Making time to clear space for living

April 21st, 2009 · 3 Comments

Yesterday morning, with a full to-do list and a busy, busy week, I discovered my laptop would not connect to the internet. The wireless is definitely acting up and I’ve tried everything I know short of throwing the thing out the window. For the sake of my own stress levels, I’ve shut it down and [...]

Clearing Space and Expectations

September 3rd, 2008 · 6 Comments

And in those enormous hours, you’d be justified in thinking [...]

Clearing a Space for Calm at Christmas

October 19th, 2007 · 2 Comments

The tinsel and wrapping paper have hit the shelves of our department stores! It’s mid-October, and that can only mean One Thing… (cue Beethoven’s fifth… da da da dum) Christmas is on it’s way once again! In fact, the little widget I have on my homepage tells me that Santa is due to visit in [...]

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 [...]

Are you seeking a Pause Button for your life?

October 7th, 2007 · 2 Comments

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?

A(nother) great reason to exercise – beat the blues!

July 31st, 2007 · 4 Comments

It isn’t just about getting fit or losing weight! When we exercise regularly, we know we feel better. That good feeling is not just because we’re feeling virtuous that we’ve actually got up off our behind… I know I feel better about myself, I feel more energetic (and I feel virtuous:-) when I take the [...]
