It\’s not all easy street over here! I am finding the new habits from my service card are happening more easily and I can see I\’m not putting things off (small tasks like putting away the laundry or bigger tasks like completing a work assignment). And I have a new happy mental statement I find myself saying which is that I have exactly enough time to do what I need to do. So as opposed to feeling stressed about lack of time, I can feel myself relax into the thought that it\’s all happening as planned.
My morning reading/sit and workout are going well. I\’m getting up earlier and I do feel the Og\’s promise of vigor and enthusiasm, and that \”…my desire to meet the world  overcome[s] every fear I once knew at sunrise…\” What a lovely thought phrase that is! I\’m really imprinting it.
In terms of overcoming challenges, I still find it hard to hit all the exact readings in terms of number and time of day! With 5 of us in the family, that\’s 105 meals each week (though the kids do have a good school lunch so that takes away 15!), plus the daily household tasks of cleaning and laundry on top of transporting little people through time and space, as well as keeping up consulting billable hours and my MLM team work, sleep, rest, etc.
With all that said, I still feel happily challenged by the MKMME tasks and even in my struggles, I know that I\’m bettering myself and my family. I love that I sense that I now feel which is that doing my workout in the morning is actually getting me closer to achieving my DMP; and re-folding my daughters dresser full of clothes which were tossed out in a wild game of hide-and-seek last week, is also getting me closer to my dreams.
I also love reading the new weekly Haanel aloud to my husband at least once through! I was going to try that with the Emerson too (might be two sessions there!). It feels like good work to be doing despite seeming hard at times.
Haneel\’s construction methaphor this week about builidng a house in 5:9 and the care we put into the choice of materials was very relatable. I never have thought about my mind as a \”mental home\” but it makes so much sense!
Why fill it up with junk when we can have jewels instead!
