IsayNO1

Oh NO! It’s almost nine on a Monday night and I have nothing written for tomorrow, which is Tuesday and I blog on Tuesdays. But I do have some thoughts about that one little word, and how frequently that I (and I suspect many of you) use, overuse, misuse and abuse it. NO WAY you say (which is probably a lie, … Read More

Don’t you know, we’re talking ‘bout a revolution, sounds like a whisper. So sings Tracey Chapman in her 1988 classic even if she despairs of so much empty talk that isn’t heard and even though the poor people still don’t have their share. It’s an evolution. (unlike the new Abbott Cabinet here in Australia, which in terms of female representation, … Read More

A yen for yin

It’s funny how when the universe asks you to be one way, you yearn, or yen for the other way. Do we automatically crave what we can’t have? (mmm, note photo above). I mean just when I need yang energy to be confident, active, out-there, socialising, I feel like I have a yen for yin.

It’s OK to grow slow

Spring – the season for growth. Green shoots and blossoming flowers and fresh perfume in the air. It sort of smells like a positive affirmation (I imagine). In reality, a lot of sun (yang) and water (yin) are required along with a positive attitude in order to flourish. I start this, my first post of Spring, and the page is … Read More

Ten tips for taking a shower

Woman-in-shower

Do you ever (or always) stand in the shower and think less than flattering thoughts about your naked body? (well of course you do!) Do you let negative thoughts (about anything and bloody everything) wash over you with the steady stream from the shower rose? Is taking a shower a time for clarity or confusion? Are you in and out … Read More

The bright side of a ‘bad’ blog

yin yang holding hands

We’ve all known a Negative Nancy or in my case a pessimistic pain in the butt, a guy I used to work with who tried to make everyone’s life miserable, because he made a misery of his. You’d look up on a blue-sky day and this guy would find the showers forecast for next week and complain about them. There was never a brighter future, a … Read More

Failure is an option – 5 things to find through failure

Kathy Krugercontentment, perspective, yinyang7 Comments

successful-entrepreneurs-bounced-back-failure

Do we grow more through success or failure? I’d venture that it’s failure that not only teaches us more, but teaches us how to be successful. Of course in yinyang terms, ‘failure’ and ‘success’ are simply two sides of the same coin. And life is about flipping (hopefully success comes up more often). BUT. I could pepper this post with plenty of … Read More

Watch out world!  I’m suffering an attack of the ‘horrormones’ and I can’t be held responsible for who I attack as a result. Well that’s my excuse anyway. (Horrormones are hormones on steroids – I came across this non-medical but perfectly accurate term when we were doing IVF and I was partaking of lovely hormonal cocktail each cycle – well actually … Read More

I’m off on a yoga retreat (read treat) in just under two weeks and I’m just a teeny bit excited! So in anticipation or celebration I thought I’d share with you what I call the yin and yang of yoga (just my term, nothing technical). I hope I can inspire you to give yoga a go, if you haven’t already. … Read More

You don’t need to climb a mountain

Mountain - the view from the top is just different from the view from the bottom (1024x768) (2)

So much about how society views life is in the climb (read struggle) to some imagined top of a mountain. But what if the view from the top was just different, not better than the view from the bottom? You don’t need to climb a mountain to reach new heights.

Life is not one giant positive affirmation

Kathy Krugerbalance, contentment, perspective, yinyang5 Comments

I love a good positive affirmation – don’t get me wrong. I share quotes that inspire all the time, hey I even try to make up my own ‘quotable quotes’ like I’m some sort of philosopher or wise woman. I truly believe that we can manifest good things through our thoughts (or at least forget about the bad stuff for … Read More
