week 13- A rare find

I am rare, and there is a value in all rarity; therefore, I am valuable.

When is the last time you thought of yourself as valuable, a rare find?  Looking for others to make you feel valuable, I keep waiting.  I know I see myself as valuable because I give it to others first, love, acceptance, I stay in the flow and I become valuable to everyone I meet.  I am extraordinary because in today’s world this behavior unique.  We at MKMMA are rare finds indeed, more valuable than all the riches of the world.

week 12- A plan for a total makeover

Og, I forget the happenings of the day that is gone, whether they were good or bad, and greet the new sun with confidence that this be the best day of my life.

The future me, healthy, happy,  feeling terrific, organized and making a difference in the lived of others.

These changes require hard work, pain, and unwavering determination.  I am reminded of the movie “Wild.”  Taking on a huge challenge without any experience, training or guidance.  Relying on the kindness of strangers and your own smarts to outwit the human predators.  I see similarities in navigating my own life, albeit much less dangerous.

I believe my God has a hand in my life, using the bad and painful to achieve good for all who are watching the transformation and changing me from the inside out by leading me through the master key experience

Week 11- Dmp switcheroo-Roll the dice

My Dmp didn’t feel right. It wasn’ honestly me. It bothered me, I felt it was my life that I was living for someone else’s life.  So I switched ppn’s and I  feel good about the revisions, my guide Ken must be scratching his head and wondering, but I am becoming a self-directed thinker and I think I will change things up and go with how I feel.

I am looking at the flurry of  Christmas activity both at work and in my home, and wonder how to squish it all into the time left. The clock is ticking, but I don’t look at the clock and look at my compass so I choose to have work left on my desk while I make sure a substantial cheque that was lost in the mail, is in the hands of a  68-year-old client for  Christmas. I take the time to observe, the homeless man collecting change at the intersection, volunteering for the children’s charity, and decided these are my priorities. I remember og , Yet from childish swipes, the oak eventually tumble. So it be with my efforts of today. All will be done that comes from my heart and the reason for the season is not lost on me. I will hold this special feeling this season in my heart all year.  Merry Christmas my MKE peeps.

Week 10-Persistence

Give more get more, persistence in giving and being.  One step at a time is not too difficult. I smile and in my mind, I say “I love you.”

Each day’s efforts are my small attempts repeated until I succeed in meeting my future self.

That woman of grace and compassion, who is organized and successful. The one who is perfect, whole, strong, powerful, loving harmonious and happy. During my sits I talked to her, we laugh, drink coffee, catch up on what is going on in our lives.  I love her, she is my best friend, she feels less and less like a stranger. I think back to how we met, that ribbon of circumstance that crossed our paths.  So I persistently take small steps towards the new woman in my life, me.

Week 9 – The Dementia Thing

My parents are no longer the people I  know, they are changing into someone else’s parents.  They are on a terrifying journey into the unknown.

They remember me, but they live and remember from a time long ago, which includes people I never knew and snippets of memories from their childhood in the 1930’s.

I am told by professionals that I  need limitless amounts of patience and understanding.

So, this brings me to, caregiving for people with Alzheimer’s. My counselor helps me understand and I see a parallel with MKE.

I am to encourage and praise all efforts to self-help. I clap and give the thumbs up sign to my dad for completing exercises and for successfully managing to stand and walk with his walker. I hold his face and we both grimace together as he tries to swallow that awful mountain of medication. Thumbs up when we are successful.

Reminiscing and agreeing to stories that sound like fantasies, this is explained as keeping the peace and not making my dad feel agitated or embarrassed.  My dad can pick up on my emotions, so very important to make him feel loved and valued.

I think of the alliances, where I share struggles, victories, and tips and I  feel so much love and encouragement from my  MKE peeps.

Lightening bolt, I am sharing the second scroll of OG, love is my greatest weapon.

Does not matter if you have Alzheimer’s or not,  we all need to be treated with love and encourage each other in this life.  I suspect many of us are already doing this?

Changing scrolls in a few days, I will boldly write on the top of scroll three “Love is my greatest weapon”
