DREAM IT. OWN IT. LIVE IT.

8 REASONS YOU DON'T ASK FOR HELP ... AND WHY YOU SHOULD

Let me know if you can relate: there's a time you're cruising along in life, feeling on top of food prep, children's needs, work commitments and home-life. Then seemingly insignificantly, you heavy sigh over something not done. Then roll your eyes unknowingly. Your movements become faster and more intense and before you know it, you've gone from...

3 REASONS YOU LOVE YOUR LIFE ... BUT AREN'T HAPPY

"I love my life, so why do I feel like this?"

 

This query is verbalised by a few, but is felt by thousands. I hear it in conversations and see it in the body language of women every day.

 

They're in good relationships, their children are healthy, they have a roof over their head and food on the table. Women list the 'reasons' they...

WHEN YOUR REALITY IS NOT WHAT YOU ASKED FOR

Some say there are dreamers and realists.

 

A dreamer is inspired by the big picture of life and finds ease in using this vision to propel them forward, inspired by a desired outcome. 

 

Then there are the realists. Those talented & productive souls who possess an intrinsic ability to see what's right in front...

MAKING AWFUL WHAT YOU NEED

"I'm done!!!"

 

How many times does this phrase - or your version of it - run through your mind, and maybe even out of your mouth for your children, colleagues, spouse or friends to hear?

 

With the rate of speed and expectation of life these days, it's no wonder.

 

When did you become the one responsible human on which the...

8 Reasons Date Night Benefits Your Children ... and 3 For You!

When I asked a first-time mum what the biggest change was after having her baby, she immediately stated her marriage. Add this to the MANY conversations had with mothers about the last time they had a date night and it's clear, having children can significantly reduce one on one time together. Time to connect physically and emotionally. And...

SALT WATER RISING

I live on the shores of Lake Macquarie, the largest coastal saltwater lake in the Southern Hemisphere. Sunsets offers glorious views of oranges, pinks and golds, and when the moon shines upon the water, it looks like a scene from a movie. Today the lake isn't framed in colour. Rather, it's shrouded in greys as wind & rain continue day after...

WHAT B-U-S-Y REALLY MEANS

Busy has become the new norm. Especially for mums. 

I appreciate our mothers were busy as were theirs before them. But don't you agree there's a heightened level of expectation placed on women in 2020? Regardless of work roles, family structure, pandemic or no pandemic, mothers are 'on' from sun up to sun down.

This culture of 'busy-ness'...

WHY NOW IS THE TIME TO FOCUS ON YOU

Time to focus on me? Impossible, you might say. Ask me again in 20 years.

I remember feeling this way. Being a mum, wife and working full-time, my mind was always 'on'. Either on with a million urgent tasks that needed my attention, such as school or emotional needs of my children, tasks around the home and being a leader in a work...

OVERWHELMED? ANSWER THIS ONE QUESTION

Do you feel you're juggling too many balls or you're being pulled in different directions? Perhaps your mind is going a million miles an hour and you can't switch off?

If you're a mum, your daily to-do list never seems to be clear.

If you're a teacher or leading a team, you're similiar. You're needed by children, colleagues and families and...

SEARCHING FOR A SILVER LINING

I was searching for an adapter but couldn't find it anywhere! It wasn't in the basket where it belonged, nor in other 'logical' places. Perhaps I was missing something, so I called on a colleague for assistance. As I stepped back from the cupboard to provide her space, I imediately saw the missing adapter. 'I just needed a different perspective'...
