I’m a free bird and I’m gonna fly, To the balcony – watch the clouds roll by. Do a One-Mile-Walk till my heart feels light, Enjoy this wonderful aloneness, grateful that my family is alright. I’m a free bird and I’m gonna fly, To the balcony, with my hot cup of chai. Here’s a HeartContinue reading “Gonna Fly”
There’s always a way when the going gets tough, Unless it’s not working out and you’ve tried enough. Always a way to make time for quiet, So you have resources to use when you can’t see the light. Many ways to push through, or hang on when there’s trouble, If you’re willing to bend whenContinue reading “There’s Always A Way”
If there’s too much to clean, just throw it all out. When you have cabin fever, just get out of the house! Cook simple and easy everyday, You can go out for something different once in a way. Do the chores badly if your kids won’t help, They’ll learn it’s better if they do itContinue reading “How to be a relaxed housekeeper”
This is my story and the story of many young couples today. It’s about a journey to work-life balance….
9 to 5 equals 7 to 7,
On days that are busy, they’re home after eleven.
Stand up and fight for what is right, With words imperfect, but a heart that’s alright. Be the flame that sheds light – alive and strong, When society wants a display of money, or when you see something wrong.
A home that’s relaxed needs organisation and routine, Things bought in advance, and no last minute cooking. But there’s just one thing that used to cause me stress, Paperwork and clearing my inbox, something I’d rather attend to a lot less.
It brings me such joy to have less stuff, To have less storage and feel it’s enough. To have time to go out, feel the wind in my face, And come home and sit in my favorite place.
We must take a turn when the path is blocked,
And explore the lanes we usually do not.
For the path that’s familiar might lead us away,
From roads we must travel to help us find our place.
Freedom is the right to express my opinion,
That’s tied to a duty to have respect for your feelings.
Freedom is the quiet that sings thought the noise,
And the happiness I feel when I hear your voice.
