When everything’s wrong, you make it right.

Coming home after a long stressful day to an empty home isn’t what most of us would fancy. I would personally favour coming home to my kids’ laughter – or cries when it is cranky time, a pet or maybe even a cactus. Having someone to love, spoil and depend on you is a different ball game altogether- except cats perhaps; we all know how much they want to take over the world.


Soak up nature

Being out in the field as a kid has always thought me about life and all it has to offer. Occasionally I wish we could all go back to the days we’d have bruises from gliding down a slide or falling off a spring rider. Life was so much easier then, the bruises heal and we get back on our feet as soon as we see what the climber or see saw has to offer. If only we had that attitude as an adult, disappointments would at no time bring us down.

Being an adult doesn’t mean the excitement has faded away.

Maturity is just a term lacklustre people use to describe me. So let your inner child out, you might amaze yourself with just how much you’ve missed being a kid again.


Ripple me not

DSC_0017I know what you’re going through bro!

That’s the first thing we hear people say when we tell them how bad our day was. I’ve always wondered how you could possibly know.   Maybe you’ve experience the same situation as me yes but you sure as heck don’t know what I’m going through because oh wait you’re not me!

But how am I supposed to respond to a sticky situation? Should I just sit around and wait for it to be over? Should I be ignoring it?


Should I be working my way through it? What if that wasn’t all that was coming my way? What if there was a second wave, or a third or a RIPPLE effect? A ripple that will bring waves of dilemmas and stressors into my oh so perfect Barbie and Ken life.Don’t fret because life isn’t always going to be a ripple. If you look at it real close you come to realize this ripple emanates from a sole source. DSC_0027One that can be controlled or displaced if needed. One that you have complete authority over anytime you decide it needs to be done with. So take charge of your life while you can. Choose to take a fishing trip on a wobbly boat or a wonderful cruise on a steady ship. Nonetheless, we don’t want be on a voyage all year long now do we? After all constant stillness in the water seems a wee bit too boring for most of us doesn’t it?
