3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
For this reason, as a matter of priority, I need to establish my Practice to the level where it can financially support me before Missus no longer can. I have however long-since embraced risk, uncertainty and failures as the price for my life lived my way, and it's working for me so far! Living for today my way has resulted in the "Golden Age" I'm currently enjoying.
I have learned that whatever you do, there is no true security and there will always be disapproval. Therefore, if I could fail and I'm going to piss off people, it may as well be whilst doing something I actually love doing. That is my message - live your dream follow your passion, no matter how competitive or risky it is or how often you fail - pursue it to the end.
4. TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
Are you going to choose security or happiness?

9. ZEN WISDOM
It would be pointless for a plum blossom to try to remake itself as a cherry blossom, no matter how deeply the plum yearns to do so. The plum is happiest when it blooms as itself in full glory. How much of the color and wonder of life would be lost if it weren’t for our differences.
