There's nothing I love more than falling into a good book.

I was one of those kids who read everything I could get my hands on...nothing's really changed. If it's got words on it, you'll usually find me reading it.

My dearly beloved cleared out the mail box tonight of th...

Life has been a little up and down for me lately.

Not enough hours in the day.

Too many things to do in too short a time.

Too many demands and a head that refuses to 'shut down' the busier life becomes.

If you can relate--read on.

This photograph reminded me of the many fac...

I'm asking myself where did the first quarter of the year go?

I'm also looking at my goals for this quarter and I'm pleased to report that I've likely hit 80% of them.

How have you done with your goals for the first quarter?

If you're struggling with achieving your potent...

When I was trying to get sober, I had a line drawing on my fridge. I eventually coloured it in I loved it so much. It was a photograph of a pelican trying to swallow a frog. The frog had a hand around the pelican’s neck and wasn’t letting go!

Underneath the words said,...

You know the feeling.

All the best intentions and then...Bam!

Out of nowhere something gets in the way of your well structured new routine/hobby/exercise program/resolution... Fill in the blank here.

I don’t know about you (and I’ve talked about it before) but it’s so eas...

I had time to reflect today.

As I write this, it’s the day before Valentine’s Day--the day when every woman (and probably a lot of men) who are involved in a romantic relationship have some kind of romantic expectation that may (or may not) be met tomorrow.

Remember the...

This post could easily have a sub-heading, "How to Manage the Unmanageable" or even, "My Stationery Obsession" :-)

I was thinking about the way that I keep my life and my tasks in order. I like to think that I’m a modern woman who’s embracing technology. I mean, I own a...

So I talked about my own struggle with self-care at the beginning of this week. Of course, it’s not only when I’m trying to get back into my yearly routine that I struggle with self-care.

I’m a mother and a wife and a (sort of) employee (I’m self-employed...so my boss c...

It’s February already, so I tell myself I should be well back into my routine.

I don’t know what it’s like where you are in the world, but here in New Zealand, it’s the middle of summer and that still makes me want to be in holiday mode. The local children may have gone...

When I practice gratitude it helps me to look for the positive things, people and influences in my life.

It makes it easier to build a shield against the negative that I'm constantly bombarded with--one of the reasons that I'm extra careful about the media (and social m...
