Forgiveness From My Mat

My yoga journey continues… and does not disappoint.  At the start of last week’s session my instructor reminded all of us that yoga is an individual activity and there is no need to compare yourself to others – don’t even compare yourself… to yourself….there is no need to compare what you could do last time … Continue reading

Finding Grace

The whole time I was pregnant with Rowan I was positive she was a boy… mostly because my husband’s coo-coo-ka-choo aunt said she “had a vision”…. after Rowan was not a boy she informed us that she saw that her neighbours had a baby boy.. that must have been the boy that she “saw” – … Continue reading

Oh dear, sitting here thinking and thinking and thinking… and surprise, surprise, I am a-cryin’ again.  Today my tears are for the Mama I judged so harshly 2 1/2 years ago and that Mama was me.   The trouble with being an over-anaylyzer is that you…  well… over-analyze…  and the worst analyzing is always performed on … Continue reading

Have you had a chance to see “Adele Live at Royal Albert Hall”…. please do, I mean, if you like her music.  She is such a breath of fresh air, funny, vulnerable, genuine… and well, that girl can sing!   Throughout the concert she is genuinely amazed at what a dream come true it is … Continue reading

I Tore Up The Past Instead!

I Tore Up The Past Instead!

I did it – as promised -I burned up the past ! Well, truthfully, I ripped into a hundred tiny pieces and threw it in the garbage….I had 2 choices-  burn up the past while the girls are awake or wait until they are asleep.  I didn’t think “burning up the past” was exactly the … Continue reading

I have sat down in front of this computer several times since our big Princess Ball event with the intention of giving thanks and for the first time I have writer’s block.  I realize now this block is largely due to the fact that what’s in my head and what’s in my heart cannot be … Continue reading
