How To Be Happy

“In the process of letting go you will lose many things from the past, but you will find yourself it will be a permanent Self, rooted in awareness and creativity.  Once you have captured this, you have captured the world.” Deepak Chopra

My family is rooted in aviation.  I loved it.  My Dad was a pilot and sold aircraft supplies for a living.  He traveled often when I was a child, we lived in Orland Park, Ill. then. When he would return from a trip I always wanted to know what that place was like to visit.  I remember him telling me Texas was like a big sandbox with a few twigs sticking in the ground.   Travel always excited me and I wanted to go and see for myself.  It seemed so natural for me to be in aviation.  I took flying lessons and enjoyed every exciting moment.

That very naturally lead me to become a flight attendant.   (Stewardess)  I was hired on with a major carrier in 1965 when the Stewardesses wore hats,  white gloves, and very high heels.  For me, this was the very best career a woman could have at that time in history.  I loved the flying, the people I met, the big fluffy clouds that would sail past the jet windows and the huge thunderclouds that looked threatening even at 30,000 feet.  I enjoyed exploring the different cities both domestic and international that we visited.

Five years ago I left the career that I loved.  Today September 11, 2001, will always be in my thoughts even in retirement.  Many of my friends are still flying and I see them on occasion.  I mention this as it marks for us the importance of finding our bliss and connecting with others.

Now I have moved on to another call.  For the past two years, I have been taking a course the Master Key Experience and have found the world within, the world of thought and feeling and power that Haanel describes in his writings.  I am truly happy and empowered. If you are seeking change and happiness the MKE will deliver all that it promises. 

We have a new class that starts on the 23rd of Sept.  Click on this link to learn more of what is offered.  Last year we provided a way for you to take this class on a scholarship.  It is the best thing I have done for myself.  This link will take you to the information you need to make an informed decision.

I am a compassionate helper, who is whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy.  Being rooted in awareness, I have captured the world.

Week 25 How I Became Skinny Grandma

How I went from Fluffy Grandma to Skinny Grandma.

First I decided I wanted to be healthy and make it a priority in my life. I have three Grandchildren and they want me around for a long time.

In the Master Key Class we talk about having a goal and a specific plan for getting to that goal. (dates and numbers included) So several months went by and my original goal
looked out of reach. (10 lbs by June 2018 it was now Dec 2017)

One day I just got mad, mad at myself unable to get that fat to go, that’s when the Mastermind concept of having others help me was put into action. It was time to draw on others
knowledge and experience in the field of weight management.

With my management team we worked out a plan of action and would meet once a week for 8 weeks. The plan did have 30 min a day of walking but no other exercise requirement. I was
to track everything that I ate and drank. Each meal had a specific time of the day and no in between eating. (a key element of the plan) The first week was the hardest, as the old
habits would creep up. The goal was 2 lbs a week for 8 weeks. I was skeptical because in the past 1 lb a week was a good week!

Once I was over that first week and had removed 4 lbs of fat, I was on my way. Each week we looked over the food log from the week before to see what may need to change. Changed up some times to eat and a few of the food choices and kept going. After the 8 weeks a total of 20 lbs was gone, I was feeling fantastic.

Bye Bye joint pain, I was sleeping well at night, no more acid reflux, and I had energy to spare.

Now you remember I said I was going for healthy, right?

So another 8 weeks was mapped out for me. A total of 40 lbs fat gone. WOW, look at me now.

I have a new lifestyle, with plenty of go and thrilled to be here. Thru this journey all the training from the Master Key class was put into practice.
Love, peace and joy

Week 24 Each Day We Begin A New Life

Today I begin a new life,

I greet each day with love in my heart,

I persist until I succeed,

I am natures greatest miracle,

My last must be my best,

I am master of my emotions,

I cultivate the habit of laughter.

The wisdom of Og Mandino, teaches how to change your life, applying the secrets revealed in the ancient scrolls. There are 10 scrolls, each containing principles that endure thru out life. Change how you think and how you perceive things, your actions change.

Having worked thru seven of the scrolls, living with each one for a month, my life has changed.

In just 17 weeks I have lost 35 lbs by persisting, by loving myself, by becoming master of my emotions. I have realized I am natures greatest miracle. During this 17 weeks, there were luncheons to attend, Christmas gatherings, family time and weekly dinner group. All were attended, most were challenging as I could not eat anything offered. I had set my intention and focused on the outcome. My friends and partner were very supportive.

All these changes have come thru being a part of a team of people working in harmony to bring about positive support and encouragement.


Learning to be Grateful for all things (3 new grateful a day)
Accomplish 2 random acts of kindness
Taking time each day to Meditate
Exercise each day
Keep a mini journal of positive experiences

Love to all

Week 23 Addicted to News Shows

Are you addicted to news shows? The latest and greatest news from across the globe? Or perhaps, like me, crave the newest crime true life story…you know the ones on Dateline?

I am admitting to you, I have had this addiction but after hearing from Dr. Campbell and learning what was said by a college professor, I am changing my news habits. The college professor was well educated on brain health. The statement that changed my thinking was, “these are stories in the past effecting the right side of our brain and thinking in this way shortens life”.

The Master Key teaches us that these images and words spoken effect our attitude in a negative way. I know it will take me days to rid myself of the images created by these stories. It takes a great deal of effort to stay positive in our negative world. And my goal in this MK class is to be a positive person, uplifting and encouraging and productive. It seems to me that the watching of news shows will destroy what I am trying to accomplish.

It may be the most difficult addiction to recover from, but I can see the value in what is ahead. The relationships to be formed and the peace from the constant nagging. The pure joy over the little things and the love for mankind. There are lots of promising events ahead.

Here are three of the seven laws of the mind. Whatever we think about grows. (the law of growth) We cannot think about 2 things at the same time. If a negative thought enters your mind, think about a fond memory or pleasant thought. (the law of Substitution) These two laws we have been practicing the last several months in our MK class. A third law is of practice, Perfect Practice Prevents Pour Performance. Applying all seven laws are tools, that I am using to overcome the addiction to the news. Hope these laws of the mind help you too.

Love, peace and harmony,
