W1 A – Reblogging: Resistance

Hey, Master Key Experience friends! Check out this fantastic blog post by one of our new members. Stacy had some resistance before joining the course but asked herself, “If not, when?” – such a timely question!

She writes:

“This is the beginning of a journey. My journey. It started with a LOT of resistance.

A very good friend of mine took a class a year ago and had told me about it, but I had no interest in it for myself. She shared a few things about it over the course of the year, and she was extremely excited about it. I watched and enjoyed her excitement, but it still wasn’t for me. I also watched her transform and blossom. I still wasn’t convinced.

A new session of the class was about to begin, and my friend wanted me to consider signing up. My first reaction was still “Nah, it’s not for me”. I had no intention of taking the course. But, it was always in the back of my mind. “What if?” What if I could finally figure out what I wanted to do with my life? What if I finally find that thing I feel like I’m missing to finally figure out the meaning of life? What if my life could be better than it’s ever been?

After struggling with all those What If thoughts for a few weeks, I decided to go for it. I did the initial sign up, but had to fill out an application. There were all kinds of things in that application that caused me to hit the brakes hard. I was okay with most of it, but there were a couple things on that application that made me say “Oh, hell no!”. This blog was one of them. As you can see, I got over that hurdle also. It didn’t come easy or quickly. That question, “What If?” was still there, and it’s what pushed me forward. I had one more hurdle, another “hell no” from me, and after another struggle, it came down to this: If not now, when? I’m 55 years old. I have no idea what I want to do with my life. I work for an amazing company, but it doesn’t feel like the right fit. I feel like there is something else I was meant to do. I just don’t know what it is. How long am I going to wait to figure it out? I’m not getting any younger. Time’s running out. If not now, when? How much more time am I going to waste?

The first class of the Master Key Experience starts tomorrow. After about 10 days of putting in my application, there is no longer any resistance. I can’t expect things to change if I keep doing the same thing. I can’t move forward if I stay where I am. It’s time to take a chance and move forward. I’m excited about the possibilities. Maybe I will find my true purpose on this earth, maybe it will be associated with my hobby, maybe it will be working with teens, or maybe I will learn something that will show me I really do fit in the job I have now. Who knows, but I’m excited to find out.”
