Cutting fear down to size

The dictionary may have a word for a lack of fear – unafraid – but I’m challenging the idea that you can be totally fearless without being reckless, or at least very naïve. A certain amount of fear is as necessary as it is unavoidable, so it’s best to think in terms of ‘working through fear’, ‘sitting with fear’ 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

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

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

Drumroll…well actually it’s not that dramatic. Transitions imply slow and steady, even if it tis the season for rather dramatic metamorphosis…the whole life, death, to new life again message of Easter has got to be the ultimate reminder that change is inevitable (and even when it is quick it is seldom painless). This rather slack blogger is going to be … 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

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

Reinvention, again and again and again

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

It’s been a year since I started teaching yoga. A year since I discovered what it is like to teach and started learning from my students. A year of discovering how much I still have to learn. It’s been one, two, three, four, five years since we adopted our Little Yang. Five years that have flown fast. Five years worth … Read More
