I’m behind, the 7-day mental diet been tough-altho good to show how I’ve been deceiving myself…exposing I’ve previously operated more from ‘without’ that from ‘within’. Wow, surprised to learn I’ve NOT been the positive, loving person I thought I was — but AM BECOMING, thanks to MasterKEYS!!
The learning curve for figuring out this whole ‘digital connections’ thing has been HUGE, a BIG need in my life…the words, ‘digital CONNECTIONS’ – I long for more masterminding ‘connections’, enjoying starting to read fellow heroes blogs, their insights & journey!! But at same time, hesitating. This is exposing a deep, inner conflict of my life: being/having friends. Haanel says, picture talking with my friend (I have none…lots of acquaintances, but hard to do sit this week!). Could this be my hesitation with alliances? I’ve been over the categories several times, but hesitate to join in on any. I was raised to be ‘independent’, not trusting others. Yet, I AM an overcomer, I CHOOSE to believe the BEST in others!! I BELIEVE in others, & I BELIEVE in myself!! I LOVE being a ‘chronic GOOD-FINDER’ in others!! I LOVE all humanity (altho struggle with evil in the world …and on the news tonight). This month’s GS, “I wake up with love in my heart” is at SUCH a right time!! It’s been good to walk into workplace saying, “I love you!” in heart to improve the atmosphere, the world ‘without’ more positively!! My progression, like my knee injury process, has felt slow, but IS progressing. I am needing to ‘Giddy-up’ MORE! Gain more control of ‘within’, more reflective ‘sits’, more purposeful with my time. Finish my assignments, make the CONNECTIONS, invigorating those peptides! Expand my horizons!! My future DEPENDS on these CONNECTIONS. My DESIRE is to CONNECT with the GREATNESS I have inside!! DO IT NOW!! I LOVE what we are doing & making those commitments & CHOOSING to be a PROMISE KEEPER to myself!! I’m CHOOSING to CONNECT with fellow sojourners!! I’m exchanging bad habits for GOOD HABITS/THOUGHTS!
BLESS YOU, MARK J, DAVENE, WALTER, & ALL THE MKMMA HEROES!!! THANK YOU FOR CARING ENOUGH TO GUIDE US ON THE WAY TO GREATNESS!! I am SOOO GRATEFUL!!

I start this day with love in my heart. One fun part of being a school bus driver is taking field trips – taking teams or school groups to their “extra-curricular” activities. And after awhile, as you get to know & cheer on the side, you get familiar with certain kids, certain coaches, or a particular school. My ‘connection’ with a certain group of boys & their coaching staff began almost 9 years ago. A high school football program, the MountainView Lions, I have come to appreciate that is as concerned in the character development of the young man as they are with putting together plays & schemes to overcome their opponent for a win! They call it, “A Double-Win” Approach.
Their last game of the season was tonight. Due to lots of injuries this year, they missed earning a spot in the playoffs 2 games ago, so now they were playing for pride: their own, their school, their family & friends. They finished well – won their last 2 games in style.,, set & achieved some personal goals, treasuring the bond of brotherhood & team trust together!! We have a tradition of singing a few celebratory songs on the bus ride home…a special bond between bus driver & team! And even with my double knee injury (and subsequent surgery to reattach the ligaments to the knee cap so I can walk, run, play again in the future) at one of their games 5 weeks ago, we still got to cheer on the side & sing on the bus afterwards!! I still got to BE that encourager, that speaking positives into their lives in a small way:-) THEY are part of my LEGACY!! THEY have brought me such love, respect, & enthusiasm as each week they strive hard hard & play with such HEART!! Even when I was overwhelmed with so many other responsibilities, I had Friday nite to be encouraged by this football program…it IS the high-light of my week!!
I’m learning thru this course, that I’m part of that dynamic flow of giving & receiving. Of having a genuine LOVE in my heart for others. This is my connection. This is my LEGACY!! In my little way of encouraging this team, these guys have WAY ABOVE given back love & respect to me!! I am truly humbled & grateful for this association. And sadly, it’s over ’til another fall season. I feel satisfied & happy, for now. I have love in my heart…I LOVE being in that flow!!
just call me, “Mrs. B”

3rd week with these double leg braces being on 0 degree flexion while walking, 4th week in this process of changing perceptions – both sometimes exhausting, sometimes glimpses of progression. The knowledge that my “View from my Rear View Mirror” will someday make me smile as I see the whole picture & laugh at how flabbergasted my thoughts were! ‘Braces’, by definition: invigorate, stimulate, support, strengthen! Hindrance: obstruction, restraint, “cramping one’s style”; Benefit: freedom, teaching, determination, more resolution, new connections in ‘subby’. Before all this, just surviving, trying to keeping our heads above water, too busy – no time to sit & reflect or ponder or create. NOW, this ‘God Speed Bump” (as I’m calling it) is allowing time to SIT, think clearer, create dreams, connections in brain synapses, accepting nothing less than victory, make good habits!!
These braces could actually be a BLESSING in disguise: they’re strengthening my CHOICE of will, the DIRECTION of purposeful thought, & of TRUSTING the process of evolution into becoming the BEST Me! These braces are supporting my legs as my knee ligaments need time to heal & strengthen!! So it’s ALL GOOD!! I CHOOSE to accept & make the BEST of the “down” time afforded in this process of CHANGE!! I choose to be INVIGORATED, STRENGTHENED, & SUPPORTED in this healing process!!
Braces, I em-brace you! What ‘BUMP (s)’ are YOU needing to embrace?
In awe ! Bridget Marie

“One flew over the cuckoo’s nest”?? I’ve gone totally nuts, I’ve lost something in the process. Must be the drugs, the injury…”God’s Speed bump”….but I’m missing some pieces to get my work done properly…computer issues, email issues, using different computers in the different facilities I’ve been in?? BUT AT THE SAME TIME…
I’m feeling the START to opening up & ability to start DREAMING again, start CONCEPTUALIZING again, giving myself PERMISSION to work toward BEING happy, actually allowing FEELINGS to matter (SOO totally opposite my upbringing). I’ve spent HOURS trying to narrow down, S.M.A.R.T, Movie Trailer, getting CLARITY of my DMP (Dharma). Yet, I AM moving forward. Wow, allowing the GREATNESS to have freedom. I’m peeping around the corner, but having a hard time engaging yet. Appreciate all the encouragement & support to create the safety net to “Giddy-up”, make the JUMP & start experiencing a freedom to BE (part of ‘human BE-ing’) my DESTINY!
