I have to admit, when we first started doing our chore cards, I was thinking: “I don’t get it? HOW is this going to help us live our ideal lives?” I could feel resistance building up, but I persisted and followed the directions and did my best to stay open minded.
Eureka! Now I get it! Finishing my chore early last Tuesday gave me such a sense of accomplishment, but more importantly, it made me realize how up until now I have been telling myself that I am NOT one who finishes what I start, therefore, not a reliable person, not authentic, not trustworthy, with no integrity.
I was so proud of this simple chore completion! And I was surprised at my giddiness. For the remainder of the week, as I noticed all the blues and rectangles, and blue rectangles, I linked those shapes and colors to the statement “I DO finish what I set out to do!” “I DO keep my promises!” “I am trustworthy!” “I am so proud of myself!”
Now I find myself looking forward to finding the shapes and colors, on reading the BPB and my DMP’s, and all our other homework tasks. I am building new habits! And it makes my DMP more and more believable as I read it.
Remembering that my internal world and thoughts affect my outside world now helps me to stop negative thoughts that threaten to creep in within a second. I find myself guarding my peace with determination, and in term my outer world gets more peaceful day by day.
The processes are great! I know how you feel about these cards…..
Congratulations on your EPIC discovery during your journey baby! So very PROUD of you & the patience & grace you have given yourself💜

Amazing observtions as a result of simple exercises. Great job persisting to overcome the resistance and perhaps most importantly keeping an open mind.
Hi Stefanie, your last sentence is especially gratifying to read, as is your entire blog. From doubt, to pride in accomplishment. I am adopting your “I DO…” Thanks for the tip. You got this!
Wonderful Miss Stefanie, “I DO finish what I set out to do!” “I DO keep my promises!” “I am trustworthy!” “I am so proud of myself!”
Amazing what a simple exercise can do, right? Imagine what you will accomplish in six months of simple exercises!
Stephanie, your #MKE accomplishment is beauty to behold! 🙂
