frog_princess: new and overwhelmed!

I need to be here so much!!  I've been struggling with procrastination for all of my adult life and have stints of time (2-3 week) where i am able to stay on track, but then I will go back to my old ways.  I want to utilize this site to gain support, post daily lists as well as work on bigger projects that I've been putting off.  

I struggle with perfectionsim, which I am sure most of us do...  One thing I've already learned through reading articles here is that its okay to "just get a job done"...the important thing is to just do it.  Many times i don't start a project because I feel like it is going to take too long or "be too hard".  I want to get rid of these false beliefs and start making big strides in my recovery.  Procrastination affects every area of my life, but I know that with God's help I can get better.  

First mini goal to get me started on the right foot.....GET UP EARLIER...just 15 minutes earlier!!!!!!!!!  I know it will seem really hard in the morning, but doing this will start my day off so much better.  I will get up 15 minutes earlier tomorrow (March 15) and make my "list" for the day.

normal wake up time: 6:50.  Tomorrow: 6:35.   Off to bed!




thanks for the encouragement!

Its nice to already have the support of you two!  Thanks :)

Welcome. For me, as in any of my 12 step recovery programs, a big piece of
the puzzle is "maintenance" and "balance". I use this site as a
"sponsor" to check in. Just "showing up" every day has made a
significant impact on some of my all or nothing default patterns. Not a
"quick fix", at least not permanently (for me), but grateful for
movement in a positive direction, knowing I am not alone, finding my "new normal" with others.


keep coming back.

welcome frog_princess

i have been here 4 years and it has definitely helped. I feel like it is indeed a blessing from God to have this tool in my life--and these people. These are very supportive, non-judgemental people which is so paramount to my recovery, because i can be so hard on myself. It is amazing to come here and say "i wasted 8 hours" have have people say, "i know how you feel" instead of "how could you do that" or "you're pathetic" (even if i'm thinking that about myself).

People recover here. You sound like you're already well on your way! I wish you all the best!
