Looking after ourselves

Daily Achievements!

Hi forum friends! I've decided to start a new thread on Daily Achievements because I suffer from depression as one of my mental illness and that means it's often hard for me to remind myself that I do actually things in my day, no matter how small they may be. I thought forumites could post here a daily achievement or 2 so we can remind ourselves that we have done something good each day. It can be as big or as small as you like. Just as long as what you did makes you proud and happy. 

I'm tagging @roses @Bow @Shaz51 @BPDSurvivor @saltandpepper @Daisydreamer @pipinya @girasole @Rosie93 @TideisTurning @HappyCastle @frog @Sans911 @outlander 

in case you might be interested as well as anyone else who wants to join in!

 

So, to get this discussion started, I'll post my achievements today which are:

- I had a gorgeous cup of tea which helped me deal with some anxiety I was experiencing;

- I paid my car registration which was due today.


See what I mean about achievements? Mine may seem small or irrelevant to some people but to me, because I have depression, these are actually major in the scheme of my life. I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.

Re: Daily Achievements!

Good thread topic @Judi9877 ... and well done on your achievements for today.

 

I got through this mornings meeting with the funeral director. Plans for my husbands service next week are coming together. 🌹

Re: Daily Achievements!

@Judi9877 fantastic idea! Glad you found some enjoyment with a cuppa today and got the rego paid in the nick of time!

 

Pfft I'm thinking what I can share...

Well, I made myself a nice healthy chicken burger for dinner tonight. Haven't eaten well or eaten a lot over the past few days--actually started feeling sick from the hunger.

 

That's it from me for today, looking forward to seeing what everyone else shares

Re: Daily Achievements!

@Emelia8 can't imagine how difficult that would have been, well done on getting through it

Re: Daily Achievements!

Good idea @Judi9877 

I will look for achievements, however little, today.

Hi @saltandpepper 

 

I'm so sorry @Emelia8 it's so hard. My mother passed away very recently also.

Re: Daily Achievements!

@Judi9877

I was widdowed 4 years ago. This is really the first time I wish we didn't have to stay anonimous.

 

As a celebrant I could have shared my funeral experience with you.

 

much love xxxx

This is a great thread, @Judi9877 Smiley Happy

 

I have made start on clearing the lounge-room and kitchen floors this morning - have done enough for one laundry wash of the grocery bags. I had run out of grocery bags, so it was well overdue. Feel pleased. 

Re: Daily Achievements!

Thanks for starting this @Judi9877. Nice way to help us to focus on strengths. I relate a lot to the idea of celebrating our efforts at counterbalancing the effects of our depressive symptoms, which often also bring low self-esteem. Totally agree that even if very small they are worth noticing as a way to encourage ourselves to continue growing what we can do.

 

Today so far:

I got up in the morning and have not gone back to bed.

Took washing off the line and into my bedroom ready for putting away.

 

Congrats to all for our daily achievements, large or small. Heart
