3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
The day wasn't too bad yesterday in terms of how I feel but there was a synchronicity of disappointment in the nuclear family, as we all had one. Mine was a "failure to launch" in the bedroom, which has not happened for a while, since I discovered that peanuts contained the essential nutrient (L-argenine) I needed to "deliver". Missus was, bless her, far more concerned for me than herself, for she has powerful empathy.
The correct response to a disappointment, once you've recovered from the initial blow, is to initiate countermeasures. In my case, I have to accept that I can't just perform on demand in any circumstance. I need to be relaxed and prepared in advance, and peanuts have to be the basis of one daily mealtime. I will ensure that all the conditions are right next week!
