Are you a coulda, shoulda, woulda excuse maker or an ‘I want’, ‘I think I can’ or an ‘I just will’ kinda person. Or DO you just DO? When it comes to … Read More

Play to your strengths

Kathy Krugerbalance, China, yinyang29 Comments

In Chinese medicine practitioners address weak yang by first strengthening yin. It sounds counter-intuitive, but the reasoning is pretty simple – Focus on your strengths rather than your weaknesses and then work on your weaknesses from a place of strength. The other thing that sounds counter-intuitive but is actually very wise, is that a ‘weakness’ is often considered to be … Read More

Nothing is ever black and white

Kathy Krugerbalance, contentment, Uncategorized, yinyang4 Comments

Nothing (well very few things) are truly black and white. Even when really bad things happen to really good people, there may be some good to come out of the situation. If only HOPE. In looking at a ‘negative’ situation, you can try to see the small ray of light within – just as the yin-yang symbol contains a small … Read More

Help! Have I got your attention?

Kathy Krugerbalance, work-life balance, yinyang9 Comments

Sometimes we need to imagine hearing cries for help, or visualise stop signs or even train wrecks to realize just how busy and distracted we make our lives. What would make you stop, right NOW, and focus your complete, undivided attention? An accident, bad news, spontaneous laughter, your kid’s excited pronouncement that they made the team? (‘that’s great dear’ you … Read More

The chat and the whinge

Kathy Krugerbalance, motherhood, yinyang9 Comments

Butter wouldn’t melt right! That face – this adorable face – you’ve probably seen it many times but hey, it sucks you in doesn’t it? And lately the chats do too – little snatches on the way here and there, sometimes full-on conversations. They take me to places of sheer joy as I marvel at a four-year-old’s unique perspective on … Read More

Inspiration vs perspiration

Kathy Krugerfind your flow, perspective, yinyang12 Comments

I know what you’re thinking – it’s one of those yin-yang things – you can’t have inspiration without perspiration. You can have perspiration without inspiration, but only on a hot day (most days if you’re in Darwin) when you can’t be f….d bothered doing anything at all, and yet still you sit in a pool of sweat, or (as I … Read More

Anger – the eye of the storm

Kathy Krugerperspective, yinyang10 Comments

In the eye of the storm everything is calm, clear, silent, still – how do we get this peace, this clarity in our lives without the fury that surrounds it? We’ve been having some savage storms lately – what about that poor guy just standing on the beach beside his son when he was struck by lightning. Here one moment, … Read More

Unresolved – done with resolutions!

Kathy Krugerbalance, change, yinyang23 Comments

I am feeling unresolved this New Year. There are things that I should, could, will do (change) in 2014 yet I am not calling them resolutions. And I’m not planning on starting the New Year with a big bang that ends in a whimper. What about you? New Year feels like such an artificial time to change, to really change. … Read More

A balanced family

Kathy Krugerbalance, motherhood, mummytime, perspective, yinyang19 Comments

How do you strike a balance between what everyone wants and dreams of in your family? Do your dreams and hopes conflict with or complement each other? Are compromises made out of love, duty or pressure? Is there are formula for family balance? On the face of it, our family is very balanced. In yin yang terms, two of us … Read More

Cooking gratitude – what does it taste like to you?

Kathy Krugergratitude, perspective, yinyang11 Comments

I often think we cook with love and eat with gratitude. Or sometimes we just cook two minute noodles and throw some cheese on top (which may not be quite caring enough to qualify as love). It’s hard to be overly grateful for two minute noodles with cheese (although my kids actually love them). I eat with gratitude when someone … Read More
