Week 16- Kindness

My favourite time of the master key experience, kindness week.

Just 2 random acts of kindness with getting caught, booosting blogs, compliments, smiles, thank you’s and holding doors open, gathering up carts in the parking lots, all lead to massive change within me and my world.

How cool is that?

All the master key students, guides and staff start a tremendous ripple that goes around the world.  Many students  and guides live in France, Belgium, Germany, Canada and the United States to name just a few countries. Just imagine all those people in their own communities bring love, hugs and great feelings of wonder to so many, and the ripples start flowing.

I feel so powerful being part of a cause so much bigger than myself, I am constantly in awe of the changes in myself and my immediate world.

The big payoff for me is the immediate improvment in my life the day I started the MKE and the continally unfolding of knowing the authentic me, and enjoying deep rich relationships with my family and friends.

I am on a path of self discovery, that is limitless. I am nature’s greatest miracle and I share it with the world.

Week 15- Franklin Makeover

My word for the week is self-control.  The more I look for it, the more I see it in me.

I am noticing the car in front of me letting in traffic.  Is that self control, I choose to see it that way.

In church this week the sermon, do not go to bed angry…umm another self control dot here. I am amayzed how this lay person was so open, regarding his marriage. He talked warmly about their great 14 years together, then that 15th year where they were both angry, using the silent war to tear down the beautiful relationship they had built. Each to  proud to offer an olive branch to the other.  Now he is reminded about the huge loss, as he faces recovery issues after an accident, no one  to help him put on a tie(shattered elbow and a new titainium one put in) he is stiff and sore. He is thinking God gave him an helper and he messed that up, now he ventures  into old age alone.

What has he(me) learned through this experience, how much more I can give to my immediate relationships, more love, more time, more atta boys for those special ones I love.  In time I will  reap what  I sowed.  They give me love , time, great conversations and time well spent, I have all I ever wanted. I am in harmony with the universe.

Thank you MKE, you gave me eyes to see, and the key to a better version  of me, therefore a better world without, my life is peaceful and harmonious, even  in the face of loss.

Week 14- Meeting me

The movie Wild starring Reese Witherspoon is heart wrenching and life affirming all at the same time.  I can identify with crushing grief following the death of a parent, my Dad. I didn’t become a heroin addict and destroy my marriage. Well I am 100% responsible for my divorce, it happened years ago.  My father passed away in June, so the tears poured down my face watching this movie this afternoon.

Her Mom was so much like my father, he was funny, insightful and a happy teacher of life.  He overcame so many obstacles and decided to be a Dad and not run off to find his life as a Nashville musician. He struggled financially but was always happy and poured out his love for his children.

The Master Key  Experience has taught me, how to find my best self and hang on to it.  My father would be proud that I have succeeded just like he did.

How wild life is when you just let it be! You can choose to put yourself in the way of beauty everyday.

We are never prepared for what we expect, so grabbed on with both hands and be your best self and live your best life.

week 12 & 13 – Generating happiness

I am happy when I give.

This is the perfect season to do just that, I am holding doors for the person behind me, putting away shopping carts in the grocery store parking lots, smiling at the parking lot attendees with wishes of Merry Christmas.  Hey this is fun.

I gave coffee cards to my handyman crew. I took my Mom and her friend from the Nursing home to lunch(her favourite restaurant).  I give the gift of flashing cards and dmp readings to myself. I can feel myself smile as I flash those cards and the good feelings that wash over me…priceless.  This  season, simple happiness from me to you.

Todays happiness adventure is helping my daughter finish her shopping, fun yeah!

week 11- Crazy thoughts

Have y’all ever felt like you are just living out your days in a season of psycho-pants level frustration? Some days I’m two autocorrects away from needing a new phone because my “toddler” smashed mine. And by toddler, I mean the emotional, full-grown woman-baby who takes over my body when I am crumbling under a molehill I’ve turned into a mountain. Old blue print raises her ugly head.

I spent my first 60 years tirelessly scaling the alps of life. Mountains and mountains of doubt, fear, comparison, shame, guilt, expectations, laundry, dishes, to-do lists, anger and frustrations. I don’t know about you, but overwhelm and stress send me straight off the cliff. This is usually when I find myself mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally unstable and incapable.

If you’ve found yourself feeling flustered, flattened and just down-and-out, I promise you’re not alone. We can get so focused on all the things that need to be done that we can’t see we are coming undone. We can’t see, hear or remember a lot of things. Like the conflict we are about to step right into, the whisper of God’s voice trying to provide guidance, and where on earth we put those car keys dangling in our hand.

I am living with my 90 year old mom, flashbacks from my childhood and wrestling my own demons, I am reminded of the laws of substitution and growth.  Thank you Master key Principles for planting seeds of self-control.  Thank you mental diet.  I got this. I am ok. I can handle it all.
