Week 17 – Puzzle In A Box

For 4 months now, I have engaged in the Master Key Master Mind Alliance (MKMMA) experience, and as a result, I now see, with much clearer focus, the significance and the role my mind and my thoughts play in how my life unfolds.

I look back over my 51 years and I see the various seasons of my life: of purpose and contribution; of hurt and pain; of healing; of achieving dreams; of aimlessness; of discovery.

Life is truly a glorious journey.  I am who I am because of how I have responded in each of these seasons.  I’m thankful for all of them.  In this very moment, I am in a season of discovery, and I am so thankful for this.

The past is over, done, gone, past.  The future holds the results of the choices I make now, in this moment.

And now, in this moment, I examine and take control of my thoughts because I know that what I reap in my thoughts, I sow in the conditions of my life.

This is the toughest personal training I’ve ever attempted.  It’s exponentially more demanding than any physical training I’ve ever done.  It’s not easy to take control of my thoughts.  It’s not easy to discipline myself to concentrate.  Truly concentrate.

I practice.  I fail.  I make another attempt. I know that the life I desire depends on my success in this.  So I concentrate on courage.  I concentrate on abundance.  I concentrate on health.  I concentrate on love.  And every time I fail in my concentration, I make another attempt, and another, and another.  And I keep going.

If my life is a “puzzle in a box”, the box has been opened, the pieces laid out on the table, and I now put the pieces together carefully, deliberately, intentionally, knowingly, purposely, purposefully, consciously…

Love and Big Hugs,
