Hello Happy, Meet Challenging!

This blog post will deal with dealing with people. I have another blog which also deals with a similar topic ( fuckwith.news.blog ), but it is actually more focused on news and communications. Here, I want to (yet again [ see also “Hello Strangers“, from which the featured image is sourced ] ) make connections between people, to bring people who may not be aware of each other into contact with their different views, perspectives, opinions, and maybe even open up some “doors of perception” (which is, I believe, a quote book title from someone Aldous Huxley which apparently inspired the name for Jim Morrison’s band).

Today, I want to cite two blogs which posted closely related topics:

I wanted to share with you on how to cultivate happiness when blogging whether it’s towards others or yourself.

My emotional state can swing wildly depending on the day. My go to instinct is to want to hole up and be alone to wallow in my bad mood, however I know I feel much better by talking about my pain and getting things done. That’s therefore a constant challenge I’m tackling.

In my opinion, “flow” is the stuff that happens (in the brain) when we start out with challenging and attempt to move towards happiness.

PS: Oh, I almost forgot! 😯 I also wanted to connect this with Mark Manson (see: “I believe mental health and self-improvement are not something for the few or the privileged, but rather they should be a right for anyone who has taken on the responsibility to improve themselves” [ https://funny.health.blog/2021/09/16/i-believe-mental-health-and-self-improvement-are-not-something-for-the-few-or-the-privileged-but-rather-they-should-be-a-right-for-anyone-who-has-taken-on-the-responsibility-to-improve-themselves ] — and of course I should add: “not only themselves, Mark, but also each other, too! 😉 )

I have applied to so many jobs in the past year, with no response from anyone

I wish there was a solution I could give people. In reality, I don’t even have a solution for myself. Today in particular, has been the toughest day I have had in a while. I dropped my last class of the quarter, applied to more jobs, and I still feel like we are at the same time last year when everything first shut down. I feel lonely. I knew I had to let it all out so here we are.

I want to find a community of parents and educators with which to collaborate

I’ve learned since March that I placed much of my own identity in my career. My classroom at school received so much more of my attention than I ever had time to devote to my own home. Nearly all of my time outside of the classroom was wrapped up in record keeping, materials making, corresponding with coworkers and parents, and generally trying to stay constantly on top of every moving piece I had in my focus. Looking back, I was exhausted and burnt out. Still, staying home made me feel like nothing.
