Week 10 – The Diet
I haven’t posted much about the mental diet because, quite frankly, I was not able to go more than a few hours before I would have to restart.
I was doing really well this week, notwithstanding the fact that both my girls were sick this week. The stomach bug hit them pretty hard, and although I was no more compassionate than I usually am when they are sick, I was more at peace with them, and handled things better. So the mental diet went better. I still restarted a couple of times, but I had actually gone for a couple of days until this morning.
I’m not supposed to have an opinion, so suffice it to say that I was irritated after a phone call and I was unable to shake it in seven seconds. Then I was doubly irritated by the phone call AND having to restart the diet.
But I persevere. The DMP recording – in my own voice, and each statement repeated twice – has an effect on me that reading it aloud doesn’t quite have. The music, perhaps? The sound of Claire de Lune? The subby responds in a powerful way. Proof yet again that Mark, Davene and the MKMMA tribe leaders know what they are doing.
It’s coming. Slowly but surely.
