    ISO-Organising

    For the first time in a long time I can honestly tell you that I feel as though my world at home is coming together. You probably think this post sounds boring, strange or even a funny thing to write about, but before iso-times began, I felt as though I never had time to do those extra tasks that need to be done around the home, you know conquering cupboards, cleaning out out-of-control drawers, and tackling the garage. While some painted, DIYed, crafted, baked, learned to play instruments, put puzzles together, read, and watched movies, I made the decision to get my home in order. My goal was to become…

    Speaking to the Busyness

    Can you believe we are 10 weeks into 2020!? I hate to say it, but I think 2020 is going to be one of those years that could get away from us if we don’t take it by the horns, make intentional decisions, put an action plan in place, and go for it. Imagine what we could do if we felt as though we could do anything?! I heard years ago that it takes 21 days to form a new habit, but Google says, ‘it takes an average of 66 days’. If Google is right, this means we really have to get a move on so that we can make…

    Living a Bigger Life

    To live a bigger life, one needs to throw caution to the wind, shake off fear and unbelief, and make a decision to choose life instead of lazy, easy and comfortable. Living a Bigger life is about doing something you really want to do despite the fear, unbelief, unknown or discomfort. In 2019, I struggled with the idea of wanting a bigger, and a more exciting lifestyle, but I also wanted to chill out and avoid getting uncomfortable. It’s so easy to not put myself out, not make plans, not go to events, say no to things that I really want to do – but can’t be bothered because it‘s…

    19 for 2019

    We are 19 days into 2019. Funnily enough, I thought it would be a great day to tell you my 19 for 2019 plan. Some of them are the same as last years list. Truthfully, I didn’t have a brilliant 2018, and I didn’t succeed at many of my goals on the list. I touched on a few, but it really was a pathetic effort on my part. I let a situation that hurt me, taint last year, and while I can’t do anything about that situation, there was something healing about leaving the last year at the door of this brand new year. There were great moments, decisions and…

    Finding that Life Harmony!

    One thing I really like to do is read about how other people in other countries in the world live their lives. For instance, in Denmark, they regularly practice a custom they call hygge (hoo-gah).   If you are wondering what this is, it simply means ‘getting cosy’.  Essentially hygge is about creating a sensory pleasing space in our homes that help us relax.  The Danes make a daily decision to look after themselves, de-stress, and get comfortable or cosy.   Imagine coming home after a day at work, putting on something a little more comfortable, flicking on some music, lighting a candle, pouring a glass of wine, making a…

    Chasing a Slow and Meaningful LIfe

    It turns out, ‘simplifying your life` isn’t as simple as I thought it would be. One of my personal goals for this year is to simplify my life. I am chasing a slower and a more meaningful life. My ultimate goal is to live a life based on good decisions and values, spend as much quality time with my family and friends, and do all of those things I personally love to do – reading, writing, walking on the beach, chilling out, taking photographs, learning a craft etc. Reality Check! While simplicity sounds relatively easy, and it is in theory, its not so easy when you think of the long list…

    Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017

    I can’t believe Christmas 2016 is over for another year! We had a great Christmas!  We celebrated on Christmas day with my side of the family this year.  We alternate celebrating Christmas day with our two families.  My brothers and their wives and families drove to the Coast and we all congregated at mums.   We did presents first and boy that was fun!  Paper filled the lounge room, and the squeals of delight from all the kids was wonderful to hear.  It was noisy, chaotic, and fun.   Everyone then pulled together and got food to the table for lunch. I think my favourite part of Christmas is watching…

    A Mischievious Christmas

    Christmas is a season that should be enjoyed, happy memories made, and mums should not be locked in the kitchen preparing the meal while everyone else is having fun. Sadly, the Christmas period can be a stressful time in the year for many mums and it really shouldn’t be. My favourite mantra is ‘Keep It Simple’, because its important to get back to what Christmas is all about. Its about connecting with the people in our lives that are special to us. To ‘keep life as simple’ as possible, you must get yourself and your family organised. Everyone (including extended family) needs to be on the same page. The goal…
