Missing out (and FOMO)

Kathy Krugeradoption, contentment, love, motherhood26 Comments

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

Everything you need now is already inside you

Kathy Krugercontentment, go with the flow, happiness, yoga21 Comments

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

The lazy guide to being enough in 2015

Kathy Krugerchange, contentment, find your flow, meditation9 Comments

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

On being boring

Kathy Krugercontentment, find your flow19 Comments

“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

When life gives you jellyfish

Kathy Krugerchange, contentment, find your flow, yoga26 Comments

I went whale watching yesterday, for work, as you do! We were filming a ‘Great Gold Coast job’ video profile on a whale researcher from Griffith University – maybe you’re thinking my job sounds pretty darn great too! And if you saw me getting up close and personal with amazing marine mammals you’d probably be jealous. Last year, filming another … Read More

The winter of our content – your choice

Kathy Krugercontentment, happiness, perspective25 Comments

Not to rub it in or anything, but it’s hard to believe it’s winter right now where I live on the Gold Coast. Sure there have been a few nights where the mercury has dipped and it feels pretty cold (Ok – just because I wrote this last night was bloody freezing, brrrr), but the warmth of sunny days surely … Read More

You don’t need to climb a mountain

Kathy Krugercontentment, go with the flow, perspective, yinyang4 Comments

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.

Not another baby shower

Kathy Krugeradoption, contentment, gratitude, guilt, IVF, motherhood, red thread2 Comments

I should start by saying it was beautiful, just as the baby who will be my great niece or nephew (OMG) will no doubt be beautiful.  It’s been a while between baby showers (if not drinks). And they get easier, they really do, but still…. Ok – first to address my faux horror at being a Great Aunt (by marriage I must … Read More

Feeling fine, whatever the weather

Kathy Krugerbalance, change, contentment, yinyang2 Comments

Where I live it feels like it’s been raining cats and dogs and circus animals for the last month! And we haven’t even copped the worst of it. For those of us in Queensland and New South Wales (Australia) it feels like we’ll never see fine weather again – so how can we feel fine? The grey makes you feel gloomy, the … Read More

Who are you, in private (and who am I)?

Kathy Krugerbalance, contentment, mummytime, yinyang4 Comments

So I’m reluctant to post this, since you might like to think of me as some kind of enlightened mother. Don’t you? (he, he!) But I will, because I’m increasingly sharing my life with you, peeling open the can of worms inside, exposing the gaping wounds of my imperfections. I don’t know whether you’ve recoiled yet. Anyway, what’s a little … Read More

Counting the days, measuring those moments

Kathy Krugerchange, contentment, gratitude, happiness, perspective3 Comments

This day last year was as close to perfect as a day can get. It was two days before we were flying home from Canada, at the end of our 12 month exchange. I skied for the first time with my good Canadian friend, and my last time in Canada. The day was happy, gorgeous, brilliant, wonderful, magical – a … Read More
