Thankfully this week has been less stressful and emotional than week 5. I got back into my routine and am seeing how my old blueprint is being rewritten…and I really like the person I am becoming.
On Sunday, the part of the webcast about procrastination and how that is a reflection of how we feel about our future self BLEW MY MIND! It was on my mind all week long. It took me till about Thursday to wrap my thoughts fully around it. It makes so much sense! I had never thought of procrastination this way. Yet, now I can hardly think of it any other way. Writing the press release was a way of falling in love with that woman I am becoming and I’m so excited to catch up with her!
In a way, I was a little sad to bid farewell to the daily reading of Scroll 1 of The Greatest Salesman in the World. We had become good friends over the month of October. But when I began reading Scroll 2 on Wednesday, I realized that my friendships were expanding. As Og says, “I will greet this day with love in my heart” and I greet this scroll with the same love. I even added this statement (minus the “will”) to my affirmations I have recorded and say daily.
The no voicing of opinion has been a challenge. As a former teacher, I am so used to sharing what I’m thinking. I can be pretty blunt that way! LOL! Maybe I need to find an positive way to affirm that I have no opinions and add that to my affirmations to say!
Putting together my movie poster was SO MUCH FUN!
I also really got into the exercise to put up reminders of my DMP around my house. One portion of my DMP is an annual trip to Hawaii, so I have reminders of Hawaii all over my house now! There’s a colorful lei on my desk (with the red, blue, green, and yellow from the shapes), a palm tree table centerpiece on top of my desk hutch, Hawaiian flowers around the house, and photos of the gorgeous blue waters of Maui at my desk and my bedside. I also wear the compass and have one visible at my desk and another hanging from my car rear view mirror as a reminder to make choices based on where I’m going. I had shared the meaning of this in a Facebook Live this week, and one of my former students was so inspired, she’s bought her own compass and she’s decided to go back to school to move forward toward her goals. Mark and Davene, you’re impacting more and more lives with the MKMMA program!
To say I’m thankful for taking the steps to begin MKMMA seems woefully inadequate of all that’s in my heart over what I have experienced. My heart overflows with love and appreciation for this experience!
