How kind are you to yourself?

Standard

Lately I have been reading a chapter each day out of Jack Cranfield’s ‘The Success Principles’ along with Dale Carnegie’s ‘How to Win Friends and Influence People’. It is multi tasking at it’s best I think! Most interesting to me though is that while many of the topics overlap at the base of it all it seems to be the need for having the confidence to keep moving forward and a belief in yourself that you can put all the good advice they have into action.

For me this is probably the hardest part of running a business and making the most of everyday. I’m sure hat many of you reading this can relate too. After all my ‘great ideas’ occur there is often that little voice that whispers ‘ but what about ….’ and continues to list numerous reasons why I can’t follow through. While my little voice is not nearly as obnoxious or as loud as it was (thanks White Chestnut from Bach Flower Remedies for that ) it is still there. I find that getting getting out in nature each day helps quiet it too along with reminding myself of all the things I am proud of about myself. Little affirmations which I repeat to myself each day as I walk to help keep them at the forefront.

Enjoying some sunshine, nature and adventures

That little voice often knocks us down rather than builds us up and it is tireless. It doesn’t seem to give up which is why we can’t give up in building ourselves up either. Becoming mentally healthy and resilient is a daily job and hard work I know however it is also important to help have a happier and healthier life. We often endeavour to be kind to others but how kind are you to yourself on a daily basis? So, inspired by a writing prompt I thought I would share a simple exercise that you can do today. A simple exercise to help remind you just how awesome, unique and amazing you are.

Step one: Get some paper and a pen, old school I know but getting off here will help you to focus on the task rather than flicking over to another tab when procrastination calls.

Step two: Write the letters of your name down the left hand side of the page. Each letter should take up a few lines.

Step three: Create an acrostic poem from the letters of your name of all the things you are good at and/or love about yourself.

Step four: Have fun and keep your poem of all the great things about you somewhere for future reference.

My Acrositic Poem about what I love about me

If you’re anything like me it will take you a while to get into a good mindset to write anything down! This is where being off line with pen and paper can help; it will give you headspace for the good stuff to come in. The good stuff is there, honestly, it just may be a little hidden from view. at the moment. No need to be modest here or to worry about any ‘tall poppy’ syndrome as this is for you and you alone. It is a reminder to look at when that little voice gets overwhelming or just pipes up too much.

Enjoy focusing on you and all the things you love about yourself. It is an opportunity to recognize those great things about you and to be kind to yourself 🙂

Turning mindfulness into meaningfulness

Standard

On the 20 January 2022 I decided to undertake a task in mindfulness; a task to fold 1000 cranes. I had been inspired in part by a passing comment online and then by the book ‘Senbazuru’ by Michael James Wong. I was delighted to read that the author had some New Zealand ‘roots’ too which ultimately connected me even more with the concepts he was sharing. It was Michael’s beautifully sculpted and thoughtful book that truly began my journey into this mindfulness practice. Though the thought of actually putting it all into action and folding 1000 cranes was a little daunting to say the least. I wasn’t sure what the end date would be or even if I was capable of completing it within the suggested year however I began, endeavouring to fold at least five cranes each day. This way if life presented me with any ‘hiccups’ I would be ahead in my folding rather than getting further and further behind

I knew I had some washi paper in the cupboard, left over from making washi eggs many years ago, so I decided my first cranes into the world would be folded with this and be as beautiful as I could muster. To begin with I took the cranes into the world daily , leaving them places and hoping that they would be ‘adopted’ into someone’s home or at least bring a smile to someone’s face. It wasn’t long though before the mental list of places I felt I could leave my cranes began to be exhausted. Whenever we went somewhere different I took the opportunity to deposit them somewhere new. In restaurants, cafes, libraries, shops, bus stops, music gigs and even laundromats my little birds remained. As my ever increasing collection of cranes continued though the question on everyone’s lips was ‘What are you going to do with them?’

23 July 2022. Finally 1000 cranes!

It was a question that I constantly played with in my mind. What would I do with them all? The story behind the cranes had been a topic of conversation a few times during my folding journey so the fact that the 6th of August fell on a Saturday this year felt a little serendipitous. Quietly I made a decision to complete my 1000 cranes before the end of July. This way I could send the cranes in to the world on the day they were linked with in so many minds. I could gift the cranes into the world, hopefully raising some money for a peace based charity too, on the anniversary of the devastating Hiroshima bombing which in a way triggered the popularization of origami cranes internationally.

