This week has been full. Brimming with thoughts, ideas, possibilities. Planning and decision-making for our little family. We want to change pace a little next year. Daniel wants to return to university and I want to complete my teacher training and to do so we need to find that trust in the universe - that it will all work out and it will all be ok.

It's really important to me that Daniel and I are nourished as individuals so that we can be the best we can be for each other. Because we were individuals before we became a couple. And we were a couple before we became a family.

I want to know that we can let go a little, of the norm, and really embrace the possibility of change.

In saying that, we can't change the nature of our beings. Daniel is a virgo, a perfectionist and deep down knows he is the hunter/gatherer. I am the dreamer, the believer, the girl who needs that dress. Ha! Slowly, though, as we really settle into a family rhythm we are beginning to realise that it's not that hard to grow our own vegies, an ocean swim can give you that wonderful sense of elation, we already have everything we need.

I know that yoga has become my life because I'm practicing the intuitive art of letting go. Surrendering to the beauty of possibility and seeing where it takes us.

Making beautiful space in our lives so we can be open to change. Knowing that the ounce of fear within me is completely normal. Learning to trust.


  1. I had to learn to let go and embrace it while taking the huge step to move my family to Australia from the states. It is exhilarating to know you have the strength to do it.

  2. I too am a yoga teacher and totally get the concept of "letting go"..."surrendering." You are so right, the universe will provide all that your family needs. I have enough stories to share of how it's been the case for me. As long as we trust in that process...that the universe will ALWAYS provide...particularly if we are following our path. Congrats on your decisions to honour who you are and what you need. It's very inspiring. xo

  3. Your wonderful words couldn't have been more perfectly timed!

  4. I do think that you constantly learn who your partner is. I know there is a lot of negotiating in our house with Glen liking things in their place and me not really thinking. Makes it interesting I think
