Today is going to be a good day. I just know it.Smile

fudoshin: day 83 : 12:50pm

Please do not leave advice.  Thank you.  Prayers welcome. 


This is the 83rd day that I have followed through with the following:

  • 90 days away from dating sites and facebook
  • 90 days of not stalking people's profiles of people I've tried to date in the past
  • 90 days of not stalking people online that I've tried to date in
    the past. (I am now back on day 46 for this).
  • No Internet chat, aside from employment or twelve-step.  This
    includes not stalking people on AIM or other chat networks, whom I've
    tried to date in the past. (I'm on day 11
    of this.)
  • 56 days of exercise: on day 2 of this.

Hi movingalong!

Just wanted to say how I appreciate you anchoring these meetings even though I am not getting there now.

Unfortunately I have not risen (no pun intended) to the challenge of getting up an hour earlier. Now we have finished daylight saving time here it is 5.30 am instead of 6.30 am (sigh!). I know I could make it at the earler time but have not managed it so far.

Hypatia's check-in

The weekend has flown by, and although I've done quite a few useful things, the backlog is still sitting there staring at me.I've just got Sunday evening left - the question is how to make use of it, and yet have some time to enjoy myself as well.

  • sort out washing
  • do a change of address notice
  • do one item off the urgent pile
  • check how much more lace I need to make
  • empty rubbish bins
  • cook curry (postponed)
  • 10 minutes filing downstairs
  • do half an hours ironing (did an hour, still not finished the backlog)
  • check amazon for SF novels
  • wash hair
  • tidy kitchen


hope4meandu day 7 here (I think)

findingaway thanks for starting!!! Feel better quick ((((((Rexroth))))))

Grateful to be here among you all today. The cleaning help that was supposed to come today, never called back. Payback stinks. My boss is supposed to pick up a cat carrier from someone who lives on his block, he says he'll try. I have one more option if he can't do it. Goldie the cat goes to the vet Tuesday a.m., so I need a carrier by tomorrow. It's in HP's hands.

To do:
-clean oven
-clean refrigerator
-clean freezer
-Yoffee bath
-clean bathroom
-write down questions for Dr. F re: Goldie
-clean Goldie's mess

I don't want to kill myself with the cleaning, but it must be done.

Wishing you a day of peace and happiness!!

Rexroth Check In

Woke late with coughing and sore throat and feeling very fed up

Prayer and reflection
Reflection on the past week and month - what has worked and what hasn't for me
Spent time on bed looking at web - most not productively and worse I did not feel relaxed doing it

A few bits in the kitchen which I didn't see yesterday as the light doesn't work
Final look at slides - what a time I have wasted on them
Plan the week - there are things I have put off (no surprise that's why I'm here) which would be in my interests to finish
So that is it for now

Rexroth Check Out

Above but I still want to check the slides yet again to make sure I have made a 'perfect decision' as to which to copy
Spent time on phone with friend and had a constructive conversation
Phoned another friend asking for his help - I've done a lot for him and he has skills which he wants to share with me
On looking over what I've done that has worked I've been surprised as to how many things I have positively changed in my life. I've spent some time giving myself a pat on the back and giving thanks.

Prayer and reflection
Bed and sleep

and I'm feeling much better this evening. Thanks for kind thoughts.

Night Everyone

Show up (done)

just for today... one day at a time. prayer:

Just for Today

 Just for today, I will try to live through this day only,
 and not tackle my whole life problem
 at once. I can do something for twelve hours
 that would appall me if I felt that I had to
 keep it up for a lifetime.

 Just for today, I will be happy. This assumes to
 be true what Abraham Lincoln said, that
 "most folks are as happy as they make up
 their minds to be."

 Just for today, I will try to strengthen my mind.
 I will study. I will learn something useful.
 I will not be a mental loafer. I will read
 something that requires effort, thought and

 Just for today, I will adjust myself to what is,
 and not try to adjust everything to my own
 desires. I will take my "luck" as it comes,
 and fit myself to it.

 Just for today, I will exercise my soul in three
 ways: I will do somebody a good turn, and
 not get found out. I will do at least two
 things I don't want to--just for exercise.
 I will not show anyone that my feelings are
 hurt; they may be hurt, but today I will not
 show it

 Just for today, I will be agreeable. I will look
 as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low,
 act courteously, criticize not one bit, not
 find fault with anything and not try to improve
 or regulate anybody except myself.

 Just for today, I will have a program. I may not
 follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will
 save myself from two pests: hurry and indecision.

 Just for today, I will have a quiet half hour all
 by myself, and relax. During this half hour,
 sometime, I will try to get a better perspective
 of my life.

 Just for today, I will be unafraid. Especially I
 will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful,
 and to believe that as I give to the world, so
 the world will give to me.


 -Kenneth L. Holmes
