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?

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.

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.

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!

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.

but everything has pros and cons  shrug.gif

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

Has it been 10 minutes?

I think it is Hicks that says in the book I'm reading now to just do *something*. Anything. Clean off your desk (I just did!) Stand up and move, anything at all. Then get going on your project.

Take a page from Nike, sweetheart. Just do it.

Seriously. Just sit down, and get started. It may not be easy, but it really IS simple.

Put all of your focus on it, and just "git 'er done."

Like I said, it's a choice. Are you gonna do it, or are you gonna sit around wondering why you aren't doing it? Both are an active choice....

I do really want to do it, I guess I am too afraid of not doing it right! Or, I guess I should say, doing it the best I possibly can. But that's ridiculous. OF COURSE it will be the best!

Meanwhile, I just made a lunch date with this HOT guy I met yesterday, so I'm pretty psyched. And oddly, he has one of my two favorite first names and the last name I have always thought would sound really nice with my name... a manifestation, perhaps? :

I have been meaning to ask this for a while. Do you think it hurts or helps me to hang out/date guys that I know I won't end up with, but are fun and amusing in the now? Am I blocking my soul mate by spending time with guys who aren't? I don't mean anything committed or long-term, but I don't usually turn down dinner invitations and there may sometimes be a good night kiss or two... :

That party analogy was great. Thank you. I will just do what I can.

WuWei, I did follow your link, and consentual living pretty much sums up our family pre-foster care. I can not parent the foster kids in this way. They are dealing with HUGE issues that cause them to lie, hoard, and generally infringe upon others. I don't want to have seperate rules for them, but I also don't want to infringe upon my own kids with rules needed by the foster kids. For the record, pre-foster care I would have argued that I could parent them the same way. I was wrong. Consentual living asumes a normal baseline, and these kids are still on survival skills on the Maslow scale.

In other news, I told DH that I wanted to learn how to run and immediatly saw a learn to run challenge that I started. Yea!

Also, the whole "who you are is not who you are but who you were" just hit me last night. I love it. The now was created by the past, and right now I am shaping my future. Awesome!

Meanwhile, I just made a lunch date with this HOT guy I met yesterday, so I'm pretty psyched. And oddly, he has one of my two favorite first names and the last name I have always thought would sound really nice with my name... a manifestation, perhaps? :

I have been meaning to ask this for a while. Do you think it hurts or helps me to hang out/date guys that I know I won't end up with, but are fun and amusing in the now? Am I blocking my soul mate by spending time with guys who aren't? I don't mean anything committed or long-term, but I don't usually turn down dinner invitations and there may sometimes be a good night kiss or two... :
No - I think you need to do the "obligatory dating" thing before you find the right one. I read that in a book once but don't remember which one.

I do think that if it turns into more than just *dating* then you'd be stopping the process of finding the right one.

So. . if you think there's potential, I mean *really feeeel it* then continue dating the person. If you don't, then move on to the next.

You'll know. If there is a question like, maaaybe he's okay, or maaaybe he'd be the right one, cut him off now. There are no *maybes* when you've found the right one.

Thanks for all the comments on the wall and thank y'all for helping me figure out what I was wanting and get doing it

I freehanded the whole thing with the paintbrush. Which is why if you were here you'd see that my style at the beginning is a bit different from the style at the end, But you have to look to really see it.

Oh yes, please! And I like what someone else said about conversations at a party. Let go of any guilt you may have at not being able to respond to every single person/post. Just jump in and go with the flow

Can we explore this for a minute? The idea that everything that everyone does is what they are meant to do and be. Is that really a LOA idea or are we getting into something else now because I've heard others say that too. If everything we're already doing is what we are meant to do, why try to change? Why learn about the LOA and try to manifest things and attitudes? I feel like this : when I hear this.

Ooooo, see that resonates with me. But then that goes with my concerns on being "reckless" doesn't it? I sometimes do things quickly but I'd say mostly I "build up energy". The problem is that sometimes I get stuck in the "building up energy" part I guess.

Oh yeah I agree, but that wasn't my point in discussing it. I said a little of this on the other thread (the one that isn't locked yet ). The reason I'm looking at them is not because I want to change them, but because I'm figuring out what I do and do not want in life. The way my father and BIL manage their financial lives is an example to me of what I do not want so I take note of the things they do that lead them to the outcomes I don't want to have.

In another example, I talk to the women on this list about things they are doing. On the one hand you could say that's them, not me and it doesn't matter to my life, but on the other hand, I am being inspired by them to figure out what I want to do and be so it does matter to me.

I don't think it's my business changing other people but I do think I can be inspired by others. "Inspired" meaning either inspired to emulate them or inspired to do things differently.

That's why I thought of "reckless action". I don't know if they are having bad results because they are "reckless" or because they aren't grateful, or because they focus too much on money or what. I just know I don't want to follow that path and I'd like to learn from them what not to do if I can. Does that make sense to anyone?

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.
Ooooo, I got warm fuzzies there
