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

Christmas pep talk

Have you got Christmas sorted? You know like all the socks matched. Are you on top of Christmas? You know like all the way through that mountain of washing. There have been plenty of times throughout the year when I haven’t felt enough, despite banging on about balance and realising that since we are all born enough, the only way … Read More

Nothing – it’s what you really need

I’m on holidays as I publish this (oh I’m sorry to make you jealous) – enjoying that sense of space we find so hard to find in our everyday lives. What do we look forward to when we go on holidays? Mostly doing NOTHING. I can’t get away from the theme right now that what we need most when it … Read More

A life of FIRSTs

There’s something special about experiencing something for the FIRST time (well not so much having a tooth filled, or a speeding fine or sitting an exam, but I digress). There’s something even more special about FIRST time achievements, especially when they represent an important goal. So this week I taught my FIRST yoga class (and I appreciate all your kind … Read More

Have your rainbow cake and chakras too

Rainbow layer cake

So who doesn’t love the look (and the taste) of Rainbow cake? Mmmm. And who doesn’t love the cooking (and the chaos) of baking it? Mmmm…me. I’m pretty sure I won’t be baking this particular cake any time soon, even though I do love rainbows, and finding the rainbow inside us too. And I like having my cake and eating … 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, perspective23 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

Life’s ups and downs

The Canadian mountains really are awesome

Call it the law of gravity. Up is pretty much the exact opposite of Down, can’t get more black and white or yin-yang than that – it’s a scientific fact, a universal principle of physics, or is it?

Yogi to Yogini – recipes

Chicken, beetroot, haloumi and quinoa salad

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?

Kathy Krugerbalance, change, contentment, yinyang8 Comments

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

Funny/Sad same, same

Kathy Krugerbalance, happiness, yinyang3 Comments

I don’t have a funny bone in my body, or if I do, it gets tickled, or knocked (and that bloody hurts) and then I completely forget the joke. But not the experience – laughter = joy. That joy settles in the soul! I can’t remember jokes to save my life, but saying that now seems so wrong. Can jokes … Read More
