Are You Living a Life of Passion and Purpose?

March 21, 2017

It’s easy to spot those living their life of passion and purpose – they are the ones full of energy, vitality and enthusiasm. They’ve identified what is important to them, what inspires them and this underlays how they live each day. For many of us though, life has lost its lustre and the busyness of everyday and the stress, anxiety and a lack of balance is often an underlying factor. We’ve lost sight of what’s important to us because we are just coping with getting through our days. ....

What does Living with Great Health & Wellness Look Like for You?

February 27, 2017

Forget “Clean Living, forget “Super Foods” forget “Raw”, forget “Paleo”, forget “Declutter” and “Minimalism”…. “Wellness” and your “Wellbeing” is the new buzz “word” in town and unlike all the other fads that hit the headlines each year, I’m right behind the “Wellness Movement”. I read in Sunday’s Body & Soul (Herald Sun, February 26th, 2017), that 3.5 million Australians are affected by diabetes. According to Greg Johnson (Diabetes Australi....

The Tale of 2 Wolves

This is a Cherokee legend of on old man teaching his grandson about life, and the two wolves that reside within all of us. Many of you may have heard of this Native American legend. I find it very powerful in its simplicity. I often refer back to it when I feel my thoughts are out of balance or I just need a simple reminder of where to direct my focus. The festive season and all the chaos, stress and demands that surround it is the perfect time for this simple reminder and so I thought I’d sha....

Let’s Get Excited About Winter

April 19, 2013

Some people love the cooler months and embrace winter as it is their favorite time of year. Others, on the other hand, struggle with the idea of shorter daylight hours, colder temperatures, wet and windy days and bleak skies. I am one of those people. I like to write about our ‘attitude’ to winter because it forces me to change my mindset and think of the good things about winter rather than focus on the negative things…because let’s face it, Winter is with us for the next 3 months so....

Celebrating Mum

March 4, 2012

Mother’s Day is about celebrating and pampering our Mums. It’s about acknowledging and appreciating how nurturing, caring, loving, empowering and resilient they really are and showing our true appreciation of them for always being there for us. Spoiling and pampering is a must for Mum on Mother’s Day and gestures from the heart are all the more special because we give not only in monetary terms but we give of our time – something that we all seem to be a little short of these days. ....

An Unforgettable Experience

October 29, 2011

Isn't it such a great feeling of achievement when you rise to a challenge...  succeed in something that stretches your comfort zone; your boundaries.   I'm so excited to tell you that we completed our 7 day Larapinta trek- through the West MacDonnell ranges, near Alice Springs. And to thank all those generous people who sponsored me to take up the challenge (we raised well over $5000.00 for our Chilean women's charity, "La Leona"). And it was Awesome! We saw amazing views and s....

Balance & Reflection

September 15, 2011

Spending nearly 3 weeks in Japan certainly has a balancing effect on a person. Not only does removing oneself totally from their normal routine and environment create a place to reflect, learn, relax and grow but being immersed in a different culture brings rich experiences that can be brought home, assimilated,  and used to enhance and enrich your own life. To lead a balanced, enriching life we all know that we must eat well and exercise… because without optimal health and energy it becom....