Many thanks to Kevin Jones and Warwick Halcrow of Paraparaumu Beach Saturday Market for assisting me in turning my mindfulness exercise into a more meaningful one along with answering the question in everyone’s mind. This past Saturday, 6th August, Kevin and Warwick very graciously allowed me to have a stall in their market so that I could gift my cranes to the community; hoping to spread a little joy on a winter’s day and if anyone wanted to ‘pay’ then to pass the money over to UNICEF. With a date set I began thinking of everything I would need for the day.

Thanks to my amazing daughter and her friend for creating beautiful strings of cranes

Despite the threat of rain and a cold breeze blowing, Kevin and Warwick had thought ahead and offered me a great spot, protected and under cover. After all paper cranes aren’t that hardy. Despite the occasional gust to tempt my cranes into flight they thankfully all stayed put until some generous souls came to collect them. There were in fact many generous souls that day. I found the generosity of the community immense and thoroughly heartwarming. I would like express my thanks to everyone in the Kāpiti who supported me, both in ‘adopting’ a crane and in donating money for me to pass on to UNICEF. Ultimately the later was an act of trust and faith, on the part of people, which I am grateful for.

Market Day

Getting home that afternoon we were delighted to count up $268.40 in donations, which we have now passed on to UNICEF. Just as the folding of 1000 cranes is believed to bring good fortune I know that the donations made by our amazing community will help bring a little good fortune to many children in need both in Aotearoa/New Zealand and the world. As an added bonus, later that day, it was fantastic to see one of my cranes adorning a cash register in a local store. Their daughter had gifted it to them after being at the market that morning.

Thank you so much everyone who played a part in turning mindfulness into meaningfulness.

Life Lessons for the Living

Standard

Recently I attended a couple of writing courses which have been great inspiration for writing of my book on health and well-being along with my long-suffering family history stories. Better yet though is that a little spin off group has occurred, which I was lucky enough to be invited too. Each week we share our writing and discuss our progress with the security of knowing we are among trusted friends. The other week we were given a topic to write on. It was a topic which got my brain firing and my fingers moving as I combined information about my self and well-being.

Some South Island sunshine and nature to brighten your day.

The topic was ‘What story would you tell if you only had one year to live’. I thought I would share it here too. Maybe, just maybe, there is something in it for you or those you love even if it is just some inspiration to write your own story……….

‘In my life there have been many stories that I have shared with those who matter and some with those who don’t. In fact, I can think of only one story that my children haven’t heard the full detail of.  In my mind it is the one story that would be better told by another, if at all.  In all my stories though there are themes which often repeat themselves; life lessons that are presented to me continuously.  Some have had to be presented via a proverbial ‘brick to the head’ while others have simmered away growing in strength as time goes by. So, with a year to live the story I would tell is ‘Life Lessons for the Living.’

  1. It is never too late to start

While Mum always told me I didn’t have any patience and was always in a rush to do things, both of which are true, I have not always met ‘expected time frames’ with regards to societal norms.  It maybe the quiet rebel in me that made me start driving much later than all my peers, go to university and beginning my degree at least a decade later than others and learn Spanish in my 30’s after wasting so much time at school determined not to learn French.   I finally traveled New Zealand in my 40’s; fulfilling my dream of living in a house bus.  Then at nearly 50 I started learning drums and roller-skating again, though not simultaneously.  So, whatever it is you want to start doing, be it learning, forgiving, moving or maybe just being don’t let anyone tell you it is too late. Especially not that little chatterbox in your head. Opportunities abound to support you starting your dream when you begin to look.  Thankfully, my mother passed on in unspoken deeds that there was never any age limit on life, never any limit  to what you could do or when it was possible to do it.  As Henry Ford once said ‘Whether you think you can or you think you can’t – you’re right’.

