clement ci - day 313 attempting abstinence, 233 from self

Yeah, i like that one: courage_fear_prayers

Abstinence from unplanned time.
  • The one thing, the only thing, i can do impulsively is write something on my todo list.
  • The one thing, the only thing, i can do off plan is recovery, something to maintain my sobriety, when tempted. I have come to believe that it is more important to maintain sobriety than to get things done.

Abstinence from relying on self. AA Big Book says to rely on God. Quoted in my bookmarks : scroll down to "AA Big Book on fears : relying on God not self-reliance:"

  • I have come to believe that it is more important to maintain sobriety of relying on God than to get things done.
    • "15 Points" point 5 says:
      5. Develop and rehearse a daily plan of thinking and acting by which you will live that day relying on God, regardless of what may upset you or how hard the old urge to rely on self may hit you.

      My Plan is this:

      1. read "15 Points"
      2. Meditate for 5 min on the attributes of God

start timers
v task
time log
quiet time
r task
s task
t task
11am pa phone mtg
sort tasks
j task
do tasks
put away clothes
abstinence day counts
weekly time logs
pre-plan tmrw

When we retire at night, we constructively review our day (BB).
  • Were we resentful, selfish, dishonest or afraid?
  • Do we owe an apology?
  • Have we kept something to ourselves which should be discussed with another person at once?
  • Were we kind and loving toward all?
  • What could we have done better?
  • Were we thinking of ourselves most of the time?
  • Or, were we thinking of what we could do for others, of what we could pack into the stream of life?

THINGS I AM GRATEFUL FOR (everything i "did well" comes from god, either thru gifts he's given me or the way he's transformed me)

InnerTruth's check-in for Thursday

Accomplished more yesterday than I've done for the past month. I'm working at my part-time job today so I don't have much time for the tasks I didn't get done on Wednesday.

Spent too long on some simple letters but once I finished them I felt so much better and was able to do some research.

I'm reading a great book "End Procrastination NOW!" by William Knaus. It's been very helpful in giving me insight into my problems. I'm spending at least an hour a day reading and digesting it and working on the exercises.

I know the next day when I don't have much planned I can get a lot accomplished on building my business and looking for ESL work.

To do

Up at 7:45 am

Leave for work at 8:30 am

2:30 pm - go to ESL school with resume

Mole's check in

Thanks so much jalla. Was so tired last night I went to bed at 8, so no check in.

your quote reminds me of an Arabic one: Trust in God but tether your camel! But also about creating the right conditions to make the next step less of an ordeal. In this case you have done this for me by creating a thread starter!

So - morning gone but productively, so no regrets.
