How to prioritise love when you’re busy AF

This is a subject quite dear to my heart. With both Pete and I developing our own businesses, we’ve gone through phases of putting our relationship on the back-burner. This has been okay and even necessary at times, but whenever it’s gone on for too long, our sense of togetherness begins to take a hit.

I believe many people experience this in our day and age. We’re all busy – maxed out with never ending to-do-lists and working around the clocks. Taking our partners for granted is the easiest thing! We’re tired, and when we come home, we just want a break! But we’re deluding ourselves when we think that our relationships don’t deserve the same kind of energy and enthusiasm we present to the outside world.

Lent: The perfect opportunity to break a bad habit and start an awesome one

I’m not a religious person and I never used to do the whole Lent thing. But a few years ago, Pete and I used Lent as an excuse to bet on who could last longer without their favourite food and I lost miserably.

The year after, we decided to be kinder to each other and instead of depriving ourselves to see who would lose first, we challenged each other to commit to a daily practice that we hoped would help our relationship to deepen and grow.

I’m not going to lie to you…the challenge wasn’t easy and we almost broke up during the process. But we came out of it knowing each other better and feeling stronger as a couple.

How I Healed My Body With Higher-Quality Food

Hey You!

Unless you’re new to A Life I Choose, you probably already know that I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia when I was 27 and had a Transient Ischemic Attack when I was only 30.

My body was going downhill fast. Making it through the day was agony! I knew that if I didn’t get things under control, I wasn’t going to accomplish much in this life…if I got to live much longer, for that matter.

I became certain I was going to die young. How long could a person possibly survive a full life, when their body couldn’t repair itself? The urgency this created within me spurred me to research the condition like crazy! Continue reading “How I Healed My Body With Higher-Quality Food”

Is it really only women who want gender equality?Β 

When we were kids, we interacted with the adults around us and through them, we received a representation of how the world is. For most of us, this representation looked something like this:

Mum does most of the disciplining, the playing and housekeeping. Dad works and pays bills.
