Week 9: Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Contest - What Are You Thankful For?It is great that we have a national day of thanksgiving.  It is my favorite holiday.

It is a holiday that reminds us to spend time with our children.  Children grow up so quickly and that time can never be recaptured.  The Thanksgiving holiday reminds us to hug our spouses and significant others, because even a lifetime together will quickly vanish away.

The Thanksgiving holiday reminds us to cherish our friendships.  Sometimes due to the twists and turns of life, we get so “busy” that we don’t spend enough time with our friends.  I was reminded, sadly, earlier this year that good friends will not be around forever.

I am so committed to creating time and financial freedom for myself and my family.  I want more time with my family and friends.  This Master Key Master Mind Alliance (MKMMA) course is helping me to make that happen.  From our reading this week:

Character is not a thing of chance, but it is the result of continued effort. If you are timid, vacillating, self-conscious, or if you are over-anxious or harassed by thoughts of fear or impending danger, remember that is axiomatic that “two things cannot exist in the same place at the same time.”

Exactly the same thing is true in the mental and spiritual world; so that your remedy is plainly to substitute thoughts of courage, power, self-reliance and confidence, for those of fear, lack and limitation.

The easiest and most natural way to do this is to select an affirmation which seems to fit your particular case.

The positive thought will destroy the negative as certainly as light destroys darkness, and the results will be just as effectual.

Parting thought:  Were you very busy in 2014, too busy for friends and family?  Do you think you will be less busy by 2016 if you don’t do something different, starting right now?

Do it now.

I have come so far already.  Today I begin a new life.

It is definitely time to ‘Think and Grow Rich’.

  1. You are so right about time passing too quickly and being mindful of spending time with the people we love. As you pointed out, it takes thought and deliberate change to make sure this happens. Thank you!
