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

It’s what these last few days of the year hopefully are – slow and simple. Languorous, lazy, light. It’s Thursday as I write this but it could be a Wednesday or Friday or another day wedged between Christmas and New Year, when the ham is getting close to the bone but there is still enough for sandwiches (if you can … 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

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

Kathy Krugerchange, find your flow, perspective15 Comments

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

Dive into the deep end

Dive into life

Let’s play semantics (yeh, my favourite game) and so be clear that I don’t mean ‘go off the deep end’! That would be losing control of your emotions, getting angry and irrational – going crazy. I NEVER do that!! I don’t even mean ‘jump in at the deep end’ – because the act of jumping implies just that little bit … Read More

A recipe for balance

Is it just me or is cooking getting more complicated than ever these days? Is nutrition getting even more confusing? Ingredients more exotic? Techniques more bizarre? Healthy eating more nutty? You can now cook in a water bath (is there another kind of bath) which is simply? a method for baking custards, cheesecakes and the like in a pan of … Read More

Slow is not boring

If you’re savouring a return to school term, then chances are you’re enjoying your ears being spared that most moronic of holiday ear-worms: “I’m bored”! “Would you rather be back at school?” Scowl! Perhaps it’s you instead lamenting the end of that slower, sweeter school holiday pace, or rather lack of speed – actual time to get off the hamster … 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

Find your flow by letting go

Kathy Krugerfind your flow, yinyang7 Comments

In the flow

You might call me lazy, but I like to follow the wisdom of Chinese sage Lao Tsu when he says ‘By letting go, all things get done’. Sounds easy doesn’t it. Just relax. Chill out. Like you don’t actually have to DO anything – just go with the flow (I bet you’re picturing yourself floating on a lie-low down some … Read More

60 seconds with your inner critic

LoserSmiley

Seriously, after a minute with your inner critic you should have un-friended her. Instead she’s sitting at the top of your Facebook feed posting stuff like: “Your life is soooo boring, no-one has even liked let alone shared your latest post and probably hardly anyone has even seen it because while they haven’t un-friended you (out of politeness), you’re not … Read More

You know that feeling – you’re lying back in a hammock, cool breeze caressing your face, great new book waiting to be read, the waves gently lapping the beautiful sandy beach – perhaps your even on some tropical isle and a waiter is about to bring you something to drink that’s cool and exotic and tastes oh so good. And … Read More
