Now what if you removed as much stimulation of your senses as possible – like sitting alone, closing the … Continue reading What’s your super-power?
Hardships make us grow in compassion. When we experience difficult times, we come out of them with greater compassion for others. I was raised in a home where we didn’t take our life for granted. Family in Lebanon were living underground due to war. We would exchange videos via VHS and I would watch in awe at how happy everyone … Continue reading Hardships make us grow in compassion

A few months ago, we started our kids on Taekwondo lessons. My son wasn’t overly keen, but obliged. After a couple weeks, he started complaining and said he no longer wanted to go. He said that Taekwondo lessons were his least favourite thing to do in the entire week (probably because it required the most discipline!). He was pretty firm … Continue reading It’s Growing on me, mum

I felt this lightness in my body that I haven’t felt in a long time. I realised that this overwhelming feeling I was experiencing was FUN! I can … Continue reading Having fun in the day to day…

Podcasts or audio books to stimulate us while commuting or cooking. Phone calls or text messages to catch up with friends when we have some space in our day.
