I didn’t realize we’d be off & running with so much to do right at first. I thought we’d maybe ease into it a little at a time. I almost feel like a kid starting school again. Nervous & excited. But also a little scared that I might not be able to keep up with everything. Especially with having to raise a child on my own(which has been ill the past few years) & tend to other family, keep a home & everything else going on.
However, I think I’m off to a pretty good start so far. Although its only been a few days of the first week. I started reading the scrolls or rather the 1st scroll, 3 times a day as instructed. The first 2 in silence and the 3rd at night aloud. So I got that down.
The part where we’re supposed to sit still, completely still for 15 minutes, I’m having a little trouble with. When I first heard about it, I thought it would be easy. However, it really isn’t all that easy, for me any way. At least starting out right now. I’m so used to always running & moving that its really hard for me to sit completely still. I’ve gotten up to about 10 minutes. But then my arms, legs or eyes or something else wants to move. So then I have to start over. I spent a couple hours last night trying to sit still but I had to give up after a while so I could get some sleep. I’ll try again tonight.
Also, I’m to write a DMP. A Definite Major Purpose. This is the first time I’ve ever heard of this. And, I have no clue what to even begin to write. I’m assuming that its about what I want to do with my life & what’s important to me. But to be sure I’ll have to look into it a little more. And maybe get some outlines or ideas. Or even ask for some help.
I also started on the work book. I’ve printed out & read the first chapter & review questions. I will go through it again & highlight some things that stand out to me.
I am also completing my first blog entry. I started a blog before. But I only wrote a few entries & wasn’t really sure what else to write about. Then life got in the way. And then I forgot about it.
So now I’m off to work on my DMP. Wish me luck!
Have a great day!!!
