#1 Why you can personally pivot

By DIY, Home Renovation
I think positive visual reminders are important for us all. It's a good thing to be reminded of our abilities to stay focused and flow; not compare ourselves to others; step up and do the work that is required; take responsibility for our life direction and show Grace no matter what. Positive visual reminders also help us to remember that we are way stronger than we think. I hope you enjoy this visual (giggle?!) reminder…

Listen Up! Your House Is Asking For A Homely Renovation.

By DIY, Home Renovation, Slow Down
Do you adore your home and like me, little by little, love to pretty it up? Having a home which is gently and lovingly upgraded, reflecting you and your inner world is an absolute blessing I believe. This is all possible even if you are the owner of the house you dwell in or in some cases, even if you are not. Significant changes in your home can be either small or large; cost the…

A 6 figure salary. Overnight to nothing.

By Home Renovation, Minimalist
The #1 secret of living large with less. Terror took over. My (financial) future looked frightening.

A once encouraging and thriving career in I.T. travelling the globe…

By Home Renovation, Minimalist, Slow Down

Please. The children and I would need somewhere to…

For Sale. Sold.

By Home Renovation, Slow Down
Friday 08th September 2017 and the FOR SALE sign went up on our family home. More heartbreak, really?  I am confronted constantly with my deep sadness. For all I have gained on this journey, for all the love and support I have received, I wish to not have had to go through the heartbreak that I have. I wish this more for my children. I know I will always have deep sadness in my heart…

The Night Before

By Home Renovation, Slow Down
April 2017, I was in the midst of a legal battle and I wondered if it ever would end. I asked my family lawyer what the possible time frame was for these things to reach settlement.  I was already 5 months in. On average, 7-8 months she said. I was hopeful for the end of the year, surely 12 months should be doable. For all my prayers and gratitude, the days were sad and difficult…
