Gratefully, because of our success in Network Marketing, I was able to retire when I was 42 years old. I’m now 62. One of the “stories” I’ve told myself throughout these past 20 years is that I lack discipline. I believe I was a lot more disciplined in my “working years” simply because it was demanded of me in order to make my life work as I raised 3 kids and a husband, ran a household and had my career as a free-lance court reporter. As my responsibility load lessened, my sense of urgency and over all discipline noticeably declined. With the decline of discipline, my habit of procrastination perpetuated itself. Hmmm….not a good combination.
Having said all that, you can imagine my surprise as I sit here 10 weeks into the MKMMA course, and I can honestly say that I have not missed any of my daily readings! Reading is the very first thing I do upon awakening in the morning. It’s automatic now. I’ve created a wonderful habit where upon awakening after a peaceful night’s sleep, I spend 90 minutes of structured time working on my world within, and I have come to cherish my morning ritual. I particularly love reading Og. I do admit, however, that I was really looking forward to moving from Scroll I to Scroll II, so much so I played with the idea of reading Scroll II a few days earlier than instructed BUT I didn’t. I was a good girl. I was done with Scroll I, and knew I simply wanted to move on. Now it’s been a month that I’ve been reading Scroll II, and I love greeting each day with love in my heart, and I’m simply NOT ready to say Goodbye. I have taken this scroll to heart, and I have seen so many wonderful results from having become one with this scroll. “And who is there who will say Nay to my goods when his heart feels my love.”
I’ve learned to give more to get more and who doesn’t want more Love? I am a loving, open, and vulnerable woman and when I give of myself in a healthy way, it is beyond amazing what has come back to me. I’ve learned so much from Scroll II, and although I must move on, I will come back and revisit this great teacher of mine just as I would anyone near and dear to me. Thank you, Scroll II. I am forever indebted to your teachings…..
