Controlling the Matrix

I know it will only be going on 4 days of this goal revolution, but I already feel that I am gaining accelerated control of the Matrix.

Neo asks, “What is the Matrix?”


An illusory simulated reality construct of the world as it was in 1999 developed by the machines to keep the human population docile in their captivity

Conclusion :

Morpheus believes that Neo is “the One”, a man prophesied to end the war through his limitless control over the Matrix.

Each move within my day is sought out to solve it with creative flexibility. I feel within that I can accomplish this goal. I will accomplish this goal. My family will accomplish this goal.

The thing that evolved this strength from within? I told myself, “we need to make it happen”.

It’s not a ‘maybe’ or ‘I don’t feel like it’, but need  to make it happen.

Controlling the Matrix

I feel like I have this inert freedom to realize I can do anything (w/in legal limits) to make this work. I’ve come to realize that my stuff is just stuff, it’s what got me in debt and why I am still chained to debt. In order to release those bounds I need to let it go.

I have started:

  • selling my unused clutter
  • started an Etsy store, Emile Browne Designs (content coming soon) to generate extra income
  • I am very careful about each move I make – did I pack my lunch today? Questioning things – do we really need this? Looking at the potential outcome – Is there an item with the same similarity on sale?

My DH has even started going through some of his ‘clutter’.

Every move I’ve made within the last 4 days feels like it is in slow motion but with such clarity to make it work for me in my situation.

Have any of you ever felt this way or am I just going nuts? Its okay, you can tell me if you think it’s the latter.

Have any of you ever felt this clarity? Like, “I finally get it.”

It’s a wonderful feeling, I hope it’s real and it lasts.

    good for you!!!! this will definately help you out – especially if you haven’t used the ‘stuff’ in over a year, it is time to get rid of it & hopefully get $ out of it!!!

    Getting rid of clutter will probably give you some extra $$ but more importantly, it’s give you some breathing room and a more minimilistic appraoch 🙂

    Good luck!

      Hi Duddes02, Thanks for stopping by. You are right… more breathing room. I’ve always like the minimalistic approach, just never seem to be able to reach it. LOL.

      It’s funny… you know, you read advice and how tos. Like with managing money – spend less than what you make. But, until I start living it…well, it finally clicked. Now, I understand. Now, I see what I have to do.

      I feel like I am playing Chutes & Ladders…and I am sliding down the ladder chute. Yeah, me!

      I am hoping like a son of a gun that I can keep that feeling. Now, why we can’t feel clarity all the time? Hmm… Thanks for stopping by!

    Getting rid of our clutter was the best thing we ever did, and making money from it was even better!!

    You’ll get there Christine, it is all about baby steps 🙂

    we call chutes and ladders; snakes and

      And it will be less to clean up too. LOL. Maybe I will even consider clearing out the garage (big task). Hmm… What trash to treasures can I find in there?

      I think you are right… baby steps. If the steps are too big… I dump it because it feels unobtainable.

      Snakes & Ladders, huH? Oh, I guess I need to correct my comment up there… I can’t slide down a ladder. Duh, me. lol.

    oh gosh yes, and once you get that feeling, it’s so liberating. it’s like you finally get some traction towards your goals. it’s a great feeling. no longer going through the motions, but real steady progress. yep, love it.

      So, your saying it sticks around? And that I am finally going to pick up speed and gain some momentum? That I finally decided this is for real and I am tired of it? That I am going to do whatever it (legally) takes to get out of this very mess I stuck myself into?

      Very cool. I am really happy to hear this.
