Yesterday I got to check another entry off on my bucket list. I was in St. Peter’s Square with my husband and about 70,000 other people to hear Pope Francis and to receive a papal blessing!
I had been to Rome twice before and never had seen any of the previous popes. Although seeing the pope had been on the list, I didn’t really focus on it happening. I didn’t really visualize it happening. That has all changed. I am experiencing the effect! All thoughts are crystallizing. I am realizing thoughts transforming into action more readily. It is absolutely amazing. In the last two weeks, I have seen two major accomplishments in my life! Not only did they occur, but they occurred pretty effortlessly once I decided they were to be.
It was pretty obvious that the other 70,000 people had determined earlier in their day that they would be in that square when the Pope gave his blessing. Their excitement was overwhelming and contagious! There certainly was magnetism in the square!
I can’t wait to see what is next on the list! I am so grateful that the company I am involved with provided this trip. Qivana paid for my trip. I am looking forward to the next one in 2014 and to the many other entries I will be checking off!
I went to Game 2 of the World Series !! Going to a World Series game that my favorite team, the Red Sox, played in had been on my bucket list for quite some time. In spite of previous World Series opportunities, I never took the initiative to actually buy the tickets. Although I can now check this off, I see I should have been clearer and stated that it would be a World Series game that they actually WON!
But I digress….
As I watched Game 1 on Wednesday evening, DO IT NOW resonated so strongly that I started to look for tickets online. Determined, I explored every possible option to acquire tickets without having to sell one of my grandkids to get them!!
Not only did I go to the game, I surprised my oldest grandson with a ticket – the absolute BEST gift I’ve given anyone in Week 4. The entire adventure was a last-minute escapade and a direct result of the work of Master Key and the emphasis of the DO IT NOW habit. Attending the game was an awesome experience, and sharing it with Zach was absolutely priceless. We left the game exhilarated in spite of the final score. We shopped for a souvenir shirt, and took two subway lines back to South Station to take the train.
And now for the rest of the story….
By the time we got to the train station, the last train had left! As a matter of fact, the entire station was about to close! In the excitement, I had written down the times that Zach and I had to take the train and the subways TO the game, not FROM the game – uh oh! I never confirmed that the trains ran later on game nights just like the subway. I am working on my new habit of better planning to prevent poor performance!
