What Did You Do For You Today?


Recommended Posts

In my time on the survivor message forums, ie I've been on since 1999, there are so many survivors who've said, "I just wish I had that time back." Well we know that we can't turn back time. However we can reclaim some of that time when things seem to get rough. So, in this post, tell us what you like to do or are going to do when you want to reclaim your time. In others, this is the "DO SOMETHING FOR YOURSELF," post. This can include anything btw, painting, going for a walk, reading, bike riding, camping, hiking, swimming, absolutely anything, the sky is the limit.

In addition, what you post here might give others an idea of something to try when they are feeling low, including myself.

I shall start my own post.

I shall reclaim my time today by attempting to work on my current painting after completing my schoolwork.

I slept an extra 30 minutes and I took my time in the shower :) ... and today I am going to look for a bike for myself. I want to get fit and look after myself from now own instead of ignoring my body like it is an inconvenience :lol:

I'm posting on this forum. In fact, I'm off of work today and I will sit at the computer and let the hours tick by on this forum. I'm really loving this place, thanks everyone.

I am going to have a lovely shower. Then I'm going to make a tasty lunch, not worrying about the fat content :) Then I'm going to watch a DVD ... then go for a nice walk. And generally do whatever I want to do ... I'm not going to do anything I have to :)

I am going to stay up all night until I have to go to work tomorrow and post here for a while, surf online for a while, and then play The Sims until the sun comes up. Sounds like a splendid time to me!

(I have Chronic Insomnia, I think...or something. I sleep a day away and I'm up for two more.)

I dunno, going to work right now is really fun for me. I know it's not really 'me' time but it's a lot of fun. I had a great time and I joked around with a bunch of people. I'm meeting a lot of new people and making a lot of friends. After work I got online and I'm playing with my cat. She's adorable. And I spent a little bit of time on the phone. I've had a great day and I can't wait until tomorrow because I'm flying solo, though I am a little bit nervous. But I can't wait. :)

Today:

I worked on learning some songs because I want to be in the pit orchestra for an upcoming production of "Hair."

I learned a song that I may or may not perform. I'm sitting in the backup band for a musician friend & she has a tendency to call me out of the blue to do a song. So just in case.......I won't be caught off guard this time.

I made amends with somebody I treated very badly & we got a lot of things out on the table instead of letting them build a barrier between us.

I decided to go back into therapy to deal w/some lingering grief issues regarding my dad's death.

As I look at this list, I realize my day wasn't as crappy as I'd thought. :)

peace,

Oh, I've been doing lots of yummy things for myself recently. My therapist is on holiday, and so I decided to give myself a break from all things therapy related.

So, I've had my hair cut, I've been holiday shopping and spent a fortune (new jeans, skirts, tops tankini, underwear, flip flops, and a wicked pair of fly-eye Ray Bans), and today I'm getting a massage :)

I've also been good to myself by practicing my yoga regularly, cutting out bad sugars & eating more fruit.

Best of all though - on Saturday Kate and I are off for ten days camping in France! Whee! :dance:
