I’m continuing to integrate the Master Keys into my life. I’m seeing the benefits of using only positive statements in my DMP. I’ve redone my Plan of Action card to incorporate a few positive statements. I’m devoting sits to trying to find more ways to voice my plans in a positive way.
“I eat before 8PM.” is one that is working very well. Integrating that was challenging for the first two weeks. I felt hungry every night. That little gnaw in the gut that says, “Feed me.” I repeated to myself, “I eat before 8PM.” I drank some water — ice water is my favorite beverage. Actually, on the POA, it’s “Water and Ningxia Red are my favorite beverages.” Both are authorized after 8PM, but I usually go for water.
I chose this phrase because it specifically addresses a concern I have about being deprived of food. I don’t know where that concern came from, but it was a real problem for me several years ago. I’ve been working with Subby on it even before I started the Master Keys, and this phrase really resonates. I’m not deprived. I just eat before 8PM. I’ve been doing it for almost a month, and I hardly ever think about it anymore.
What will I incorporate next? I’m not sure yet. But I love to use my Service card to help me stop procrastinating on decluttering efforts around the house. See you next week. Integration continues.
This week has been “In the Flow” of a wild river with a mild set of Rapids (I need to remind myself how fun that is).
On the bright side, my husband is feeling better. On the dark side, my husband is feeling better. That means he wants to “get stuff done.” After six months of thinking about how much he hasn’t been able to get done, he is ready to work.
This is a good thing, but my schedule becomes secondary to his, and his is largely dependent upon the weather. Meaning even if he did tell me what he wanted me to help with, it will change.
The Law of Least Effort is my friend. We spent four hours at the ranch clearing fallen trees (at least three) to reach our long-neglected (about ten years) tractor. This photo was taken at the point where we’d cleared the tree that had fallen on the back of the motor home a couple of years ago. On Saturday, we spent about four hours and cleared all the trees and debris from the tractor. We worked together very well, and it was a rewarding day.
On Tuesday, we had a window withou rain forecast, so we went out to remove the shredder from the back and use come-alongs to pull it into the trailer. We expected that would take a couple hours. Six hours later, we were headed to town. Everything went smoothly. We didn’t gauge how much time it would take.
The tractor is now resting in the shop, waiting for my husband to get it running again.
Thought. We all do it, but how many of us do so consciously? How often? It’s been on my mind this week. Pardon the pun. As I read the Master Keys lessons, the topic has come up repeatedly this week. … Continue reading →
Week 26 is, in most ways, proceeding well. Continuation prescribed re-reading the masker keys, which I had planned to do but not this soon. I adjusted. In my personal life, I’m finding a Law Review has been dictated. I’m glad we … Continue reading →
