Hi everyone, I’ve decided that I’ll drop the day count as I think it might be a reminder that I’m taking too long to simplify my shit!  So far since starting this journey I feel I have done plenty of reading and self-reflection but I still feel like I’m not taking enough action.  I’ve de-cluttered a couple of drawers…not exactly the life changing progress I was hoping for…

The ah-ah Moment! It is the 17th May and I am sat at home.  I have been off work sick with the flu…the flu as in the real flu, not a bad cold – no sniffles or coughs here – just this constant headache, tiredness and aching feeling.  I honestly thought the diagnosis should be exhaustion or something even worse but let’s not go there, but I’m not…
