Virtue #3 on my list is Decisiveness. One of the things that I have been bad with is paper work. It’s something that I have put off until the last minute but with the focus being on my third virtue of the week I decided that I was going to get all my paper work out of the way. I thought that I was pretty good at being decisive but I have to admit it was clear this week that I really do need to work on it. Just to decide what to eat I felt myself swaying back and forth, so as you can see it really needs some work.
This week started off great…! I was full of beans, positivity was pouring from my veins. Then near the end of the week, I spent probably an hour with an acquaintance and it went downhill from there. For the entire hour all I heard was negativity, negativity and more negativity…..I tried my utmost not to give an opinion but I was defeated, after all I was there nearly an hour………then out it slipped…..an opinion!! I had enough and made my excuses and left. No, to be honest I ran..! You know, after that encounter I felt myself feeling a bit low. I was even snappy with my daughter and other people I came into contact with but then I remembered Og who said “I hear not those who weep and complain, for their disease is contagious. “HELLO”….there it is, it was surely contagious. I was allowing her negativity to start affecting my mood, which in return I was afflicting onto others. I was attaching negative emotions and bringing myself down and I did not like this feeling one bit. What this really shows me is that I have to keep holding onto all the tools that I have been given; they are my armour keeping my mind focused on the 7 Laws of the mind, my DMP, movie poster.
It has only been 17 weeks into my journey but what I have experienced is the joy of waking up in the morning and being grateful for everything that comes my way. I can tell you that is a Great feeling any day of the week. I had a little stumble this week but I’m back in the saddle and ready to go!
I persist, I win…!
Have a fabulous week all….!
