Week 18 – What if Today Was Your Last?

Og Scroll 5This week was mind blowing..!  We started reading Og Mandino’s Scroll V, an extract reads I will live this day as if it is my last. I have but one life and life is naught but a measurement of time.  When I waste one I destroy the other.  If I waste today I destroy the last page of my life.  Therefore, each hour of this day will I cherish for it can never return.  It cannot be banked today to be withdrawn on the morrow, for who can trap the wind? Each minute of this day I grasp with both hands and fondle with love for its value is beyond price. 

I started to reflect on the words of Og, the silly little things in life that we get upset about are of no real importance.  It made me think of my children.  What is my relationship like with them?  What if today was my last? How would I want to be remembered?  So many things were buzzing in my head, but it was not of fear like I would of had years ago.  Instead I was filled with love, peace and appreciation.  I am blessed to be a mother and have three healthy children. I got in touch with each of them and told them how much I loved them. If this was my last day, that is one thing I want them to remember.

I will avoid with fury the killers of time.  Procrastination I will destroy with action; doubt I will bury under faith; fear I will dismember with confidence. Where there are idle mouths I will listen not; where there are idle bodies I will visit not.  Henceforth I know that to court idleness is to steal food, clothing and warmth from those I love.  I am not a thief.  I am a man of love and today is my last chance to prove my love and my greatness. 

Og surely got me to pull my socks up.  I had postponed getting a poster done for our event for so long. After doing my sit this week and pondering on Scroll v, I got to business and designed my poster for our upcoming even, amazing what an app can do.  I have not designed a poster before but with all these exercisises we have been doing my confidence has soared..! It was time to kick procrastination to the curb for good with full on action. It is so easy to take things for granted and put things off for a while and say we will do them tomorrow, but tomorrow just always seems to get extended to the next day and so on.  Time is not promised to us and we have to take each moment to be the best we can be.

Week 17 – Keep Focused….!

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….!
