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 20% theory to overcome stress

I have a new theory to overcoming stress. I say theory because I’m still trying to practise it, and I use ‘overcome’ when really I mean ‘cope with’ or ‘reduce’, because I don’t think we can ever get rid of stress completely. But hey its a theory so I’ve got to aim high right! Short and sweet – do 20% … Read More

The race that stops a nation didn’t stop me. Not in my tracks and not even long enough to watch it at work (actually there was no-one around as my boss was on leave and my other colleague out of the office). With a new moon rising, Halloween had passed in a shocking excess of cheap and nasty ghoul and … Read More

True colours and real scars

No matter that the yin yang symbol is black and white, life simply isn’t. We went for a shade of grey as we transformed our timber floors from old to not new, but much better. (note feature image is NOT our house, sigh) The original parquetry, circa early 1990’s, had aged to an awful orange sheen. Plus we’d had a … Read More

Gratuitous Fiji shot

If this sounds very inviting, then set aside the next seven minutes and just relax. If finally got around to editing some hammock swaying/waves lapping video from Fiji into the most relaxing meditation. Imagine you’re on a tropical island (Fiji will definitely do), with or without cocktail in hand (I’m going for the cocktail) and surrender to your senses. Getting … Read More

Freedom

freedom

I wrote a poem once entitled ‘Freedom’ that was my very first published piece of writing – I was 11-years-old and it went in the Australian Girl Guides magazine. Actually, I’ve ‘boasted’ about the poem before, in this post about freedom, democracy, the rights of children. Clearly it’s still a source of a little bit of pride, even if the … Read More

Putting an end to a Limbo Life

Stuck in the mud

How much of your life have you lived in Limbo? If you’re an average person you probably spend a total of 92 days in your life on the toilet! Apparently we also spend an average of 1.5 years doing housework (no judgment if you’re way off that mark, I reckon I am!). That’s time you’re never going to get back … Read More

That floating feeling

We live in a world of so much sensory stimulation, it’s no wonder we all feel agitated and often overwhelmed. Wouldn’t it be nice to float in silence, stillness and darkness for a while.  There’s a Minecraft video series my son is far too fond of and the man’s voice grates on me like nails scratching a chalkboard (for those … Read More

Yin-2BW

It’s hard to believe a year has passed since I taught my very first Yin yoga class, having just completed my yin training the month before – the experience took me to Cloud 10, which is floating as high as you ‘legally’ can. I’d like to say I haven’t come back down since, but hey, life! Still every time I … Read More

The 12 worst things you can say to yourself

Kathy Krugerchange, fear, guilt10 Comments

Fat-Shame-Yourself

So this is my list, but if I were a betting woman I’d guess yours wouldn’t look too different.  Maybe you’d change the order from bad to worst – depending on how frequently you find yourself saying (or rather spitting out) particular put-downs or wallowing in self-pitying refrains. Something is worse if you say it often (move it down your … Read More

Teenager in da house

We have a 13-year-old (eek). The birthday girl doesn’t look any different from the child she’s been, only now she’s a teenager stuck in that awkward adolescent stage that I’d like to think balances childlike innocence with adult maturity, but let’s face it, is a ‘no man’s land’. Or ‘no parent’s land’ at least. (And no-man’s land either until she’s … Read More

Warm, not cold

warm-hands

Sometimes (a lot of the time) in true yin-yang style, I try to understand something through understanding its ‘opposite’. I like to use simple analogies – we understand fast because we know what slow feels like, we know dark because we experience light. And we understand relativities – a racing car driver’s fast is going to be quite different to … Read More

Divided we fall

We arrive of Fiji’s Malalo Island and they serenade us with a welcome song as they greet us with a ‘Welcome Home.” The Home part is significant and heartfelt. It’s more than commercial schmaltz in a developing island nation that relies so heavily on tourism – it feels as genuine as the smiles and the hearty shouts of Bula, Bula … Read More
