This week I had to step back a bit and try to regroup. Everything seems to be up-side-down and in-side-out. My mind feels scrambled. This is the 2nd week of the
and I have been awaken to a habit of mine that I am not so much of a fan of. I spew my opinion everywhere, on everyone and with no apparent provocation. Yesterday while my daughter, wife and I were out to dinner, I worked very hard to keep my opinion to myself. Multiple times I stopped myself mid-sentence, mid-opinion. I was commended by my daughter after the dinner on how enjoyable it was, I was. She said it was so nice that I wasn’t injecting into our conversation what I would have said or what I would have done. Wait…what?! Yup. I am still basking in the glory of just this one little achievement.
Earlier, I had acquired a parking pass that I chose to give to an elderly couple that was leaving the hospital with us. It cost us $5 for our parking. As we were settling into our seats at the restaurant, a woman leaving dropped a certificate onto our table and smiled. My wife picked it up and just the expression on her face was priceless. You’re not going to believe this, she said, here’s your $5 back from the parking ticket you gave away!?
I know I am doing what I need to and what I should be now. The incredible guidance of the MKMMA has kept me engaged and on course. It is because of signs and successes that I have decided to stay the course! It is not easy. I have my victories and I have my failures, but I know that for the man in the mirrors future, I have no option but to continue.
Here’s a video that just re-enforces what the MKMMA is doing to help us and our lives. Most of the time it felt like she was talking to and about me. Romila “Dr. Romie” Mushtaq, MD is a traditionally trained neurologist and an expert in the field of mind-body medicine. I hope it means as much to you as it does to me when you watch it.
