Week 1 – Ch-ch-change

“Changes”
I still don’t know what I was waiting for
And my time was running wild
A million dead-end streets
And every time I thought I’d got it made
It seemed the taste was not so sweet
So I turned myself to face me
But I’ve never caught a glimpse
Of how the others must see the faker
I’m much too fast to take that test

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-changes
Don’t want to be a richer man
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-changes
Just gonna have to be a different man
Time may change me
But I can’t trace time

I watch the ripples change their size
But never leave the stream
Of warm impermanence and
So the days float through my eyes
But still the days seem the same
And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They’re quite aware of what they’re going through

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-changes
Don’t tell them to grow up and out of it
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-changes
Where’s your shame
You’ve left us up to our necks in it
Time may change me
But you can’t trace time

Strange fascination, fascinating me
Changes are taking the pace
I’m going through

Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-changes
Oh, look out you rock ‘n rollers
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-changes
Pretty soon now you’re gonna get older
Time may change me
But I can’t trace time
I said that time may change me
But I can’t trace time

Yes, that’s right….it is time to start the change….AGAIN!  What a great week this has been.  There have been a number of changes that have happened, not only for myself but for all of the incredible changes that are just beginning for everyone that started the MKMMA Experience.

Personally, the first change that started with me was a lack of sleep.  BUT, for this time it was due to an influx of drive to help others.  Yes, helping others is what drives me everyday, but to have the honor and privilege to guide and hold high the dreams of others is, well, invigorating.   As Dan and I would go through each DMP, the energy that the words and detail that were thought out and carefully written down was amazing.  Also to know that each person was willing to send off those dreams to a complete stranger to read was inspiring.  That right there is change at it’s finest.  Trusting others to help transform their dreams into a reality.  BAM!!

The next change was to our daily habits, read, reflect, comment, sit, silence.  Wait, what kind of daily habits are those?????

every-morning-look-in-the-mirror-and-ask-yourself Habits that as my friend Og says “Become easy through contant repetition it becomes a pleasure to perform and if it is a pleasure to perform it is man’s nature to perform it often.”  These habits are meant to allow me to calm my mind and focus in on exactly what I AM to become….well, hello….what is it that you want to become Jeanna?  AHHHHH, a little teaser for the weeks to come.  As this unfolds for me, it will also unfold in my blog.

Last of the changes this week are the season around us…..yep folks, it s fall here in Wisconsin.  Now my Sparkle Princessa and I share a lot, but our LOVE of FALL is close to the top.  The air is crisper as my view of the future is.  The leaves are changing and falling as are my old thoughts and perceptions of my life as I know it.  The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer just as my life is getting ready for that ultimate metamorphosis to take hold and I break out as the beautiful butterfly I am!

Butterfly    This is just the beginning….the journey will be well worth it.  The ME that comes out on the other side will SHINE brilliant like the a million stars.  Keep watching and keep believing!!

Shine on my friends….SHINE ON!!

Jeanna
