3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
With essential housework out of the way and the house to myself, I have abundant time to devote to promoting my Practice. I intend to avoid what happened last week, where the day seemed to "run away from me" and I ended up achieving bugger all.
That said, spectacular business success is NOT my greatest priority, which is instead to enjoy life to the full while I am still healthy enough to do so. I have come to realize that this doesn't mean a life completely free of darkness, but rather one of making a difference my way.
Like most folks, I do have to venture out into the world where I am occasionally "shot at", but most of the time I live in a cosy bubble of joy, where the scars of the past do not trouble me. For this I am profoundly grateful.