2. Trust your intuition

This is one of the most important lessons I have learnt and which I am still learning every day.  Research tells us that we actually have two ‘brains’, the brain we all know and the stomach or more accurately the digestive system.  The cells in the brain and the gut originate from the same tissues and basically decided to take two separate roads of development.  Both have the power to help govern what we do.  That churning stomach or those ‘butterflies’ may be just as informative as any thought power we give to an issue.  These two, the brain and the digestive system, are also linked with the Vargas nerve so are constantly working together with their shared neurotransmitters and hormones.  My advice, for what it is worth, is to listen closely to that little funny feeling you get or that gut reaction to events and trust it. Too often I have ignored my intuition only to have it proven correct at a later date.  Our brain rationalizes events whereas our gut instinct or intuition invariably reads the situation exactly how it is. So, trust yourself and reap the benefits. 

3. Find and follow your own path

I know, I know it’s a complete cliché but it’s true.  The importance of following your own path is beyond expression.  For much of my life I tried my hardest to adapt, mould and modify myself into what I thought others wanted.  In the end it was always in vain; you can never please people who want you to change nor those who aren’t happy with who you are.  Only in those times where I did what I truly wanted in my heart, following my intuition of course, did I feel happiest and actually attracted the feelings I had previously searched for.  Often, we change things about ourselves and our behaviour because we think we need to.  We assume that in following others’ expectations we will make them happy, achieve our goals or even be happier ourselves. In my experience though those achievements are short lived and hollow unless you feel that the whole of you is still there. We are all important and invaluable to life in our own unique way so find your ‘path’, stick to it and share your treasures with the world

4. Keep the joy in your life alive

Sometimes life can be a bitch.  We all know it and we’ve all experienced it however what we sometimes don’t realise is that ultimately, we have power to decide how life impacts us in the long term.  Whether a horrible event causes us great suffering or whether it directs us to joyous new places is up to us depending on the perspective we take.  Lessons in adaption and growth, lessons in how to find more joy can only occur when we are willing to look at life differently.   As the Archbishop Desmond Tutu says in The Book of Joy, ‘We are meant to live in joy.’ Joy can be found anywhere, at any time when we look.  An event may send us into a spin.  It may sap the joy from our day quicker than we thought possible yet in breathing deep and changing our perspective that same event may direct us to joy as we distract ourselves by going for a walk and seeing the beauty of nature. We are hard-wired to remember and focus on the negative; it is one of our oldest survival tools. In changing our perspective though we can also see and savour all those little things that bring a smile to our face, that light up our day and bring joy into our lives.

5. Invest in your health

I really wish I had learnt lesson earlier in life but as my first life lesson states ‘it is never too late to start’.  At nearly 50 years old I am now in better health and have a greater sense of well-being than I did 30 years ago.  In all honesty, it was a classic case of not listening to the advice I am now giving; I certainly didn’t listen to my intuition or my gut as I blindly skipped along the garden path of all and sundry. Overeating, overspending, oversleeping and over drinking.  Even when it didn’t really fill me with any joy, even when it ended in pain I still continued. I now realise too that health is not just the physical and if you ignore the other aspects of health such as emotional, spiritual and mental then you can become even sicker than just ignoring the physical.  I love Mason Durie’s Te Whare Tapa Whā model where he likens health to a home; the walls that protect you are Spiritual, Physical, Mental and Community well-being, which includes family, while nature is at the base of it all.  Research backs this up as a connection with nature can be a great foundation which ensures our whare or well-being is secure and stable.  I also like to add that all the tools we learn along the way act as the roof. A protective cover which helps us when the ‘bad weather’ comes.  Humans are intrinsically lazy; we will often opt for comfort and ease over effort.  It is easy to make an excuse not to exercise, not to contact a friend, not to meditate, not to expand our horizons. I know I have done it many times! However, that little bit of effort to take action, to make the unfamiliar familiar will reap more rewards than you can imagine. Creating connections, moving our body, stimulating our mind and being in nature will always leave us feeling happier and healthier.

So, with a year to live this is the story I would tell.  A story about the lessons I have learnt. A story of life lessons for the living.

Hello there!

Standard

Well it has been a while since I was on here that is for sure. I can’t believe that almost a year has passed since I last wrote! I figured it was time to touch base quickly and let you all know what is happening in this part of the world.

