Magic can happen!
Now, I’ve never been what you call a self-disciplined person. I guess I’m a true right brainer — my awareness is usually grappling with multiple ideas and random thoughts: Where do those birds nest at night? What color should I paint my office walls? Should I take a walk to see the Mother Tree? My cat needs brushing — I wonder what I could do with the fur? Etc., Etc., Etc.. Then my left brain attempts to make sense of it all and navigate a course to get things done in time — or done at all. Guilt, self-judgment, and self-abusive thoughts are often for me the final motivators of getting practical things done. It has not been easy. Sigh.
