I have spent this past week in several hours of self-reflection as I answered the guided journal exercise. This is the first exercise in the Brave Girls Club Soul Restoration 2 online course which I started last Tuesday. I, like other class members, tend to over think the answers as if we are being graded by some cosmic headmaster and the fruition of our future dreams and visions depend on saying "just the right thing." Oh, I wish it were true. I wish that just by writing down over and over again that I am achieving balance and letting go of old hurts that I can wake up tomorrow or the next day with it all figured out. I do believe with all of my heart that the laws of attraction bring to us what we ask for. But what if we ask for the wrong thing? What if we don't have a clue what we really want? The what ifs will make us crazy.
I wish I had a way to do a word usage generator on a handwritten document. I have a feeling several words would float to the top of the leader board: Balance. Abundance. Letting Go. Family. Friends. Peace. Harmony. Fairness. Equality. Healing. These are definitely the things I hope for - for me... for my family. But is this enough? How do we ever know? I guess that's part of the discovery process. Being open and receptive to whatever the Universe wants for each of us - and being flexible - allows the abundance to flow to and through us. At least that's what I intend to attract!
I can't wait for next week's class. I can't wait to see where this path is leading. Now if I could only find the motivation I need to start writing on my dissertation chapters!
