MKE Week 2 – Smiles and chuckles
With the intro week done, the work to a new beginning starts. While I was intentionally looking for blue rectangles this week, I seen a blue bag full of candy sitting on the counter. I had to chuckle when I noticed what type of candies they were … life savers. I know, cheesy right??, is it a sign that this is where I am supposed to be? I will take this type of sign over the ones that Jeff Foxworthy hands out 😊.
Mark J and The Fab D, along with the other coaches, have stressed how important it is to listen to or read all the directions to the end before beginning to take on a specific task. We were asked to write down a chore and promise to have that chore done by Sunday. Well, I really didn’t understand the exercise well enough when I wrote my chore out. I, mistakenly, understood it needed to be a chore that required us to pick away at it every day instead of leaving it to the last minute, as procrastinators seem to do. The replays of the webinars are great, because what I discovered is that I had kind of overcommitted myself, this was an exercise for conditioning subby and not for perseverance. It did cross my mind to adjust my chore when I understood the assignment, but I had already written it down and made the promise to myself to accomplish my chore. I accomplished the whole task by Thursday because after all… I ALWAYS KEEP MY PROMISES.
These are just 2 examples of how things go in my life. I have learned how to smile at the thoughts that make others roll their eyes, and laugh at myself when I make mistakes that don’t hurt others or myself.
Have an awesome week everyone. Keep on smiling, it works.
