We are in week 5 of the Master Keys Mastermind Alliance Experience (MKMMA) experience. I won’t lie; it’s a lot of work. AND, it’s worth it. As I get clear on my Definite Major Purpose (DMP), my priorities shift and I find myself with more time to do the things I want to do. The new habits I am creating are indeed habits. Good habits. And that is my will.
My husband and I just got rid of cable. Partly to lower our monthly bills and partly to open up more time in our schedule and life for things we purposefully do. We have Netflix so we can still relax and watch a movie or show. However, I’m finding myself spending less time in front of the TV and more time at my writing desk. Writing!
The things I always complained about not having time for – reading, writing, and yoga – are in my schedule as habits, which I created! My DMP got signed off on last week. Nancy O. was SO helpful, guiding me through the process, revising, editing, updating. Rewrite, rewrite, rewrite! I do love that process. Hmmm… there’s a clue!
I felt pretty good about my DMP. But pretty good wasn’t great. As I sat down to write my Press Release this week, the words flowed out of me. 1,919 words to be exact and 7 pages worth! And my press release was about me, Lori King being a WRITER!
As I went back to my DMP, I realized what was off: I had put writing as an after thought! When my truth is, it’s my FIRST thought! It is at the center of AUTONOMY for me AND it is part of what allows me to live a life of TRUE HEALTH! Writing is part therapy, part stress release and very healing to me.
And that is The Awakening. I feel it in my body, my heart, and my mind. Og Mandino captured this very thing in The Greatest Salesman in the World:
“…I begin to awake, each morning, with a vitality I have never known before. My vigor increases, my enthusiasm rises, my desire to meet the world overcomes every fear I once knew at sunrise, and I am happier than I ever believed it possible to be in this world of strife and sorrow.” (Scroll I)
