Calm Strong Kind :

My weekly diary to record how I’m doing on my  Do Less and Stay Calm goals for 2015.  A way of keeping myself accountable.


I drove for hours and hours and hours over two days this week and had one of those lightning strike mental moments.

End of term, some big changes coming in our family, exams, assignments… lots of emotions running high amongst the little kids and the young men.

‘Calm, strong and kind’ that’s what I need to be…. strong because they need a rock when their own emotions are wild, calm and kind because that’s what works.

So I made a visual to remind myself on Canva, and then found and downloaded this one below too.

Because swimming in the ocean really does help me stay sane.

The two shots below were taken last Sunday early morning when swimming at Manly with the Bold and the Beautiful swim group.

Everyone is welcome.

Have to admit that I fiddled with the colour of the photo below. But the colour is just how it FEELS to me.

Last Sunday, I saw stingrays and fiddler rays and lots of fish and even a couple of baby dusky whaler sharks – harmless.

If you ever have a question about swimming in Sydney, do ask. If you can get to the north and fancy a dip one day, get in touch and let’s go swimming together.

Here’s to staying calm in the midst of chaos. I’m very proud to report that I have done so a couple of times this week and it feels as good as losing my cool feels bad.

Take it easy
