Why it is good to F*@# up

Kathy Krugerguilt, love29 Comments

Three letters can make a big difference – that’s why while it is human to f*** up, it is vital to fail up. I f##k up a little more often than I would like, but it is not really such a F@!k up unless I fail to learn my lesson. And I’m human so I do fail to learn my … Read More

A definition of success

Kathy Krugerfind your flow, happiness, love34 Comments

Success, like balance, means different things to different people. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t mean money and power, but society begs to differ. I’m pretty sure it has a whole lot to do with love and that it can be simple, humble – wouldn’t you agree? Success can be one glass of wine instead of three after a long day … Read More

Do you need a pep talk?

Kathy Krugerfind your flow, love, meditation16 Comments

We all need to talk ourselves up, since we often spend most of the time talking ourselves down. But we don’t do we? We allow ourselves a moment of satisfaction when something succeeds, we might give ourselves a sideways approving glance when we are dressed up to go somewhere special, or we might even give ourselves a secret high-five when … Read More

Namaste, Aloha, Shalom, Salaam

Kathy Krugerlove, peace, yoga7 Comments

This post is by way of saying ‘hello’ for a Friday (or whatever day you are reading this), but something more as well. It’s an offering of peace, an acknowledgement that we are all the same, that we are all one. Namaste. Our everyday hello’s and hi’s are often polite, passing greetings, flippant even, uttered with ‘how are you?’ questions, … Read More

Open your heart

Kathy Krugerlove, yoga10 Comments

What does it really mean to ‘open your heart’? It means being vulnerable. It means opening your heart to your own precious love so you might love others. It means not allowing fear, or guilt, or shame, or any kind of judgment to close your heart down in any way. Your rib cage protects your heart – and it can … Read More

Love, old and new again

Kathy Krugerhappiness, love4 Comments

Happy Valentine’s Day. I’m working today, my parents are staying over tonight and preparations are in full swing for Little Yang’s 4th birthday pirate and pool party tomorrow (although he hasn’t been feeling very well, poor mite) – can’t see any chance for romance and I doubt there will be sex. I’m tired. We’re tired. I’d go so far to … Read More

For the love of gratitude

Kathy Krugerbalance, contentment, gratitude, perspective16 Comments

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

Of creativity and patience

I used to mosaic – as in cut up tiny pieces of tiles and lay them at random and in patterns to create beautiful (if I do say so myself) ‘works of art’ – pots, mirrors, picture frames, table tops.

I love you (100th post)

Kathy Krugerbalance, contentment, gratitude, love, yinyang32 Comments

I love you for reading my 100th post and for joining me along this blogging journey for however long you’ve been here. I thank you. But the YOU I’m writing to in the title of this post, is in fact myself! Let me explain. I wondered what would be right to write for a 100th post, which is a milestone … Read More

18 years to life

Kathy Krugerbalance, happiness, harmony, love, yinyang13 Comments

I’ve come to the point in my life where the length of my marriage could be a prison term for murder. That makes me feel old, and our marriage feel somewhere between a life partnership and a life sentence. It’s all about balance right! One thing I know for sure, there has been a lot of yin and yang, waxing … Read More

Love the person, not the reflection

Kathy Krugeradoption, love, motherhood, yinyang2 Comments

As my children are adopted, they don’t look like me (and luckily for them haven’t inherited my funny feet). I look at them with love (of course) even though I can’t see my physical resemblance in them – or perhaps because I can’t. So I am free to pile on the praise about how beautiful my daughter is (skin deep) … Read More
