The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has been raging.
I believe that there are many who are affected by it as schools are closed, work has stopped and also outings are restricted.
It occasionally has been reported on the news that the stock market is also affected.
This is called ‘Corona shock’ with the stock price falling greatly.
I am investing in stocks.
The price of my stock have also fallen, so I am downhearted.
You can write about something that’s negative.
So, you don’t always have to write about something positive.
You can also write about something negative.
I wrote about the price of the stock falling because of ‘Corona shock’ in this way.
It’s distressing that the stock price has fallen and I am very anxious.
I wanted to sell off my stock, but in the end, I was able to hold on to it.
I've used negative words such as "anxiety" or "distressing", but this is also important to record.
There are correct ways to buy and sell stock.
But if suddenly, the stock price fell greatly, you may feel panic and you may not be able to buy or sell accurately.
But if you put your thoughts and feelings into Happy Note, you can calm down and respond calmly.
Months or years later, you can look back at how you were feeling at that time.
Even though the words you wrote were negative, in the end they can lead you to happiness.
Happy Note is “the note that will make you happy.”
If the end result leads to happiness, you can use Happy Note in any way.
I usually recommend to write about positive things on Happy Note, but you don’t always have to follow this advice.
You can think about it this way, using Happy Note “to record your feelings is what makes you happy” rather than by “writing about positive things.”
Even though you may be going through a tough time now, it can become a seed of happiness that will sprout in the future.
It might seem counter intuitive to write something negative, but try using Happy Note this way, it works.
