Do You Struggle to Stay on Track?

  Do you need a little girl power?  A little inspiration to get you moving?  Keep you moving?  Or, do you need someone who is cooking a deliciously nutritious meal to post a picture so at that very moment, you decide that you might hit the kitchen and reach for the fresh ingredients instead of ordering pizza? I realised that I was relying on myself to get me going!  Promising myself things that I was not delivering on… Starting the week brilliantly and then failing miserably – with NO accountability.  Sure I get disappointed in myself, but then I might pat myself on the back, say “It’s ok, there’s always next week” [as I eat my second mint slice and a cup of coffee before bed]… coffee before bed… #notsmart What if instead of hitting the choccy biscuits, I reach out and chat to my ‘Accountability Club’ so that I can find some inspiration and strength to have another go instead of wallowing in self defeat.  You never know, there might be someone else sitting with …

Reconnecting with your Home

Why on earth do I feel like I’ve just returned from a holiday retreat? I’ll tell you why… I am floating with blissful peace and inner harmony. I feel like I’m walking on clouds and my heart is beating half as fast as normal. I find myself smiling and feeling so unbelievably content. Moving from one job to the next between home-life, parenting, work and study, I am so calm, so light, so refreshed. Where have I been? Nowhere (I didn’t actually go on a retreat – as much as I’d have loved that)! I’ve been home with nothing out of my ordinary routine, just another regular week you could say. RECONNECTING WITH YOUR HOME (YOUR HUB, YOUR SANCTUARY) Life get’s extraordinarily busy, particular this time of year. I’ve been mentioning to my husband the past weeks that home doesn’t feel like home. I felt like it was a port for me to come and go, a ‘base’ not a ‘home’. Why? I allowed the busy-ness of life to start consuming me. When coming home, …

That’s A Wrap

Woweeee…. What a month and what an experience to write specifically about my life before, during and after breast cancer. It certainly took me back in time that’s for sure and that in itself wasn’t always easy. Every time I completed an article I would find myself with mixed emotions… Pure joy… in celebrating how far I have come physically and mentally. Fear… because talking about it, refreshed the question of what if I suffer a recurrence? Gratitude… for the fact my words reached and touched so many people, I was incredibly moved by the kind, honest and grateful feedback I received. Anxiety… both from a little pressure on myself to write well and often, but mostly the emotions being felt all over again, leaving you with that sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. When I wrote, my memories were felt vividly. Bravery… I respect myself so much more having reflected on what I went through and bravery in the fact that I shared really personal aspects of my life for the world to …

Setting Goals

I just wrote pages and pages about setting goals, I initially felt good about the content, it was suitable and practical and the blog was written as a marathon analogy. Why a marathon? My hubby completed the Gold Coast marathon today so I thought it was fitting. [Well done hubby… we are very proud of you.] So… why did I decide not to post these said pages?? It was DULL and lacked unique innovation for a topic so frequently discussed and documented. We’ve all been to seminars, read books and seen loads of compelling content on the web, print and the likes. Reading about goals is motivating in itself, however, just because we have the formula down pat, does not mean we will succeed or achieve. It’s so easy to get lost in the excitement of setting goals but failure to implement is so prevalent. So… I began to think about what I had written and read between the lines of the real message I was trying to convey, what was the emotion or bottom-line …
