A simple cure for 'tomorrow-itis'

March 20th, 2008 · No Comments

  What are you waiting for? Today is the first day of the rest of your life. You will never be younger than you are today. Imagine – at the end of 2008 you’ll be a year older. In 2018 you’ll be ten years older than you are right now. There has never been a [...]

Why and What do you Celebrate?

December 22nd, 2007 · 5 Comments

Why do you celebrate Christmas? What do you celebrate at Christmas? With my life pared back to bare bones during our renovation and narry a bauble in sight, let alone a tree or piles of beautifully wrapped gifts, I find those two questions popping into my mind. When you take away the tree, when you [...]

A helping hand as chaos sets in… it's December!!!

December 14th, 2007 · 1 Comment

You know how it goes! It’s December, and we’re in full countdown to Christmas mode. It seems to me the whole world goes crazy at this time of year. Especially women. I’m not sure if it’s hormonal (we could always blame it on the moon’s alignment with Venus or some such, couldn’t we?), or whether [...]

What does a domestic goddess have to do with time management?

November 29th, 2007 · 5 Comments

I don’t believe in time “management”. Every single person on this planet has the same number of nanoseconds in their day as every single other human being on this planet. So how come some are always complaining about not having enough time, and others just get on with it? We cannot “manage” time – we [...]

Endings and beginnings, learning to let go

November 20th, 2007 · 8 Comments

The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it. ~ Marcus Aurelius Antoninus My eldest son, Captain Scarlett, graduated from school last week. It seems only yesterday I was leaving him for his first day at school. That morning where he said ‘bye Mum!’, and sat, entranced by his teacher and oblivious [...]

Do you feel like there is no 'you' any more?

November 13th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Are YOU getting lost in your roles and responsibilities? Do you have moments when you wonder what happened to that girl you were, back when… Do you hear someone telling you to Take Care of yourself, and you think ‘no time, no time’? Do you then wonder why you’re feeling like you don’t belong in [...]

Friends are…

November 4th, 2007 · No Comments

… the bacon bits in the salad of life. So I learned last week. Along with that very valuable lesson (hmmm), I also learned again what an exceptional team of contributors we have over at The Calm Space. For November, each contributor has written their thoughts, advice, book recommendations, tips or questions on the theme [...]

How to relax… lessons from a facial

October 18th, 2007 · No Comments

Last night I had a facial. I had booked it because my skin has been particularly sensitive lately – rather than for the relaxation factor. Got there. Lay down. Glad the beauty therapist doesn’t try to chat with you while she works. (It’s hard to talk with gook all over your face, anyway). Ahhh… now [...]

Are worries weighing you down?

October 17th, 2007 · 1 Comment

We’re told to think positive, to change our thoughts and change our life. And it sounds easy when we read it. Only, sometimes the reality isn’t that easy. When we wake in a sweat in the middle of the night; or when we have that awful feeling in the pit of our stomach; or when [...]

Seeking the lessons in stuckness

September 29th, 2007 · 8 Comments

We’re stuck. It seems that life is like one big clogged drain pipe at the moment. Only a trickle can get through. Have you ever had times like this? When, despite all your best efforts, everything takes an inordinate amount of effort to get happening? Everything that could go wrong, does. And delays abound. Each [...]