Life has been a bit all over the place with work I have to say. I have been majorly re-evaluating everything and trying to decide the best way forward; both for the business and life. This blog was obviously one thing that slipped and some of you who are subscribed to my newsletter may have noticed that I have not sent any out for a while – or maybe not :). Things were just beginning to feel a bit forced and creating content wasn’t really bringing me joy anymore. It was beginning to feel more and more like a challenge and one that I didn’t see the point in. Letting go of posting blogs and sending newsletters, along with the guilt I felt at first, was the start of wee changes with regards to my business and my mindset.

Enjoying some time out in nature with the dogs

So many of my endeavours have begun with me projecting in the future, out into the ether rather than focusing on the here and now. The newsletter in particular was one of those; I began it hoping that it would reach millions, sky-rocketing my business into an online success, never mind that I didn’t really have an online business to match. I also began it because I felt I had to and that it was expected of me but that gets exhausting after a while. It felt like it was time to give myself a break. Coming to that realization has been liberating and challenging in equal measure. I want to share the knowledge I have because I really believe it can help others and make a positive difference to their lives, I’m just not 100% sure how most days. Is putting energy into online content better or those face to face interactions?

So many ‘signs’ and ‘messages’ have come to me lately, from many different places, about being in the present moment and doing things because they feel right that I figure it may be time to listen. So, I’m trying to live a bit more in the now rather than my usual racing into what may come. I’m taking some time out, re-evaluating life in general and making some space. I am also working on doing things because they feel right and are life affirming rather than because they are expected or that they may bring me validation in some way. Everyone likes being validated I know and I’m no different but I could feel that what began in my head as something good to do for others quickly turned into something that may bring me validation or praise. This was even before I had put the project into practice.

I have still been teaching at the local Woman’s Centre which I always love and also , taking some time to cultivate a few skills. I have been working on connecting more with people despite my natural introvert tendencies, listening more and talking less. In my bid to do stay in the moment with positive action I have been giving away some of the print versions of my books to people I have worked with. It has felt good hearing the need and then gifting the books to people who will use them. The extra space on my bookshelf is very nice too. In doing so though it also highlighted some errors that were in the text, missed edits that needed rectifying. So I have begun updating my e-books which I created so long ago to ensure that the best copy of them is available online. It has been its own validation of sorts as I read the words over and realize that I wouldn’t change the content even 7 years later.

It has also made me see that the time has come to combine all this knowledge, in my e-books and in my head, into one. I can see that reflexology was a little ‘light’ on the ground in those earlier e-books due to my feelings of not being good enough so now it is time to add it in. Combining all my e-books and some extra information which I teach on my ‘Balancing Life’ course is my mission at the moment work wise, that and having my regular reflexology clients. It is a slow start and I’m yet to make a deadline for myself however everyday I am carving a little space for it. Wish me luck and hopefully I’ll be posting about its release before the year is out!

Vegan Ginger-Nut Bites

Standard

Wow …. the final week of my Baby Reflexology course tomorrow and the final week of baking for all those wonderful mamas.  It has been amazing being able to teach this through the Kāpiti Women’s centre over the past 6 weeks and great to use reflexology and my course material. The group has been a great; with some awesome connections and conversations happening. I honestly don’t think I will ever get fed up with running courses for Mama’s and bubs! 

The weather over the last few weeks here has been wet and stormy, a reminder that winter is really here I guess. So I thought I would warm the insides of everyone this week with some good old ginger-nuts.  This recipe is delicious, easy and able to be eaten raw or cooked so win/win all round I say.  With only four ingredients it is a good example that sometimes more is less too 🙂 The original recipe says that it makes 8 biscuits however we usually get at least 16 and sometimes 20 out of it so obviously it is all about size.  I tend to double up the recipe to get a decent batch and because themselves love these yummy morsels it also means I have a chance to get some too!  The fact that they don’t expand on cooking does mean that you can pack them pretty close together on your tray which I love because it means just one tray of yum.

Vegan Ginger-Nut Bites

1 C ground almonds

2 tsp ground ginger

1/2 Tb black strap molasses

3 Tb maple syrup

  • Mix the almonds and ginger
  • Add the molasses and maple syrup then mix until the mixture forms a dough
  • Roll into small balls and place on tray
  • Flatten each ball with a fork (you may need to dip the fork in rice flour or ground almonds so it doesn’t stick)
  • Bake for 10-15 mins at 180C or until the bottoms start to brown.
  • Cool on the rack before devouring

Hope this finds you warm, happy and content regardless of the weather outside.

