80:20 Rule {Intuition vs. Consistency}

“Which Chipmunk are you?” This was the question posed by Sarah Knight from the No F*cks Given podcast as I ironed a million pieces of school uniform.

Which is why {put simply} I like to be super organisedContinue reading “80:20 Rule {Intuition vs. Consistency}”

Saturday night {musings} / Body {respect}

There’s a lot going on in my mind at the moment so I’m going to write it all down. I’m not feeling well.  I’m exhausted and overwhelmed.  Unhealthy and mentally drained.  I broke down crying tonight because it was just all too much.  The kids.  The house.  The noise.  The mess.  Work.  My weight.  UnfinishedContinue reading “Saturday night {musings} / Body {respect}”

The Implementation of Inspiration {and Reassessing my Why}

I am all about inspiration. It’s something that comes quite easily to me; however, moving to the implementation stage is often a different story. It pains me to say it but I suppose you would not consider me to be much of a completer finisher. I get ideas, get totally excited and go two feetContinue reading “The Implementation of Inspiration {and Reassessing my Why}”
