It’s an incredibly amazing feeling, knowing exactly what you want and how to get it. Having goals and a purpose to your life, giving you reason to get up each and every day is amazing! When you don’t have goals or purpose, life can be overwhelming. Sometimes, it can seem pointless. It’s like you don’t even know what the point is in going on. This was me a few years ago. I struggled to get

The truth we won’t admit to ourselves

There is no greater battle in life than the battle between the part of you that wants to be healed and the parts of you that are comfortable and content remaining broken – Iyanla VanZant @Super Soul Sunday I saw this quote pop up the other day following a recent Super Soul Sunday interview with Iyanla Van Zant. It shot out and hit me hard as I read the words and was reminded yet again

I have a secret…shhh!

Husbands… Listen up! Ladies… send this link to your hubby! Your wife right there, she does want your help. Believe me. She definitely does! She just doesn’t want to have to ask for that help, or she doesn’t know how to ask for that help. It’s not even specific tasks she wants your help with. That doesn’t mean that she wouldn’t stop you from washing the dishes, doing the washing, mowing the lawns, taking the
“A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.” I’ve seen this quote many times in the past and thought it was very true but this week, as I took the ferry home over some very rough seas, I got thinking more about it. I thought about the pilot of the boat and how skilled he must be to ensure we didn’t capsize as the waves thrashed us about ferociously. I thought about what got him
You know who I mean. She is who you think you need to be, the epitome of perfect in your eyes and everything about her makes you want to throw up…. the relentless questioning of yourself, am I doing a good job when she seems to have it all together and I’m not even close? Why are her kids sitting nicely in the supermarket trolley and mine is currently trying to escape? How is she

How The Universe Caught My Attention

Posted by Britenay on February 2, 2018
Have you ever had one of those moments where it seems like everything going on around you is aimed directly at you? Like it’s the universe trying to tell you a message? I had a moment like that this week. And it was almost a bit scary. I was co-facilitating a learning session, discussing topics such as stress, resiliency and wellbeing. During one of the discussions, one of the participants shared a recent story with

This is a real #mumlife post… When you’re a working Mumma, there is one thing that pops up on your phone that is sure to fill your heart with dread… your child’s school/preschool/daycare/kindy (wherever they are when they are not with you) calling you! That is never good. Now if you’re a seasoned Mumma like me who has a daredevil child, this starts becoming a semi regular gig so when Tatum’s preschool number popped up

Take Two

I have a problem with New Year’s resolutions and this is why… Every year, we get hit with the “New Year, New Me” posts, the “This year is my year!”, and then in late January these sentiments are followed up by “January was just the trial month…” PLEASE stop putting “Use By” dates on your dreams. Every year, month, day, hour, minute, second is a chance to start over. If you want to make a change

Road less travelled

Posted by Britenay on January 26, 2018
Have you ever listened to a song and realised it is speaking to your heart like no other has? This happened to me this morning. As I listened to the song, “Road less travelled” by Lauren Alaina (yes, I love country music). I listened long and hard to the words coming through my headphones. “You won’t make yourself a name if you follow the rules” was what first caught my attention. I never set out

We’re all going on a summer holiday!

Before you become a parent you have all the time in the world. You don’t see it, however, until you become a parent. All of a sudden your “free time” seems to diminish without you even realising it until one day you wake up and realise just how much you need a break. A break from your everyday reality. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love being a Mumma, and I absolutely unequivocally love our
