Throughout these last 23 weeks Ive been stretched, pushed, pulled, fallen down, spoken aloud to myself more times that I can count, stressed, happy, sad, excited, written blogs, learned about twitter, learned life lessons, found my voice within and learned to appreciate silence (something I NEVER thought possible!!)….. needless to say it has been challenging…. would I change a thing… no way. Would I do it again…. absolutely!!
I received an email this week which really hit home for me with all we have been learning:
From where I sit, it is a mystery to me, Amber, how so many can look back on their past with pride, yet frown with disappointment at their present. Somehow forgetting that back then, they were just as self-critical, while somehow missing that today they’ve never, ever, been so close to all they’ve ever wanted.
You’ve also never been as good-looking as you are today, Amber. But tell me, please, you could see this for yourself?
Just think about that for a moment, how often do we look back at our past and think, how good we “used” to have it or “used” to look…. but at that point in time in our lives we did not recognise that fact!!
The combination of reading this week from Og and Haanel is really continuing to solidify everything we have been taught so far (and what we continue to learn). Engaging the law of least effort has been a really amazing experience, its surprising how you can look at so differently once we choose to!
The ‘little’ things which used to bother me, no longer do, they seem so insignificant that I almost giggle at my past feelings toward them! Being grateful for EVERY situation changes things in a way that I almost can not put into words!
Remembering, thanks to Og, that, “Today I AM master of my emotions” and correlating this with our lessons throughout the MKMMA I now have a favourite new morning checklist….
Each day, when I awaken, I follow this plan of battle before I am captured by the forces of sadness, self-pity and failure….
If I feel depressed I sing (or listen to my recording and sing along)
If I feel sad I laugh (reading past fun/nice experiences)
If I feel ill I double my labour (power of your mind)
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead (do it… when?!!… NOW)
If I feel inferior I wear new garments (I particularly like this one!!)
If I feel uncertain I raise my voice
If I feel poverty I think of wealth to come (law of substitution)
If I feel incompetent I remember past success (thanks to our cards!)
If I feel insignificant I remember my goals (thanks to our shapes and colours)
Today, I AM master of my emotions
I am honored, I am grateful and I am blessed.
I wish you kindness and happiness today – YOU are the master of your emotions!
