So were do I begin. I guess at the beginning. For my MKMMA Sunday this week. It is the only Sunday we would miss this seminar. We had committed to a Basic coarse with another group a month ago. Our weekend was booked up Friday thru Sunday. Our friend Lance had asked us to attend and he really believed in the coarse. One of the many things we have learned the last few week was I promise, I always keep my promises. We have written it and said it out load quit a few times. MKMMA it is in everything we do. That was really tested this weekend.
Thursday night it all started. First off my son had some friends over. ( He has been asked not to bring his friends to our house) It was after midnight closer to one when we were awaken. I had him send them home. About 3:30 am we got a knock on the door. One on them had lost his wallet. He was very upset and was blaming my son for stealing it. I had them leave and said we would look for it in the morning. It was never found. So we got up that morning, did our MKMMA readings and got ready for that Fridays seminar. No worse for ware and excited to see what our new adventure was. First day was nice and they had gone over a lot of things we had been working on. We headed home then we get a phone call. It was my son our house had been robbed. To make a long story short. It sucked. We had a rough night. We had a lot taken. I never even got upset at the things being taken, I did have a few words for my son. (longer story)
Point is it would have been easy to get up and not finished the classes. You know to break a promise and quit. I was just not about that. We got up did our day. ( it was a rough day personally in the class) it really was a day of learning about yourself. It is not pretty when you head home. There is a lot of personal things you are looking over about you. Plus some homework on top of that. We get home Saturday I do what I need to get done. I had just finished the last of my nightly MKMMA readings. I get a phone call around 9:30. (personal what happened. not there yet) I ended up at the ER till 1:30 in the morning. Then back again at 5. Got a whole 3 hours of sleep. Now I really had an excuse not to finish. Not to go to class the next day. But I made a Promise….
So I woke up.. Told myself I was full of energy, and chose to keep my promises. I finished class that day. Made Some life long friends and grew personally more than I could imagine. It was one of the best and worse weekends I have ever had. I had every excuse to quit. In hindsight I was lucky enough to start MKMMA a few weeks before all this. It really came down to. I made a promise. I always keep my promises. That statement keep me focused on the task and why I was there. I wanted a better me.
It is amazing what life can throw at you. It is true that it is your thoughts and reaction how you handle it.
Love to all.. Jeff
