Sunday 13th March 2011



Happy Sunday. Have a great day! 

11th_hour March 13

I woke up at 7:30 but went back to sleep.  Finally got up at 11:00 (I think Daylight Savings Time messed me up!)

I had ONE objective today, which was go to mass.  I'm happy to say I did that but not much else.  Today was warm and sunny and I had hoped to spend some time outside in the fresh air.  That didn't happen.  Once home from church, I opened the hall window and hurt my back!  I have been in pain all day and hope the pain doesn't worsen.  When I first hurt my back over the summer, I ended up in the ER and had months of doctor appts, tests, and painkillers.  Your prayers are needed and very much appreciated!

Made the bed
Ate toasted bagel and banana for breakfast
Took multivitamin and fish oil tabs
Threw out the trash
Went to 12:00 mass
Opened hall window for neighbors (never again!)
Spoke with J on phone
Ate healthy lunch
Attended and participated in online PA meeting
Drank lots of water today
Ate soup 'n toast for dinner
Continued to read "The War of Art"
Read from "The WORD among us"

"Come, Jesus, and free me from the temptations that threaten my relationship with you.  Strengthen me with your love so that I can fight and win."

FindingNewStrength thanks for the lovely starter!!

Did nothing today except watch movies and I took Yoffee to see Tuffy. It was sad, he wanted to come with us, who wouldn't, he's tied up all day. Yoffee was happy to see him. His Mom is real nice, feel like she's got a lot, lot, lot on her plate.

Someone called looking for dog walking, but she really wants her dog Max to stay in my house for when she goes away. I was considering it, but I will call her today and tell her I can't do this for Yoffee's sake. He's a puppy lab, 77 pds, and he will want to run and play, and she's doing lots better since all our friends went home.

I was supposed to meet her and Max tomorrow, but I will call her now. I will find her reputable places where she can bring Max, becasue I'm sure she doesn't want anyone in her home. I was thinking maybe it would be better to wait for tomorrow so she can meet me face to face, etc., but I don't want to waste her time. The call went well, I can't say that I'm being 100% honest or acting with integrity, I have a secret motive of hoping she'll want me in Max's life in some way. I will turn this over, knowing, even though it hurts, that I did the right thing for Yoffee & me. I do want to be a resource for doggies and their parents, so this is good.

I really did want to go to the meeting today, and intended to, but movies...

Today I will also work out for 20 mts. Guess I'm unwilling to give up my procrastination for today.

Kindest regards & prayers!!

Show up (done), basics, strategize

Struggling and just now realized it is anniversary of my dad's death- just stirs up so many feelings and every year I am surprised, and guilt I feel for not being able to "save" the others while trying to "save" myself. Grateful that I have not "shut down" and have a place I can show up and connect.

Victory is won not in miles but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and later win a little more.
—Louis L'Amour

How much fuller each day feels when we can be patient and accept the inches
we have progressed. Yet, we are aware of large problems which require
miles of progress. We may want others in our lives to change quickly, we
may be impatient with a work situation, or we may feel angry about an

Perhaps the spiritual
message to us is we need to surrender to time. We are on the road
moving in the direction of recovery. The forces of progress are at work.
Our growth now may come in learning patience and trusting this process.
Looking back we might see a mile of progress. It was made an inch at a

Today, I will accept my progress. There are many rewards already.

From Touchstones: A Book of Daily Meditations


 What does it mean to accept where I am at now and where I have been? I give myself permission to accept all that is and where I am today.  Now, acceptance and apathy (or docility) are two different things. Acceptance just means I don't judge it for being what it is. But if I recognize something that's better, I may well pursue that as part of my natural excellence. So I can certainly accept what is and simultaneously get pretty excitedabout how my natural excellence can create what is even better. I know the direction I'm going because it's unfolding for me, I'm seeing it as it happens. 

 MY BASICS: checking in; support calls(1x); affirmations; gratitudes; reading; check calendar AM; check calendar PM; email my 6 most important tasks; voicemail;
exercise (tennis at 1:30); hypnotherapist appointment at 3:30 pm; manage A; manage D; use "tracking time"/unschedule worksheets and timer; use timer

Affirmations (said aloud as well):

I choose to show up and start my projects, 15 to 30 minutes at a time.

I set my mind to things and I complete them -- in 15 to 30 minute periods. 

Have a serenity Sunday and peace & love to all  smiling
