Sometimes you smack hard up against what you’ve missed out on, and even though you thought you were ok with missing out, turns out you’re not really. I’m not talking about the childhood trauma of missing out on the netball team or not getting picked for the part of Dorothy and having to play the Wicked Witch of the East … Read More

To change or not to change?

Chance to change

It’s not the rhetorical question Shakespeare’s Hamlet posed but it comes pretty close as a ‘biggie’ we have to work out in life. I believe that change is a constant (and the universe concurs), yet I find myself drawn to calm contemplation lately. To stillness rather than going somewhere (anywhere?). I’m in ‘yin’ deep reflection mode right now, getting ready … Read More

Just cruising

Have you ever been on a cruise? I’ve just taken my very first cruise (a mini-one). It was almost over before it began, but not before I got to feel like life is all about cruising, not rushing – just being (not to mention laughing). Did I mention drinking (just a little bit of wine)? When you cruise you’re going … Read More

The slow fail (or twinkle little star)

Sometimes I feel I’m a slow failure….either that or I’m simply succeeding more slowly than I’m failing. It’s all in the degrees right (Charlie Brown, anyone)? We often associate failure with losing a race or a match, or missing out on a job – definitive occasions, sudden and dramatic moments where you feel like you suck, before hopefully picking yourself … Read More

The Easter hunt – are you looking in the right places?

So the cousins and the other cousins had a great Easter egg hunt. It was part of a simply great Easter. Let me tell you why it was so good, and why it wasn’t so much about what we hunted for but about what we found – simply by being in the right place. The cousins, our two (11 & … Read More

Living simply when you still love things

When you take the yoga path, it should be one of simplicity, spirituality, and humanity, right? Well, mostly right. I do favor serenity and nature over shiny things. I prefer to donate rather than spend lavishly. I seek to connect rather than compare, to experience rather than accumulate, to enjoy instead of consume, to love people not possessions. Spiritual trumps … Read More

Everything you need now is already inside you

Dashama-0160

I ran the words like a mantra in my mind, rolling like a yoga Vinyasa flow sequence – each word running effortlessly into the next, the sentiment slipstreaming and surging into a strong statement, building into a belief, a certain conviction – YES. It is. I can. And I will. And I could. And I did. Hold a strong, mighty … Read More

How to harness your superhero power

Kathy Krugercontentment, happiness, motherhood10 Comments

bam

Let’s just pretend for a moment that you’re a superhero (because you are) and play a game about what power you would most want to use for heroic good (and perhaps just a little razzle dazzle). Would you choose invisibility and so be able to spy and eavesdrop on friends, family and foe (and random hunky guys) – for good … Read More

I wear this pencil skirt I bought three years ago that was a bit too tight then, and now isn’t. I’m changed – not just by three years and less weight, but somehow essentially – not my core spirit, but that which flows from my essence (if that spiritual stuff makes sense)! I can only think I’ve come around to … Read More

The lazy guide to being enough in 2015

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

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

On being boring

boredom-buster

“I’m boring” is the repeated refrain from a four year old who hasn’t worked out yet that it’s actually bored!  It’s day one of the school holidays, he’s still at pre-school, and it’s already begun! While it might be kind of cute that Little Yang thinks he’s boring, it’s not so much when you’re trying to work from home and … Read More
