I am surrounded by people. So different than a regular day of my self-retreat. Just another environment to learn from, is all. Today we are going with a whole team to Indonesia to play a local team. We will beat them hard, mark my words.
Saturday game on the horizon helped me significantly to ease up on my happy diet. After the game and tomorrow I will surely indulge myself again, no doubt, but I am really looking forward to go back to my ascetic diet when I am alone again.
I observed a lot of thoughts with a desire to return to a betting career before the World Cup. In fact I placed two relatively mild bets on the CL semi-finals. It’s good to observe my own reactions, why I crave it and also how my acquaintances react to my behaviour. It helps to know who how well understands my long term values and who how much values the same ones. This makes it much easier to know who I want to surround myself with. Who I want to be a part of my environment.
It still very much aligns with my philosophy to focus less on what should be and more on why is what is. And to be constantly brutally honest with myself. Accept what is, whatever it is, rather than trying to see reality as what I would want it to be.
