore when I know it’s not and editing dragged on for even more hours than it usually takes me to edit.

I told my sister about how I was feeling and she told me that I’m wearing myself out. Which is very true! It made me think of the business trips I take a few times a year. I basically sit back stage and working on deck after deck after deck. After a whole day of just doing decks, I get SO worn out that I can’t even concentrate on beautifying the most simple of slides. I remember I had been working on decks that were 50 pages long. At the end of the day, I got a new one that was only 6 pages long but it took me just as long as it took me to do a 50 pager. I couldn’t wrap my head around why it was taking me so long. My boss looked at me, paused, and was like, “Jasmine… you need a BREAK. Go get dinner.” So I did. I came back the next morning and finished the remaining 3 slides in no more than 30 minutes.

I feel like that’s where I am right now with work and YouTube and trying to balance a social life in between. I go to work, come home, eat, edit till way past midnight, go to bed late, and restart the next day. I was on the edge of completely breaking down but there were a few things that helped get me out of that mental state:

+ I decided to postpone Thursdays video till the next Thursday. The second I decided on this, I felt a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. I thought to myself that I can actually go home and relax after a long day.
+ I talked to my sister and Leo about how I was feeling and they both offered me advice and comfort which helped so so much.
+ After I decided to take this Thursday off, I tweeted a heads up and got so many lovely encouraging tweets back. It really helped a lot and made me feel so blessed to have such kind and understanding people surrounding me on the interwebs!

The lesson I’m learning is that I really need to put myself first sometimes. Taking time to relax and recharge isn’t being lazy at all. It’s necessary for mental health and happiness. Anyways! Onto this week’s happy list 🙂

  1. First step, Jasmine — figure out what those patterns are. Step out of your martyrdom and shift from victim-speak to empowerment-speak. Instead of whining about the past and what others have done to you, focus on what you have done that attracted this mishegas into your life. Why did you marry Hal in the first place? And what are you going to do differently next time to avoid this outcome?

    1. That’s exactly what this post was about. Talking about what problems I faced this week and what I did to solve them. Not trying to play the victim. I’m showing how to make light of stressful situations.

  2. Good data, Thanks a lot!
