5 Boundaries To Simplify And Skyrocket Your Life Immediately

Since I often struggle with the way may day flows on a daily basis, I am a firm believer in setting healthy boundaries. Once set if you can keep them your life will flow more easily and you will still feel that everything is getting accomplished. So here's the list. I don't recommend trying to change too many things in your life at once, it's all about baby steps.  good luck with your journey.  Set days for deliveries, visitors, laundry etc. You won't get so frustrated about the build-up of laundry or being home for your special delivery if you know that you have booked and scheduled these kinds of things for specific days of the month. My favourite day to arrange for visitors, laundry, shopping and post deliveries is the 30th and 31st. That way I know we will be entering the new month with peace of mind that…

11 Ways To Add More Motivation To Your Life.

Whoever you are, wherever you are in life. We could all use a little more motivation. So I've compiled a list to refer back to when times are tough and we're finding it hard to push though. It's a great idea to have a toolbox of tips under your belt that you can cultivate in your children too when they're finding it tough. 1. Always have something to work towards. Give yourself a passion project to work towards and break it down into bite sized pieces. Work on one or two a day and your goals will appear to be achieved almost automatically. 2. Schedule fun. Schedule fun days into your diary months in advance and id say go as far as buying the tickets if its a costly event. When you're feeling a bit crappy you can get up and go see what you have to look forward to…

Mummy Thoughts on Self Mastery

I have been exploring what self-mastery means for quite some time now. So here are my thoughts on self-mastery, for me, self-mastery means getting unstuck by overcoming our fears, emotions and ego. Committing to greater life no matter the distance and hardships. Escaping the norm and blazing our own trail towards a life designed by ourselves and not dictated by others, Becoming the best versions of ourselves. I want this for myself and I want this for my children. I want it so badly. I want them to reach for their highest goals and attain them. I want them to be committed to lifelong learning and continuous improvement. I want them to see the opportunities hidden inside of their failures so that they're never too afraid to try. There's one thing I've learnt being a single parent and it's that kids don't always just do what they're told, well mine don't anyway. I raised…

Why Is Parenting So Hard?

I used to ask this question all the time and I always came to the same conclusion. It's my fault parenting is hard and guess what it's your fault too. But hang on before you click the back button because that's not such a bad thing, it actually means we have the power to improve it. I'm not sure that's what you wanted to hear but I'm not here to tell you what you want to hear, I'm here to tell you what you might NEED to hear. Yes, parenting is hard but (our life consists of patterns we've adopted by default or design) sometimes it helps to admit it when we are making life hard for ourselves and do a good honest assessment of why and how we make things hard and what we can do about it. So here it is, my list of the things I do…

27 Habits Of Highly Empowered Parents, That You Can Easily Adopt.

  In my pursuit of a better life for my children and I, I have learnt that there are a few habits of highly empowered parents that are mostly simple to implement but produce great results. Here are the top things I've learnt on my journey so far. 1. Listening Skills. Empowered parents listen to their children fully and completely, (even if it's interrupting important mum jobs) and support their children to work through any problems that have arisen. A child who feels listened to by someone will continue to communicate with that person openly. Show interest in her interests. Make sure that you are that person by listening intently when your child wants to show you their Minecraft world, list the trains in Thomas the Tank, showcase the latest makeup tutorial or toy unboxing video on youtube. 2. Freedom From The Opinion of Others. For everything that you do…

How About You Love, Honour and Cherish Yourself?

Love, Honour and Cherish Yourself. Do you know who you are? Do you know how worthy of love you are? What have you done for you lately? I think the world is lacking in people who love, honour and cherish themselves. Let's be the next ones who decide to join them. I think it was Socrates that said above all else we should know ourselves. But I'd take it one step further and say our first lesson in life should be to love our selves fully and wholly. When we love, honour and cherish ourselves we accept ourselves fully and no amount of rejection and humiliation can make a big enough dent in our self-esteem to bring us down. We don't need external approval or validation. We know that everyone is behaving based on their level of education and experience in the world.   Don't give to anybody else what…

Your Life and Time is Precious. It’s time To Get Fear Out of The Driving Seat.

I look into your eyes and all I see is beauty yet your world is ruled by fear. How can a person so beautiful be so fearful? I know you've been through some tough stuff in your life, I know you've felt unimaginable pain. I know you've wept at night and I know you worry yourself silly about things happening or things re-happening. But you know what? Fear is weak and you can overcome it. Fear is a signpost to something deeper. If you looked inside of yourself deeply enough you would find unimaginable strength and power.  You can use fear and pain to move you to a place you never dreamt possible. A place full of possibilities, a place where fear is your ally which can be flipped into excitement. In this place, we see our worries for what they are, not real and not worth the attention. You…

Giving kids the best choices and chances for life success.

My life so far is a culmination of the choices I've made. I've made some good choices and I've made some terrible choices and I've learned a ton along the way. Each decision I made brought me closer to the person I am today. If I had the chance to do it again I'd probably change a few things but overall I'm grateful for the opportunities and lessons that life has given me. I believe they have made me a better person. But every day I look at my children and I pray they don't repeat my mistakes. I wonder what they're making of it all. How much do they actually listen to the lessons I'm trying to send their way? How much will they learn from watching my actions? I want the best for them and I try to surround them with amazing people and opportunities for growth. It's…
