I haven't figured how to edit my post.


So far so good, I have done everything on the list... Except last project... 15 minutes to go and I am too hungry to continue.  I will eat some food and continue later... and be done for the day. 

editing posts


There is an edit button at the bottom of your post - BUT if someone replies to your post then you can no longer edit it.  

If you wanted to use your post as a 'check-list' just reply to your own post and copy and paste your list into the new post.  You could also request no replies to your post if you really wanted to, but its much more fun to have the communication.

Welcome, Prometheus!  

Best of luck with your goals for today!

READING #1 -- Timing

Wait until the time is right. It is self-defeating to postpone or procrastinate; it is also self-defeating to act too soon, before the time is right.

Sometimes, we panic and take action out of fear. Sometimes, we take untimely action for revenge or because we want to punish someone. We act or speak too soon as a way to control or force someone to action. Sometimes, we take action too soon to relieve feelings of discomfort or anxiety about how a situation will turn out. 

An action taken too soon can be as ineffective as one taken too late. It can backfire and cause more problems than it solves. Usually, when we wait until the time is right - sometimes only a matter of minutes or hours - the discomfort dissolves, and we're empowered to accomplish what we need to do.

In recovery, we are learning to be effective.

Our answers will come. Our guidance will come. Pray. Trust. Wait. Let go. We are being led. We are being guided.

Today, I will let go of my need to control by waiting until the time is right. When the time is right, I will take action.

From The Language of Letting Go by Melody Beattie ©1990 

 READING #2 -- Don't Anticipate

We wear ourselves out unnecessarily when we spend our energy anticipating the future rather than living in the present. [I wonder whether some of this anticipating the future is what triggers our procrastination.]

To anticipate bad things is obviously detrimental to our serenity. It is also needless, since most of the things we worry about never happen. Even if some of them do occur, it is easier by far to deal with real disasters than with imagined ones.

Anticipating future satisfactions can also be detrimental to our serenity. If we are living for an event or condition, which is yet to come, we are not completely alive to what is here now. We may build up some future pleasure in our minds to such an unrealistic pitch that the actual event is bound to be disappointing.

Accepting the here and now is what ensures our sanity and our serenity. Reality is never more than we can manage, with the help of our Higher Power. It is our anticipation of the future, which is unreal and dangerous.

May I live today and leave the future to You.

Hi amigos!

Here are my priorities for today. . .

  • Go for a walk
  • Look at paperwork (I don't have to do it, just look it over)
  • Balance checkbook 
  • Shop for shoes (for interview!  Yay!)
  • Buy hose
  • Use face stuff
  • Print out two job ads
  • Review resume for job ad #1
  • Jot cover letter notes for job ad #1
  • Email A.
  • Sort laundry

I think I can do all that today, if I get rolling now.  And if shoe-shopping doesn't turn into a long quest (I hate shoe shopping Frown so here's hoping I find the pair I need fast!)


Falcon CI noon



  • Go for a walk -- DONE
  • Look at paperwork (I don't have to do it, just look it over)
  • Balance checkbook 
  • Shop for shoes (for interview!  Yay!)
  • Buy hose
  • Use face stuff
  • Print out two job ads
  • Review resume for job ad #1
  • Jot cover letter notes for job ad #1
  • Email A.
  • Sort laundry

I got in a good long walk (I need the exercise) to the library. . . spent a little more time there than I meant to (libraries are seductive) but not a whole lot.

Now I feel like going back to bed.  Zzzzz. . . .  Not a good idea!  I need to eat, shower and go deal with the shoes.

I did realize that I can get some of these things done tomorrow during what would otherwise be dead time in the afternoon between two commitments, which is good to know so I don't stress out.

Lunch, shower, shoes. . .


Edited to add: Cripes, now I'm showered and fed. . . and totally feel like dragging my feet on the shoe shopping!  I even did some tidying in the kitchen to put it off.  Come on, self!  Go get those shoes!  You can do it!  


Falcon CI - got shoes

Well, that was a pain in the neck!  The shoe store was full of people milling about.  I finally found a pair of shoes that I think will work.  Though for some reason they didn't have stockings, so I'll have to get those elsewhere.

O.k., I'm going to print out those two job ads; that's a quick thing to do.  And then balance my checkbook, which I've been putting off forever.
