Happiness is a habit.
Cultivate it !

Motivation FOLLOWS action !

From the 12 promises of Codependents Anonymous:

I am no longer controlled by my fears. I overcome my fears and act with courage, integrity, and dignity.

I release myself from worry, guilt, and regret about my past and present. I am aware enough not to repeat it.

I no longer need to rely solely on others to provide my sense of worth.

I trust the guidance I receive from my Higher Power and come to believe in my own capabilities.

Onwards into a proactive Sunday and proactive week!

Long Weekend

Another instance of unmanageability:  After a four-day break from work I am gratefel for the time off but also feeling guilty that I didn't do more. How typical.  No matter how much I do or don't do, I feel like it isn't enough. No wonder I give up before getting started. 

And yet if I list what I DID do the past 4 days, I bet I'll be surprised and pleased:  Started shopping online (no decision yet, because I haven't investigated and triple-checked every option yet, but hey at least I got started!), watched at least 5 movies and 2 Thanksgiving specials, helped my son teach his friends to play marbles, showered, emailed, made baby steps on Step One writing, thought of a story idea, watched football and played board games and computer games with family, cleaned, prayed, read my fun book, read to my son, went to his basketball tryout, helped hubby with paperwork, oh and cooked part of our Thanksgiving meal and ate it! 

So what am I not happy about?  That I didn't make a decision and buy the item I shopped for; that I stayed up way too late last night watching 3 of the movies (and then missed church and spent half of today suffering for the lost sleep); that I didn't do a better job on my Step One work; and that I didn't spend more time with my hubby. 

Not too bad; must give myself some slack for enjoying my mini-vacation :)

Hello all.

Another week begins, and I shall focus on what I *can* do.

Today's goals include:
finding joy,
being kind,
and cleaning house.

Misspelled my name, but imperfection is better than not posting

LOL re: "Movingingalong's Sunday hope"

Hi movingalong

Hi movingalong,

I was just going around in the PA when I came across this topic. The goal 'finding joy' caught my attention. I have never seen anyone set such a unique goal before. I wish you all the best for all your goals.

re: "finding joy"

Thanks Titan.

I approach P.A. from the point of view of ALL the aspects of my life that I've procrastinated on. Life, dreams, visions, relationships, caring, loving, laughter. I look at overcoming procrastinating on all those intangibles, as well as overcoming procrastinating on practical tasks.

I've procrastinated far too long at finding joy. So it is time to act on finding joy.
