Day 26 – The 30 Day Personal Growth Challenge

To blindly follow the crowd, without question, is the fear of being different; the fear of being YOURSELF.

It doesn’t matter the crowd; society; country; religion…

When you follow YOUR heart and do what’s rightinstead of what is ‘socially or religiously acceptable’; YOUR thoughts, words, and actions begin to align. This is the first step toward true wisdom…and that’s personal growth 😊

Day 18 – The 30 Day Personal Growth Challenge

The harder YOU try; the more YOU work against the free flowing nature of the Universe.

Letting go doesn’t mean, letting go of the steering wheel while you’re driving down the freeway 😜

But rather, letting go of attachments and expectations – to outcomes; knowing that things will unfold naturally.

Worry and stress won’t change the outcome; they will only leave you depleted, unhappy, and unhealthy.

So this weekend, try something different and new. Make it spontaneous; unplanned; a real adventure! Be in the moment and enjoy the ride 💜

Have a great weekend my friends.

My day was fabulous! When my nephew and I had our adventure on Bateman Island last week, we noticed how much litter had been left behind. He and I decided to return, armed with garbage bags and tidy up a bit 😜

Well today, along with three additional family members (we recruited 😜),  my nephew and I returned to the island.

 

 
It was a beautiful day and we had a Great time AND we carried out 7 bags of trash.

It wasn’t even work; because we were doing something together; it was FUN!

Day 7 (PM) – We’re going on a Magical ADVENTURE…

pooh adventure

Day 7 – The 30 Day Personal Growth Challenge

Today my nephew and I went on an Adventure!

“Where are we going?” he asked inquisitively…”somewhere magical” I replied.

We got together a few necessities; water, snacks, etc and we were off…

We drove to the river and parked. “We’re here” I said, as he anxiously looked around.

“The river?” he questioned, “I thought we were going on a magical adventure? What’s magical about the river?” he said a bit deflatedly. “I don’t know yet” I replied, “that’s why it’s an ADVENTURE!”.

We got out of the truck and walked toward the river. “The first thing we need” I said, “is a good walking stick!”. We soon both found acceptable walking sticks and the journey began.

IMG_3716

As we walked toward the land bridge and across to Bateman Island, I asked my nephew if he had brought his magic wand. “No” he replied, rather surprised by my question. “What?” I exlaimed, “…well we better find one on our way then.”

We continued our journey and a few minutes later, he looked down and exclaimed “I found it! The PERFECT magic wand.” I smiled big and said “great job buddy”, and after a quick high-five, we continued walking; each with our walking sticks and he with our MAGIC wand.

Bateman Island is beautiful. As we walked we saw grasshoppers, dragonflies, ants, and birds. Grass, sand, rocks, plants, trees, and then we came upon some beautiful yellow wildflowers.

IMG_3723

We both stopped to admire them and I said “What do you want to make?”. “Make?” he said curiously. “You know, with your magic wand…what do you want to make?”, I said with a grin. He looked at the small stick (magic wand) and then at me. “It’s just a stick Uncle Matt” he says, with a bit of attitude.

I laughed “How do you know? You haven’t even tried to use it yet”. I got an eye roll as he said “I don’t know what to make…”. “Make WHATEVER you want” I replied.

With that, he looked at me; and again at the stick. He smiled, waved this stick in the air and said “I’m going to make some purple flowers”, and with a quick “Abracadabra“, it was done. “And now the adventure begins…” I said as we started walking again; in search of his ‘creation’.

IMG_3719

The weather was perfect and the view incredible. We both walked silently for some time. As we rounded a bend in the trail we came across some more flowers. “Not purple!” he states and continues walking. I stop and snap a couple of pics anyway 😜

IMG_3722 IMG_3718IMG_3725

After a long silence, he looks at me and says “It didn’t work…” and before he could finish his sentence, he looked down and saw HIS flowers.

“Uncle Matt, Uncle Matt…IT WORKED!!!…Look” as he pointed to his right.

IMG_3721

Sure enough…purple flowers. He was ecstatic! We stood and admired them for a bit. He was elated that OUR magic wand had actually worked.

This time I didn’t have to ask what he was going to make, because he was using his magic wand non-stop 😊

“I’m making birds now – Abracadabra

“I’m making trees now – Abracadabra

IMG_3724

“I’m making EVERYTHING now – Abracadabra”

My nephew was HOOKED and our adventure continued; as we rounded each bend, we talked about all of the beautiful things HE had MADE for us to see. “OH WOW, you did a great job on this!…how did you make that?” I said, as he showed ME all the cool stuff HE had made come out of that little stick.

IMG_3720

We had a Most Excellent Magical Adventure!

IMG_3717

I love that kid💜

I hope YOU had an excellent magical adventure of your own today!

The first 7 days of the challenge have been incredible for me. Some difficult, some scary, but most – FANTABULOUS! I am seeing the world and everything in it differently somehow. I AM CHANGING; and that’s personal growth.

