Let me share a quick funny story.
When I started the MKMMA, we were required to setup a blog site. In doing so, I planned to have a dedicated email for my MKMMA journey, so I setup a new gmail account. Naturally, I used this email to setup my blog. After going well early on, I misplaced my password for my blog. So, I sent a password reset to my email. Coincidentally, I forgot my email password also. Since it was not linked to any of my existing accounts, I had no way to retrieve it. They only I access I had to my blog was an old laptop that decides to cooperate maybe 15% of the time. Other times, it just hangs. It has certainly made blogging a chore, but I won’t be stopped. Fun times and memories, and lesson learned!!
I was really pumped up by the webinar for week 23. It has been a long journey, but I had lacked in a few areas. I decided and challenged myself to finish strong. In doing so, I had to take stock and see where I was lacking. I have slacked on Og, the MK, and especially my blog. Today, I have put in 4 entries to catch up. Seems like a theme for this round of MKMMA, especially working from a lame laptop and the password issues. Makes blogging a pain, but it feels so good when I get it done.
I still have a few things I want to touch on for this week. Found some really big discoveries.
1st, I have given myself permission to be self-reliant. I didn’t realize I struggled with that until our last webinar and I really thought about it during a recent quiet sit. Looking back, I need improvement, but now I fully realize and take responsibility for being self-reliant.
2nd, the Franklin makeover is just genius. Doing this exercise has really let me see where I excel, and where I need to improve. This tool will make me stronger and unstoppable.
3rd, the Law of Least Effort. I found this so confusing when first introduced to it. It took some deep quite thought to really wrap my head around it. It was some of the same principles that I learned some years back. I cannot control most of what happens, but I can control how I respond to it, especially other people.
So, before I sign off, I do want to share another cool thing that happened this week. I’m a big sports fan, and my favorite team was in the NCAA tourney this week. I decided to be happy regardless of the outcome. Some big wins that fueled excitement, but the biggie is when they lost and the season was over, I decided not to let that sink me into despair and sulking around. I walked away with pride and happiness, feeling good and not being my usual self of dread.
Today, I am thankful!
