Progress not perfection.
Following on from the discussion in the thread here, I though I'd offer a temporary workaround to not being able to create new threads and the unmanageabity of such a long 17th March thread, by recycling the thread from exactly on year ago to use for each daily check-in. Feel free to use whatever system works for you.
Yours in fellowship,
It is early afternoon and I still have not really started the day :-( Heading to the library and hoping that I will be able to focus better there.
I started off well today, but am bogged down in the hard MITs.
I did the following:
-attended my first PA phone meeting at 8:30
-went for a run
Am now in the middle of:
-4 poms on the first 10 pages of intro did 3 poms
And need to do:
-4 poms on grading
-take care of emails and other administrative stuff ; did this, including a couple errands I've been putting off: getting trousers hemmed and knife sharpened (funny combo of tasks!)
Maint. basics, exer, plan, follow through, use tools that work good starter jal
-follow up from K.Z.
-prep for 12/11
-UI item (MB)
people say motivation won't last. neither does bathing, that's why we recommend it daily
thank you jalla

My sympathies - having been ill and only new better I understand how difficult it can be to be ill and to want to get on with things.
Thank you Rexroth. So glad you've recovered. I think convalescence can be a really tricky time for us because there is such a grey area between tiredness and procrastination, and we can feel bad about resting.
Hope you feel better soon my friend Rest up.xo
Thank you for your well wishes, dear jalla.
Thanks for the starter jalla and thanks to everyone for being here.
Feel well and only a little tired this morning and feel organised and am happy to be in a clean cleared flat with the washing up done - so:

Thank you so much jalla. Sometimes the idea that the past will let go of you can be scarier than carrying its burden.
I was listening to a programme on Radio 4 Tempus Fugit, in which they were talking about how being totally focussed on the present moment diminished our sense of time rushing past.
still bugged by a virus that has left me exhausted. Two hours work done this morning, two hours rest, healthy lunch, veggie shopping one hour rest and now it is 3.30.
Yesterday I did manage quite a good clean up, so the house does not feel so depressing.
There are three main areas I need to focus on.
1 putting some organisation into all the things I have to do, actions, filing, phonecalls, online tasks, town tasks, finances, correspondence. I need to sort the urgent from the not urgent.
that was 1, now I can't remember what the others were.. Perhaps they are part of that. I do need to make a a countdown plan towards traveling.
