    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…

    Know your Why?

    Knowing why we do life the way we do it, is one of the most important questions we can ask ourselves. As someone who tries to simplify my life on a regular basis, I find that I often ask myself the why question.  Many days I ask myself ‘What  am I doing!?’  Sometimes daily, sometimes multiple times a day!! To find that inner calm in our daily walk, we need to figure out how best to live our lives simply.   This is an ongoing process or adventure for me. What I know to be true is this.   Good advice is not helpful when you don’t know what your…

    Keep it Simple 2018

    Hello January!!! I must say that I am very happy that 2017 has gone.   The new year is very welcome. The line has been drawn in the sand.   The old has gone and the new is here.   It is time to move forward and not look backwards. One of my favourite podcast series is called,  ‘Happier with Gretchen Rubin’.  A podcast that talks about intentionally adding happiness into our lives.   Gretchen and her sister Elizabeth Craft, are now up too episode 150, and over the last few episodes have been talking about creating a ‘18 for 2018’ list of things you want to do, achieve, or…

    Happy Mother’s Day

    Its Mother’s Day on Sunday! Many mums look at their lives and analyse how they’re doing in their role as a mother. Some days I feel great about motherhood.  Other days I thank God we all survived the day!  Most days I move through the day feeling cool and calm like ‘Mary Poppins’, other days when I feel overwhelmed and out of sorts I feel a little like ‘Bruce Banner’ on a stressful day. I have discovered that Motherhood = Imperfection! And while many will disagree with me when I say that imperfection is okay.  This thought is what helps me when I have 4 baskets of clothing waiting to be…

    Just a Little Hygge

    Usually the start of Autumn brings that ‘sad, blah, it’s the end of Summer yuck feeling’ in the pit off my tummy, however, after an insanely intense hot summer, I don’t actually feel that sad about the new change of  season. In fact, I welcome Autumn.  At this moment,  I am looking forward to some cooler weather.  My only issue with Autumn come winter are the shorter days. Our Queensland winters aren’t really all that cold.  We might have the occasional day where we can’t get away with a t-shirt and jeans, but on the whole, we don’t have winters where we need a fireplace or central heating. This week, I…

    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…

    Happiness, Habits and Hobbies

    Recently, I listened to one of my many favourite podcasts ‘Straight and Curly’ with kelly Exeter and Carly Jacobs, who were talking about how important it is to have hobbies.   At the time I was quick to react with some quick ‘I don’t have time for any hobbies!’ type of remark. And then I had a moment of feeling blue, until it suddenly occurred to me that I do in fact have hobbies! I enjoy writing on my blog and taking photos.  I also love to read, listen to podcasts and watch movies.   I like to go walking on the beach, making sandcastles with the kids, garage sales and…

    September – The Love Month

    September is my favourite month of the year! Welcome to September – the month of sunshine and happiness! Our moderate-mostly-warm-Winter has gone, and Spring has come around again.  The days are becoming longer, the birds are chirping, and the flowers are starting to burst and bloom with colour.  There is a sense of excitement in the air, and I know its all because Spring has arrived.  I think the best way to describe this feeling I have is that I feel my soul is rejoicing – Spring has arrived! Its a great time of year for so many reasons. 1. Warmer Weather. Spring means the weather is warming up and jumpers can be put…
