Thursday 13

Thirteen Things about this Picture

1. This is a picture of me getting sworn in to be an Oklahoma Attorney. Here, I am taking the Oath of Attorneys.

2. This picture signifies the love and support of my parents. From grade K through this day they have supported me emotionally and financially. Without them I doubt it would have been possible for me to accomplish this goal. And, if it was possible, it definitely would have been so much harder than it already was.

3. This picture represents hours upon hours upon hours of studying during law school.

4. This picture represents dozens of missed social engagements and time with my family so that I could study.

5. This picture represents discipline.

6. This picture represents the effect that one of our law school Deans had on my life. She encouraged me to break through the women's glass ceiling and reach for all of my dreams, notwithstanding the incredible male dominance of the legal world.

7. This picture represents passing the Oklahoma bar. Even before the holiday season of 2005 began I spent a minimum of 10 hours a day studying for this two day Febuary exam. I took classes that lasted until 10 o'clock at night and then came home and studied some more.

8. This picture represents the support of my husband while I was studying for the Oklahoma bar exam. He took care of every meal for me, made sure Little-Girl was as quiet as a mouse, did all the house work and if I got a chance to nap he made sure I was up as soon as the alarm went off to begin studying again. He was also an ever present "you'll pass for sure" when I was studying for the bar exam.

9. This picture represents my responsibility to uphold the United States and Oklahoma Constitutions.

10. This picture represents the new suit I am wearing.

11. This picture represents that I can do anything I want to do.

12. This picture represents the end of an era. I am through with school, studying and everything that goes with that.

13. This picture represents the beginning of an era. I love being able to say I'm an attorney after all of these years.

At 7:43 AM, Blogger Lisa said...

What a wonderful, WONDERFUL 13! So full of gratitude and acknowledgement of your achievements.

Each one built upon the other - just wow. Nicely done.

I cannot IMAGINE putting so much effort into something as focused as that. The only time I went really over and above was studying for a final that I had to get an A on to get a C for the course and not have to take it again (it was in my major and I had to get a C). It was hard as hell (Behavorial Pharmacology, as I recall). But I did it and I was proud of myself.

You? Multiply that by infinity - and be so proud of what you've set your mind to and accomplished!

happy thursday!

At 9:13 PM, Blogger EmilyRoseJewel said...

Wow, I am really late for replying to TT's, but better late than never. I had so much trouble commenting on Thursday. I learned so much about you today. First, didn't know you were an attorney. That is so impressive! You have worked very hard. Second, didn't know you were Vegan. A lot of self control there. This was a great TT, photos do say a thousand words. Have a great weekend!

At 7:08 AM, Blogger Norma said...

Your subconscious mind is a powerful force. It can be an un-defeatable ally or a dangerous foe! It is a powerful force of nature that can be harnessed and made to work for us or it can be a wild beast that runs riot with our lives.
How powerful is 'powerful'?

Take the first Atomic Bomb - it could lay waste to an entire city in seconds. Or the gravitational pull of the Sun which stops our tiny planet from hurtling into space. Imagine the power of a black hole - that region of spacetime from which nothing can escape not even light travelling at 186 thousand miles a second. The Universe is full of powerful forces. Yet, all these wondrous things pale into insignificance when compared to the power of the subconscious mind.

The subconscious part of your mind is that part which regulates your heartbeat, lungs, digestive system and everything else in your body. It directs the inner workings of your body and such things as (what biologists call) 'machines' - tiny living cells that are composed of motors, drive-shafts and propellers - seriously!!! There is mounting evidence that the cells in our bodies have memory and that our very DNA is coded with memories of our ancestors. As well as having full control of all these functions and more your subconscious also retains all the thoughts, experiences and emotions you have ever felt. It regulates the most complicated mechanism in the unknown Universe - your body - and it can calculate the trajectory of multiple moving objects while supplying you with the words necessary to debate an issue while controlling a complex task of activities such as driving a car!
These tasks alone show how powerful the subconscious mind is. But it is much more powerful than that!

The truth is: No-one knows the limits of the subconscious mind's power!

Tell yourself that you will wake up at 6 a.m. and chances are you will awake. Go to a crowed party and through a mass of voices you will hear someone at the other side of the room mention your name! Set a problem aside and miraculously, out of nowhere, the answer comes while you are involved in another task. It recreates situations in your life that correspond to your beliefs. Time and time again you find yourself in the same situations, with similar partners, in almost identical jobs. Like a wheel your subconscious mind creates situations that bring your life back to the same spot.
Likewise it can totally transform your life - even overnight! It can bring you new situations, life experiences, luxuries and even people.

However, it is like a na�ve child or a better analogy is that of a computer. It believes everything that you tell it. Your conscious mind is the gatekeeper. Anything you think with complete faith is immediately past to the subconscious mind - which it then takes as literal fact. There will be no arguments because it has no discriminating capabilities.
Although your subconscious mind is more powerful than you can possibly imagine it is a mere servant. It is at your disposal. YOU are in charge. It acts just like a computer and like every computer it needs software to run. So if you do not program it then someone else will! You are constantly being bombarded with software programs for the mind every minute of everyday. Buy this product and you will look slim, drive this car and you will seem sexy, drink this potion and you will feel more vibrant about life. You are told what to buy and when to buy it, when you are too young to do a thing and when you are too old. You are told what is possible and what is not. Snap out of it!
Take back your control over mind and body. You were born with the most powerful computer system known to man - a bio-computer that regulates a sophisticated, highly flexible, changeable, self repairing vehicle. You are amazing, a true miracle. If you bought a new top of the range diesel Mercedes would you let Joe or Sue down the road fill it up with petrol?
Begin to think for yourself. Who told you that you could not achieve your dreams? Do you believe it? Who told you that you were too fat, too skinny, too stupid, too smart, too young or too old?

Does it matter?

No! Because you are and always have been in total control. Change your thinking and you will change your subconscious beliefs. Change your subconscious beliefs and you will change your life. hypnosis
