When I sat down to write my blog today, I looked back at where I was last year on this spectacular journey. After reading it, I decided to post it because I feel much the same this week as I did then.
My week was super busy and awesome. I was out every night this week and did something different every evening. I filled my datebook with different activities and events, and they were all different: retirement planning, business strategizing, dinner at a friend’s daughter’s house, and getting a facial. Imagine how easy it was to write my gratitude cards and one sentence journal this week. There were so many things to write about.
My days at school were also fantastic. The class and I went on a field trip where we pretended to be pioneers for a day, and they voted it best field trip ever!! Yesterday, they passed out their Valentines. A day filled with kindness and love.
My birthday is on this coming Tuesday, and I must say, it is a number that is difficult for me to wrap my head around. I decided to surround myself with love and enjoy the event, and I am having dinner with friends tomorrow, Monday, and Tuesday. Pretty nice way to celebrate a birthday. To top off the celebrations, when I went to my friend’s daughter’s house for dinner, the other three children and my friend and her husband were all in the kitchen waiting to surprise me for an early celebration. I was shocked and so deeply touched.
Today I had the day off work. It is the start of a four-day weekend. Sweet! I almost felt a bit like Ferris Bueller today, and to quote Ferris, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” I took full advantage of every minute. I talked with my mortgage broker, had a Mastermind with one of my fellow MKMMA people, had a massage, a manicure, a dance lesson, dinner with friends, and went to a facial party at an apartment with the most amazing view of Navy Pier and the lakefront. I am grateful for having an incredible day off work.
As I lived a great week, all our readings and activities kept playing through my head.
My DMP states that I live a rich and fulfilling life, and I am surrounded by the people I love.
Og states that I should live this day as if it is my last.
Our assignment is to write three gratitude cards a day and a sentence about something good that happens. The more things we do that are meaningful to us, the easier it is to find new things to be grateful for.
I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.
Give more of myself and I get more love in return.
I Am nature’s greatest miracle. I Am the solution. Find the love. Find the kindnesses.
Peace be the journey.
