An Introduction to the Lightning Process by Phil Parker – I don’t want to give this book a rating
If you regularly follow my blog you know that last week wasn’t the best week for me. I don’t want to talk too much about it because I hate to be negative. Thankfully this week was better. I still feel anxiety from last week, but that is just how it is.
Last week I briefly mentioned that I was going to do something special this week. It is pretty special to say it mildly. Don’t think of me like a weirdo, but me and my mom choose to book a reading from a psychic. Someone we know recommended her to us, and we thought it would be fun to try it out. It was a new and very interesting experience for me. I was skeptical going in, but what she told me was good so I have to believe in it. She told me a lot of interesting things, a lot about my personality and what I can do to have a better life.
Other than the psychic lady and my weekly appointment I have spent my time at home. After last week, it is important that I take it easy.
The weather has been beautiful here in Norway, really warm and sunny. I have spent a lot of my time on the porch tanning. I probably scares away the neighbors with my fat white ass, haha. It has been so nice relaxing, reading a book and writing outside. I’m actually doing it right now while I write this post. To my surprise I’m starting to get a small tan. I burn easily and get sun allergies if I’m not careful with sunscreen.
On Friday it sadly was my assistants last day working for me. I have a personal assistant helping me with things that I’m not able to do myself because of my illness. She has been with me for 2 years. The time really went fast, but also slow. Weird how time can feel, like it happened yesterday, but also a lifetime ago at the same time.
This week has been much better than last week, and I hope next week will be even better. I have to fix a lot of things before my Croatia trip that’s only in a few weeks. I’m really nervous but determined to go. One thing I have to buy is a new bikini, and I don’t look forward to trying them on in the store. I hope I find a cute one that fits me well.
