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….!

    To me your an over-comer! You have the knowledge and tools to respond in the best way..and you did. It’s easy to stay positive when no one provokes or distracts out little happy world..Unfortunately, life is not always like that.None of us are perfect..so don’t beat yourself up.
    Thanks for sharing! I’m honored and blessed to be on this journey with you, Christel

    Decisiveness– that sure is one that I have to work on. For me I have to get “back onto the list”. When I use a check off list I feel better and thus, … less indecisive. Thanks for sharing. Sure sounds & looks to me that you are growing. Best wishes.

    Maybe I am a bit responsible of your bad good… as I didn’t have the opportunity to contact you ! Anyway, don’t blame you. And remember… “If a negative thought enters your mind…use any fond memory or other pleasant thought… ‘Resist not evil’ meaning turn from it and think about somethinf esse instead.” (Law of Substitution) !
