Attitude of Gratitude

No matter how bad you may think your life is, there is someone who would love to 'swap' places with you. No matter how much you may dislike your body, there is always someone who would love to have it (and no I am not talking about 'having' it I mean as in a body …

Dragonflies and Fairies

This week we had our first meeting of the Trailblazers for the Church of the Earth. I mentioned last week that I have been asked to help with their social media and blogs. I have already created a Pinterest account for us as we attended a blog webinar which said that Pinterest is one of …

Heritage & Healing

November is Native American Heritage Month. The Native American narrative has long been controlled by a history told through the eyes of the dominant Western culture. In order to change this narrative, we must understand there is a narrative to be changed and a heritage to celebrate.  Let us touch on a few myths. I …

The Knowledge

Last weekend the Mother City was blessed with the most glorious weather! Spring was supposed to have sprung in SA back in September, but I think the memo must have been delivered by our non-existent postal service because Cape Town weather has ranged from haphazard to miserable. Typically just as we started to relax into …

Serving the Powers

I mentioned last week about the Women's Soul Circle I attended. In one of the guided meditations we used sound and listened to music and no matter how much I tried to 'clear' my thoughts, my mind kept bringing up the same word: "Healer". I've mentioned before that when I've had past life regressions that …

Lazy Days and Sundays

Last Saturday Norm and I joined our friends Dave, Julie and Darren for lunch at Chef's Warehouse which is a beautiful restaurant at the Beau Constantia Vineyard. They also have a designated area for wine tasting or just to imbibe in a social setting. We have so many choices of first class restaurants on our …

The Weight of Other People’s Opinions

I mentioned in my last post that Norm's birthday was Sunday the 17th and that we were going for a Tasting Menu lunch at Foxcroft with Caitlin and Wes. As many 'big girls' do I had carefully pre-planned what I was going to be wearing: it had to be comfortable enough to eat copious amounts …

The Inner Saboteur

Each week we have a different area to explore in our Keto Group. This week we are supposed to be aware of 'daily self-talk', you know that little voice that we hear in our heads? I like to call mine my 'Inner Saboteur'. Let's call her 'Miss S' so that I do not have to …

Just a Drop

There is a fine line between routine and monotony. One of the things I enjoy about being a consultant is that you work on different types of projects with different clients, but then again I also do not cope well with change, so that constantly challenges me. When life was 'normal' (BC or Before Covid) …

The Low Bar

When you compare yourself to others you may feel as if you are succeeding in life, but I guess that depends on who you are comparing yourself to. Sometimes the bar is pretty low so it is easy to feel superior. I had thought that South Africa was doing really well in regards to managing …
