In the past, I've been plagued with misplacing items and squandering time searching for items I need in order to complete tasks. This adds great stress, as well as chastizing myself for disorganization. Yesterday, I set out to work on a response to an opposing brief in a big case, which will affect many litigants in a large state. I am stressed by the responsibility of this case, and could not find the brief. I looked every where I could think of and went through many files, thinking it had gotten caught on some other paperwork. I was bummed.
I remember reading something Mary wrote, about thinking "Here it is" instead of "where is it?" I posted a request to my master mind group and the message board asking for my mind to be focused on "Here it is!" I then decided to work on other items, not on the top of my original list, and every time I thought about the item, said to myself [in a peppy voice] "Here is is!" I had a calm and productive evening.
Well, this morning, I thought to myself, as I walked by a pile of clothes, by the laundry basket, I think I'll lift this sweatshirt and THERE IT WAS!
