It is always rewarding to see a SMART goal achieved. Last year in the Master Key Experience the construction of this house was expressed as a goal for 2018. The blueprint was drawn with a page for each system within the house. Front elevation and each remaining exterior elevation to show each side of the house was included. Plumbing has its own blueprint and also a separate electrical drawing. Each workgroup had their specific detailed instructions.
The framed drawing was of all interior space and roof elevation. All 2871 square feet of air-conditioned space, a big project as you can see. Included is a 3 car garage, front porch 140 sq ft, back patio 224 sq ft, and balcony 264 sq ft.
From the balcony, you can see downtown Fort Worth in the distance and remarkably the quiet pasture with grazing cattle behind the house.
The part I am most proud of is the interior space. It is constructed so that someone in a wheelchair can navigate the entire first-floor space. Entering from the front door, no step. All doorways three foot wide and bathroom facilities accessible. The upper floor is designed to be a flex room.
Over the 12 month project, there were challenges along the way, each one had a viable solution. The Plan is the most important component of the entire project. Peace Love Joy,

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.

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
