3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
A return to normal patterns overnight! With the magic blue tablets having worn off, I was untroubled by overnight urges and paid off some sleep debt, going a full 7 hours (interrupted only by a wee at 3) and waking at 6am, the middle of the day by my standards. I also recall a dream, a sure sign that I slept well.
In fact I have woken with a wonderfully settled mind! If that continues, a good day beckons as I focus entirely on my actions and intentIons rather than circumstances.