Best vegan & GF brownie

Standard

Becoming Healthy

Well it has been a very long time since I have been on here. Life just seems to have ticked along and without any Infant Massage course mamas to nourish I haven’t really been doing that much baking.

Checking out the Manawatu over the long weekend here in NZ

It is the first time I have had lots of allergies in the class so my planned chocolate cookies were out and I needed to find a good alternative. Start the internet search for something just as chocolatey! Thankfully Loving it Vegan came to the rescue with their awesome Vegan Gluten Free Brownie recipe

I have to say that this is the best brownie I have had in a long time – both before and after becoming vegan. Even the non-vegans in and around the house were fighting to get a piece of this delicious stuff 😉 While it is vegan…

Vegan Comfort Cookies

Standard

Every Baby Reflexology or Infant Massage course I bake up some goodies for the mama’s to munch on and invariably chocolate chip cookies are on the menu. I confess I have a major sweet tooth … one that is uncontrollable at times …. however since becoming a vegan it often means I just watch others enjoy good cookie.

Finally some cookies we can enjoy without having to buy them

I have tried some recipes that I have found online (like this vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe I tried a couple of years ago) but many of them involve weird and wonderful ingredients or lots of prep. So after much thought I have created a recipe to put things right in the world … for these vegans anyway 🙂 This one is fairly minimal prep, uses things I have in the cupboard and is gluten free and sugar free (depending on the chocolate you use). Both the vegans in the house think they are delicious. The non-vegan have other thoughts, probably due to them being a softer chewy biscuit than the regualar crunch, so maybe worth trying before you go offering them at your next afternoon tea!

It does involve a bit of time in prep but not a huge amount; the soaking of the dates, preparing the chia seeds and the chopping of chocolate and the main ones. I have tried the recipe now with three different types of vegan chocolate all with similar results. I used eating chocolate, both sugar laden and sugar free, though with the sugar free one I had a slight after taste from the stevia sweeter. Himself actually preferred these so I guess it is just personal preference. I see that Sweet William has a baking chocolate, sugar laden, which may give an even better results if I was able to source it here.

So here it is for you to try at home. I’d love to hear your feedback, especially if you have ways of improving them 🙂

Vegan Comfort Cookies

1 1/8 C Gluten Free Flour (I use Edmonds)

1/2 tsp Baking Soda

1/2 C Coconut oil

2 TB chia seeds

2 TB boiling water

1/2 C dates

1/4 C boiling water

1 tsp vanilla essence

3/4 C chocolate bits (for sugar free I use Sweet William or Loving Earth, or for minimum sugar I use Whittakers Dark Ghana)

  • Preheat the oven to 200C
  • Prepare a date paste with the 1/2 C dates and 1/4 boiling water. Combine & leave to sit for a bit before mashing together
  • Prepare a vegan egg using the chia seeds and 2 Tbs boiling water mixed together
  • Melt the coconut oil
  • Blend oil, chia seeds, dates and vanilla essences together until completely blended.
  • Add the flour and baking soda
  • Add in the chocolate bits
  • Create small balls and place on the baking tray. Flatten a little with a fork
  • Bake for 10 mins and then leave to cool completely on a cooling rack.
  • ENJOY!!

Hope this finds you happy, healthy, warm and dry!

Frozen Vegan Fudge Ice Cream

Standard

With my newsletter due out in the next few weeks it always makes me realise just how little I have been on here! It makes sharing the blog post on my newsletter a little tricky so I thought I’d better rectify things 🙂 In my defense we have been away in the bus while herself was on the Spirit of Adventure, I’ve been busy with more reflexology clients as well as teaching and aside from that we have been having Sundays completely off screens and internet as a family. As Sunday is usually the day I write my blog I often forget about blogging until mid week, when I’m working, which then means I just don’t get on here.

