All in a Days Journey

Our days are filled with so much mystery that you just never know what one day will hold. Will today be the day you finally win the lottery? Will you make a new friend? Will today be the day you hear bad news?

When our alarm goes off, and our feet (finally) hit the floor we never truly know what the day will hold. We muster up the strength and find the desire to rise from our cosy nest of slumber and face another day with VIGOR, STRENGTH AND ENDURANCE. We do this because we never know what surprises today has in store for us.

For this reason I have decided to share (see bar to your left in red) about my day, what it has looked like, what I've accomplished, the challenges I've faced and all the in between.  I hope you enjoy these bursts of life that are usually contained in a handful of some complete and some very incomplete sentences ~ just another way of communicating the life of a mum on the move!

Enjoy friends and thanks for stopping by!

Mid Life Changes

Hey friends I hosted an amazing show today and would love you to listen ON DEMAND. 

The show was inspired by the courage of Susan Boyle (Britian's Got Talent see http://www.thefamilyroomaustralia.blogspot article April 16, 09 titled 'Go Susan Boyle'). I had two guests with me, Wendy Froberg, who at the age of 51 decided to throw the towel in on her exceptional career and practice that she had built up over decades (she was a well respected phycologist in Canada). My other guest was 72 year old, Isabel Taylor, who in her 60's wrote her first book and her second at 65.

Amazing stories of two women who have dared to be different and dared to live the dream. They stepped out mid-life and began to live the dream.

I would love you to listen to the show and allow yourself to be inspired by the lives of two extraordinary women in my world. Like Susan Boyle, they have decided to step on to the stage and allow their gifts to be shared and enjoyed.

To listen ON DEMAND simply go to: 

I can't wait to hear from you.

Happy Easter to Everyone

Happy Easter everyone! I hope this weekend is filled with good food, great company and way too much chocolate. 

I encourage you to simply enjoy this weekend. Spend time reflecting on the past and refocussing for the future. If you are enjoying the 'long weekend' then let your body relax and recharge, go for a walk a bike ride or a hike with the family. Allow your soul space to settle so it can be, as that your life can be just as that great hymn says, 'it is well, it is well, it is well with my soul.' Then of course, being body, soul and spirit you need to give your spirit time to rejoice in all things new. New life, new hope, new vision and new creativity. Acknowledge life and allow life to extend to it's fullest and dare to even dream what the days, weeks and months ahead could look like.

So friends, enjoy your chocolate (or stealing a few pieces from your kiddies:). Let me know how your Easter worked out and please stay in touch.

(PS ~ if you're struggling for something to eat for dinner tonight jump on for a great Easter Dinner idea!

Teen Suicide - A Very Real Issue

Hey all I want to encourage you to jump over to thefamilyroom site and check out all the stats and information I've put on there regarding Teen Suicide ( I also would love you to have a listen to today's morning show ( where we truly unpacked Teen Suicide.

Big topic indeed and one that needs to be discussed. Stats are scary friends. Our children are at risk. Join the conversation and together let's see the suicide rates amongst teens decrease.

Thanks for going on this journey with me. I truly value and appreciate every one of you!
