Sabbatical

July 15, 2017

Busy… A word I heard thrown around a lot between adults & as a kid. “How was your week?” to which they would answer, “Busy”. Seemed like a popular response? But now, that I myself am a grown up (most of the time), I find myself answering the very same thing when asked the same question – “BUSY!” And now having had a baby? WOW! How I do ponder what I was so busy doing back when I had all that spare time prior…

Calm Among The Chaos

July 8, 2017

‘Different’ Society today usually associates this words with other words like ‘weird’, ‘abnormal’, ‘outcast’. But in my opinion, it should be associated with words like ‘unique’, ‘exciting’, ‘interesting’ and ‘accepted’. (that’s a whole other conversation for another day right?) But when it comes to our life stages ‘changing’ or becoming ‘different’ the emotions we face as people are usually along the lines of fear, anxiety, worry, nervousness and so on. So why do we angst over the thought of things being different?…

Planning To Procrastinate

May 28, 2017

It seems like an oxymoron doesn’t it? But I swear I actually make a plan to do something in advance, knowing full well that I am most likely going to procrastinate like a BOSS once the time arrives to follow through with it. And I do feel like procrastination is different to laziness somehow? (that’s the excuse I’m going with anyway) I wouldn’t necessarily classify myself as a lazy person, but more like a distracted person (haha I guarantee when my husband…

It’s All About Community

April 29, 2017

When I was in school one of the things I used to hate was ‘clicks’. I’m sure we’re all familiar with them. Groups of people (girls & boys alike) sitting in concentric circles gabbing about the same stuff everyday, because they were all the same kinds of people. I used to be that kid who wanted to just be friends with everyone, to sit with different people everyday & get to befriend people who were deemed not ‘cool’ enough by the…

Behind The Duck

March 25, 2017

On my morning walk around the lake, I get to witness what feels like heaven. The fresh crisp Autumn air, the sun beaming to symbolise a brand new day, the cool breeze blowing through the trees & the long chats with my baby girl, gabbing about all the wonderful things she will do in life. The other morning I was caught in a moment by something totally random, but it stopped me in my tracks & took me on a new…

New Car Smell

March 4, 2017

It really does wear off… You buy a new outfit, a new phone, a new car and for those first few days or weeks, the feeling is sweet. You feel fresh, ignited & treat it with the upmost care. 2 weeks later you’re on the hunt for an upgrade. I recently purchased an iPhone 7+ & while using it the first day I couldn’t believe how much bigger it was in comparison to my now minuscule iPhone 6.  I was…
