WEEK 1 – The Journey Begins

I am taking my first step in a six month journey of self-discovery and transformation.  It’s called Master Keys Mastermind Alliance (MMKMA).  There’s a voice inside my head asking, why, at the age of 63 would you want to embark on a journey to improve yourself?  Why challenge what you already know?  Life has been good so far, why rock the boat?

Because I know I can do better.  I can be better.  After I applied for this course while waiting to find out if I was accepted, I read through blog posts of those who had followed this path before me.  Their stories filled me with hope that I can change how I am in the world.

I am beginning from a place of stuckness.  I’m sure that’s not a real word, but it best describes my state of mind.  I am so excited to be learning new, good habits to replace my old, bad habits and I will be set free to create a life I love.

This doesn’t mean that I don’t already love my life.  God has abundantly blessed me.  I have a wonderful husband, beautiful, loving children, amazing grandchildren.  I have shelter, and warmth, my cupboards are filled with food.  I am thankful and filled with gratitude every day for all of my blessings and that I was born in the USA, where there are abundant opportunities to create a great life.

So, here I sit writing my first blog entry, which is one of our homework assignments for the week.  I’ve never had a problem putting my thoughts onto paper, it’s like I’m having a conversation with a friend.  I have another assignment due this week, to write my Definite Major Purpose (DMP).

Wait. . . what?  Talk about being stuck!  And if I plan to continue in this course, I must complete this assignment.  Not doing it is not an option.  “I always keep my promises” is one of my new key phrases and I’ve promised myself that I will have completed this assignment before I sleep tonight.

What is my purpose in life?  What is my bliss?  What have I gotten myself into?  There’s part of me resisting this like crazy.  It was suggested that I have fun writing my DMP.  I think that sounds like a great idea.  I will be a lot easier if I make it fun and pleasurable.  It’s all in your perspective.

What have you resisted and how have you got unstuck?  I’d love to hear your thoughts.

In gratitude,

Joyce
