This week as the title suggests, was a potpourri of emotions for me. Thoughts about the MKE and my progress, the future, my dreams, goals, challenges, all came like a tornado through my mind. It did not help that Og Mandino’s- the Greatest Salesman’s focus this time around was about being master of our emotions. I could not for the life of me, put my finger on what made me so emotional this week.
Sometimes when I think about what the Master Key Experience is all about- changing bad habits for good ones, owning our greatness and potential, living a life of gratitude and enthusiasm etc. I feel a little hesitant to share or express feelings or thoughts that are not very positive. It is so very interesting that most of the thoughts shared by Og Mandino, reflected exactly how I was feeling-” Inside me is a wheel constantly turning from sadness to joy, from exultation to depression, from happiness to melancholy…” What was happening to me? Was it the cold weather here in ‘sunny California?’ Was it hormonal? Was it this? Was it that? I tried to “recognize and identify the mystery of (my) moods…”
After much thought and wrangling with the thoughts and emotions, I had to make the decision to proactively deal with what I was experiencing. I remembered that I am Nature’s Greatest Miracle on the way to becoming the Greatest Salesman. Og reminded me in the Scroll Marked VI, that if I feel depressed I must sing, and if I feel sad I should laugh… Remembering this sent me to one of the things that salves my mood, emotions, thoughts- music, and one of my favorite artists- Lauren Daigle. The song that brought me back into the place of gratitude, peace, productivity etc is ” You Say.” https://youtu.be/N8WK9HmF53w
This song puts it all in perspective for me because it reminds me who I am despite my emotions and other negative feelings. It reminds me why I believe the way I do because of my connection or relationship with my Omniscient and Omnipotent Creator, and it reminds that all is well. Then like Og Mandino, I say, ” I become master of myself. I become great.”
I always keep my Promises!
