Week 7 Experience

It’s beginning to be more real – the life of my dreams or the created vs the reported world.

The life I choose from the inside out.

For many years I had lived by coping and compromising all the while still dreaming and imagining. I would “control” the areas I could be responsible for but was still attached to an old set of patterns that kept me confused and the gold diminished.

Week 7 we are on a 7 day mental diet. This very supportive component to cleaning out the long over due need of decluttering of mental garbage is a fun challenge. All of the daily actions are so much easier, like second nature now. It’s so much easier to prune the vine of weeds and dead heads.

Parts of my life seems surreal now. So I just continue to do the work. Trust. Know. Be. Love. Love. Love.

I read this from Bret Lockett and I think it’s perfectly aligned with what I’m trying to do.  When I first started MKMMA there were many action items, this doesn’t slow down but I like the idea of starting and ending my day with this clear focus.

 “Most people wake up reactively, adhering to the world’s needs, not their own.” In a world of unlimited communication, people don’t disconnect from society to analyze their lives.

 The first two hours of your day should be spent aligning your short-term efforts with your long-term goals. I wake up during the week at 3:30 a.m., taking the time to meditate and read for 20 minutes. Then I spend an hour doing an intensive workout like circuit training or hiking.

The last two hours of your day dictates your energy for the next day. I spend an hour studying or learning a new skill, and the last hour planning my next day.

Learn to work harder on yourself than your job.” Bret Lockett, former NFL player, and senior partner of M2Jets; connect with M2Jets on Instagram

I’ll write more late in the week but this is my Tuesday action step.

  1. I enjoy your posts and totally agree that it is so much easier to “prune the vine of weeds and dead heads”. By choose I am a very positive person and I am amazed at how many times I still have negative thoughts that keep popping up, just like unwanted weeds. Blessings on your journey!

    • Thank you Shery. I love the visual of dead heading the hydrangea. That’s what I call subby. Dead head, so the blossoms can spring to life when ready!! Love and blessings to you as well!

  2. Dear Stephana,
    You seem to be a very disciplined person. I admire that and wish I could sleep when it’s time to sleep (like now for instance 🙂 1am here) and wake early with mother nature. I still haven’t found how to circumvent Subby, if that’s him which tries to exhaust me day and night. Your post led me that that reflection.
    Love, love, love… and Love me now, still awake at 1am writing to you, Stephana 🙂
    Thank you <3

    • Dear Sweet Sophie! I feel for you. For too long I had insomnia. Miserable. But I embraced it, and used as time to write. I wrote a lot about the demons that were keeping me from resting and also picked up some natural melatonin. Stay the course. Yes, I’m meticulously disciplined when it comes to my well being, and that’s all there is for me now. I spent too many years at the whim of others. Maybe it comes with age? Sending you love and hugs. Sweet dreams.

  3. Stephana,

    I love your advice to take at least an hour after waking and 2 hours before going to bed, starting with setting your intention for the day (mental development and physical exercise); and, also end with learning and next-day planning!! It gives me something to think about!

  4. I know I’m not technically in your group, but I just started coloring outside the l8 es and randomly checking out other Master Key “kids,” and found your blog. I love it! And, you are 100% correct, happiness does not come in a pill. I am enjoying your blog posts.

  5. Wow, Stephana – I am in awe of how you have structured your day. Waking up at 3:30 am is like amazing! The earliest I used to wake up was at 4:45 am and that was most of 2016 because I was planning and preparing myself to climb Kilimanjaro. I would love to go back to waking up at 5 am, although at the moment I have a body clock which wants to sleep at midnight and wake-up at 7 or 8 am. What strategies would you recommend?

    • It’s part of my dmp so I say it 3 times a day with enthusiasm. That’s intention! I know I need to go to bed earlier in order to wake up at that time and be happy about it.
