Wednesday 5th March 2014

Today I can start where I am.
Mind clear as water.
Leave guilt behind.
Take a step.
Thank you to PA member "Chickadee"
for the above image and words!

I can start over
where I am,
and work,
rather than feeling guilty.
I will take this
one step at a time.

Maint. basics, exer, plan, follow through, use tools that work    

 Bring the body and the mind will follow. AA slogan  For me, I can only practise that slogan here because doning anything else would be too complicated and impossible  right now. I no longer have an "offciial sponsor" , etc.,, etc and was starting to feel guilty, etc. but thax for starter moving and Kromer to remember "I can start over where I am,and work,rather than feeling guilty.
I will take this one step at a time."

KF Check in Weds 5th March 11:30

I am terrified. (1) Lost beyond words. My DH is downstairs working from home and I have not acheived a single useful thing in the time he's been working ( just under 4 hours) except maybe 15 min of long-overdue washing up. My heart feels broken because I don't really know who I am. How can living in a constant state of more or less worry, more or less guilt, more or less emptiness because I don't feel connected to my own life anymore be better than just getting on with things? It isn't. But it's what I am wading through. I cannot even write things on my list because I do not believe I will do them. I cannot see a future which contains that action.

I will post things one a time. It's the only way. There's no best thing, or right thing. *Anything* will have to do today. 

(1) that's a weird word to use, but I must have a reason to use it. Fear is here all the time. I am not being chased by an animal - just my own guilt and to-do list.

Today I have: 

  • Got up at a good hour
  • Had breakfast
  • Had a shower
  • did 15 mins of washing up
Today I will: 
  • Invoicing 
  • Cheat sheet

@ Knitfisher

Solidarity dear knitfisher. Hang in there- the fear and anziety are so hard to handle. I wish you peace. All we can do is a little step at a time-sometimes the big pictures iss so overwhelming. You are not alone. Keep coming back. I am thinking of you and sending (((hugs))) xo

@ Jalla

Thanks. I am a bit up and down at the moment, but I think this is because I am trying to deal with things now rather than push them to one side. Mentally as well as task-related.
