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 slept an extra 30 minutes and I took my time in the shower smile.gif ... 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 laugh.gif

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 smile.gif 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 smile.gif

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.)
