I got a depressing reality check that the major project I have been working (and procrastinating) on may not realistically get done by the deadline. Sigh. Trying to keep my head down, put one foot in front of the other, and call on my Higher Power to make the call.
Already done today:
-2 poms writing (note taking)
-4 poms grading: 1 2 3 4
-community project (no more than 2 hours)
PROMISE OF THE DAY: Promise 4
Well-planned and completed actions will be our new way of life; organizing will become second nature. The desire to daydream, task avoidance, and the dread of actions will disappear, as we find pleasure anad spiritual fulfillment in completing the task before us.
Maint. basics, exer, plan, follow through, use tools that work good starter jal, SO TRUE

OK. Yesterday was hard, but today can be better. I just need to keep reminding myself how capable I am, and that just because something is hard it doesn't mean I've failed.
