So far this week, I have to say that I totally identify with Jenna. Og Mandino really sets the record straight on feeling fantastic all the time:
“I will avoid despair but if this disease of the mind should infect me I will work on in despair. I will toil and I will endure. I will ignore the obstacles at my feet and keep mine eye on the goals above my head, for I know that where the dry desert ends, green grass grows”.
I do feel fantastic about doing the work of MKMMA and doing it with feeling. It’s just that this week seems that once the exercise is done the feeling is gone. So I toil on despite not feeling amazing that I am headed toward my bliss. I consciously realize that it is a wonderful thing that I am doing, and that I am going to succeed with greatness, and that I am becoming the person I truly am (want to be) each day. These are super exciting things but I just want to be honest. I don’t feel super excited and if there is one thing I have learned from running marathons and such, it’s that the feeling excited thing is really meaningless as far as my ability to keep on.
Remember this……….I KNOW I HAVE THE ABILITY to achieve my definite purpose in life. It doesn’t say I know I will always feel like an awesome rock start LOL. I realize that doing the work with great feeling creates a new blueprint in my mind but I don’t think it means that I am feeling totally ecstatic 24-7. I CAN and DO keep on regardless of the feeling because I have built it into myself that I can. I guess that is the true burning desire huh? I mean who would toil on in despair if they didn’t have a damn good reason to do it LOL.
I have two good reasons! True Health and Autonomy! Well three……..the guy in the mirror! And I have written down a description of my definite chief aim in life to achieve those two things for the guy in the mirror. And I will!
