We were created for relationship. For community. What people the world over are currently experiencing is not natural. But at this present moment in time, we have no choice but to accept our circumstances and, for the greater good, embrace them! The focus needs to be on staying connected while isolated.
Isolation – the process or fact of isolating or being isolated; without relation to other people or things; separately. Continue reading “Staying connected while isolated”
As Easter approaches, our world has entered an unsettled and, at times, fear-filled time. All around us events have been cancelled, our usual schedules are paused, and we are socially isolated and staying at home. Continue reading “Easter looks a little different this year”
Well, that escalated quickly! It is amazing how much our world has changed in recent weeks. We are surrounded by uncertainty. Planning seems impossible. It all feels out of control. How do we ‘fear less’ in the midst of this? Continue reading “How to fear less when it all feels out of control”
Over the past 7 years of motherhood, I like to believe I’ve adopted a combination of hands-on and hands-off parenting. I’m not a helicopter mum but also not a free-range mum. I’m somewhere in the middle. I set boundaries that allow me to sit back and relax. You might say I’ve found a creative way to be a little lazy in motherhood. And I’m okay with that. Besides, we all need little mummy hacks to make life easier so we can spend the time and energy on the things we enjoy! Continue reading “Mummy hacks”
My husband and I had our first child just one month shy of our first wedding anniversary. Boy, were we in for a shock as we began to navigate married life after kids! We attempted to go away to a beautiful resort to relax and celebrate but instead, we spent the whole time trying to get our unwell, non-sleeping one month old to stop crying and sleep… So romantic. Continue reading “Navigating married life after kids”
Are you a confident mum? Are any of us totally confident mums? Motherhood can make us feel like we are drowning and confidence is the boost we need to keep us afloat. I have found that being confident in myself has really helped me in my mothering journey.
But HOW do we become more confident? Continue reading “Become a confident mum”
We all need relationships and this is especially true when we become mothers. We were created to interact with others and do life together. We need friends but sometimes in the midst of motherhood it can be a challenge to find your people. Continue reading “Find your people”
Self-care! Self-care! SELF-CARE!! We hear it a lot, don’t we? We need to do it. We should do it. It’s important. But life is sooo busy! Especially with young families. “The kids need me!” I hear mums say. “It’s a selfish thing to take time for myself” or “I should be able to just get on with it, shouldn’t I?”. Continue reading “How and why you should make self-care a priority”
We are well and truly into the new year (how is it February already?!) and, I know for a lot of people, 2020 may already feel too busy. Finding the seemingly irretrievable balance in life is a constant struggle for many of us. We want to live our lives to the full but simply end up with full schedules instead. We need blank space in our weeks. Continue reading “Blank space”
I don’t know about all of you but 2019 was certainly a big year for me! As a rather emotional being, I always get a little sad when a year comes to an end. BUT there is always much to look forward to in the year to come. Including the MOPS theme for 2020 “To The Full”! Continue reading “Farewell 2019! Welcome 2020!”
