We are adding a new weekly section to the website  called Working Your Gratitude and Trust. While we all know we are working on things and we have the concepts in our heads we don’t always work our G and T as well as we could. I know I don’t.   We are all human, busy, preoccupied and often just get lazy.  So to keep us working our Gratitude and Trust, we will start the week by giving you something to focus on.

This week, we are going to work on Who’s So0ning Who?  Or perhaps for some of us, it is what have you been sooning?

In Paul Williams speak, ask yourself if  you are presently a Someday Man or a maybe child? 

If so – get out that paper. Number it one through five.

Start with one being the most important and five obviously the one that needs the least attention.  If you don’t have five, you are a head of the game. If there is just one, that is fine too.  But there is no question we all have something or things we are shoving out of the way to deal with at a later date.

So let’s work our G and T and tackle the ones that are bugging us the most.  Look at the things you really need to address. It’s the most important first step you can take.

Then write down five ways you can get moving on it.  And start today. You know how to do it. You’re just sooning. And the only person you are sooning is yourself.

I know for me, I promised myself way back when I would meditate every morning.  Remember when I announced that?  Well, I suck at it. I do. I bought tapes. I bought books. I even bought a brain wave monitor that makes noises when your mind wanders and charts how well you are actually meditating while you are meditating. If you happen to be actually meditating, which I have not.

I even enlisted a meditation pal to keep me on track, well guess what – neither one of us is doing it. I know this as we conveniently never mention it.

Today is Monday. Monday is an actual day. And I’m making yet another stab at getting this down and making it a part of my daily regime.

The good news is here at G and T we work a day at a time. So I have messed up the last seventy days of my plan. Okay, in all fairness I  did meditate five times  Five days out of seventy.  That is pretty sucky if you ask me. I’m not proud.

But I have a new chance. I also have several other things I have not been dealing with as well as I would like. They are on the list too.

So let’s stop sooning and start doing the work. We know we are much happier when we do.

Think of this as a friendly shove in the right direction.
