Gratuitous Fiji shot

If this sounds very inviting, then set aside the next seven minutes and just relax. If finally got around to editing some hammock swaying/waves lapping video from Fiji into the most relaxing meditation. Imagine you’re on a tropical island (Fiji will definitely do), with or without cocktail in hand (I’m going for the cocktail) and surrender to your senses. Getting … Read More

Things that make you smile

I dare you to smile right now – wherever you are. Smile at someone, smile wide, grin big until your face hurts. Doesn’t that feel better. See – I made you smile. So for no other reason than the fact I’ve been smiling a lot lately and since I’m even smiling at the fact that I can’t think of anything … Read More

Cloud Ten

The moon looks pretty small up there in a big blue sky

It’s a real place, I swear. Sitting a bit above Cloud Nine, which is pretty darn high up, but then you’ve always sought a perfect ten and aimed for the stars. You can see them all glistening from Cloud Ten– right there in front of you. Not perfect exactly, but so close – floating up here – fluffy, light, free. … Read More

Gratitude and Grace

The toilet roll needs changing, again. And again, and again, and again, and again, and again. Every. Single. Time.     The clothes are lying on the bathroom floor, again. And again, and again, and again, and again. Every. Single. Time.     The shoes are left where I’ll trip over them, again. And again, and again, and again, and … Read More

Get a new perspective – fast!

You may think you need the shock of bad (or very good) news to flick the switch on a new perspective. Like a reboot for your life. Obviously very good news is always welcome – and that flood of serotonin (the happy hormone) and possibly oxytocin (the natural love drug) in your system is enough to give you a whole … Read More

Just cruising

Have you ever been on a cruise? I’ve just taken my very first cruise (a mini-one). It was almost over before it began, but not before I got to feel like life is all about cruising, not rushing – just being (not to mention laughing). Did I mention drinking (just a little bit of wine)? When you cruise you’re going … Read More

Mood swings (and see-saws)

When we think of mood swings we usually imagine crazy hormonal women, oscillating between normal and nice, and raving mad (I just look in the mirror). But (within reason) mood swings are part of finding balance. NO REALLY.

Red faced

I'm still this red after having a shower

Have you ever felt so embarrassed you could die? I’m betting you have, in that pre-teen or teenage OMG melodramatic way, when the worst thing in the world that could possibly happen happened, and mortified, you thought you would die (only here you are, years later, alive and kicking). A ‘heavy period’ accident springs to my mind and I cringe … Read More

What’s the hardest thing you could be grateful for?

Kathy Krugergratitude, IVF, motherhood, perspective14 Comments

finding gratitude hard

What do a) spilt milk, b) a parking ticket, c) Brussel sprouts d) Nits have in common? Pretty hard to be grateful for! A little while ago I wrote a post about practising gratitude for ‘the love of it’  – not just because it’s something you feel you should do (like eating greens). I spoke of gratitude as being something … Read More

Thanks

Do you love gratitude for its own sake, or do you practice it like you might have practised piano to escape the wrath of a stern teacher with an evil eye when you were a kid? Do you ‘do’ gratitude, like it’s a duty, in the same way we sometimes forgive more out of self-righteousness than understanding? Do you fake … Read More

Cooking gratitude – what does it taste like to you?

dad's day breakfast

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

Reframe your life_edited-1

By Kathy Kruger Every minute of every day we take photos in our minds of how life ‘should be’ and compare them to the reality in front of us. My mind’s eye sees neatly folded clean clothes – the reality appears as a giant, unruly, bottomless pile of laundry waiting (endlessly) to be washed, hung out, taken off the line … Read More
