    Great thread idea startingnew :)

    Today, I am proud that I was able to cook something healthy, do some housework and that I didn't feel the need to sleep during the day.

    I'm proud of myself today for telling a very close friend, instead of just a psychologist, about my self harm recently. Was afraid of being judged, but she was amazing :) Will still never tell my family though!

    I'm proud that I didn't sleep in until midday again, I cooked a healthy dinner, and prepped salad for lunch tomorrow.

    Well done startingnew :)

    Proud of myself for finishing my notetaking/revision for one exam. Just need to do a recording to listen too, if I do one (not sure it's worthwhile yet).

    Hey everyone and Welcome Spacemountain....great to have you posting with us :-)

    I am proud that I actually replaced the dead light bulb (brake light) in my XR8 on my own without relying on the Ford Dealership that I have been using since 1989.....and yes Im serious!

    Spacemountain......that is something to be proud of and good on you!

    Hey SN....finishing a 10 page research assignment is not easy....Nice1 :-)

    Hey MF....You are and always have been an achiever....Good1 on your notetaking/revision....I hope you think that doing that recording is worthwhile too!

    Have a really good day everyone

    Great thread :)

    I’m proud of myself for going to my first job interview ever. To be honest, I’ve been dreading going into the working world, having graduated last December, but I tell myself I should try to make a start.

    Really don’t know how it’s gonna go, but I just tell myself this is a good start.

    Good luck Julie :)

    And if you don't get the job, you'll have plenty more practise. I personally HATE job interviews, I get too anxious

    Thank you for the encouragement!

    Oh yes, they are really scary. I had a hard time sleeping the night before :/

    Glad that you have finished your uni activities before the long weekend! You deserve a good rest

    Once again Starts a great thread!

    Today I am proud of myself for ...

    Speaking up and finally having the courage to let my partner know how much he isolates me from things that should be corporate as they should be in a marriage. Look forward to the day when it won't take much effort to say something that usually gets ignored.

    Today I am grateful for:

    -the cycling group I have recently joined

    - my housemate for going for a walk with me to get us out of the house

    - dad for coming up to see tomorrow because I have been a bit down of late

    Today I’m proud of myself for being a rock for my partner when she stresses.

    im also proud of myself for continuing to learn to relax and let go of the little things that I’d normally obsess over.

    Hello everyone

    I know this read has not been used fir a while but I just needed it now as I often think of ways I have messed up but today I feel pleased if not proud.

    My daughter has just visited me and it was very enjoyable , I listened, I did not lecture and i tried not to be over sensitive and over react .

    I wonder what you are proud of doing recently.

    Quirky
