For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough. And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself.  For the first time in my life I was able to rest without guilt and it was wonderful. I unplugged and reconnected with nature and it made me incredibly happy. This enabled me to see ME for the first time in what seemed like forever and I started to understand what was missing in my life, what I needed and what I no longer needed.  For a very long time I have equated

Living off the Grid in a small shed

I am so impressed with this little house that I want to run out and buy a piece of land and build one myself. I love the idea of a small place in the Country with only the bare necessities. I also really like the idea of living off the grid. I don't know if solar power is an option here as winter is long with very little sunlight (this house is located in Melbourne, Australia) but I'm going to find out. The original idea was to build a shed so that the owners could visit their horse George on the weekends and then it evolved into this beautiful, solar-powered house.

 With a wall of window's both in front and in back, George is easy to find.
 What a view!
