My husband [oh no we’re not married, but it’s easier to call him that – boyfriend sounds hilarious! – for all intensive purposes, he IS my husband] and I have had a will for many years and have ensured it is general enough to stand the test of time and not require constant updating. I CANNOT believe how many people don’t have one and don’t want to talk about it. OMG people!
Life is fast and it’s hard to keep our homes, cars, offices and brains on track with clarity… I’ve found the best therapy is to chip away at finding some order in the chaos and you can even make a bit of extra $$!
I’m a thrower and I can’t really understand hoarders. The idea of hoarding makes me feel claustrophobic – that’s another story.
I recently did a yoga class by my guru yoga teacher and there was magic – there’s usually magic, but this day was different.
I’ve started to pay more attention to older people, they often go unnoticed. I want to make a difference in people's lives, be more aware and put my mobile away more often to be present to what’s happening around me.
I’m currently ‘in flow’.
I’m listening to my intuition and following all the signs that lead me around and things are smooth. It’s so much easier to be in flow than to fight against everything. I haven’t always been in flow.
I’ve been butting heads with my pre-teen lately. I’m trying to figure out why we keep clashing and if I’m really the horrible mean mother he keeps telling me I am.
I was given the most magical book, the Art of Wellbeing, Joyous Living Inspired by Nature. It’s beautiful in its content and gorgeous drawn images that show an author who has time.
I think we all dream of having more time.
Looking back on my life, it’s amazing to see that I’ve always been the same. I’ve grown and had different interests, but the person I am inside is the same.
The little girl in me is there. I’ve even named her Sally and she loves to do cartwheels (that is perhaps another story!).
I'm crap at relaxing. Really I am. Can you relate?
I tell myself I’ll schedule in a massage and sit down when I eat lunch instead of wolfing it down in the car on the way to my next stop! But I don’t usually. Sometimes I do so I tell myself ‘see you can relax.’ But I can’t.
‘What other people think about you has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them.’ I love this quote – I can’t remember who said but I try and live by it.
My son had a school disco in Year 1. He was excited about it because he loved to dance but also because he could hang with this friends after school. I said I was coming to help as a parent volunteer and I hoped he was ok with that. He said yes that was good and would I dance with him too? I said of course if he wanted me to dance with him, I would. (Although quietly I was hoping he would forget!)
My youngest son went to a yoga school holiday camp and I was keen to see what he thought. He actually thought it was a bit on the boring side, but he is a boisterous 8 year old boy – although he does love yoga. In his defense, they didn’t do any yoga animals – the camel, cat, dog – I’m not sure what kind of yoga this was as how can they not do any animals!! Anyhow, he was calm and chilled out – bonus and he was handed over a sheet of beautiful affirmations. Freaking AWESOME! I had to share!
Rob is my partner and we both talk about how life gets faster and we all get older. This is obvious and inevitable, but we CAN be in the driver’s seat and have some control over the quality of life we’re living.
