Of planets, moons and birthdays

Kathy Krugerbalance, harmony, perspective20 Comments

Have you looked up lately? Venus and Jupiter have been hanging out together, apparently closer than they’ve been since something like 2BC and you can spot them up there, just over the horizon, even though they are xxxxxxxxx miles away. (Venus and Jupiter are actually about 670,130,000km apart, even though they’ve been looking only half-a-moon diameter apart. Our closet planetary … Read More

Get a new perspective – fast!

Kathy Krugergratitude, perspective35 Comments

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

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

Be the ‘you’ in your photographs

Kathy Krugercontentment, perspective17 Comments

You know smiling, happy, presentable (well mostly). From posed portraits that portray you at your best (supposedly), to glamour photos that make you look even better (I’ve never actually had a true glam shot, but I hope I’d look better). Then there are family photos that freeze rich and rare memories for posterity, holiday images that transform you back in … Read More

Let’s talk about infertility and pregnancy loss

Kathy Krugeradoption, IVF, motherhood, perspective46 Comments

We’re talking about it, at least a lot more than we used to. When I was struggling with infertility (I’m still infertile, but it’s a moot point these days), I felt so isolated. I isolated myself. Of course I knew I wasn’t alone – I’d meet plenty of women at the fertility clinic, faces that I’d barely scan and could … Read More

Mood swings (and see-saws)

Kathy Krugergo with the flow, gratitude, perspective13 Comments

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.

Have you ever travelled somewhere, got there and realised you forgot something important? Have you then realised that the thing you thought was so important (excluding your passport) wasn’t that vital after all? Travel is great like that for putting things into perspective – for instance my life-saving hair straightener (which I couldn’t use because for some reason the power … Read More

The secret to a new perspective

Kathy Krugerperspective, work-life balance6 Comments

So it’s a New Year. Are you still living in the same house as last year? CHECK. Living with the same people? CHECK. Are you still in the same job or basically doing the same things, feeling the same (apart from all that holidaying at the beach which is over, DAMN)? CHECK. CHECK. CHECK. Do you feel the same, or … Read More

Popular – Things I almost forgot

Kathy Krugerfind your flow, gratitude, peace, perspective63 Comments

I tried so very hard to forget the above hairstyle! I almost forgot that I was someone before I was a Mum. I spent so long trying to be a Mum. When I was trying to be a Mum, I almost forgot that I was still someone. I made my identity out of being an infertile woman. That sucked! I … 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

Feeling defeated

Kathy Krugerbalance, perspective10 Comments

Often it’s not one thing, but a series of things that bring you to your knees. The cumulative effect. Sometimes it feels like the universe just wants to knock you while you’re down.  While you are weakened, life delivers a killer punch. The universe has been raining down blows on me for the last two weeks. There was the big … Read More

Reframe things

Kathy Krugerchange, gratitude, perspective5 Comments

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
