3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
My mind begins today where I want it to be - in a neutral calm place. However there may be an adrenalin rush when I do the family accounts - and not in a good way! I never do look forward to it, but it is different this time - I expect to be in the red for the first time since 2008. A string of unexpected and unavoidable expenses has arisen in December - February of which I could do nothing about.
When circumstances are benign for a long period, you can become dependent on them, and a downturn therefore upsets your equilibrium. Fear can take over at this point and threaten a downward spiral, where fear generates behaviour that generates more fear. I am learning to respond to adversity by letting go of that lost and trusting in my intuition for my next move.
It's also important to keep focus on gratitude, so I have various reminders around the house and on the laptop to prompt me into that frame of mind. At the same time I need to keep my attention on my intention - what I'm trying to achieve. It's surprisingly easy to lose sight of this. I use daily mantras to remind me. My principal one is: What is my purpose? My purpose is to wield abundance to make a difference through loving, performance, teaching and therapy.

Robby Slowik on smug cars, bullying and ugly people
In ancient Greece, a dinner host would take the first sip of wine to assure guests the wine was not poisoned, hence the phrase “drinking to one’s health.” “Toasting” started in ancient Rome when the Romans continued the Greek tradition but started dropping a piece of toasted bread into each wine glass to temper undesirable tastes or excessive acidity.
