The Elixir

Once we open ourselves up to opportunities, often the experiences come flying at us quickly and that is what seems to be happening with me since I decided to start venturing out of my cave. Last weekend seemed to be non-stop but it was packed with fun. I mentioned in my last post that we …

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 …

The Unconscious Consciousness

I've been overthinking again. After all, it is one of my superpowers. It usually starts when I hear a quote or a phrase that triggers introspection (aka sends me down a rabbit hole). This week the quote I heard was from Carl Jung: “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and …

Quarter Century

I often forget how old I actually am. I definitely do not feel old. However Norm and I had our 25th wedding anniversary on July 5th so obviously I am really, really old. On the evening of our actual anniversary it was a bit of a disaster. It was load shedding and we both worked …

From Miracles to Nothing Special

Last Saturday I had a text message from our friend Mark asking what time he should come and collect Finn. It was only then that I realised we had completely forgotten that we were booked to go out for another Restaurant Week dinner to Gambas Seafood Bistro. I have been craving seafood for months and …

On the Block

I finally feel like I am comfortable being around other humans again, well, as comfortable as my introverted self ever gets. It may be just plague exhaustion (yes that is a real thing) or maybe I am being overly optimistic that the virus is mostly under control, but we are starting to entertain. Last weekend …

Love Language

You know how buzz words bubble up and everyone then adopts them and becomes an expert on something they had never heard of a week ago? The term "Love Language" is something I have seen flying about for a while now. It just means that even if you may express affection to your significant other …

The Certainty of Uncertainty

One certainty about living in South Africa is that everything is often uncertain. My current project has been full of uncertainties. We have been asking for a plan with priorities and it was finally presented on Wednesday. We felt confident and charged off with our top 5 priorities. Then on Thursday the plan changed. It …

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 …

The Greek & Mythology

Today is a very special day. We collect our Finn later this afternoon. The breeder used Pets Travel, and the company has been absolutely amazing. They have set up a WhatsApp group with me, the drivers and the agent and they have been sending me updates throughout the journey. I was so excited last night …
