What about all of you? What could you do first thing in the morning that would make the rest of the day feel like a win? Do you already do this? Is it feasible to create this time if you use some of the fencing or force fields we talked about last week?
I hope you all have a lot of "wins" this week and that you recover from the recent news cycles, regardless of what part of the world you're in.
