Rainy days and Mondays

Kathy Krugercontentment, work-life balance29 Comments

I wear this pencil skirt I bought three years ago that was a bit too tight then, and now isn’t. I’m changed – not just by three years and less weight, but somehow essentially – not my core spirit, but that which flows from my essence (if that spiritual stuff makes sense)! I can only think I’ve come around to … 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.

Balance often feels elusive, yet there are so many ways we can find it, so many places it can be found if we are prepared to look. I’ve come up with this list – what would you add? Ahh…..Balance The balance between your expectations (of yourself) and the reality The balance between your expectations (of others) and the reality The … Read More

A balanced family

Kathy Krugerbalance, motherhood, mummytime, perspective, yinyang19 Comments

How do you strike a balance between what everyone wants and dreams of in your family? Do your dreams and hopes conflict with or complement each other? Are compromises made out of love, duty or pressure? Is there are formula for family balance? On the face of it, our family is very balanced. In yin yang terms, two of us … Read More

Bruised ego

Kathy Krugergratitude, IVF, perspective, work-life balance20 Comments

My ego is bruised, rather badly. But I’ll be OK because my soul is fine (apart from the scars it already has from our infertility journey, but they’ve just made me stronger – you know scar tissue can’t bleed anymore). When we always feed our ego, we starve our soul. And you wouldn’t want your soul to go hungry. I’m … Read More

Work life balance – tips for the time-poor

Kathy Krugerbalance, work-life balance15 Comments

Well duh! It follows that most of us are time-poor, which is why we seek work-life balance – the general premise being that we’d have more LIFE if we only spent less time working. I often talk of balance in more spiritual, philosophical terms, but how to translate that in practical terms? True work-life balance is less about how much time we … Read More

Are you juggling life rather than making time?

Clown juggling

Busy hey? So much for finding work-life balance or life-life balance. Too many balls up in the air – how many can you possibly catch? How many come falling down, bouncing around your feet, rolling away just out of your reach. You’ll retrieve that ball later, won’t you? If it’s really important. Time is a created thing. To say ‘I … Read More

The yin and yang of work

Kathy Krugerbalance, work-life balance, yinyang7 Comments

I’ve haven’t blogged about applying yin and yang energies to life lately, so I thought I’d turn my attention to work, especially since the holiday season is now a distant memory! I’ve been weighing up what to do for meaningful work for a very long time (well a lifetime really) and I’m not sure I’ve come up with the answer, … Read More

Peace – in the night garden

night trees

Having a two year old tends to change your television viewing habits. Now I know there are parents who insist (or say they do) that two years olds shouldn’t watch any TV. Really. I’m not that good. But there is an unexpected benefit to watching two year old TV – peace – and not just from the kids – but … Read More
