I am committed to maintaining Unwavering Faith that I will Create a professional photography business, and I will put forth Extraordinary Effort until I do, no matter what…there is no other option
The reason I am committed to my mission is because I will be able to live with less stress, enjoy my time off, and help Ron in creating and living the life we want to live together.
To ensure that the attainment of my mission is inevitable, I will remain committed to my process of working in and on my business 8 hours a day for 40 hours a week by creating and following my business plan, without being emotionally attached to my results.
I am committed to my mission and maintain Unwavering Faith while putting forth Extraordinary Effort, because I know that I am just as worthy, deserving, and capable of creating tangible, measurable miracles and achieving everything I want, as any other person on earth.
I had a Dr. appt at 9 am in Williamsport, left around 745 am, got there on time, absolutely no traffic! My appointment went well, the dr. has put in a prescription for a reduced serving (is that the right word?) of Venalafaxin. I am going to take this smaller dosage, and after a month, see how my body is doing, and where I am with self care. If possible, after the month the Dr. said we can look at me coming off of the medication completely. I am still continuing at the same dosage of Wellbutrin, and we will look at that following the changes in my first prescription.
This is probably some of the best news I have had in awhile. First, it allows Ron and me to seriously start thinking about pregnancy. Due to the medication, it is not safe for me to get pregnant while taking it, because of the additional changes in hormones my body would undergo. This also lines up with my goal to be off the anti-depressants by the end of 2020. I have been taking this medication for several years, and while it is longer than most, there have been several major changes in my life which threw me for one hell of a loop.
With this change in prescriptions, it is imperative I maintain awareness of my emotional levels along with adjustments my body undergoes. I am going to keep a much more detailed log of what is going on in my life, and since I am journaling for the Miracle Equation, I will combine the journals, instead of creating additional work. Obviously, there will be some details I don't include in the blog, but I will still be as transparent as possible.
On the way home, I listened to the Sparkle Mail videos. This is another workshop I dabbled in, but never actually followed through with incorporating in to my business. With the decrease in activity and interactions, I am going to be using these next 2 weeks to truly get the systems and processes in my business in place. This is in line with my mission of creating and following a business plan to establish and maintain a professional photography business.
When I got home, I washed all of the dishes, and had intent to make pancakes. Unfortunately, Ron does not love pancakes like I do, so it ended up being waffles instead. Not just any waffles though, these were magical unicorn waffles with rainbow unicorn vanilla chips. I also burnt the bacon. One day, I will master the art of frying bacon, but that is another goal, for another day. After eating waaaaaayyyyyyyy more than I should have, Ron and I snuggled on the couch and I fell asleep. I woke up around 3ish, and continued to be entirely unproductive. At this point I decided it best to put the phone down and actually get something done.
Last night, Cricket decided he wanted a late night snack of skunk, so he got a bath. Jiminy Bear was extremely upset he received so much attention and that he was clean and fresh and fluffy, so today was her turn. While she still gets excited about her bath time, she also has learned that by hiding, she gets even more attention because we have to pick her up, this is her favorite because we are touching her more. She is such a brat. Bath time with her is very easy. She just stands there and lets you love her. In fact she will let you know which parts she is ready for you to clean by rotating and ensuring she is positioned for you to scrub that spot next. Then it was brush time. I am not sure what she loves more, baths or brushing, but by the end I had a half trashcan full of fur.
I went back to sleep at some point, had a ton of snack food (dried mango, graham crackers with peanut butter), and scrolled through Pinterest. And then………Jiminy rolled in the manure spread on the field next door. So bath number 2. After wasting more time playing Mario Kart, watching something on tv, and phone scrolling, it became apparent it was time for bed.
I will assess my process and progress at the end of every work day on this blog. To assess I will answer the following questions
What was my biggest win towards my mission in the last 24 hours?
My biggest win is realizing i need to have next steps for myself
Did I follow through with my process?
does listening to the workshop while driving home count?
What was my biggest area of improvement?
Is there anything I could be doing differently or better?
Keep track of the work I do throughout the day and assess my day, call every business owner I know and talk about what they are doing and how I can help, reach out to clients to see what they need in their lives, create something to position myself as an expert, working on the business that i have been putting off
What lessons have I learned so far?
i need human interaction
Are there any changes/adjustment to my Process that I need to make?
my process needs to be restated because just making myself do time is like checking the box
Is there anyone else I can reach out to for advice or feedback?
i dont even know what i would be getting feedback on at this point
