I'm baa-ack! Even though it's been over a month since we lived through this epic renovation weekend, I swear some of the exhaustion hangover is still lingering in our daily lives. My plans to spread the project out over 3 weekends so that we didn't find ourselves pushed to our limits went flying out the … Continue reading Renovation Project – Day 2
I've been sharing with you my experiences as I undertake some coaching and although it's been a few days since I spoke with my coach, this one thing that happened during my most recent session (a week ago) is something that I've already found myself implementing almost daily and it's had such a positive impact … Continue reading The Question that is Changing My Life
Three years ago I moved to Auckland. ... Skip a lot of back story because today is not the day for that. Onto the part where I tell you that I worked my f*cking butt off to become the only employee to join the management team within 3 months. I then ended up running a … Continue reading From One Day, to Day One – The Renovation Project
Recently I attended my first life coaching session. Having never been around this type of thing before, I really wasn't sure what to expect. That day I was sick as a dog. Felt absolutely terrible! On a day that I desperately should have stayed in bed to rest and recover, I dragged myself out to … Continue reading What Does Success Look Like?
I'm a big believer in the law of attraction. People doubt... but because of experiences in my own life, I truly believe it's a thing! Intend it - Action it - Receive it Carrying on from my last post, you can see that I like to keep myself busy. On any given day if you … Continue reading Accepting Opportunity
So here's what's been happening. I turned 33 last month. I started a collaborative project and am blogging with one of my oldest friends over at Stronger You. So shocked at myself for not having mentioned this earlier! You can find the blog here, Facebook here, and Instagram here. I had hinted about this project … Continue reading It’s Alive!
What's one of the best ways to foster a close relationship, as well as help grow the 'language' connections in a child's developing brain? Read to them! Start from infancy, you don't need to wait until they're school age. I can tell you from experience that the times I've spent reading with my children are some … Continue reading Women in Business – Interview with Jo Carson-Barr
We've reached that part of toddler life where tantrums ensue at any moment over the most ridiculous of reasons. *My shoe is on the right foot! Yes, I said right foot...it can be an issue apparently. *I wanted to eat that regurgitated piece of food I threw on the floor! *I need to wear Daddy's … Continue reading Trying to Save My Sanity is Leading Me Back to Creating!
I was once told that I was nothing without this certain somebody. That I had nothing going for me. That I was stupid for thinking I could do anything without them, and that when the going got tough, I would be back. It angered me. Words hurt. Especially when your self esteem is already so … Continue reading Uhh Uhh, You Can’t Tell Me Nothin’
I'm currently working on a project with one of my closest friends. That alone was a worrying thought in the beginning and I'm sure at times it will flitter through my mind again. Today, however, it was the reason I did the hard thing. As I sat down to check my emails after lunch, I … Continue reading Do the Hard Thing
I've never been one for labels. We grew up sometimes with money, sometimes with nothing. We had enough, I never felt like we didn't. Even if at times I knew we didn't have much. I could feel my parents struggle during those times and I would try to ease the burden by not asking for … Continue reading Living With Less
That's it. The party's over! Not that having five children in the house is like a party... aside from maybe the noise levels, the mess, and the fighting out of nowhere over the stupidest little thing. I don't usually talk about it. It hurts too much. It's the topic that can break me in a … Continue reading I Heard It Through The Grapevine
