Week 4 has been full of challenges, great insights, frustrations, and stress. I found much comfort with Mark J\’s words in the MK audio.. to embrace the experience, let it wash over you, there is a lesson within.
The good news about frustration is that it means you are on the brink of a breakthrough! (Tony Robbins reference) For me, week 4 presented significant frustration stemming from my full-time job. Typically, I handle stress well. I do my best to maintain a positive approach and do what is in my circle on control. This week included numerous priority shifts at work with crazy unrealistic deadlines- definitely a hellter-skellter atmosphere. The lesson from this week is that I became very aware of how I was responding. I could feel my old blueprint trying to takeover and go on auto-pilot. I tried not to judge myself and be the observer. Multiple times I said \”STOP\” out loud to that cranky old blueprint. I confirmed to myself that I was safe and there was no need to go down the path of fear, leading to unneeded stress, worry, upset stomach, etc. I also was feeling that cranky old blueprint saying \”see I told you are running out of time again\”..Too much to do it all well, work, family outings, MKMMA assignments, proper amount of sleep. Grrr…I wrestled with these thoughts and did my best to sweep them out of my mind. I also reminded myself of what Mark J said in the week 4 audio that the old thoughts are not getting me where I want to be so why am I holding onto them? Challenging week but on a good note I continued to complete our MKMMA assignments and kept my emotions high when declaring content on my index cards. One day behind in posting my blog, but I am focusing on completion. We are in it for sure now…this is real and getting deep….a bit anxious but excited because I know, that I know, that I know that this course is exactly what I was am looking for to uncover my true authentic self and live a life of fulfillment. =) Thanks again to the entire MKMMA staff for all your efforts and genuine support you provide us.
