Promise Six of PA:

We will enjoy a life of greater prosperity as opportunities nourished by actions will thrive and grow; money lost for late fees and penalties are now available to enjoy long postponed vacations and self care.

Have a great proactive day!

I don't remember seeing that starter promise anywhere, looked in Pa promise index. I wanted to find a promise that said I will stop hurting others and myself. This one came close:


Big Book page

106) These work-outs should be regarded as part
of your education, for thus you will be learning to live.

107) You will make mistakes, but if you are
in earnest they will not drag you down

108) Instead, you will capitalize them.

109) A better way of life will emerge when
they are overcome

Journey 10 am

As of today I have worked 22 days straight on this emergency upgrade project.   I'm taking a day off tomorrow, and then things should get back to normal, or what passes for normal in my life lol. 

The good news is that I work really well under this kind of pressure where other people are depending on me and people are waiting for every step to be completed so there's MUCHO accountability.   

The bad news is that it's over so I have to go back to being accountable to myself, and you guys.   I try to give myself deadlines and stuff so that I will feel a similar sense of urgency during normal times, but it's just not the same.   I have a feeling you will be seeing a lot of me this week!    

Embrace the suck!

hi journey

That's exactly how I am ... I had a great high-paying contract job for 3 months, but almost all the money I saved from it is gone simply because I no longer had any accountability and put off applying for other jobs or doing the other work I have. To get some semblance of a savings back, I now have to work pretty much for the next 3 weeks with no days off. Fun! See you here this week and embrack the suck! :)

thanks progress and ~Happy Birthday!~

Embrace the suck!
