Gratitude – Week 1

Blog topics have been filling my thoughts since Sunday.  Sorting through all the emotions and ideas which are related to the beginning of my MasterKeyExperience (phase II) is EXCITING but also makes me nervous. Each time I begin to write I tend to get side tracked with an entirely different train of thought. Where to begin?! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Well, I was first introduced to the MKE in Sept. 2016. I was intrigued as soon as I finished video #1 but I made the decision to commit and enroll only days before its launch and had absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into. 😂 Of course, my experience was an incredible(and challenging) one and I am very glad that I got started when I did. Going into this years course however, I have a clearer idea of what it is that I want to recognize in myself and which habits I want to cultivate. Why then do I catch myself doubting my ability to follow-through and worry about the sacrifices that will need to be made in order to achieve my goals? Possibly due to neglecting to feed “subby” intentionally over the past year. 😞

Today however, the topic hit me with a beautiful intensity and way that I really cannot explain. I had just finished reading my midday scroll from OG Mandinos Greatest Salesman in the World and was repeating the last phrase of the it over in my mind, “I walk tall among men and they know me not for today I am a new [wo]man with a new life.” when a whole flood of genuinely realized gratitude’s poured in and took over my thoughts. It brought me to tears! there are so many things that I allow to go unnoticed, one of the many being TIME! I often find myself asking “where has the time gone?” and “how is he already so big?” 😲 but today as I thought about each precious minute that I had lived already and all the perfectly imperfect moments that filled them I gained a new sense of appreciation for what I hold,, here,,, right now.

So as this journey with the MKE begins again, I choose to go forward appreciating each little piece of opportunity to learn, grow and give. ❤️ I am excited to meet people and create new friendships! I am eager to build new and GOOD habits and become their slave(this makes sense but still sounds so strange). 😄 And I am simply overjoyed to be dedicating a handful of precious minutes consistently everyday to chipping away at this suit of cement. Hello gold! ✨ Hello new woman. 🙋‍♀️
