Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do
not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set
about remedying them - every day begin the task anew.

Journey 9:30

I'm so stressed out at work I could just cry!   Hopefully today is the day that my top priority project will get approved to go into production, but everything has gone right down to the wire.   If it's not approved by noon today I'm in big trouble.   What a nightmare!  Wish me luck!   

UPDATE 10:15 - I've had coffee and I feel a little calmer lol.  I am still stressed, but I won't let it paralyze me.  I've done what I can, the delays are outside of my control, and anyway, I think we'll make it.   We had to request an exception for one test that could not be completed, and that was approved, and we should have final signoff by 11 am - just making the deadline by the skin of our teeth.  It's been very exciting though.

Yes, happy you could relase your feelings here and that it all worked out, with 5 minutes to spare, even before I got to give a "support line". Vic

thanks for support

and you know, no matter how stressful this is, the stress was not due to my procrastination and that feels good!

Vic 11-12-10

 Show up (done) Ask God to direct my thinking, especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity , dishonest or self-seeking motives. 

Good starter, thanks. So tired of me, all my imperfections, slow progress, etc. I feel like saying who cares? But I do care, so I think today I will remedy them by surrendering them to my HP, and in the meantime get busy helping others until I can safely stop verbally abusing myself.

to Vic and Clem

This was posted in another fellowship today and it seems relevant so I'll share  (some of you may recognize it lol)

I have emailed to me Daily Reflections. Here is todays post:

We know that God lovingly watches over us. We know that when we turn to Him, all will be well with us, here and hereafter. TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 105

I pray for the willingness to remember that I am a child of God, a divine soul in human form, and that my most basic and urgent life-task is to accept, know, love and nurture myself. As I accept myself, I am accepting God’s will. As I know and love myself, I am knowing and loving God. As I nurture myself I am acting on God’s guidance.

I pray for the willingness to let go of my arrogant self-criticism, and to praise God by humbly accepting and caring for myself.

Thank you Jo, watched the movie, "Knucklehead" it was really cute, comedy. The dad told his son, who was in a bind, "I never told anyone to do this before, but pray". So the son goes to church to pray and the series of "coincidences" changed everything. Pray and believing my HP "wants to" help me changes everything, even if I "feel" the same, this too shall pass.

re: vic

thanks vic. this helped me today. i am in a similar spot--down on self--and need to similarly focus not on myself but on serving.

Hey Clem, thanks for letting me know I am not alone. This too shall pass. V

Pm ck in I can't believe I was able to work through the feelings and resistance. Miracle of the program, I guess I am more able to "sit with my feelings" enough to not shut down and follow through in spite of them with the help of my HP.  Thanks for being here.

Crazybug CI
