Still struggling, but hanging in there - woohoo!

Sunday, August 09, 2009

I was struggling with motivation to stick with it. Then both my computer and my backup broke down and I thought I would go bonkers. I didn't realize how much info - pictures, contacts, calendars, and passwords I would have to redo - whew - I got tired just writing about it - lol.

I finally got over the hump. I now can see my computer desk, have donated a couple of large bags of clothes (although I must admit I bought some when I was trying to stay away from buying anything except necessities).

Another challenge I struggle with is starting and maintaining routines and schedules. As a new semester starts, I need to conquer this insomnia, and make time for eating, exercising, getting rid of stuff, being better about taking medication on a regular schedule, homework, housework, family and friends. I really admire people who do that well.

Anyone got any suggestions from their own experience about creating and sticking to schedules and maintaining balance at the same time?

Even when I block out extra time, I have a hard time letting go and getting my butt out the door or on to the next thing on the schedule. Hmmmmm - hard time letting go?

Maybe I hoard time, adding too many tasks without letting go of others? I always underestimate the time something takes leaving no wiggle room if something doesn't go smoothly. And I never seem to learn from my experience.

I heard soemwhere the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over again, expecting a different outcome. So far that makes me certifiable - aaaaaaaaaaaaargh!

Working on sanity - step by step.

I won't give up. That is simply not an option.

    I know watching my husband who has a hard time keeping a schedule when he takes his meds properly it is much easier. He has an alarm on his phone that goes off when it is time. When he takes it properly it is much easier for him to follow the schedule with out me having to remind him. Good luck! emoticon
