On being trolled

I don’t know whether you call it trolling but the nasty vitriol sure feels like it. On Tuesday I sent in a piece to Mamamia (a big deal for me, as I’ve been a scared of putting myself out there). It’s coming up to the 10th anniversary of adopting Miss Yin and I shared the letter to a birthmother that … Read More

Play to your strengths

strong-vs-weak

In Chinese medicine practitioners address weak yang by first strengthening yin. It sounds counter-intuitive, but the reasoning is pretty simple – Focus on your strengths rather than your weaknesses and then work on your weaknesses from a place of strength. The other thing that sounds counter-intuitive but is actually very wise, is that a ‘weakness’ is often considered to be … Read More

We’re talking about it, at least a lot more than we used to. When I was struggling with infertility (I’m still infertile, but it’s a moot point these days), I felt so isolated. I isolated myself. Of course I knew I wasn’t alone – I’d meet plenty of women at the fertility clinic, faces that I’d barely scan and could … Read More

This is winter - 6 July, 2014

Not to rub it in or anything, but it’s hard to believe it’s winter right now where I live on the Gold Coast. Sure there have been a few nights where the mercury has dipped and it feels pretty cold (Ok – just because I wrote this last night was bloody freezing, brrrr), but the warmth of sunny days surely … Read More

Connection – why I write

A little blog hop has wound its way to me, so I can share with you why I write, in case it’s interesting, inspiring even! That’s connection. A blog-hop is a bit like an old-fashioned chain letter, but there’s no scam being spread, just a whole lotta love. In my case, specifically by the lovely Aroha at Colours of Sunset, … Read More

Namaste yinyang_edited-1

This post is by way of saying ‘hello’ for a Friday, but something more as well. It’s an offering of peace, an acknowledgement that we are all the same, that we are all one. Namaste. Our everyday hello’s and hi’s are often polite, passing greetings, flippant even, uttered with ‘how are you?’ questions, without any real concern for the answers. … Read More

Open your heart

Yoga-For-An-Open-Heart

What does it really mean to ‘open your heart’? It means being vulnerable. It means opening your heart to your own precious love so you might love others. It means not allowing fear, or guilt, or shame, or any kind of judgment to close your heart down in any way. Your rib cage protects your heart – and it can … Read More

What do you need to unlearn?

Miss Yin recently did Year 5 Naplan exams and I had to wonder how much of what she learned (for the purpose of being tested) is in fact worth knowing. There’s much criticism of these standardised tests and the effort that goes into learning to be tested rather than for the sheer love, and importance, of it. I think Naplan … Read More
