So, a couple of weeks ago a good friend (I am looking at you Lisa) shared with me a video about the Master Key experience. At first, I was not sure what it was, but after watching 3 intro videos I was extremely excited (and a little scared) to take on this 6 MONTH Course!!! Yep that’s right 6 MONTHS!!
Early Monday morning it all began! And boy was I feeling LOST!! So much to take in and do and I was feeling overwhelmed and questioning what I had signed up for. But as they say, you can eat an elephant one bite at a time and that is exactly what I did.
The Master Key Experience for me is all about ME! I am choosing to invest this time, 1 hour a day for ME! To improve ME, become a better ME and get a clear view of what I want from life and take those steps to make my dreams a reality!
We are given weekly and daily task and to be honest I had no idea how I was going to get them done. Changing the way I was thinking about it gave me freedom to find the time to do them. One of the tasks is to write a weekly Blog, so strap yourselves in and if your game, join me for the ride!! I’M BACK!!! Putting my Blog to good use!! A weekly Blog post for me is reasonably easy and do-able, I enjoy writing, that’s why I started the Blog in the first place, writing consistently is something I did not do but I am looking forward to that.
Our daily task was what was the most challenging for me, I have a very active 4 year old and finding (or making the time) to read & sit still for 30-40mins a DAY, I was like, Holy Moly how and when am I going to do that. And then I realized I am doing this for ME! And I am worth finding/making the time to do this!! So that is exactly what I did!! After making the decision to just do it and make the time for me the next biggest challenge was the evening Readings. I am to read a Scroll from ‘The Greatest Salesman in the World’ by Og Mandino of an evening right BEFORE I go to sleep.
To make reading the LAST thing I do before going to sleep. Now for me that time before sleeping was like “me” time, I scrolled Facebook, Insta, Emails anything I needed to catch up on. I needed to become disciplined and this was probably the hardest part, BUT we are 5 days in and I am actually enjoying the ‘No Screen Time’ right before bed/sleep and I am looking forward to it becoming a new habit.
So, here’s to creating new, healthy habits and the start of my 6 month journey.
