20,000 words and counting

It’s been a busy, but productive day. I’m reading Peter Jones’ book, HOW TO DO EVERYTHING AND BE HAPPY and finding it really inspirational. So much so, it’s hard to stop reading.
I worked on the book for a while, then needed a break so I called my new best friend, Rae. It was a bit daunting, I’m never very good at calling people for the first time. You’re never sure how you’ll get on, over the phone is different to face to face or on line, but it was great. I could have chatted to her all day. I’m so glad I went to Swanwick. I found my inner child there and I met Rae and so many other lovely people. It really CAN change your life.
After lunch, I made up some more capsules. I’ve decided to wean myself off the Prozac by gradually taking less and less every day so that my body doesn’t notice. DO NOT TRY THIS YOURSELF without speaking to your GP first.
What I’m doing might not work for you. All I know is that I wanted to get off the drugs and I didn’t want to suffer the side effects. Cutting down the dose was my way to solve that particular problem. I will be free of them before Christmas which is great. I have to go back and see the doctor in the New Year and will tell him what I have done then.
Feeling in need of some fresh air, I decided to pop out for a tour of the charity shops. I have six or more close by. I also wanted a brand new, special, notebook to put into practice some of the techniques listed in Peter’s book. By the time I came home, had tea and a cookie, almost two hours had gone by. I did some more work on the book, stopping when I went through the 20,000 word barrier.
I’ve been feeling tired lately, for various reasons, so it’s important to stay fresh and not to try to do too much.
I’m signing off now and will wind down by putting a few more pieces into the jigsaw.
