I can not believe that I have allowed six weeks to go by without posting! I apologize to my awesome friends old and new who have been reading. For those of you who follow my Facebook, you will see that I have moved for the first time in over 10 years. Moving is always a big event. I am grateful that I had movers for the big stuff. The work of packing, organizing, and setting up a new place in addition to my business endeavors, and mother duties has filled my days. I am honored that you are taking part of your day to read my blog.
I have been continuing my Master Key Exercises, and I will be the first to admit that I could be better. However, as one of my fellow Master Key Friends likes to say, “Don’t let the perfect get in the way of the good.” Therefore, I happily appreciate what I have practiced and am adding more back in this week. I have a confession. Pushing for that perfect and losing out on a critical need such as good sleep is a problem for me. I celebrate the different ability with those who can do the few hours a night. This fitness professional needs 7-8 hours with 6 being a minimum. Anything less causes me to function at less than my fully successful state. I forgive and love my imperfections as much as my strengths and happily accept that I can’t do everything at the same time.
In April, as I was reading Scroll VII in Og Mandino’s, “The Greatest Salesman in the World”. I could enjoy my challenges even more as it talks about laughing at the world and yourself. Fortunately, that is something that I have been doing for several years. I feel that it is my job as a human being to evolve. That being said, we all have quirks and qualities that can be improved. When I notice a less than stellar attribute, I enjoy the moment to laugh at myself and am grateful for how far I have come.
This month’s scroll has talked about multiplying ourself one hundred fold. I agree Og. Now is the time. I need to do it now. That being said, I am back to blogging and indeed am stepping up my duties to be helping with the MasterKey MasterMind Alliance Benefits and Blogging Task Force. I enjoy the writing, and I love the experience so I saw this as a great way for me to contribute in paying it forward and to learn even more. I am attending a party this evening where I will meet new people and will be given a little time to share my business. I have also been spending some sit time on deciding to grow my fitness part of my business in my own neighborhood. I have had several parents over the last couple of years want me to teach. True to myself, I love teaching, helping others with exercise, and the fact that I can make a difference in my own neighborhood is appealing. I can charge more money if I were to take on a similar business endeavor in a more affluent neighborhood. However, Success In Life Is Being True To Yourself. When you do what you love, that follows your purpose, all of your needs will be met. I need to do some more planning as every business has logistics so I will keep you posted.
Through all the changes, my boy has been amazing. He is still doing great in school, had a smooth transition with the move, and we are enjoying our new home. I believe that children and in fact most people will follow your lead. By sharing my positivity and happiness in all areas, I receive the same back from others including the cute 6 year old.
Happy Mother’s Day to all! I look forward to a nice day with my boy. My son is going to have some quality time with Grandma while I give myself the gift of my favorite workout class. That also gives me plenty of time to lift weights. Then, we’ll all go out for lunch. If the weather cooperates we’ll enjoy one of Chicago’s fabulous parks, and if not, we’ll make it a fabulous movie, bowling, or museum. The above picture is from two weeks ago when we enjoyed my nephew’s first birthday and a formal mother/son dance at school. I have always been a believer in family first. This lines up with my MasterKey Mastermind Alliance as you are encouraged to schedule your family time. If you don’t have success at home, how can you expect success anywhere else?
Remember, even if you are not a mom, you may be someone’s chosen mom. What does that mean? Someone sees you as a positive role model in his or her life. There are even single dads who are playing mom and dad. Not to mention, if you are on this Earth, you have a mom whether she is still living or in the after life so there is reason for celebration for all tomorrow. For your enjoyment, I shared a picture below of a hanging in our home. It aligns with my own beliefs, my Mastermind Experience, and I hope that you will enjoy it too.
I promise to live my definite major purpose which provides my personal pivotal needs of liberty and true health.
I always keep my promises. Cathy
Today and everyday, I am grateful and celebrate life!
(Note: I had a consultation for my hosted blog. I am going to get that started on or before next Saturday which I would guess would mean a couple of weeks before that is ready. When it is complete, I’ll let you know how to get there and give you some free goodies for continuing to follow me. In the meantime, I will continue to blog here on WordPress.)
