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.
