Week 17 – Happiness & Accountability

Conversation @ Salsa Night – Part 1

One of my goals to support my DMP is to make it out it out to Salsa Night every Saturday Night.  So last night was my night to get my Dancing Sillies out…. It was a great night… its probably the first time I was actually on the Dance floor for practically the entire time. I had a brief discussion with one of the ladies there which reinforce some key aspects to this course and I wanted to acknowledge and show my gratitude for this experience.

She had drawn to the fact that my last night could be Jewish … I explained that it the nature of the origins were German in my case as my dad immigrated from Germany during WW2… She had asked me If I had learn to speak German, my reply was that my parents never taught me.  She playfully challenged me in her reply.  She asked me how old I was… I replied “I’m 37” I’m paraphrasing here but her reply was along the lines of at 37 years old there was nothing stopping me from learning… and the only one responsible for not learning was me… That I was the one that had accountability within that respect.  Is this not true for everything in life? Are we not accountable for every choice we make whether we are aware of it or not.

This was a great lesson in terms of the language and how we speak in terms of being effective creators in this world.  For me to say “Mom and Grandmother never taught  me” was posting a blame on someone else outside of myself.  It was pointing my finger at the worth without and letting the effects determine what emotions, idea’s and beliefs behind it.  I am writing this post because I’ve noticed that the old blueprint may show up in ways we don’t expect. But the language and science behind what we say is still exact.  It was a beautiful example of my experiences helping me along and becoming my own observer. We must be ever vigilant!

Conversation @ Salsa Night – Part 2

Our conversation moved into a discussion about documentaries. She had mentioned a documentary she watched about Jackie Robinson The Baseball Player . We just got to talking about TV watching habits. She mentioned she only watches Documentaries and Comedy… and the reasoning behind this would be right in line with the 7 Day Mental Diet. Why fill your brain with things that don’t contribute to your ultimate happiness???  It was an inspirational experience for me because its a reflection of someone who’s blueprint has no room for things that don’t bring her joy.  I’ve always been a SCI-FI fan. I’ve grown up on Star Trek TNG…. (Yeah Fabulous Davene .. I think we can be friends…. 🙂  hehe ) I enjoyed each episode because there was a general theme to everyone that taught a life lesson… but I see how a lot of the stuff I’ve watched on TV has not been so much in line with Joy and Happiness.   A reminded of ways I can be nicer to myself and increase the quality of the Broad Cloth I use to weave the tapestry of my life….  PS there is a great mv5bmjayotcznzyzmf5bml5banbnxkftztgwmzc5ndg0mje-_v1_uy268_cr870182268_al_episode called “Tapestry” where the Captain of the Enterprise is critically wounded and an omnipotent being called “Q” givens him the chance to undo certain mistakes he has made and live a life without these “Mistakes” only to find out that these actions shaped his life gave him the wisdom he needed and made him the great man he had become…. Here is a 2 minute clip from the episode on YouTube for all you Trekkies out there…  Have a great Week 17 Everyone!!!!!! Really looking forward to the Sunday Webinar today!!!
