I do think there's a problem. They are following their bliss, true, but *they* are not happy with the results they get. And when I said my dad's been doing this my whole life I should mention I'm 37. A lot of years of jumping into things and *not* being happy with the results. And, like I said, neither of them connect it to themselves, they see it as "bad luck" or other people. Mostly other people Which is probably why they are both so upbeat since *they* never do anything wrong

I know this isn't what we're doing here, I was just wondering how it related since on the surface it does look similar.
You didn't hit a nerve with me at all! But I'm not sure my point got driven home. (Probably because I rambled too much about my own stuff. ) What I'm saying is so what? So what if he's reckless or if he's always blaming someone else, or never happy, or... That's his work! Trust that he's exactly where he needs to be, learning exactly what he wants to learn. He can't get it wrong!

You following your bliss has absolutely nothing to do with what your father does. If it looks the same from the outside, so what?

But for a more positive note . . . . . look what I did today! And it's because of you guys that I got off my butt and actually did it! The pictures are clickable to make them bigger. I'm going to do the other walls in the next two weekends (it took longer than I thought). And then . . . . then . . . .I've had this idea for awhile to paint or stencil a garden scene in the tiny, gray bathroom. Maybe that should be next
That is amazing! Wow!!

I LOVE this!! I've always wanted to be like Samantha from Bewitched, wiggling my nose and making stuff happen. This is totally up my alley! (Though maybe I'll visualize magically using the telephone to call someone to come and clean my house for me. )

Yes! It is always about what we are allowing into our own experience! You go girl!

Very cool! I did two murals on my walls in my house before I met dh (that was during my manifesting mania time too! ) No coincidence! I think I need to get painting again! (In my spare time. )

Hey, great idea! I'm going to try that.

btw, today is my day of productivity.

I have received my divine inspiration. First I'm going to clean this office and get to WORK. At 9:30.

Procrastination?

Any thoughts on procrastinating? I would love to hear what you all have to say on this. (And I will come back and add my own two cents when the kids allow it!!)

I'm procrastinating right now. I'm listening to the Joe Vitale Masters of the Secret recording but I should be getting ready for work. I think I will get off my butt and lift some weights and stretch while I listen.

Good Morning!

You didn't hit a nerve with me, I thought we were just exploring the difference. I'm fuzzy on why it matter what they are doing or whether or not there is a *problem*. For each of us, our work is ourselves, not our extended family.

I think that a lot of times things can look similar on the surface, but be completely different. What the loa is about is getting inside our own heads to make our lives the way we want them. There's nothing surface about that!

Up til now, I've had a desire to judge other people and the way they live their lives. I no longer see the point of that. The point of my life is for me to feel good and do things that I enjoy.

Ok, am I the only one sort of stunned at the idea of iPod vending machines? That is so weird! But totally cool for you Linda
I think it is weird too! I think it is really really cool that the only iPod vending machine is in terminal 1 of the Atlanta airport, right where my DH would walk past it during a 2 1/2 hour lay over!

What if between the 2 of us, we manifested the actual machine!

Do you set aside little bits of time for yourself during the day? A morning mediation, or a midmorning cup of herbal tea and mothering.com? Something?

Fun idea!

I've been manifesting a calm and orderly home. It is a tricky manifestation because I already knew how to have it that way by being really hard on myself, but I am manifesting having it that way while enjoying the process -- while loving myself, feeling blessed to have my family, and feeling gratitude for all we have.

After DH accepted the new job on Friday (which means we are moving before long) I really wanted to kick it into high great and declutter. I decided to manifest some decluttering motivation. About an hour later, the DAV called and asked if we had anything to donate because they are doing a pick up in our neighborhood on Wednesday. It was so cool! It was like the universe was giving me enough time to really dig in, but setting up a deadline to help motivate me!

And I have my new iPod to wear while I work (which makes everything more fun!). I made a lot of progress yesterday, I will do even more to do. I'm assigning the girls a particular kind of toy each day to organize -- yesterday they did dolls, today is lego.

I know that so many wonderful things are on their way into our lives, and I'm clearing out the stuff that no longer brings us joy to make room.

I LOVE THIS! This is my new mentality. I'm not procrastinating, I'm pausing and building energy. Fab!

Procrastination doesn't really exist. It indicates a 'lack of action,' as does laziness (which also doesn't exist).

In reality, it is impossible for humans to exist in a state of non-action.

If you sit on your butt and watch TV instead of doing your "chore," then that's an action, a choice. You are ACTIVELY choosing on a continual basis to perform the action of sitting on your butt watching TV.

In order to overcome the inertia of CHOOSING to delay something, you must first recognize everything as a choice. So, stop yourself periodically and ask yourself, "Am I making a strengthening decision that will further my goals, or am I making a weakening decision that will take me further away from my goals?"

When you percieve yourself as "procrastinating," what you are really doing is making consistent weakening decisions.

Every weakening decision you make makes it easier to make weakening choices. Every strengthening decision you make, makes it easier to make strengthening choices on a more consistent basis.

So each time you think of making a strong decision and it seems difficult, remind yourself, "Just do it this time. Next time, it will be easier." And so on.

Procrastination and laziness are the state of making continual bad choices:

These two quotes are my favorite on this issue:

Success is a matter of a few simple disciplines, practiced every day. Failure is a few errors in judgement, repeated every day.
- Jim Rohn

First comes the thought; then comes the word.
The word becomes the deed, and eventually the deed becomes habit.
Slowly, habit hardens into character.

I'm totally lost after not checking in much over the weekend.
Just subscribing here...

I think I'll mostly be in lurk/skim mode until an actual LoA forum is manifested.
I just can't keep up with these mega-threads.

Here I am again!

I had today planned to work on my site. I was all set. Inspired! Anxious (in a good way) and Ready!

Problems.

The hosting co. is having "issues" and so I can't get in to work on it.

:

Boy, oh boy, when I am finally able to get going on this, it is going to be INCREDIBLE!

Off to work on another project. . . . I'll check in in about . . . 10 minutes?

Humph. I liked Sepia's theory much better!

Just kidding, of course... Amris, you always manage to call me right out on things and not let me get away with ANYTHING! Kira's going to be in big trouble when she gets older... you'll see right through her! Tee hee. Of course, she will just turn out all the more wonderful and perfect for having you as a mom

See above re: the party mentality -- don't try to keep up, just go with the flow!

What time qualifies as morning? : I took the day off today, in order to be productive at home. So far... not happening. But it's only 10 am.

Help me get in the right mindset for doing my What If and my Love homework from Captain Crunchy!!

I just can't seem to get started... should I watch something funny to raise my vibration? Rampage appreciation? Virtual Realities? All of the above?
