I was just thinking about "To Do Lists" which are tiring and overwhelming for most of us with Fibromyalgia.  

Let's make "My Accomplishments Today" list and list the things you have accomplished during the day. At the end of the day our list will make us feel good....


To Do:
  • Vacumn
  • Clean bathroom 
  • Do Washing 
  • Plan and cook meals 
  • Do Dishes

I Accomplished:
  • made bed
  • Got dressed
  • Straightened Counter Top and cleaned toilet in Bathroom, cleaned sink
  • made breakfast
  • put dishes in dish washer
  • vacuumed one room (do the rest off and on during the week)
  • Fixed Lunch
  • Put Dishes in Dishwasher
  • Washed & dried whites from the dirty clothes basket.
  • Folded and hung clothes
  • Fixed dinner (hubby put dishes into dishwasher, started dishwasher)
  • Played on computer and watched TV

Wow, what a different way of looking at what we can accomplish in a day.. The second list would make me feel really good as any accomplishment we can achieve in a day makes this Fibro World a much nicer one.

Too often we are beating up on ourselves about how little we got done due to the pain and fatigue of Fibro. Let's start turning it around and find ourselves much happier.
Hope you all like this idea, too.
