Space Clearing

Recently I took my love of house cleaning to a new level with a space clearing. I have decluttered and cleaned and now I have cleansed. Just as literal stuff can clog up your home, so can energetic stuff. It needn’t be as extreme as ghost-hunters but energy from you and previous residents can get… Continue reading Space Clearing

Law of Attraction

Everything is a vibration, like attracts like, energy out equals energy in. These are ways that the law of attraction has been described. It’s a woo woo one today guys! It can be hard when you want something, not to focus on the lack of it but this is what we must do to attract… Continue reading Law of Attraction

Day Tripper

I can very easily stay in my little corner of the world and consider a tram to the next suburb a major mission. In the holidays, I discovered the joy of day tripping. It took me so long to find out. And I found out. I realised that an escape to the country was simply… Continue reading Day Tripper

The festival of cleaning

Now, I’ve been officially living with less for a couple of years now, since being inspired by Marie Kondo’s book with the best title ever, “The life-changing magic of tidying up” and the documentary “Minimalism” by the Minimalists.

I do it in on the daily

Over the holidays-hurrah! Rare teacher perk-I followed a ‘magic’ formula for things to do each day that have a positive impact on mind, body and spirit. Behold M-M-W-G-F. A not so catchy acronym for: Move-Meditate-Write-Gratitude-Fun. I did these things on the daily and loved every minute of it and I’d do it again I tells… Continue reading I do it in on the daily

Get out of the house

I love being at home. Perhaps sometimes I love it too much. I’ll get invited somewhere and I’ll think “but…couch!” While it’s very safe in my cocoon, it is easy to get stuck in whatever mood I’m in. This is all good if it’s an upbeat one which sees me giggling to myself, bouncing on… Continue reading Get out of the house

Community

They used to say it takes a village to raise a child and ‘neighbours, everybody needs good neighbours’ but what has happened to our concept of community in this modern age. Social media gives us the illusion of connectedness but can also make us feel more isolated and give us constant FOMO. Everyone is loved… Continue reading Community

A room of one’s own

“Give her a room of her own and five hundred a year, let her speak her mind and leave out half that she now puts in, and she will write a better book one of these days” Virginia Woolf. I used to think that temporariness would bring me the sense of freedom I so desired.… Continue reading A room of one’s own
