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

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

Depression is a sign of weakness, selfishness, ungratefulness? YEP – pretty much how I thought. I’d been depressed before – but back then it was OK. Justified. Totally justified. Normal even. That was on our long infertility journey – in the midst of IVF failures – I mean who wouldn’t be depressed? Still it’s amazing how long it took me … Read More

How to feel better about the jobs you hate

Kathy Krugerbalance, contentment, perspective20 Comments

Washing. Ironing. Cleaning. Bill paying. Chauffeuring. Office admin. Picking the lint off your favourite jacket, because someone other than you did that load of washing (well actually I don’t mind that one, in an inane, turn-off-my-brain-while-I-watch-TV kinda way). Jobs you love to hate (there’s a hint right there). If you can’t get out of them, what can you do? Drumroll … Read More

Does a yogi bear sh#t in the woods?

yogi-bear-animated-3

Well NO, and here’s why. You might think it goes with the yoga territory to be all calm and content, patient and peaceful, enlightened even. Zen perhaps, although that’s the preserve of the lovely Lisa and her random acts (and cards) of karma and kindness. But as one of my teachers says, and I may have mentioned before, it’s yoga … Read More

Be the ‘you’ in your photographs

You know smiling, happy, presentable (well mostly). From posed portraits that portray you at your best (supposedly), to glamour photos that make you look even better (I’ve never actually had a true glam shot, but I hope I’d look better). Then there are family photos that freeze rich and rare memories for posterity, holiday images that transform you back in … Read More

It’s been over 2 weeks since #pbevent and I’ve been soooo busy with #yoga, #backtowork, #twofathersdaylunches, #alittlebitsick, #life, that I’m only getting around to sharing some thoughts. So I thought I’d put some of the best learnings from the great speakers into a 2 min video. To learn (Problogger style)  is to stretch ourselves, to balance thinking with drinking (opps, … Read More

Is blogging a treatment for depression?

One thing I know for sure – yoga is good for depression, and sad thoughts, and anxious thoughts, and just living life to the fullest (not to mention flexiest)! Blogging, maybe – but I’m not so sure. On RUOK day (World Suicide Prevention Day) I’m certainly not advocating blogging as any kind of cure-all for serious depression or mental illness. … Read More

Are you sitting pretty, or would you like some more comfort in your life? Would you like to change up the furniture? When we sit down we tend to relax into life, whether it be a comfy lounge to watch telly or a favourite chair to read a book. Or maybe we’re sitting at a computer desk and its work … Read More

Yogi to Yogini – recipes

I would like to report that I’m a new-look yogini, but that would be a stretch beyond the truth for even the most flexie yogi! Let’s just be up-front about it – I’ve lost 5.5 kg – I had lost a bit more but have put a bit back on. I also didn’t give up wine (or cheese) in my … Read More

Is there such a thing as too much gratitude?

Acceptance_edited-1

So unless you’ve been sleeping under a social media rock, gratitude is continuing its rage across the interwebs (or I should say it’s spread of the love). Busy is the new black, or perhaps it’s balance, which some say is a seemingly impossible ideal, just like being a Supermom has always been – ie we are far too busy to … Read More

So you want to get limber, calm and centred for a jam-packed conference? There’ll be lots of sitting around and craning your neck for a better view of the great speakers and craning to find that blogger you really want to meet amidst the crowds at morning tea. Then there’s standing up half the night in high heels (well probably … Read More

What adoption has taught me about love

It’s been 10 years tomorrow since we adopted our beautiful daughter, coming up to four years since we welcomed our precious son. Adoption has taught me exactly everything that becoming a mother has. When we become mothers we (are forced to) learn patience, although mine was sorely tested by years of infertility and the long adoption process, so I don’t … Read More
