Week One – The Journey Begins

Featured image

As this week progresses, I find myself exhilarated, empowered, fearful, and anxious all at the same time! It really does have that “first week at a new school” feeling. I  believe this series will be of  benefit to my home life and my work but, at first, I had problems with some of the requirements. For example:

  • No TV at night? Are you kidding me?? (Many a mighty fight between my fiance and myself have started with my basic unalienable right to fall asleep with the TV on!
  • I struggled with the time implementation of the reading schedule and the thought of  writing my DMP straight out of the chute.
  • How was I to sit still after the lesson? Seriously?? Have you been to the 3 ring circus that has set up shop in my home?

How would I manage all of this in the middle of the current chaos that resides at my home? I felt very resistant.  After all, I am just too busy. I did not know how I would do it. My suspicious blueprint of old was certain that this must be a trick anyway. Surely it must be a waste of time with an eventual price tag! As if my mayhem has time for any such nonsense!

But I began to feel something as I continued to read the first scroll and the blueprint builder over and over….a feeling that this resistance was healthy and to fear it was akin to feeding a monster. I began to feel a need to tame my dragons. After all, this is my choice. I chose it! Who am I to tell myself I cannot do it if I wish to do so?!!

There were also too many signs to ignore. I have been tucking away the “Worlds Laziest Networker” blogs for almost a year. I would watch most but always saved the others for later  to read. (Of course only when my mayhem took a day off – which was never – so the folder titled “Worlds Lazy”  grew larger. LOL)

Bottom line is I need this! I will share more in my next blog so that you will truly understand where I am coming from. The last year of my life has included some excruciating events. At times, I barely had time to breath. I am grateful to the person who told me to finish my application after I thought time had run out. And here I am!

I am ready for peace and the journey.

Thank you!

  1. I love your attitude, Paige — and this post! Based upon my experience last year, those gals whose lives seemed to be the most chaotic, were also the most resilient, and made it to the finish line. I’ll be betting on you every time. Welcome aboard the Master Key Express to success!

  2. You certainly have a lot going on inn your life at present. Having to sit still can certainly be a challenge which I’m sure you’ll overcome it. It’s a matter of choosing what’s important.

  3. When I did the program, Paige, there were several mothers who also described what could about as well be considered a 3-ring circus, and I know two of these managed the situation and did remarkably well. Of course, every situation, despite its similarities, is also different. Perhaps worth asking a question or two in the Alliances “General Discussion.” I like your post. I’ve read it twice. The first time, my comment didn’t get posted. Oh dear! 🙂
