Clearing Space and Expectations

September 3rd, 2008 · 6 Comments

Once again, I’m learning lessons about how my mind works. When you stop doing something you’ve been doing for as long as you can remember, (in my case, working as an employee), you fully expect to free up these huge gobs of time every week. And in those enormous hours, you’d be justified in thinking [...]

Spring, Reinvention and Calm…

September 2nd, 2008 · No Comments

Spring is really in the air here in Brisbane. It’s been the longest winter I can recall for many years and that is making the warm breeze all the sweeter. Spring is all about new growth, renewal, flinging off the layers and getting outside. Already I am feeling much more inclined to clear out cupboards [...]

Our duty to be happy

August 8th, 2008 · 12 Comments

There is no duty we so much underrate as the duty of being happy. By being happy we sow anonymous benefits upon the world. Robert Louis Stevenson I often think about being happy, what makes us happy and what stops us feeling content. (Drives my family crazy!) On one of those thinking expeditions a few [...]

Develop a strategic plan for happiness

April 13th, 2008 · 7 Comments

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be ~ Abraham Lincoln How happy are you? On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being absolutely darn miserable, and 10 being deliriously happy) where are you at, right now? Are you happy with that score? (pun intended: ) Yes? Terrific [...]

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.

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 [...]

Making a difference – noticing possibility!

September 22nd, 2007 · 7 Comments

Often times, it is easy to keep plodding along, doing our jobs, raising our kids and living our lives without the time or energy to think about whether we are doing – not enough – but the right things for us. Life is chock-full of possibility, but when we get really busy with living it, [...]

Joyful Jubilant Learning – fashionably late to the party…

September 17th, 2007 · No Comments

It seems I am perpetually late to parties. I am not late to meetings. I normally manage to meet all my deadlines. I arrive at the dentist on time (even early, as happened recently!) But parties? I don’t know what it is, but by the time I arrive, the party is in full swing, the [...]
