3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
After a little too long being distracted, today's the first day for a while where I am really back on task, focused on domestic maintenance, self-development and promotion of my practice. Not that I'm feeling guilty - I've been living life and enjoying myself! The time comes however where you must restart consolidating and investing to continue enjoying what you have.
This character operates in a little world "below the radar" of popular attention in his own little blissful world where he has everything he wants - not free of challenges, but I have learned that happiness is NOT the absence of challenges, but rather living your life making a difference your way. I've learned to measure success by the amount of love, joy and wisdom I've accumulated.
