This week was a struggle. I was lucky enough to have a cousin visit this week from New York. The last time I saw her was in 1999, and she was fifteen. Even though I did not remember her from 1999, having her here in Honolulu was an absolute pleasure. It was her first trip to Hawaii, so a fair amount of sightseeing she wanted to do. My brother Jim took care of most of that, but I did my part too. She was here for a week, and I wish it could have been longer.
I was preoccupied and could have done better on my MKE assignments. I missed quite a few readings and the new index cards I did not write out. On the way to an early morning hike, the tire pressure light on my car came on. I had to start my mental diet over as we had to go to two gas stations to find one with an air pump. It took another gas station and a Starbucks to find a bathroom. After the four stops, we finally made it to the trail. We had a great hike with great views from the top. We finished in time for her to shower, pack and get to the airport later that day.
I had a great week. I did not get this blog done or my index cards. I missed readings and had to start my mental diet over. It was all okay because sometimes there are more important things than assignments.
I’m glad you made your visit with your cousin a priority, what a wonderful experience for you both. And I see you are catching up on the blogging, good for you!
Life was your teacher. Congratulations! Happy New Year!
Yes, life does bring its challenges, John! 🙂
Glad to hear you experienced such memorable quality time with your cousin John. Good job on being aware of your MKE mental exercises- friendly reminder from this moment going forward, to only focus energy and attention on all that you are positively thinking and doing; applying the Law of Growth- what we focus on grows. Cheering you on!
