It feels silly now to even bother since it’s 4.20 p.m. and all, but I really should try and do something from my list for today. I’m feeling better emotionally, which is good. I’ve done stuff while crying, and it’s just not a good scene.
So here’s my first set of three things:
I Love to read about your tasks and I love that you follow up about how you are going with them and then setting the next few…it’s really nice because I really really do understand what it’s like to get through the day and try to self-motivate to get things done and achieve them beyond ADHD procrastination, distraction and trying to keep the focus on what we want to focus on, instead of what our brain decides to scatteringly focus on.
I’ve been going through depression on top of ADHD and anxiety, so when I read your posts like these, I honestly admire you and I feel cosy and inspired. I’m sorry if the cosy part sounds creepy but that’s how it makes me feel. I just truly appreciate reading about people describing how they are managing their day. I struggle every day with every little task.
I was so happy with myself because 3 nights ago I started cooking dinner at 3pm and I took my time and enjoyed the process, and by 5pm I was eating dinner. That was amazing because when I cook, dinner is served late as I take too long. I made a very healthy and nutrient-rich version of fried rice (with brown rice, kale, chicken, fresh chilli, garlic, ginger, parsley, basil, coriander, broccoli, baby spinach, mushrooms, celery, onion, spring onion, fish sauce, oyster sauce and low-salt soy sauce) haha so many things!! I made enough for my partner and I to have it for dinner that night, I had it for lunch (twice) the next day and we both had it for dinner the following night. It was so yummy and healthy and I was really happy with myself for making it and having an early dinner that night then not having to worry about food for the next day.
I know what you mean, I like seeing things like this too. That’s part of why I do it. Also because posting publicly like this makes me feel like I need to do the things I said I would, since other people know my plans now. :)
That dinner sounds amazing! Yesterday I made SO MUCH pasta salad and about half as much roasted veggies! I’m going to eat some of the veggies after I water the plants, and I might have some of the pasta salad too. The whole point was to have yummy food that I could just get and eat when I needed something, instead of having to figure out what to eat and then make it. And I needed it to be something I would want to eat when it was ready. Both dishes should fit the bill. :)
