Happy New Year everyone! In keeping with the theme, it’s in with the new and out with any stuff that doesn’t work.  Hopefully that means a refreshed blog that you enjoy reading (well hopefully you enjoy reading it already, but you know what I mean). I’d love to hear your ideas for how I can make my blog better so … Read More

Make up your mind to go with the flow

NB – This post was orginally published on Tiny Buddha.com on 9 October, 2012. If you correct your mind, the rest of your life will fall into place. Lao Tsu. Long before health experts were telling us ‘you are what you eat’, even before Buddha spoke his wisdom, ‘what we think we become’, ancient Chinese sage Lao Tsu mused that … Read More

A (Christmas) Tree – a meditation on life

Kathy Krugergo with the flow, harmony, perspective, yinyang3 Comments

I have a confession to make – I’m rather obsessed with trees! Not just Christmas trees, but all sorts of trees. And I think that considering how trees are rooted into the ground (yin) and reach for the sky (yang) they are a perfect symbol of balance, of embracing change, of bending into it, of letting go (of leaves, raindrops, … Read More

Worry is always wasted

Kathy Krugergo with the flow, gratitude, perspective5 Comments

It’s that dull silence on the end of the phone – not exactly dead but humming unnervingly with what must be the sound of worry, if it had a sound to go with the sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach that settles like a stone later. Still on-hold. Then the medical receptionist says she needs to run the … Read More

The good the bad (and the ugly) of being a mother

Kathy Krugercontentment, go with the flow, happiness, motherhood, perspective, yinyang1 Comment

I’ve been wondering about when people stumble upon this blog whether they presume it’s about the good days (hopefully lots) and the bad days (sometimes too many) of being a mother. They would be right. You take the yin with the yang. I suspect newcomers to this blog could imagine I write (in brief) about my own good points and … Read More

Hit the shuffle button on life!

Kathy Krugergo with the flow, happiness, harmony, motherhood4 Comments

Is your IPOD/Phone shuffle playlist trying to tell you something? I’ll start by admitting I’m a sop (regular readers might have guessed this already, duh!). Which means my IPhone playlist of favourite, easy-listening, inspirational tunes is a little, or a lot, embarrassing (and mellow and melancholy). And I really should update it with a few newer songs!  I do have a … Read More

Find your flow by letting go

Kathy Krugercontentment, go with the flow, harmony2 Comments

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

Balance requires wobbling

Kathy Krugerbalance, go with the flowLeave a Comment

I’m a firm believer that balance requires wobbling. If we are too rigid we won’t be able to move towards where we want to go, with balance. At least that’s my excuse for this embarassing video of yoga balance poses, plus the kids balancing (easily) in the pool. A one minute laugh!

New video – Yinyang clock – sunrises and sunsets

Kathy Krugerchange, go with the flow, gratitude, happiness, yinyangLeave a Comment

How often do you get up for a sunrise? How often do you stop to appreciate a sunset? I made this video to celebrate some of the beautiful sunrises and sunsets I’ve seen. From climbing Mt Warning to see the sunrise over Australia’s most easterly point – my husband and I did the 2.5 hour climb in the darkness, one … Read More

When waiting feels like forever

(Or I could write a thesis on impatience) Impatience is a topic I could have written a thesis about. If only I’d been patient enough to stick at it! In suffering infertility, I WAITED a very long time (or what felt like an ETERNITY) to fall pregnant. I WAITED in doctor’s surgeries, the scent of ‘horrormones’ hanging in the air, … Read More

Yinyang – the hot and cold of it (and the shades of grey)

Kathy Krugerbalance, go with the flow, motherhood, perspective, yinyang4 Comments

yin and yang the hot and cold of it

One of the first words Little Yang said (after Mum, but before Dad!) was HOT. This of course was because he was told repeatedly ‘don’t touch, HOT’ around cups of tea or coffee. And we would blow any food that was warmed a little too much with the warning ‘HOT, HOT’. To him HOT naturally came to mean ‘BAD’ – … Read More

Yin and yang – watch your speed!

Kathy Krugercontentment, go with the flow4 Comments

The brake, or the accelerator – which is best? Well both (or either actually) in the right situation! Do you ever feel like the world is passing you by? Are things moving way too fast? Are you stuck in the slow-lane? OR Is the fast-forward button permanently pressed down? Do you wonder where the days have gone? Do you worry … Read More
