Hi Pro Buddies!
Wow, what a great Threadstarter :) Thanks, Journey! :)
This morning at the gym I did my cardio, stretching & ab exercises.
At work, I kept focusing on the highlighted priorities on my assignment list. During lunchtime, I updated my spending record, then ate my food. I after work, I kept working on my project list without stressing. A lot of things I had already done Prep Work on, so when I worked on them, I was able to mark them off my list. Usually I am worn out by the end of the day, but I was ok at the end of today. We'll see how I feel in the morning ;)
After work, I went by the condo & started a load of clothes to wash. Then I went & had dinner, & went to the financial class I was taking. Usually I don't ask questions, but I did tonight. I don't know that I will decide anything, but it gives me some things to think about.
Arriving at home, I put the clothes in the dryer. I have washed & moisturized my face, and brushed & flossed my teeth. I am going to check the clothes in a few minutes & see if they are mostly dry. I want to read a little bit, as I start transitioning for bed.
Have a great night, everyone! :)
Thank you, gals & guys, for being here! :)
Another great starter Vic. I think it really inspired everyone. I have read some of the comments other have writen within their CIs and I think it has setup such a good spirit. We must learn to laugh at ourselves.

Haha glad you enjoyed the cartoon. It's from Sponge Bob Square pants - that's Patrick's todo list.
Anyway, before I even got my check-in done, I had a phone call about Project E and worked on a problem with it all morning. And guess what? The problem we were having was because the Brilliant Initimidating CoWorker made a mistake. That's quite the rare occurrence.
Just finished lunch and I'm going to spend the next few hours on Project V, hoping the Project E people don't call again. I'm assigned to that project, but still I am over it for today.

OK, today is a little bit overwhelming...I have lots of work that I'm supposed to get done, and I have no idea how I'm going to find time to finish it.
So far I changed mouse food and started an experiment that seems to be going OK
I also tried to do some genotyping, but it was a miserable failure.
OK, so tasks for today are:
*Re-suspend samples in TE
*Mtg w/ DG
*Start proofreading for JH
*(If I have time) finish running GSEA
OK, right now I have about 45 min before student seminar, so I can start doing the proofreading for JH
Deep breath, it'll be OK, I can get this done
Majorily procrastinating about calculating what my job owes me in medical and submitting it to personnel. She has given me so many problems in the past, that I have a block, but that is my money and I need it!! Have to ask someone for help, don't know who.
Also need to send my dogies medical bills to her insurance.
The last thing is sending my dogies Dr. our new mail order pharmacy prescription instructions.
I must do these things, they have been looming for months and months. If I don't put in for all the medical stuff, I will lose it if & when I leave.
Hope you all will have a happy & successful day.

thanks for the great starter vic, it really made me smile.
CI to recommit to day's tasks! including a walk, and corresp as well as work binge
Good starter, my chance at using my new thinking:
TO DO LIST:
1. NOTHING - MY ATTEMPT AT HAVING A SOLUTION FOR: MY FEAR OF FAILURE, PAIN AND HUMILITION THOUGHTS OF MYSELF, TERROR OF FEELING OVERWHELMED, ETC.(DONE, MORE TO FOLLOW THROUGHOUT THE DAY)
2.SHOW UP: OUT OF MY HEAD, IN A PLACE OF SUPPORT AND HOPE, NOT ALONE (DONE)
3. CHANGE THINKING LOOK AT WHAT i DID RIGHT, WHAT I DID DO, ACCEPTANCE, ACT AS IF, GIVE SELF LEARNING CURVE TIME TO LEARN HEALTHY AND HAPPIER WAYS OF COPING WITH #1
4. CHOICES NOT PRESSURES

9:43 quiet time but how can i prevent getting distracted?
god came thru again.
first brother lawrence taught by example that we are completely dependent on god: on failure he says "i will never be able to do otherwise, if You leave me to myeslf"
that helped. it eases me out of this feeling that i have to fix this funk i'm in.
but then my old mantra: "in the uncomfortable place, look for god, not an exit."
ie god is here even when it is dark.
which reminded me of this quote scrawled on the walls of a concentration camp:
"I believe in the sun, even when it’s not shining.
I believe in love, even when I can’t feel it.
And, I believe in God, even when He is silent."
that did it for me today. that makes me believe that the light is real, even if i'm in a dark place.
thank you god.
Have been "in the dark" many, many times myself.
Your writing was beautiful and touching. I also needed to hear about G_d today, that he is with me, even my outside world doesn't match my inside world.
Prayers & hugs sent to surround & heal you today.
♥"Together we could do, what we could not do alone.♥
you're so supportive! who CAN'T have a good day with stuff like this!?
Journey love the pic that is my kind of to do list.
Today I am feeling very nervous inside. I have been depressed for awhile and I can feel my physical and spiritual self is trying to pull out of it but my mental self is presenting road blocks left and right with negative self-talk. The negative self-talk is coming from my inner brat (Chloe) yes I have named my inner brat. So today I need to begin to deal with Chloe allow her to be a part of our life but to not control my thoughts and actions. I know that this will not happen over night as Chloe has had major control for a long time. I have been resisting my routines for several months just doing what I need to do to get by. I have realized that my routines benfited me the most allowing me to do what Chloe wants to do so, today I will work on establishing new routines that put my family first and not the wants and desires of Chloe - my inner brat.
I love the idea of naming your selfish inner child haha. I think mine would maybe start with a b and rhyme with witch.
It is not actually an original idea of mine (bratfactor is) and it is sometimes referred to the inner prince or princess. Chloe is a brat -- name of a bratz doll and the personality of that doll is that of a brat. Chloe is also the name a very bratty soap opera acttress. I could also be a b..... as well.
Chloe and I have had fun today and belive it or not it has helped with my negative self talk. Hummmm maybe I have multiple personalities. I wonder if it would be possible to get my employer to pay me two salaries one for each personality.
I was on the other side trying to get the same thing done, but I love your list. Wish I could make it mine today but alas have much to do. So far
More to post but will add it later
LOL, Journey! Great Day Starter!
