Week 3 Hey Subby! I’m HEALTHY!

I’ve noticed a difference in my attitude in week 3! Yes, I’m still a bit overwhelmed and fighting with my old blueprint but I’m also getting  hopeful!  I started to get excited as I read and understood MKE part 3.  It was like a light went on in my brain! The power of the subconscious mind is truly amazing and spectacular. In writing my DMP I kept stating that I’ve overcome the symptoms of my illness.  To me that made sense because I was accepting of the fact that it’s incurable, but positive enough to not let it define me.   Conquering the symptoms seemed like a positive dream.  Being symptom free  would create a much better quality of life.  When my guide returned it, I realized my thinking wasn’t positive enough.  I then decided that I would be the ‘first person to be cured of this disease!’ BAM! That should be a winner with my subconscious mind AKA subby! Again, it came back that subby thinks disease is a negative word. Hmmm.  DIS-EASE, yes that could be a big fat negative.  After reading part 3, I had my answer.  Anything is possible! “A knowledge of our ability to consciously RADIATE HEALTH, STRENGTH and harmony will bring us into a realization that there is nothing to fear because we are in touch with INFINITE STRENGTH!” BAM AGAIN!!!!  It’s so simple.  I am healthy PERIOD! Take that subby! I am HEALTHY!!!!!!   

Week 2 The guest from tomorrow!

Week 2 has been quite challenging. I had a guest from Australia staying in my home in South Carolina.  The weird part about this guest is that we met on Facebook in 2008 through an internet business.  The business failed, i.e., they closed their doors overnight, but our friendship remained.  When she told me she was coming to visit I felt quite uncomfortable because we had never met in person.  I think my husband thought I was crazy for inviting a stranger to sleep under our roof. Actually, I never invited her, but I kept telling her that it’s on my bucket list to meet her one day. My husband doesn’t understand social media or why I didn’t say no.   We have recently moved, and he wasn’t quite thrilled about having to install window coverings in the guest room we hadn’t intended to utilize for at least 6 months.

The visit itself, is a story for another blog but trying to explain my activities to her was quite strange.  I said, “You’ll be hearing me say “Do it now” about 50 times a day.  I’ll also be interrupting our activities to read 3 times a day plus I’ll be reading my life’s purpose 3 times a day.”  I was proud that I interrupted our visit often to do my “homework”, however, I had a difficult time concentrating knowing she was just outside the door waiting for me.  I’m concerned that I fell asleep from entertaining exhaustion and missed one night of my homework.  Hopefully, no damage was done to my progress.  Yes, I always keep my promises except when I’m just too exhausted and stressed.  I’ve been feeling an abnormal amount of anxiety since I started this course.  I’m not sure if it’s my old blueprint fighting the new one, anxiety over her visit (she left today) or just being overwhelmed in general.  Time will tell.

Week 1 If not now..when?

I was hesitant to go on this journey of self discovery.  I’ve read so many self help books through the years and very little changed.

Initially I thought I’d look into this as a way to get better results with my business.  Since I love what I do and I’m truly on a mission to change the health of a generation (my company’s mission), I thought it might be worth it just for that reason.

I’ve already changed some lives by sharing my products, but the possibility of changing thousands of lives, including my own, is very enticing.  When I applied for the scholarship with this pay it forward training, I was slightly intimidated by the requirements but pushed through.

But, when I found out it’s a 6 month, 7 day a week commitment, I thought to myself – nope, I don’t have the time.  Then I heard this wasn’t a typical training course because  it could change your life….  Did I really want to change my life? I had to ponder that for awhile.  Who would I change into? A better person? They say I’m a good person now. Did I really want to dig deep inside to find out who I am after so many decades on the planet?

I think I’m a bit afraid to dig too deep. Suppose I find out something unpleasant about myself? I’ve always felt that I never lived up to my potential.  Suppose I find out that there’s no more potential. That I’ve used up all of my gifts.

And then it hit me! In order for me to change other’s lives for the better… I need to change and become better too.  But was this the right way to do it… 7 days a week for 6 months?  And then my favorite 4 words popped into my head ‘IF NOT NOW, WHEN?’

Throughout my married life, whenever I hesitated to make a change, those words are what my husband always  used to remind me that we shouldn’t delay our dreams, plans, hopes and adventures. Tomorrow is promised to no one. Sometime opportunities only arrive one time.

With that in mind I decided to go for it.  I’m actually glad to blog about it as I’m excited to document my journey to find out who I can become.  Hopefully, the best that I can be…. with a good shot to become as happy and fulfilled as possible and then pay it forward.

 

 

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
