Ooooh, for a few weeks now I’ve not been posting my weekly perfection busting poems with the precision of a Swiss watch 🙂  I missed a couple of dates.  And I re-posted a poem I wrote earlier on the Kind Over Matter blog.


And that most definitely was not the plan!


But lots of other stuff got in the way and before I knew it, another week passed without writing a poem.

And that got me thinking about what I want the fresh year to be. And what I want to make room and space for in the brand new year.

I’ve got lots of exciting ideas about where I wanna take this little Own Your Life space next. I’ve got lots of cool ideas for creating super hands-on and useful things to help you create a life that feels fulfilling and simply good – both on the outside and the inside.

And… I’ve got 24hrs in a day just like anybody else!

And that – of course – means that I need to make choices on how to spend those precious 24hrs a day.

And that brings me to a big decision – an oh my, what am I doing scary and can’t wait to see what happens exciting one…


I’m taking a sabbatical!


From now till September 1st, I’ll be taking a sabbatical from my (self-imposed) rhythm of writing one poem a week.

(I’m still doing my coaching/mentoring gig though – so if you need help and support to create more feel good in your life, I’m still there for you. All details are right here.)


And I’m declaring my blog my No Rules Anything Goes Playground!


From now till September 1st, I’ll be hopping on the blog on the oddest of times (no fixed timeframe, no fixed scheme!) to share whatever feels inspiring to share in that moment. A quote I bumped into. A musing. A video that got me all goosebumped. The occassional poem that popped up. Or just a picture of what I’m up to. Or maybe … who knows what might pop up?

I don’t know what the blog will look like. I don’t know where the blog will take me.

And exactly that feels so exciting. The freedom to just have fun with it, regardless of the outcome. The freedom to just play with it, without a bigger plan or a pre-planned result I’m aiming at. But just doing whatever feels right in that moment.

Last week, I wrote a little something that sums up what I want 2014 to be.  And a No Rules Anything Goes blog seems like a perfect start!




No rules.

Playful trust.

Frivolous ease.

Gutsy me.

(Always fresh beginnings.)


Is there a portion of your life that you could declare your playground too?

The way you dress? The things you cook up in the kitchen? That project you’ve embarked on?

Take the plunge and declare it your playground to.   With playful trust.  Frivolous ease.  No rules.  Just gutsy you.  And an abundance of fresh beginnings.

Here’s to exciting, playful, life-changing times!

Big hugs,
