When you start hitting walls and obstacles, what do you do? Do you stop? Try to go around? Go straight through no matter what? I was tempted to do all of these this past week.
Thanksgiving week can be challenging for many people. Mark cautioned us to be prepared as most would be around family members who could trigger the old blueprint. Well, that wasn’t my case. We didn’t have a big family celebration, and that was what triggered my old blueprint. Feeling lonely, left out, forgotten. Definitely don’t scroll through Facebook seeing everyone else’s family celebrations if you face this. LOL! It’ll cause tears. We haven’t had a family Thanksgiving in years, though we had planned to be with my son and my mom for this year’s except we couldn’t find a pet sitter for our geriatric cats. I now know to be more prepared for Christmas! 🙂
The passing of David Cassidy this past week was also challenging. It may sound silly to mourn a childhood crush, but I did. A friend had shared that it was losing a piece of innocence from our childhoods. In one of his last interviews, David disclosed he’d had been dealing with dementia like his grandfather and his mother had, and that he knew it was coming for him. Of course he did…he helped create it. That somehow made it even sadder to me and made me even more determined to be aware of my thoughts.
Needless to say, the mental diet has been started many times over this week.
This became my go-to phrase over and over and over…
I printed this out and have it posted several places in my home. A reminder to me and anyone who sees it that we do have the power to create anything we want!
