What if we chose kindness?
In life, we are bound to clash with some people. Sometimes personalities just repel.
But why is it that some people make waves against those that they clash with? When mistakes are made by another, we take it and run with it by sharing negative thoughts about that person to others. Sure, maybe they made a mistake, but chances are, they had good intentions, and it was an accidental oversight. I have seen this a million times. I have also been guilty of this myself in previous jobs (certainly not proud of it, but transparency is important). But what if we chose kindness instead?
What if, instead of running them down, we choose to be understanding. Let them know that even though they have made a mistake, its ok, because we all make mistakes sometimes. Better still, be supportive (because chances are, they feel shitty enough in themselves for their mistakes made). Imagine how much better all those female dominated industries would be. Work environments would be far less toxic. There would be so much more workplace satisfaction.
Wouldn't the world be a much better place?! #dog#doggo#dogsofinstagram#petsofinstagram#choosekindness#support#understanding#photography#petphotographer#petphotography#griffithnsw#cowransw#canon#canonphotography#nurse#nursing#maketheworldabetterplace
Two words that just don't go together😂😭😂😭 Last night our toddler was up at 1:30..... until around 4, I think. The first time I heard him cry, I lay in bed, pretending to still be asleep, hoping on hope that my husby would get up to him. My body just felt so heavy. I felt so warm, and tired, and just flat out didn't want to get up. My husby got up and attended to him, returning to bed a short time later. Weee man was not actually asleep it seemed, as he squawked away in his room. I thought 'shit, id better get up this time'. 20 minutes of trying to settle him later, I thought 'bugger it, he can settle himself'. His nappy was fine. He didn't want a drink, and he was perfectly settled until I walked out of his room. I returned to bed, because I just didn't want to be up any longer. Sounds selfish I know. And there are probably some mums reading this judging me for doing this. We are not believers in the 'cry it out' method as such, but after almost 2 years, I just don't want to get up for more than 20 minutes anymore. Not that our small boy gave a hoot about what I wanted. He continued to squawke away. Husby got up again....for about 2 hours nursing him before returning to bed.
For those of you thinking ' the man did what! for how long! amazing!', I can assure you, none of this is lost on me. He is a very hands on dad, and I am forever greatful for this! Said man also works 5 days a week. I work 2 days a week. I see the same imbalance here that you do. Anyway, today, I feel bad about it. And its not the first time this has happened this way either. Best get my shit together today and have dinner organised for tonight (which I don't usually cook), because I feel as disappointed in myself as a dog who has pulled the washing off the line😅🐾🐾👶👨🦰👩🦰 #mum#motherhood#parenthood#motherhoodunplugged#motherlandaustralia#dog#dogsofinstagram#petsofinstagram#cattledog#cattledogsofinstagram#griffithnsw#cowransw#griffithpetphotographer#cowrapetphotographer#dogsofoz#dogsofaustralia#photography#photographer#petphotographer

Let’s talk...MINDFULNESS 🧘🏾♂️🧘🧘🏻♀️ In this crazy unpredictable world we simply must ensure children have the opportunities to engage in stillness, moments of calm and connectedness.
Research has proven that mindfulness is good for adults but did you know it’s findings have also proven how amazing it is for our kids.
There is an emerging body of research that indicates how mindfulness can help children improve their abilities to pay attention, to calm down when they are upset and to make better decisions.
Children of all ages can benefit from mindfulness, the simple practice of bringing a gentle and calm attitude to the present moment. 🧘🏿 Our Yogi Dice game provides children with visual cues for how to pose in many age appropriate yoga positions, while engaging in deep breathing and the art of mindfulness.
Our cafe reopens tomorrow (with strict social distancing guidelines in place of course) with a great range of snacks and light meals available as well as delicious barista made coffee.
Everything is available for dine-in (maximum 10 people) or takeaway and we're open from 12pm - 4:30pm.
Thanks Jillian for your lovely review this weekend!
I have just arrived home from a lovely weekend well spent at The Shearing Shed, Cowra. The bed was so comfortable and the room very warm and cosy with the fire going all day and night, all thanks to the considerate owners Chris and Viv having us well equipped with kindling and surplus amounts of firewood.
The heated floor tiles in the bathroom made it so much easier to get up in the morning and the pressure of the rain shower was heavenly.
Breakfast was provided and a lot of coffee pods to make a good strong coffee in the machine.
What we really enjoyed was the surrounding farm land and the quaint and unique accomodation that is so Australian. So many great lanes to go for a good country stroll too.
Thank you so much! We will be back!
In February (a few months ago), I resigned from the nursing job I had been in since I was a grad nurse. An opportunity arose to work in a clinical nursing role that would provide better hours and more flexibility. In truth, the job opportunity actually came about 6 months earlier (before I returned to my old job from maternity leave), but at the time I didn't have the courage to leave the job I was in (a permanent job, with a lot of annual leave and sick leave hours built up. Total job security). As my maternity leave was coming to an end last year, I had a lot of reservations about going back to that job, for a lot of reasons. But after much discussion with my partner, we decided it best to 'see how it goes'. So I returned to work in my original role. I expected it would be hard. But I never anticipated that it would be so mentally and emotionally taxing, trying to juggle being a (present) mum, and still maintaining a career. I would frequently spend my little guys daycare days at home alone, and work most weekends. Working weekends so frequently weighed so heavily on my heart. I felt like I was failing as a mum, and as a partner. I felt uninspired, unmotivated, and unsupported at work. So I knew something had to change.
Incredibly, the job opportunity that I had previously turned down, was still available. So I chose to have the courage to resign from my job, and give the new one a damn good go!
Turns out, It was the best damn decision I could have made. I am much happier, life feels much more balanced, and I feel motivated and inspired again. Learning opportunities have arisen that I never would have had otherwise. Best of all, I feel supported.
