Week 3 – Do It Now — How?


I think I need to give my subby a little caveat — I don’t think I must do it ALL right now, or I will get overwhelmed! Then MasterKey Paul Straw gave a great talk on “Pay It Forward” at our local Successful Thinkers group yesterday that pushed my subby into overdrive — go help someone by giving them what you’ve been storing for years!  do it now…do it now…do it now…do it now…

Okay, subby, just cool it! I still have to eat, sleep, work, and too many other things I don’t want to think about. So I will (oops–no will) — my next chore will be (oops again) IS to take something out of storage to give to Salvation Army.

So the good news is I finally figured out how to do my About You page — twice, since I hit the wrong something once in trying to edit and had to start all over.  In spite of the frustration in not knowing a thing about any of this social media, it is fun to be learning something new. (The Digital Connection training is awesome — just wish my brain could keep up! It looks so easy when they do it) The only thing that concerns me is that I can lose hours just looking at the internet I already know about — this is almost more temptation than human beings should be asked to bear!

More good news — the time spent sitting combined with concentrating on the new more self-confident me has resulted in two new clients this week, with an additional two prospects that have asked me to call over the weekend. I guess I could say it is good news/bad news — in all the work I’ve been attracting, I’ve somehow lost the time to sit still a couple of times, and am just getting my homework in at the last minute. I especially like the reading out loud;  it has really helped me refine my DMP. What looks good on paper sounds so different when read aloud. Then as I rewrite, more changes just appear — could good old subby be at work here?  Also, has anyone else been challenged by sitting upright and letting muscles “take their normal condition” without moving?

Now, I’m off to read what wisdom and insights and trials team mates have to tell — everyone’s story is so unique, yet we all have so much in common — just makes life such a joy to get acquainted!  Have a blessed week!

Who am I? I have to think about that...a loner who really likes people, a "tomboy" more comfortable in jeans who enjoys dressiing up, a country girl who is fascinated by city life (for a few minutes anyway), a writer who would rather read, a homebody who looks forward to traveling (my goal next year-a river cruise in Portugal), a conservative with a liberal heart, a Bible student intrigued by the new mind other words, a simple 74-year-old full of contradictions, still trying to decide what I want to be when I grow up. Also, must confess to being addicted to Coast-2-Coast radio when I can't sleep (except October, when the dark side takes over).

  1. Love they way you cover all the things that are running through my mind. So wonderful you see results. Funny that with more business coming your way there seems to be even less time to continue the work…..but you are. Great example you are for others.


  2. You are Doing It, one step at a time, one new thing, becoming more familiar, in the midst of the fullness of your living! In the fullness, cracks of light shedding new awareness to the truth of You. A beautiful new Birth.


  3. Sounds like you are chipping away at the cement…Way cool! Keep chipping.


  4. I, like you, have had my challenges with the whole social media things but I must admit that I have figured things out which really feels good.
    I love the giving and receiving card this week. Can’t wait to give it a try.
    Congrats on your new clients
    You are doing what needs to be done and that’s what counts. Keep it up.


  5. Hahah, wonderful blog!
    Don’t worry about the sit, that it feels uncomfortable….it does, in the beginning:-)
    But then…after a bit over a month you will feel how you go deeper into yourself and the body doesn’t feel either comfortable or uncomfortable anymore, because you simply don’t “think” of it anymore, you don’t “feel” it, just your inner YOU:-)
    I’ve been doing meditation for some time, and I remember how awful it was in the beginning, everything is just “in the wrong place” and needs to move every 2:nd minute 😀 But very nice when that disapears.


    • Thank you for your encouragement — I’m happy to report that I’m now enjoying this “escape” – I’ve been upping the time every few days, and today, my 18-minute timer went off way too soon! So 20 minutes tomorrow! Blessings!