The Spirit of Adventure coming back into Auckland

While I do have a vegan chocolate chip cookie I’m working on for next week’s blog I thought it was a good chance to share another recipe we have been enjoying. I found this quick and easy recipe for Coconut fudge in an Australian Women’s Weekly recipe book that was in sight as I waited at the checkout. Due to it’s adaptability it has been a winner for us, especially with the few good days that Summer and Spring offered us. Themselves think it tastes like hard ice cream despite it being called fudge in the recipe. Hence our slight name change 🙂

The original recipe had tahini in it however themselves weren’t that impressed with that so we have tried a few alternatives. Substituting in almond butter, all nut butter and peanut butter have all been successful here though I have to say that the batch I made with almond butter and golden syrup (because I had run out of maple syrup) was the favourite so far and the fastest to disappear. We have been cutting it into small blocks and eating like that straight from the freezer however you can also leave it out for bit to soften. I used black tahini (which produced the grey ones you can see in the photo) but equally yum with the usual tahini …. and probably a more appealing colour 🙂 Ultimately though it is a great recipe to play around with and create your own wee frozen treats.

Straight out of the Freezer

We just create half batches at a time so that is the recipe I have shared with you. I used a loaf tin with some baking paper as a liner; to make it easier to get out and slice once it is frozen. As you can see you can also jazz it up a little by sprinkling some sesame seeds to top before you freeze it. So without further prattle here is the recipe for you to play with ……

Frozen Vegan Fudge

1/2 Cup coconut cream

1/4 Cup Nut butter or Tahini

1 Tbs Maple syrup or Golden syrup if you want it sweeter

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1 Tbs Coconut oil

Pinch of sea salt

  • Blend all the ingredients in a mini blender/kitchen whizz until smooth
  • Pour into a lined loaf tin
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds if you wish
  • Freeze for at least 2 hours
  • Remove and slice ready to eat.
  • Enjoy 🙂

Hope this finds you happy, healthy and enjoy life in whatever shape it is taking.

Active April

Standard

Daylight savings has ended here in NZ and the colder mornings have begun. Thankfully though after a rainy and mixed bag of weather over Easter the sun is shining again to help me ease into the day. Getting out in nature each morning while I walk the dog is one of the things I love to do and one of the things that really helps me to feel balanced and on top of things for the day.

Making the most of the blue and green effect to positively impact our health is easier than you think. Check out these ideas for getting Active in April and just move them into nature ….. or move nature into your space a bit more 🙂

Hope this finds you happy, healthy and enjoying the life you have.

Alternative Vegan shortbread (Paleo too)

Standard

Time to get baking again! I’m planning a baby reflexology course next term and on the outlook for some new recipes. So when this little gem came into my inbox courtesy of The Minimalist Baker I had to give it a whirl; an alterative to vegan shortbread which is also grain free! While we didn’t do the whole shebang of making s’mores like they did we did indulge in the shortbread recipe and we’re loving it! Even the diary eaters among us are saying it is good and asking for more 🙂

Fresh out of the oven … with a few bits already sampled.

I haven’t bothered to change anything in the recipe; didn’t need to! It is already a one pot wonder and it is already super quick and easy. The only thing I think I would do next time is just cut it into squares and bake like that rather than worrying about cookie cutters. In saying that though it does look pretty in different shapes and it stays together much better than the other vegan shortbread recipe when using a cutter.

Below is the recipe as I created it and the tips I used however if you want to make some s’mores out of them – by adding a caramel and chocolate layer – than check out the original recipe here. I have to confess that the way she spelt her s’mores was what got me to open the link, due to confusion, and explore!

Vegan, Grain Free Shortbread

  • 1 1/4 cup of ground almonds (almond meal)
  • 2 Tbs coconut oil
  • 2Tbs maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/4 tsp salt

-Melt the coconut oil. Once melted add in the maple syrup and vanilla essence.

-Add in the ground almond and salt and combine fully.

-Form the dough into a ball and then place in between two sheets of baking paper.

-Keeping the dough between the baking paper; roll into a rectangle shape a few mm thick depending how crunchy you like your shortbread. If you do this on the baking tray you can save yourself a job of transferring the dough 🙂

-Place in the fridge for at least 15 mins to chill.

-Remove the top sheet of baking paper and cut, gently, into squares

-Bake in a preheated oven, at 160 Celsius, for 7-10 mins or until the edges are golden. I went for 8 mins which was just right.

-Cool and enjoy

Hope this finds you healthy, happy and loving the life you have.
