lets talk about life baby workkidssleep

We all know life is precious, we’re reminded of it frequently when we hear sad news.  A child has left their parents, a young wife her husband and family, a sudden tragic accident, world event or god forbid terrorist attack has left hundreds without.   Life’s length isn’t guaranteed, tomorrow’s not promised, it can easily be […]

Uncomfort Zone

Argh, it’s so hard!  Life is good, it’s great actually out here in Australia, but it’s so, so hard at the same time – how is that even possible?

What’s your story?

Storytelling has been around for century’s, since cave men drew on the walls before the English language was a thing.  We all love a good story and no matter what our life’s tale, we can all relate to a story, we all have emotions in common and can all remember once upon a time.

The Great Wide Somewhere

When we hear the words ‘The Great Wide Somewhere’, we all think travel right? Exploring, discovering new things, figuring out the world and I too am doing that, but I’m starting on the inside.

Why wait?

Ok, so we’re alive.  I’m writing this, you’re reading it, we’re thinking, breathing, drinking hot chocolate, we’re very much alive, so what are we waiting for?

Aussie life is totally awesome, but…

There’s always a ‘but’ right.  When life is good and great things are happening, when luck is on your side and things are working out, there’s always a ‘but’, and mine has arrived.

Own your story

There are two ways you can choose to live your life. You can sail along letting things play out without your control, reacting to whatever life throws at you, adapting to your surroundings and letting fate play its part, or you can choose to own it.

Forever young

Funny how your life choices alter with age. When you’re young you want to be older, and when you’re older you want to be young. But age is the one thing we cannot stop happening, although where growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional.

Tick tock

When we were young time didn’t really go fast.  Maybe because we didn’t have anywhere to be, no one was waiting on us and we didn’t clock watch and wonder how long we had left.  Nowadays, I think of it often.

Be your own Architect

There are so many life clichés – Life is short | Live for today, not for tomorrow | Live every day like it’s your last | Dream like you’ll live forever, live like you’ll die today… But they are cliché for a reason, because they are true.

Lesson’s learned, outside the classroom

So last week social media was a flood with images of children’s school reports, news on how well kids had done in their exams, what level they finished the year at, which is all lovely to see, but I’ll be honest, for my two, I mostly skipped all that.

My life’s ambition

So being an ambitious person, I’ve always been one for pushing harder, for wanting to achieve more, for wanting the bigger and brighter things in life, and going above and beyond, certainly in my working life to get what I know I’m capable of.  How age changes things.

Remember, remember

Memories.  One of my favourite pastimes.  Making them, remembering them, laughing and smiling about them.  It brings me so much joy to take my mind back to the places I hold close to my heart, to be there again, to remember how I felt at that exact moment in time, to relive it in my […]

Then versus now

For those of us too close to 40yrs than we’d like to admit, we all remember growing up in the 80’s, something I for one am kinda proud of.  Perms, stonewashed jeans, Grotbags, BROS and Walkman’s are all things I’m sure we all remember vividly from that time in our lives, but sitting in my […]

Changing lanes, changing lives

Not having enough time is something I’ve always blamed on having children, between playing housemaid, taxi driver and referee, they tend to suck up every last minute of any potential downtime in the day, whilst I’m trying to make it go slower.  We’re all busy in our lives, juggling our commitments and chores, but is […]

Be wealthy, or be rich?

We all had that dream growing up right?  You know the one, having loads of money, the big house, nice cars in the driveway, multiple holidays across the globe, designer clothes.  The one when you had made it, you were finally on the map, you were rich!  So how’d that one turn out for you?

Outside of the bubble

So Hans Christian Andersen once said, “To travel is to live”, a quote which still rings true today, and one I take my mind to often.
