Saying hi - my first post


I'm very anxious about joining this forum but I need to do it.  My life has been lived "on hold" for a decade.  I know we are all at different stages of recovery but wondered if anyone else found the Daily Check In lists intimidating at first? If I can get one or two miniscule tasks done, like washing the dishes or making the bed, I will have had a good day...  I guess i just have to keep my list true to me and not worry that other people are aiming to complete 20 complicated tasks.

Thank you for all the helpful posts and articles I have read so far, I send you all good wishes.

Dear Red Rose

Welcome . If I was intimidating with a list please be put at ease. My lists quite often become whistles in the dark. My list today collapsed at lunch which I burnt while adorning my earlier list with smileys (procrastinating in other words. I admire your honesty and wish you courage and kindness in your endeavors 

Welcome, Rose!

Hi Rose!
Personally, I rarely write a list. Sometimes I just post a short narrative sentence about my day, or I just mention one or two tasks.


Welcome, keep coming back.

I keep my "lists" on my calender and use the chatbox for next 3 items. A long detailed list, for me, is like a strict diet, it doesn't work(for me).I get tired and discouraged  when I see the long lists. I use concepts like "healthy, consistency, next 3 things, showing up, gratitude"

Keep coming back and do the things that work for you and give yourself time to find out what those things are.
