As this year’s Master Key Experience begins I approach it as one who has been given a blank slate to design life the way I choose it to be. The seeming conflicting emotions of excitement and fear race through my body and mind. Excitement that I can choose whatever path is before me. Fear that I can choose whatever path is before me.
I’ve spent a good deal of time the last couple of years crafting my Definite Major Purpose (DMP) which is to act as my road-map to my future. This year I feel like I need to scrap everything and start over. Not because I didn’t really want any of the things I put in my previous DMP, but because it just feels like that’s what I need to do. Maybe some of the things I’ve included in past iterations of my DMP will still be included in the new one…maybe it will look totally different.
I don’t know yet.
I feel free, though, to really reach into the deep recesses of my mind to rekindle the passions that were extinguished by the “red pencil” of life. Nothing is off limits. I must draw out of my subconscious mind the things I really want…those things that cause me to be excited about each and every day.
I’ve started down this path a few years ago not having any idea that I’d be where I am today in my life. As hard as it has been I would not change any of it. The challenges I’ve faced have not only made me a stronger person (that’s sooo cliche) but a better person.
I am alive.
I replace complaining with finding beauty and joy.
I replace blame with accepting responsibility for my life.
I am grateful for EVERYTHING in my life…(yes, everything).
Almost forgot! I wanted to share a photo from earlier this summer taken at the MKE Live event. Most people don’t like to see themselves in photos that other people take. I’m no different. However, this is quite possibly my favorite picture of all time! Thank you Sarah for capturing my happiness and my happy place…with all of you!
