Journey noon & updates

Today's a holiday for me but I got up early and went to the gym and ran some errands. I want to do my bills and budget but I can't decide if I want to take a bath first, so I'm just sitting here in indecision!  Enough time wasted, I'm going to go take a nice hot bath and then do the bills and budget for the 2nd half January.  

Update 1:30  I'm clean and fresh now, doing the bills and budget.

Update 3:50 Bills and budget done, and I finished an organizing chore that I've been working on, reorganizing my tee shirt shelf.  Now I'm going to straighten, dust, and vacuum the bedroom.  After that, I'll fold some laundry and start dinner.

The Scribbler's Monday

  • get up at 6 (slept in until almost 8, even later than usual. Not sure how to get back on track here.)
  • make bed
  • exercise
  • sweeps
  • coffee, paper
  • healthy breakfast
  • checkins


  • Update Quicken
  • Music marketing
  • Send query


  • Healthy lunch
  • Draft multiunit
  • Revise BN post
  • Run (?)


  • Read screenplay

Well, I have had a hard time getting things done today. I got started on the major project -- drafting the mutliunit article -- but that was as far as I got on it. I didn't complete it, and now I'm going to be late on my deadline,
unless something unexpected occurs. I suppose it's hard to be perfect, so I won't beat up on myself too much. But it is disappointing. I'd like to do better tomorrow.

tracy-la monday


Here in US it's a holiday Martin Luther King Day - so should be fairly quiet day at work.

Basics: gratitudes; affirmation; reading; calls - make  3 calls; check calendar for day and week; daily plan to plan.  Exercise.

2 readings for today: focus on "the now" and "acting as if":

All We Have Is Now

can only live now, this moment. We cannot erase the mistakes we made
yesterday or bring back the good times we had. We cannot know what
tomorrow will require of us, nor can we ensure future security and
happiness. Now is what we have, and now is everything.

We can
follow our plan now. We can abstain this moment. We can deal with
the problems, which confront us today as best we can, trusting God to
guide us. We can be in touch with our Higher Power only in the present.

we focus on the present moment, we live it deeper, and we derive a
satisfaction that we did not know when we were regretting the past and
worrying about the future. Whatever happens now is all I can manage and
all I need.

Thank you; Lord, for this present moment.

From Food for Thought: Daily Meditations

Acting As If

behavior we call "acting as if" can be a powerful recovery tool. Acting
as if is a way to practice the positive. It's a positive form of
pretending. It's a tool we use to get ourselves unstuck. It's a tool we
make a conscious decision to use.

Acting as if can be helpful
when a feeling begins to control us. We make a conscious decision to act
as if we feel fine and are going to be fine.

When a problem
plagues us, acting as if can help us get unstuck. We act as if the
problem will be or already is solved, so we can go on with our life.

Often, acting as if we are detached will set the stage for detachment to come in and take over.

are many areas where acting as if - combined with our other recovery
principles - will set the stage for the reality we desire. We can act as
if we love ourselves, until we actually do begin to care for ourselves.
We can act as if we have a right to say no, until we believe we do.

don't pretend we have enough money to cover a check. We don't pretend
we met our deadline when we did not. We use acting as if as part of our
recovery, to set the stage for our new behaviors. We force ourselves
through positive recovery behaviors, disregarding our doubts and fears,
until our feelings have time to catch up with reality.

Acting as
if is a positive way to overcome fears, doubts, and low self-esteem. We
do not have to lie; we do not have to be dishonest with ourselves. We
open up to the positive possibilities of the future, instead of limiting
the future by today's feelings and circumstances.

Acting as if helps us get past shaky ground and into solid territory.

show me the areas where acting as if could help set the stage for the
reality I desire. Guide me as I use this powerful recovery tool to help
create a better life and healthier relationships.
