For the past few years I have been through some difficult times (disease in the family, mental health issues, etc, etc). All these eventually left me lacking happiness.
It’s not only hard for me to feel happy nowadays, it’s almost impossible. No, I don’t have depression (but I do have OCD). I feel something like happiness, but it isn’t it!
After a lot of thought with myself and conversations with my therapist, I decided what my next step would be.
Reprogramming my brain so it can feel happiness, in some way reinventing it.
Paying attention to small things I like, looking in the past and in the present, giving myself tasks, trying new things.
I’m going to document all these here, starting from something quite simple: a dish (ok, I had 1.5 dishes) of mac and cheese!
And here’s a selfie after having a very good mac and cheese….
