Keeping my mind busy for good!

Santiago, Chile
September 13, 2020 2:11pm CST
I don't know what's with September and me feeling weirdly blue these days. I mean it isn't all days, it is one day in awhile. I am taking the advantage of having some stuff to be done around the house to keep my mind busy. In my position, I cannot let any single sad feeling or negative thoughts come for me. I must be stronger. A few hours ago I heard an evil voice in my mind telling me "Maybe you haven't gotten a job becuase you are not worth it" and I am like "what? I am so worth it, you inner saboteur won't stand in my way, I got this, and I'll succeed" don't know if this happens to you guys, I hope not. But come on, one's mind sometimes play tricks on us. Ugh! Found this photo for my post which is so accurate to expresss what I feel like. Photo credit Google Image.

@CarolDM thank you Carol. I really appreciate from the bottom of my heart for such encouraging words, even now that I am far away from home. Now it is my mission to pass on your energy that you just gave me with your comment. I know there will be somebody out there who feels like me so it will be my time to rescue them! God bless you!

Thank you Dianne. I actually did. I also kept my mind busy after posting on mylot, and I felt better. I just showered and had dinner. Now I am catching up with my notifications. I think I am going to bed in a while. I really appreciate your friendship and how caring you are with all of us. I bet it will return to you in prosperity, love, good health and more.

@jvicentevalera I’m so glad to hear that. MyLot is a great place to be for taking your mind off things. I’m heading to bed right now, too. Have a good night’s sleep and pleasant dreams.

@sophie09 Norhing wrong happening specifically. I am getting stressed out becuase I haven't found a job, I have sent my resume to certain companies and no call back. I am in a foreign country I dont know if you knew, I moved here almost a year ago, once the pandemic started I went jobless. So now i am a little desperate. That's why I felt down hours ago.

Hopefully, you'll find employment soon. You're right. Your brain needs to be quiet for a while - at least the negative side of it does.

Thank you Judy! I am applying for the jobs I feel more comfortable on line. It was last week when I started sending my resume because the lockdown around the city has loosened up so this is the perfect timing to look for a job. Wish me luck! I hope you have a good day ahead! May God bless you!

Hello Jose that’s good you’re doing positive self talk. Even I am feeling blue this September. I think it’s the weather starting to get cooler. People are starting to have winter blues.

@flapiz I am sure many of us are struggling with some sadness inside. I really appreciate to drop by, you don't know how much it means to me. I needed some words of encouragement from you guys. I got comments from people really valuable on this post and I couldn't be any happier! Thank you so much. When you feel down, don't hesitate to let us know and if I am around I'll go and rescue you!

It is wise to redirect your attention to other things, like you are doing now. Swapping negative thoughts as soon as they appear with positive thoughts is a good thing to do too.

@Corbin5 that's what my unconsciousness told me so. I cannot let any kind of sadness nor depression come for me. I dont allow it. As an immigrant in a foreign country, thousands miles away from my family I can't be in such dark place. It'd destroy me. Thanks for dropping by and leaving a message. It means the world to me! Whenever you feel down let us know to go and rescue you! Promise me!

Haven't heard of them @marguicha! I have the manager's phone number but I am a little shy to ask her, do you think I should text her to find out what's new?
