Week 14 was a very difficult week for me! I have to say that if it were not for the MKMMA I may have been a much worse situation though. I had some struggles at my workplace that caught me completely off guard and I struggled to maintain my composure on more than one occasion! I kept thinking “it is not what happens to you in life but how you react to it that matters”. I’m not even sure where this came from but the voice in my head was definitely Mark J. I was able to keep my mouth shut and not insert my foot in to it so I am very grateful for this. Had I spoke my feelings at the time I think I would be looking for a new job right now!!
I am also very glad that we are reading scroll four of Og Mandino’s “The Greatest Salesman in the World”right now because I was reminded three times a day that “now I know a great secret of life for I perceive, at last, that all my problems, discouragements, and heartaches are, in truth, great opportunities disguise. I will no longer be fooled by the garments they wear for mine eyes are open. I will look beyond the cloth and I will not be deceived.” I found this line encouraging and have been sitting daily for ideas to solve my problem as well as how I can use this opportunity for growth. Og States that” I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth will I apply all my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy.”
So I am off to sit again and work through this opportunity I have been given by the Universe!
