Week 7 of the Journey #MKMMA

This week one of the key ideas that stood out was about my future self.

I can appreciate Mark’s passion when he explained to us how important it is to do these exercises and get familiar with our future self. If we don’t, we will treat them like a stranger and procrastinate, make excuses, and eventually quit this quest of improvement.

As I pondered this thought, the details about the study that was mentioned played back in my head. My future self is a stranger if I choose not to get to know her better, if I don’t spend time with her now she will not be what I want for her to be.

I also considered the words of scroll I, ” I will walk tall among men and they will know me not, for today I am a new man, with a new life.” I believe that in order for others to look at me and not recognize who I have become, I will have to get to know my future self now better and better, until I become her.

Wow! I have some more becoming to do.  And the journey continues…

  1. I enjoyed your blog, Melody! I’m not sure of how to conceptualize the future me. I’m at the point in life where I am beginning to pay attention to wrinkles and I’ve been covering grey hairs for a couple of years; and, I have to say, I’m not always thrilled when I peer into the mirror. I guess I look more and more like my mother as I get older, and I’m really not sure how I feel about that, so this whole endeavor is a little daunting, if you ask me! I feel like I need some sort of a guide book on the subject. I’ll be interested to hear how you progress, Melody! Thanks!

    1. Thank you for reading! It can be overwhelming, but there is also the option of embracing who you are as you are becoming who you want to be. It is a choice worth making!
