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

If you’ve lost touch with your sensuality, feel lacking in creativity or just feel like you can’t live out your passions, then it might be time to tickle the fancy of the second (also known as sacral or sexual) chakra. If you missed my pocket guide to our rainbow of seven chakras, you might like to start with the overview … Read More

Stepping up

Liam uniform

The first day of school is up there in the great milestones of life – and I’m talking for Mums (and Dads) too. Little Yang seems to be taking the whole thing in his funny large-looking stride, but the seemingly oversized schools shoes don’t look as big on him as the uniform. He’ll grow into it. We grow into things. … Read More

The hot and sweaty truth

So it’s been hot. Insert understatement. From Victorians with their hottest January night on record and South Australians with their bushfires (although both capitals have been un-seasonally cool and wet too), while people in Perth have scorched much of the month. Sydney has sweltered. Brisbane has melted in the mugginess. (And scientists have found 2014 was the hottest year in more … Read More

Apple and hamburger on scales conceptual

More or less everything comes down to less or more, or less is more don’t you reckon? More of the good stuff, less of the bad stuff – but of course balance doesn’t have to be equal. So when it comes to our good health, we can distil what most of us need to do into that simple (yin yang) … Read More

root-chakra1

No I’m not angry and I’m not even obsessing about a run of stop lights (don’t get me started). I’m talking about visualising the colour red and focusing on the first (or root) chakra, with its emphasis on grounding us in security and stability in our lives so that we might grow. Last year I had a lot of interest … Read More

When I was in Year 6 (it could have been Year 5 or 7) I wrote a poem that was published in the Australian Girl Guides magazine. It was my very first published piece. Woo Hoo! It was called FREEDOM and it was full of idealism for a better world that only 11 year-old-girls, flush with naïve enthusiasm and the … Read More

Breathe. In. And out. In. And out. So everybody is still alive after the holidays – that’s great. Last Friday I published the lazy guide to being enough in 2015 – most of you were too lazy to bother reading – perfectly understandable really as I haven’t torn myself too far away from the pool or the yoga mat over … Read More

I have a new favourite word –LOLL.  Thankfully it’s not my word of the year for 2015 (or I wouldn’t get much done), but it is my word of the moment. I lolled Christmas Day (our main celebration was Christmas Eve and while there wasn’t much lolling going on in preparation, it was all worth it). I could say I … Read More

Swinging_on_a_Star72tn

The breeze tickles my face and I have tickles in my stomach too. I’m rocking back and forth, seesawing on the kid’s swing, and then I let myself swing a little higher, as I watch stars sneak out from behind marshmallow puffs of clouds into inky black patches of sky. It feels like I’m swinging on a star. I’ve just … Read More

christmas_mandala_by_manndacity-d89mswb

There are some things I know for sure about balance. It isn’t easy, and yet it is our natural state. It doesn’t have to be equal, and yet it is about finding equilibrium. It isn’t black and white – it’s only in the richness of colour and contrast that we can perceive a beautiful pattern of balance. We can get … Read More
