Week 1

When I first learned of this assignment, I had the same feeling I have every time I set out to write a new post. What am I going to write about?  So, in order not to dwell on it, I decided to read the first week’s material and put the blog post out of mind, figuring that inspiration would strike at some point.  It wasn’t until I got to the last page of the workbook and started to read the Blueprint Builder.  I read the first paragraph and immediately knew that I had found the topic for my first entry.

For the past six months, I have been looking at that same paragraph each time I sit down at my desk.  It was something that I had copied in my own handwriting onto a 3×5 lined index card.  At the beginning of the year I began reading Think and Grow Rich.  I had read it a couple of times before, but felt that it was something that I needed to read again.  After learning that there was a workbook that went along with the book, I immediately purchased it and began the exercises. I copied the same paragraph from the workbook and hung it up on my wall.  I look at it often and have actually considered taking it down because sometimes it triggers anxiety and frustration because I haven’t figured out what my definite purpose in life is.  Now, this week I have been assigned to write my blog post and also to create, in writing, my Definite Major Purpose.

During the last two weeks since I made the decision to apply for the scholarship, there have been so many signs that have reaffirmed my reason for doing this.  It always amazes me how when I truly listen and watch, the signs are all around me.  They always are, it’s just that at times I don’t see them. Sometimes I feel like I am out of synch with the universe, while other times the synchronicity blows my mind.  These last two weeks have been overwhelming, in an amazing, crazy way.  I can’t wait to experience all that this journey will bring with it.  I know without a doubt that I am right where I am supposed to be at this moment and it feels incredible!  I am hopeful, I am excited, I am electrified, and I am ready to begin this journey.

This is what I see when I look up from my computer screen.  The little white card is the First paragraph of the BPB.
