I’m not a quitter… that is one thing I do know about myself. However, sometimes I have pushed on with jobs that didn’t make sense for me or relationships that I knew were not good for me because I didn’t want to quit. Knowing when to quit and when to continue is an important life skill that is difficult to teach. The hardest part, I guess, is wanting a certain outcome and thinking that if I just try harder then it will come.
The ability to choose your reaction to events and to have more of the right “control” is what can make the difference between continuing in a certain direction or changing course. I am very thankful that I am more aware of my thoughts and am choosing more positive ones. I still haven’t been able to go an entire day without a negative thought, but when I have them and substitute a positive one, I feel so much better!
One thing I’ve learned from MKMMA is that instead of focusing on the how — the now -and trying to control every step — that it is important to focus on the goals and know that you will get there with your new blueprint operating in the background. When I look at my shapes posters with the goals and read them I have to quiet my anxiety when I wonder how it will all happen and just trust that it will. The feeling I have when I am able to do that quickly is one of peace. Exciting to trust myself instead of “working” so hard at it. Or, should I say, it’s just working in a more natural way.
I would like to know how others in the class are able to turn off the TV for a week with others living with them who are addicted to it!
