When the student is ready…

September 30th, 2006 · 6 Comments

…the teacher will come.  I am feeling like a student, going back to basics and having all the learning messages come my way without really seeking them.  (I’m thinking this is synchronicity, or the Universe listening…).  Let me explain… It’s only when I take a step back and look at the broader picture that I [...]

Blogging from the heart

September 28th, 2006 · 1 Comment

After my enforced hiatus from almost everything last month, I have been strugging to find my ‘voice’ and my ‘mojo’ (for want of a better word) in my blogging, my writing. I reviewed some of the blogs I wrote months ago, and my belief level rose a little.  I could write then, surely I must [...]

Taking responsibility… no excuses

September 7th, 2006 · No Comments

G and I have both have had discussions with our two younger children about taking responsibility for their actions recently.  And today, my request to Gorgeous Girl not to do something was met with "I didn’t mean to" – exactly what we have had multiple discussions on previously (and like waving a red rag at [...]

Clearing out anything that does not make you proud – no excuses!

September 6th, 2006 · 1 Comment

Today I felt the great need to commence the clear out and clean up of my home office.  What a shambles it had become while I was ill!  Finding my laptop was an adventure in archaeology amoungst piles of paper, file folders, books, CD cases, assorted stationery items, etc etc…  So I armed myself with [...]
