Week 17 HJ – Trying Times

We made the trip home from SC in a long 22-hr car drive last Friday because my husband had to get back to work.  The unfortunate consequence of that choice was that 4 days later he was admitted to the hospital with deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in his leg) and has been there since Tuesday.  He was able to come home last night, but he is in severe pain, is unable to walk and needs constant care.  I am so grateful to have him back at home and have faith that he will come through this ordeal with complete recovery and a new mindset about his health.

Needless to say, these past 2 weeks have been a challenge greater that I ever imagined and the routine I worked so hard to create towards progression in this MKMMA course has been turned upside down.  Prior to getting the news about my mother I had rarely missed a reading, exercise, sit, etc and I really felt my new habits were starting to solidify.  But in these past 2 weeks I’ve missed numerous exercises – even a couple of whole days – and there are times I barely feel like I’m keeping my head above water.  So I’m feeling a little vulnerable at the moment and definitely fighting the old blueprint.  But keeping up with the 3 gratitude cards daily, flashing them whenever possible and focusing on kindness has really kept me afloat, plus masterminding with my partner and getting into the alliances area.  I do have a new guide and plan to reach out for some support.

Hanging in there…..I have no doubt that there is wisdom, insight or important new lessons for me to learn in all of this.  I am grateful for MKMMA beyond words.

    You can do this Lori, as Og says; ‘I welcome obstacles for they are my challenge’, and ‘if I persist, if I continue to try, if I continue to charge forward, I will succeed’. As I read it Lori, you haven’t given up, you’re still pressing forward, so why not look at that gal in the mirror, and say ‘well done’ for all the things you have done despite your challenges.

      John – Thank you so much for your support and encouragement. I am definitely pressing on….and folks like you who are on this journey with me make all the difference. I appreciate your advise about how to approach the gal in the glass. That old blueprint used to be a bit of a perfectionist – so I often hesitate to say I did my best (vs the best I can)…….but you’re right, I need to acknowledge all the things I’ve done well these past few weeks and be proud of where I’m going. This has been a time of tremendous insight and learning – and I have been filled with gratitude every day. There really is so much to celebrate and be grateful for.

    Congratulate yourself for incorporating the things that fit into your daily routine. You haven’t abandoned your journey and dreams, just hit a speed bump. Sending you love and hugs.
