You are ALLOWED to be feeling like this.

You are ALLOWED to screw up.

You are ALLOWED to not be there yet.

You are ALLOWED to be here.

"fall down seven times, get up eight" - japanese proverb


I (and I'm sure many others here) know how you feel. I just have to trust that everyday I am growing in my ability to 'DO' stuff even if that growth seems unperceptible at times.  Keep trying. I'll be trying too...

Thanks for the great starter Lucky!  I'm working from home today, and I've been to the gym and ran an errand before work.   I'm feeling very sleepy and headachy and don't wanna work.   this is the weekend for my daughter and she's visiting a friend in a nearby town, so it's just me and the dogs and the cat and the computers and the tv and the refrigerator haha, all my temptations at my fingertips.   I had a healthy high protein breakfast, and . . . holy crap, the tv just turned itself off while I was typing this!  Cue Twilight Zone music!    Maybe it has an automatic timer or something . . .now I'm creeped out.   Maybe it's HP telling me to get to work lol.   Going to finish reading my email now then make a todo list for the day.  

PS I'm working in the chatbox today because I was scared to be alone.  I'm such a weenie lol.

Sjow up (done), Think things throughThank you lucky, for the starter,  needed that permission slip today. I will also allow myself to believe in the Law of Progress.  "The Law of Progress gives a meaning, a purpose to life".Pain has a purpose.Suffering is true torture because it has no meaning. Pain is bearable. Suffering for no reason is devastating.

Pa gives me a place for progress not perfection. Thanks for being here PA friends.

I've noticed a destructive pattern over the past few months.

When I'm coping, I show up here.

When I'm not, I don't. Which is silly, because that's when I most need to show up.

So I'm going to commit to showing up, whether I'm coping or not and whether I feel up to making a tasklist or not.

My tasklist for today:

Show up :)
