Keladris Counts her Wins


Recommended Posts

I am rather late to the challenge, but better late than never! 

 

I'd been putting off making a thread because I have been feeling quite down on myself and overwhelmed about taking on any new challenges. But I've also recently realised that I have made some good strides in the last couple of months and I am slowly building some habits that I should congratulate myself on!

So, for the next couple of weeks, I'm going to be awarding myself XP for anything I do that counts towards my epic quest, or general daily wellbeing. 

Here's some examples:

Today - I had soup, salad, strawberries, lemon/ginger/honey tea to help me get over this coldy thing I am experiencing. 5XP

This week - I've been doing my stretches before bed (until yesterday when this cold hit) 5XP

The last few weeks - I've developed a reading habit before bed, and I'm well into Dune now! 5XP

Some weekend wins:

I went to my acting class and preformed in front of everyone. It didn't go that well, which was a huge test for my confidence and nerve. I am proud of myself for learning from the experience though and I'm going to keep working so I can improve. I've had to really activate positive self-talk mode all weekend!  10XP for facing adversity and learning from it.

We have a salad overload in our fridge at the moment, so I'm going to work on eating some this evening. 2XP for eating my greens.

I have been quite low after having been sick, but last night I went through my monthly reflection in my planner and I have a clear idea of how  I can improve this month. Going to be focusing on early nights and regular morning routine to get my day started right and increase me energy levels. 2XP for insight and planning.



Honestly it was tough at first to think of wins, because I am so quick to focus on the negative (we had pizza last night, I slept very badly). So I like this new format!

I really like this challenge.  Counting wins is always a good idea!

Don't say "I don't have enough time", say instead "that's not a priority right now" and see how that makes you feel.

Honestly it is really helping me! Even when it has felt like a rough week, I can find things to congratulate myself on. I recommend it. Dance is going well! I have been struggling with migraines this month so had to drop out of a class or two, but have managed at least 2 ballet classes + pointe class each week. I actually feel like I have levelled up recently, suddenly able to dance more fluidly.

Last week was rough again because of another migraine. But I managed to get through it! Here are some wins regardless:
- Picked up a small gig doing a bit of investigative work for a US company. I had to go to the courthouse here to dig into some case files. It's been challenging for anxiety and my French (I live in Quebec) but satisfying to throw myself into something new! It makes me feel more 'legit' as a radio producer. 10XP

- Performed a 'cold read' exercise in acting class this week. It went well! Definitely learnt from my previous stumble. 10XP

Still working on:
- Sleep! My migraines often come when my sleep routine has been disrupted. It's hard because my natural sleep routine is quite late (from 1am-10am) but when I have jobs that require me to get up earlier, everything gets put out. Going to ponder this a bit more and figure out what to do about it.

- Stretching. Because of low energy and lapse in routine, I've not picked up my stretching habit again. I think I might do another 30 day challenge for April as I find them very motivating!
