Well, I found a couple minutes to do the placemat exercise this morning; first attempt, ds interrupted, but then dh was reading him a book, and I seized the moment. There's very little on my side and a lot on the Universe's side, including getting the kitty to use the box, and getting me into a good mood. And I am feeling a lot better than yesterday....

I like it, because it reminded me of how I once met a guy at a party and when he was leaving he was talking to somebody else about his upcoming drive home to CA (from MA), and how he was going to camp out in the desert... and I said "Want a passenger?" and he gave me his phone number.
Later, while I was living in CA, sometimes when people asked me "So what brought you to California?" I'd tell them the truth "A cute guy with a van!"

Recently that movie was playing in a kids' consignment shop where ds and I were, and I caught the part with the dancing chimney sweeps, and then Mary Poppins takes the kids inside and their dad is all sputtering and demands that she explain herself. Mary turns around, with a big smudge of soot on her cheek, and says Let me make one thing clear; I never
dsd says when she was little (she's 14 now) Mary Poppins was her favorite movie because there was no bad guy.

Otherwise you'll get completely drowned in all the wonderful thoughts and discussions.

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.
Wow, Amris. That is so true!

Boy, oh boy, when I am finally able to get going on this, it is going to be INCREDIBLE!
By Thursday morning Mercury will be direct!
(and maybe the banana will start moving again!
) Until then, re-think, re-try, re-consider, re-quest more info. etc.
And during the many minutes it took me to type this post, the universe definitely fulfilled my request to get me buzzing; I was
and ds stopped looked over my shoulder at the bananas in the hanging baskets and said "Buh Buh Buh Buh Banna!" I laughed and said it back at him, lifting him into the air on Banna! and at his request did this over and over, with different tones and tunes until we were both in fits of giggles. Vibration raised.
