Health: Trust Your Gut!


Can you believe it is already the end of the January 2017? It feels like only yesterday that I came home from London in 2014. Of course a lot as happened since then as you can tell from my blog and various posts on Twitter and Facebook. However one thing that I have definitely learned set of coming home is that you must always trust and listen to your gut instinct. Especially when it comes to your health it is ever so critical to listen to that inner voice and not be deterred by what doctors, friends, and even sometimes logic will tell you.

Happy New Years!

Hi love!

I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday season and New Year's. Can you believe is already 9 January 2017? I for one do not know where the time has gone. Sometimes it feels like just yesterday I was in London enjoying life to the fullest studying for my postgraduate work in Museum studies and making lifelong friends. And yet amazingly it has already been two years and two months since I left London after getting horribly sick. And yet other times it feels like 20 years since I was in London living life to the fullest. Where does the time go?

I thought I would start the year off with a quick health update.
