MKMMA Week 11: “The Battle of My Brains!”
This is a week of wonderful personal changes and new beginnings but tethered by the remnants of the old blueprint … More of a thoughtfulness of the place I now find myself in … a good place.
We keep talking about ‘blueprints’ in MKMMA but not paper ones, invisible ones that live in our minds which each day take us on ‘auto pilot’ through our days …
I wonder if I am the only one who wonders about why and how I got to this place in life, doing things without a thought. It is like wake sleepwalking … I get to the end of the day, ‘been busy but not got much done?’ Crazy eh?
Working through MKMMA, I now see the ‘errors of my way’, well really the way of the world around me that I have jumped on board with. Just part of the crowd and lost in the shuffle … Now I am stepping out and taking my place in the sun and radiating my true self.
It sounds odd but so many of us, including me have lived our lives following rather than leading … Do you want to be a leader? I want to lead even if it is only in my life. It is about taking charge and responsibility.
I won’t say it is easy or there is no work. I would be lying. The tools and requirements for the course are simple but you have to do the work. For me it is a struggle with the past me and present me that I work on each day … It is easy to slip into complacency and the way it was, because it is known even if it is not great.
The new me is different. It is like a pair of new shoes that have to be broken in … just don’t feel right or comfortable yet. I know once they are broken in they will be comfortable, but it is the moments before that I begin to question, will they fit? Will they be comfortable? Maybe I should give up and put my old shoes on … This is the old blueprint creeping in to pull you back. Knowing this, it is easier to say no and keep wearing those shoes or that new blueprint until they are comfortable.
It is in the persistence that I know they will fit … that the new me will fit and I will be comfortable but for a moment until that next opportunity to grow presents itself.
All I can say is- if you have a chance to do the MKMMA, take it! It is a gift and you will never look back …Living life forward!!!
Love the words of the song from Frozen, take a moment to listen to the words … Let it go … Let it go … I am one with the wind and stars …
A wish of health, happiness and prosperity always,
P.S. I always keep my promises!
