finish strong

This week my old blueprint tried to take a swing at me and wipe me out… It did make me stumble a bit and I started doubting if I can actually achieve what is set out in my DMP and if I am physically able to finish this course. On my DMP, early on in the course I had put a sticky note on it that reads “I always FINISH!” and I read it after every reading  out loud, with the greatest gusto I can muster 🙂 Even though my readings this week were sporadic and weak, when I did read I new I was NOT giving up.  Trish had related her story where she physically reacted with Eczema and I could really relate to that! Mine was sleeplessness and nightmares and when 5 out of 14 days are ENTIRE nights without sleep and those nights where I was lucky to get 5-6hrs I ended up with nightmares…. So weakness and fatigue set in and my old excuses came back.

Contacting my guide, Bob Paterson, was an incredible help.  Thank YOu BOB! I am so glad we have guides to help us. I realized that I have always used “feeling tired” and my insomnia as an excuse. This WAS my Go TO reason for failing. But no more of that!

So ‘what would my future self do?”

Keep at it! Follow a strict sleep hygiene habits, meditate, exercise, get some sunshine and of course be the master of any fear that pops up, substitute excitement for my future me and of course FINISH!

I am not my past! My Past does not DEFINE WHO I AM TODAY and WHO I WILL BE TOMORROW!  Thank goodness. I will live today as if it were my last and I am not emotionally attached to the outcome. I am just going to act without fear and master courage everyday!

    I’m glad you were able to get back on your feet and keep on! It’s such an important lesson, to know we are not our past, and we are not defined by our past.
