Re: Small Successes

I took my car into the shop, and I called 3 places to get prices. I also went to the store and was making jokes with the people in line, including the lady ringing me up.

Re: Small Successes

I've managed to practice daily meditation for a whole month!!

Even though it was quite a struggle to find a type of meditation that I could get into, enjoy, and "want" to do daily, I am endlessly fascinated with how much better it makes me feel from the inside out.

I used to think it was just a bunch of mumbo jumbo stuff that the "new age hippies" talked about and didn't feel it was worth even trying. Silly me.

Re: Small Successes

I paid my term bill, brought my suit to the cleaners, went door to door and signed up three people, and did a shoulder workout.

Re: Small Successes

During my lunch hour - I managed to find, try on, and buy a comfortable white shirt I need for tomorrow (for a concert); usually I wear this white polo type shirt that's not cut quite right, makes my upper arms look fat, and drives me completely insane.

Re: Small Successes

I just ended a relationship with someone I had been on and off with for a while. I told her I didn't want to get physical or anything. I set a boundary. I met my needs. I faced the anxiety and uncomfortableness head on. I'm so proud of myself.

I did it in a nice way too.

Re: Small Successes

  1. I emailed Dr. Barkley.
  2. I printed out a letter at Fedex.
  3. I delivered that letter to the human resources office of a company I'm trying to get a job with.
  4. I emailed someone with a message I voice recorded.
  5. I sent that email to her.
  6. I left a message on the answering machine for someone I need to interview.

Re: Small Successes

I have been successful in setting aside 30 minutes at the beginning and end of each day for yoga and mediatation. That 60 minute time frame, in addition to maintaining a regular med schedule, has made significant improvements in how I respond to the things that used to totally trip my trigger.

Next step is to work on that darn gym motivation.

Re: Small Successes

I went to work (although very late)
Although short, the 10 minutes that I did work was productive
I made it to another "good night" with my boys

I was exhausted driving myself and my friend home. We made it home safe.
