- The Fam
I’m still liking this resolution I have to finish something I started every week. I keep battling with myself because I want to start projects that I have been wanting to do for a long time (creating another project I probably won’t finish) vs. actually finishing something I have already started! Does anyone else have this problem?
This week I worked on finishing reading The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom by the Toltec Healer, Don Miguel Ruiz. Don Miguel Ruiz is a physician who had near-death experience and decided to leave the medical field for his family tradition to pass on ancient teachings for one generation to the next and become Toltec Healers.
As far as a book review, this is a very cooky but awesome book. It feels archetypal and pokes my primitive unconscious. In summary, he talks about how we are all dreaming the worlds dream and as we get older, we build agreements with ourselves that are based on this dream. In order to escape a dream of hell we need to create new agreements based on our own dream. Living in our own personal heaven is freedom. The language may be dreamy, but the principles you can apply to your life are spot on. They are principlies that I would like to work on and plan to use as a psychoeductional tool during therapy sessions.
I do have to note that there are a few points made that I do not agree with from a therapeutic point of view, but for the most part this is a great book for personal reflection. I’ve been wanting to finish it forever…and I did. Hooray, Hooray!
This coming week I’m hoping to finish a couple sewing projects and maybe a tutorial!
Husband also finished something he started this week! He has been telling the girls he would build them a stage in their room forever, and even bought some legs at IKEA….but never got around to it. So this week he borrowed a saw, pulled out a big slab of butcher block we had hanging around and attached the feet. Super easy, and they love it!!
