I slept in this morning. Not intentionally, mind you, it just happened. I didn’t get up until almost 7 a.m. I feel so “behind” and yet strangely at peace. It’s one of those gray, drizzly days that reminds me of when I lived in Seattle. I loved Seattle. At one point, I always imagined moving back there to retire. I certainly never imagined myself living in rural Arkansas.

This morning’s selection from Audible was “Mala” a play written and performed by Melinda Lopez. Certainly not something that I would ever go out of my way to purchase, but I’ve been trying to broaden my horizons with my two bonus selections from Audible Originals that come free with my membership each month. I’ve certainly enjoyed them thus far, and this morning was no exception.

I’m still “retired.” Yes, I realize that I own my own business, I have clients, I work daily. But I am still retired from the rat race. I can stop “doing” all of those things any time that I wish. I no longer own the stress.

Michael, Mags and I did a Google Hangout last night. We just socialized this week, no game, which is fine. The socialization aspect was the primary intent of game night in the first place.

I’m going to start my day by polishing off the last bit of client work that I have in my inbox before turning my attention to the adventure map for my eCourse. I want to get at least as far as prepping all of the images (I have some editing to do), if not the entire thing. My buddy call with Trish is at 7 p.m., and it would be nice to have it completed to show her.

My course structure has been loaded into Thrive Apprentice on my site, but I have some questions about it. I think Trish uses Thrive Apprentice, so I’ll see if she knows, and if not, I’ll ask on the Mastermind call tomorrow, or open up a ticket with Thrive support.

I’m oddly pensive this morning, not sure why. Perhaps it was the subject matter of today’s listening. At any rate, it’s time to wrap this up and start on the day’s tasks. May you love the life you create for yourself. Namaste & ciao for now.
