Have you ever had one of those “Oh, sh*t” moments when you realize that you back in the same place (figuratively) you tried to leave? One of the byproducts of reading a lot is you’ll re-read many things. As I sat down the other day to read Sonia Ricotti’s “Unsinkable”, I barely got into the first chapter when it hit me like a slap in the face. For those of you who may not know Sonia, she is a “law of attraction” author and teacher. In a nutshell, even as an author and teacher, she suffered a tremendous setback in her personal life. And obviously the book is about the rebound. Now back to me, I have been studying and reading (and practicing) those “to do’s” to deliberately create. I have had some successes but not the big one I keep looking for. I thought I was doing what I was supposed to and I was to a certain extent. As I said, there was something in her book that woke me up to see what was really going on. I have been going through the motions, doing the meditating, writing, reading, affirmations etc…BUT…I am right where I started. In the same physical place, with the same people, doing much of the same things I always did. It was like a treadmill, always moving but going nowhere. On the positive side because there is always good in a situation, I’ve gotten a lot of practice. So as Enstein said, “If I continue doing the things I’ve always done, I will continue to get what I’ve always gotten.” (paraphrased).
So here’s to another new beginning, changing me so I can change my life.
