“Everything is figure-outable” Marie Forleo

Love my time on Unite and Inspire!!

Unite-and-Inspire

This sweet and inspiring video by Marie Forleo is a great watch to start your day off on a positive note. Marie has a successful multi -million dollar life coaching business, was invited by Richard Branson to South Africa to help mentor young entrepreneurs and most recently did a session on  Oprah’s super soul Sunday to share a magical mantra to help you get through life!

She talks about how her marriage was on the brink of failure because she struggled to get the work/life balance. She admits she and her husband had not been on a holiday in the 7 years they were together because she was so tied up with work. She finally decides to treat them both to a holiday-however before they even get on the plane they have a nightmare sequence of events!

Watch this clip to find out how she learnt that everything in life…

Get Your Hands Involved!

Always an adventure in the Mellix household!

Mellix Life

I’ve had it! Seriously, this is just ridiculous. I don’t understand how hard it is to pee in the toilet. I mean the hole is HUGE! Just aim for the water…At this point can we just get it on the seat?

Why & how are we at the point where it smells like a gas station bathroom in the back woods?

I wouldn’t call myself a perfectionist. I used to though. It really bothered me if everything wasn’t just right. I’d feel anxious if the house wasn’t clean, the girls’ toys weren’t put away,  or dirty dishes were left in the sink. I’d be hard on myself if I didn’t cook amazing meals every night or if I didn’t exercise enough that week.

I thought I had to be the perfect mom, wife, daughter, friend, cook, gardener, and housekeeper — all the time. It was exhausting. I wasted a lot of energy striving for unrealistic goals and self-imposed high expectations.

I’ve learned to let go. To be gentle and not criticize myself when things don’t go the way I planned. Give myself a break when I don’t accomplish what I set out to do that day. Let myself indulge on deliciously rich foods. Say no when my schedule is too hectic.

This is Tales From the Cabbage Patch!

Tales from the Cabbage Patch

Today I am grateful that Xpresspost (Canada Post’s supposedly fast, cost-effective service with tracking and on-time guarantees) finally got it right. Late, to be sure, but right in the end. This is one of those stories that my father surely would have told about one of his friends had it happened to them so I am confident that I would have his approval to share this story with you.

As many of you are aware from my previous posts ‘About the Cabbage Patch‘ and ‘L is for

Fiddlin' Jim 001 Fiddlin’ Jim

Laughter‘, my father was a paranoid schizophrenic and an alcoholic. When he was compliant with his medications, he was a happy fella who loved to play the fiddle, tell stories, a few jokes and the odd outlandish tale. He had the greatest laugh to go along with all those jokes and stories. In his heart of hearts, he was your typical…

My MS Story

Read Jen’s MS story at Tripping Through Treacle!

Tripping Through Treacle

So, I was a normal 13 year old girl, attending school, making new friends following an across the sea move from Canada and basically just getting on with being a teenager.

When I couldn’t see the basketball hoop at school, I had no idea that this was the start of something really scary, life changing in fact. I just thought that I needed glasses – what other reason would there be for the hoop to look fuzzy? I must have mentioned this to my parents – cue LOADS of different tests, including one where I was able to miss school (yes!) and have electrode type things put all over my head whilst, I am guessing, the doctors looked to see what my brain was doing. I still remember sitting in the car on my way home from that appointment, picking away at the glue like stuff stuck in my hair…
