A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected without trials.

Status: fucking tired. Wide awake at 3:30am and couldn’t get back to sleep, so gave up trying around 4am and got up. Night terrors as usual, but these extended throughout the night which is unusual. Things peaking out from shadowy corners, movement across the room and from behind the drapes. My mind was obviously overactive last night seeing things which are not there.

Received odd feedback yesterday from an interview which I had two and half months ago. I’d long forgotten about it, rightly getting the impression during the interview that they weren’t really interested, which is fine. That said, the tardiness of the response and inelegant content of the message was a little off-putting and has left me wondering if I should seek clarification or leave it alone. Perhaps that’s all I need to know about the organisation, tactless correspondence as an indicator of the way they approach employee relations.

Still, is this an opportunity to make some changes?

Is Your House in Order?


Is your house in order?

Most definitely not.

I’ve gone through periods in my life where one side was doing well and the other side not so much. My business/career life was coming up all aces while my personal life was akin to stepping in dogshit, and vice versa. But this is the first time in my life that they’ve both been equally less than optimal. But hey, at least they’re in balance.

I’ve been busy cataloguing and listing everything for sale. I need to drop some of the excess baggage, dispose of the residual items which are no longer adding value and/or providing enjoyment. It’s been a slow process, but I’ve made good headway and the items are starting to move.

I need to get back to a minimalist lifestyle, something which is a bit more conducive to travel. Which means it’s time to move onto the next thing.

Destination unknown at this stage.

More to come……………..
