3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I was born to be a hypnotherapist - I love everything about it. I was 47 though before I actually became one. In the meantime I was acquiring the life experience necessary to become a good one. I have also learned to be grateful and thankful for good things that come my way. I have traded myths of certainty and security for happiness. I love my life right now.
However, I still have one fly in the ointment - the accursed Weekend Job. I have set myself the target of ditching it in 2014. It is now up to me to focus intently on this objective and make it a reality.
