TISSUES AND TEARS

At our monthly gathering this week, one of our usually most cheerful and gregarious members was very quiet. When I looked across at her, she seemed far away, unfocussed, almost preoccupied with her own thoughts. As everyone chatted and caught up with news before we settled down, instead of being part of it all she was […]

BACK TO REALITY

A friend of mine who has just returned from a long weekend away with her two daughters wrote “Back To Reality” on her BBM status. That phrase set me thinking. Are good times, happy times, holiday times not “reality”? Is our reality boring, trivial, uninteresting. Are our holiday/down times some alternate reality that we can […]

TO HOARD OR NOT TO HOARD

So doll, I am really trying to simplify my life! Doing a lot of cleaning out at home. It certainly is liberating throwing away “stuff”. Remember when DVD players superceded the good old video recorders? Well, we have BOXES of videos. Programmes we recorded from TV. There they sat, cluttering up the bookcase, gathering dust. […]

THE MESSAGES OF LIFE

Have you ever noticed how something you may be avoiding, or hate doing, in your life, is actually trying to tell you something? Let me explain doll….I train two or three times a week at a local gym with a wonderful personal trainer who is probably the only person on the planet who can actually […]

TO DETOX OR NOT TO DETOX

To start the new year off with a detox, good idea, right? Yup that’s what I thought too! So I signed up for a 7 day yogic cleanse, determined to do the right thing and go into 2012 having let go of the past, old issues and of course getting a whole new sparkly clean […]

2012 HERE WE GO

2012 is upon us! Festive season seems to have whizzed past, as time tends to do these days. I try and read something inspirational daily, preferably early in the morning before my day starts. Don’t always get that part right, but hey, I’m only human after all 🙂 – Robin Sharma, Wayne Dyer, A Course […]

LIVE WITHOUT REGRET

Well here we are doll, the (almost) end of what has been a turbulent, fast moving, fairly hectic year for most people. The world as we know it is changing moment by moment. Mother Nature is flexing her muscles and showing us all too clearly who rules!  Life is fragile, uncertain and changes forever in a heartbeat. My […]

JUST A THOUGHT

My goodness, where does the time go? Is it really July since I “blogged”. I have committed the cardinal sin (so say the experts) of not keeping my Blog up to date 🙁 The past 5 months have been something of a blur – so much to do, so little time!! Do you sometimes feel […]

TIME TIME TIME

My goodness, where does the time go? Is it really July since I “blogged”. I have committed the cardinal sin (so say the experts) of not keeping my Blog up to date 🙁 The past 5 months have been something of a blur – so much to do, so little time!! Do you sometimes feel […]

PRECIOUS PARENTS

My very best friend is currently dealing with losing her Mum. She lost her Dad to illness only last year. Some women, when they lose their life partner, create new lives for themselves. They go on to new and wonderful experiences. Sometimes they mourn the loss of their spouse/partner, sometimes they don’t. Some remain frozen […]
