3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Given the opportunity to skip the last two hours off shift 1 of the Weekend Job, despite not being economically prudent, I grabbed it with both hands - that's an extra 2 hours of quality life! Missus was delighted, especially since, with Son off bowling for the evening, she could have me satisfy her libido.
The good hassle-free run at the Weekend Job continues, and with Son having some much-needed social time and patching things up with an old friend, it was a good Friday for the Blonder family! As is my custom I express profound thanks to the Universe.
With Saturdays being pre-set in terms of activity, and my mind in a good place, today I will be focused on raising my consciousness, submitting to my intuition, keeping grounded and enjoying internal silence.
