Using my Toolkit

I am recovering and feel better today. In retrospect I got busy.Real busy. Then I stopped using one of the most important tools in my kit. The daily practise of quiet time, prayer, meditation, sitting in the silence, whatever I choose to call it. The name is not important but the practise is. It is the difference between practising the problem or practising the solution.

Sometimes the size of my tool kit overwhelms me and I get stuck with indecision – the paralysis of analysis. This is the time to ” just pick one. ” “Use it.”  Everything turns around from there. My  best tool is the  “take the time” tool. Next is the  “gratitude” tool. invaluable but totally useless if I don’t use them. Have a great day!

    • i think that is why I share it. First it reinforces the right action (or in this case, inaction) in myself , and secondly, it may help others.The first picture is at Honeymoon Lake on the Icefields parkway, and the second photo is at the toe of Athabasca Glacier at the Icefields..

    Glad you are feeling better. How often we forget to “take the time” in our busy lives, thanks for the reminder.

  6. Every day I think of one thing I am grateful for, it can be large or tiny. It helps.
