3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
On the back of success, I go into the weekend with very clear objectives - mindfulness to empty my mind of unhelpful thought and to practise my body-language skills -I will enjoy the challenge of relaxing people to the deepest level possible in many short encounters, without them knowing that's what I'm doing!
With focus on the moment, unthreatening circumstances and a single goal, life becomes simple and fulfilling! I will however go into the weekend with a healthy dose of humility, fully aware of this character's weaknesses and vulnerabilities and acknowledging the support I get from others to make my fulfilling life experience possible.

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
When a family cat died in ancient Egypt, family members would mourn by shaving off their eyebrows. They also held elaborate funerals during which they drank wine and beat their breasts. The cat was embalmed with a sculpted wooden mask and the tiny mummy was placed in the family tomb or in a pet cemetery with tiny mummies of mice.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Change begins from the moment you muster the courage to act. When you change, the environment will change. The power to change the world is found nowhere but within your own life.
