Breaks the spell of Writers Block
Istiqlál (Independence), 8 ‘Aẓamat (Grandeur) 176 B.E. - Friday, May 24, 2019
Today, 8 ‘Aẓamat, is the day we are celebrating the Declaration of the Bab. It is a Holy Day, on which work should be suspended; therefore, I chose not to do any surveys today because--at this point in my life--those are work. Instead I listed to two podcast, did some reviews, and writing. I feel relaxed and unworried. I'll go back to doing surveys either after sunset today--that's when 8 ‘Aẓamat ends--or when I get back online on Saturday, May 25. I feel so refreshed that I plan to make a habit of taking one day a week of survey work off.
Next week I will take of May 29, 13 ‘Aẓamat, which is the Ascension of Baha'u'llah. After that, I plan to take Friday off survey work, unless there is a Holy Day during the week. If the week has a Holy Day in it, I will take the Holy Day off. I plan to begin this new schedule in June.