With peace, love, and gratitude,

Day 3 – The Insanity of it ALL…

Albert-Einstein-Insanity-Quote

Day 3 – The 30 Day Personal Growth Challenge

I went to visit a friend today. When I arrived, he was visibly upset and frustrated.

He explained that his toilet wasn’t working; that he had gone out and purchased new parts and replaced the entire ‘inside’ workings of the toilet; and it STILL WASNT WORKING! He was PISSED OFF! He walked away feeling defeated.

After a break, he calmed down enough and went back to TRY again. He said that when he returned, he noticed that the PROBLEM was NOT with the parts he had just spent two hours replacing, but rather the flush handle/arm and chain 😡 (that’s a different/separate part altogether for those not in the know 😊).

He immediately went from zero to PISSED OFF…again;

(how did I not see that before I replaced EVERYTHING else)

(how could I be so stupid)

(I’m a f**king idiot)

So off to the store, AGAIN, to get the RIGHT part THIS TIME!

He said he returned home and went right to work on the new task. It was a SIMPLE thing now. Just unscrew the plastic nut on the back side of the handle, pull the handle out, insert the new handle, place and tighten the plastic nut on the back side of the handle. SIMPLE! Right?!?

He thought to himself, “lefty loosey righty tighty”, as he began to remove the plastic nut. With that, using his pliers, he turned left (counter clockwise) on the nut. Nothing! It wouldn’t budge…WTF…as he REALLY put his weight into ‘loosening’ the F**KING NUT! After several more failed attempts and a substantial increase in his blood pressure, he was defeated again.

He walks away and opens the package with the new handle. If he inspected the new handle, he thought, he might be able to figure it out. As he looked at the new handle and compared it to the old one (still firmly attached to the toilet); they were identical! Finally some HOPE.

He decided to remove the plastic nut from the new handle, hoping for some insight into removing the old handle. “Lefty loosey righty tighty” he thought as he grasped the nut and twisted it with his hand…NOTHING…it wouldn’t budge! F**K, F**K, F**K!!!

It’s at THIS point that I arrive at my friends house.

After calmly listening to him RANT/VENT/TIRADE; he asked for my help. I smiled and said ‘OF COURSE 💜’.

First I asked him to take a few deep breaths; TOGETHER, WE could do this…

We went into the bathroom; he showed me the old handle (still firmly attached the toilet); and the new identical handle (plastic nut still firmly attached).

As I looked at the situation, from my OWN/NEW perspective, a memory immediately came to me, a time when I myself had been in the same situation.

At that moment; a thought; a voice…’I before E except after C’?!? Huh? What?…AHA!

Exceptions to the ‘RULE’! I smiled and was grateful for SEEING beyond the task at hand and allowing myself to listen and hear this message.

You see, the plastic nuts on toilet handles are an ‘exception’ to the ‘lefty loosey righty tighty’ RULE! I took the pliers, twisted right (clockwise), and Voila; plastic nut DEFEATED!

My friend stood there, dumbfounded. After a moment we both began laughing hysterically. Problem Solved! SIMPLE! He confessed he had never even considered turning the nut clockwise. THAT was against the RULE(s) 😁

And now to the point…finally 😊

There is always more than one way to look at situation, but when our ‘automatic thinking brain’ takes over, and we refuse to consider other options; rules and beliefs become our guide; we close ourselves off from hearing that little voice that says ‘I  before E except after C’.

When you get stuck, frustrated, or just plain PISSED OFF; STOP and BREATHE. Step away for a minute and just BREATHE: calm down; relax.

There is always more than one way to do something; look at something. When you’re able to calm down and look at the situation subjectively, for what it really is, you’re then able to hear the little voice that says ‘I before E except after C’; and that’s personal growth!

How was your Day 3?

The End of Day 2…


Day 2 – The 30 Day Personal Growth Challenge

Today was a day of quiet reflection for me.

I realized how often I compare what I’m thinking and feeling in the NOW, to past experiences and outcomes. I saw how FEAR was preventing me from seeing things as they really are; preventing me from living FULLY in the present.

It was a huge AHA moment!

I hope each of you had an AHA moment of your own today 🙂

I’ve heard from a lot of people, all with incredible stories and great new insights into themselves; after the first day of the challenge. Wow!

I am so blessed and grateful to each and every one of you! I’m happy we are in this together!

Tao Te Ching – Chapter 55

IMG_3339

55

“Whoever is filled with Virtue is like a new-born child.

Wasps and scorpions will not sting it; snakes and serpents will not bite it; wild animals will not attack it; birds of prey will not swoop down on it.

Its bones are soft, its muscles weak, and yet its grip is firm.

It does not know of male and female union and yet its organ stirs; its vital energy is at its height.

It cries throughout the day and yet is never hoarse; its harmony is at its height.

To know harmony is to know the eternal.

To know the eternal is to know enlightenment.

To speed the growth of life is an omen of disaster; to control the breath by will-power is to overstrain it; to grow too much is to decay.

All this is against the Dao and whatever is against the Dao soon dies.”

– Translated by Tom Chilcott, 2005, Chapter 55
