A big part of my DMP is that we live in a place where we can more readily teach our kids our values, and also where we are more receptive to learning from our kids as they become who they are.
Mark is always mentioning going back to being 4, 5, or 6 before the concrete was in place. Our kids are 4, 5, and 7 so I\’m right there. My oldest Agnes then surprised me with this note this week.
This is a note to her best friend Vivien projecting into the future, Dec 22nd, which is her last day of school in NYC and our day to move to the house and property upstate which has been our dream and which we have furthered with the kids.
She is living the Master Key! I just love the whole thing, but the opening line, \”It\’s awesome here.\” Enough said! But she goes on to talk about Vivien\’s dog Harry and how he will be able to come to the house and not have to stay in New Jersey whcih is usually the case since we are so cramped here in Queens.
Well not anymore (almost!). We think our closings will be mid-December so we will have the Christmas tree in the country which started my vision earlier this year. I didn\’t realize that I would have to give up our apartment for getting the dream, but I feel very content about it now.
Without a doubt, the Master Key is giving me more tools to be better everyday. The Mental Diet I\’m still working to 7 days, but I love seeing improvement.
I mentioned this on my Tribe Call today also, but the final paragraph and sentence in Emerson is like a gift for having made it to that point. When I read it to my husband this week, I cried happy tears!
\”…and the man or woman who would have remained a sunny garden-flower, with no room for its roots and too much sunshine for its head, by the falling of the walls and the neglect of the gardener, is made the banian of the forest, yielding shade and fruit to wide neighbourhoods of men.\”
May we each plant roots now which will grow into trees for our generations to come.
