frozen-7

At the moment I’m being tortured (or is that too strong a word?) to the tune of ‘Let it go’ from Disney’s hit movie Frozen. (Ok – I know it’s a common complaint, but here I stand, well write anyway). My torturer is very cute though (as I’m sure yours is) – in my case our four-year-old son is rather … Read More

hair

I tried so very hard to forget the above hairstyle! I almost forgot that I was someone before I was a Mum. I spent so long trying to be a Mum. When I was trying to be a Mum, I almost forgot that I was still someone. I made my identity out of being an infertile woman. That sucked! I … Read More

The Aaaaaaaaahhh principle

You know that feeling – you’re lying back in a hammock, cool breeze caressing your face, great new book waiting to be read, the waves gently lapping the beautiful sandy beach – perhaps your even on some tropical isle and a waiter is about to bring you something to drink that’s cool and exotic and tastes oh so good. And … Read More

Blood tests and beating fear

Are you sitting down? Good. So maybe you hate getting blood tests. Maybe you’re getting all squeamish just thinking about it. Perhaps the thought of a needle makes you faint. Sorry for reminding you. Perhaps you’d better skip to the bottom of the post. A casual conversation reminded me about blood tests. In fact two separate conversations in the space … Read More

How yoga can support your detox

divinity mocktail

Right, the rubber kinda hits the road in February doesn’t it – if you have plans to get healthy this year, then it (probably) should start with some kind of detox right now. Whether you strongly believe in detoxing or question its benefits; whether you go hard-core on dietary cleansing with all the juices, shakes, herbs, and potions, or simply … Read More

Grief and sadness – how yoga can help

I’m sorry for your sadness, sorry for your loss. I offer a virtual shoulder, and yoga. Have you ever cried in a yoga class and felt that rush of relief? I bawled like a baby during Yin yoga training last year in a two and a half hour class that went deep — which it turns out was exactly where … Read More

How to do enthusiasm like a dog

IMG_6267 small

When you’re a puppy (well I’m guessing) the world is always exciting. There’s always something new to explore and definitely something new to chew. Preferably something expensive. There is always somewhere you haven’t left your mark on yet (favourite toileting spots are emerging that sadly aren’t always outside). But you get away with being a little bit naughty – because … Read More

If you aren’t friends with me on Facebook or following my Facebook page (which also posts to Twitter because I’m lazy) then you won’t have heard our news. And shame on you! (ha, ha). I even posted to Instagram, which is kinda rare for me – because slack photographer (me) and soooo cute (him)!! I should probably pin him too. … Read More

bloom again

This is not one of those New Year posts with all the tips for getting healthy in 2016 (drink water, eat less, meditate – all good, but kinda obvious). It is about leading a healthy life – which perhaps requires some re-definition, or make that re-invention, of what healthy really means. Or as I’m calling the changes I want to … Read More

Ho, Ho, Yin

a very balanced christmas_edited-1

Ho, Ho, Ho – the familiar Santa Clause catchphrase of good cheer as that jolly old fellow St Nick laughs and his little round belly shakes like a bowl full of jelly. It brings a smile and Christmas cheer, of course, but I’d like to propose a new refrain. Ho, Ho, Yin – a good natured laugh, a cheeky old … Read More

Maybe you’re in the midst of a mid-life crisis reinvention, maybe you’re too young for one, or perhaps you’ve come out the other side. Maybe you’re having an early existential crisis or perhaps (lucky/perfect you) you just don’t feel any need to reinvent. Who says you have to reinvent? Maybe you are just caught up in the Christmas car park … Read More

Endings and beginning again

And-they-lived-hanging

What is it about us humans that can make us so sad about endings and so fearful of beginnings? And why can’t we just be happy (or at least circumspect/hopeful) about both ending something old and starting something new? This week we celebrated (hint happiness – then why do I feel so sad?) our Miss Yin finishing primary school. There … Read More

Why it’s better to find meaning than to seek your purpose in life

Kathy Krugercontentment, find your flow24 Comments

puppy 1

*trigger warning – cuteness* Do you wish you had a dollar for every person who has agonized over finding their purpose in life? I’d put my multi-millions towards finding – no make that creating, – more meaning in life. And it would be wonderful. (of course money itself doesn’t create meaning, but we all know that story). While I believe … Read More

So it’s National Adoption Awareness Week and I’m proud to say I’m an Adoptive Mum. Although you can drop the adoptive and I’ll happily just be a proud mum. Our children came to us through adoption and we feel forever grateful that we get to parent them – always aware of the loss of their biological parents in not being … Read More
