Episode 2: How To Have The Best Day Ever


😂💖 How To Have The Best Day EVER 💖😂

In this episode, I share what got me out of the dark hole that I was in a few years ago and the things that I do to make sure that I have the best day possible.

I discovered that if I start my day doing things I don’t enjoy such as housework, screaming at kids, emptying the dishwasher, doing the laundry and that kind of thing, then I find that by the time I go to bed, all I’ve done is…

Housework, scream at kids, empty the dishwasher, do the laundry and that kind of thing.

It’s weird.

I felt that I probably ought to try something different to see if my whole experience of life was different, but that’s easier said than done, right? After all, when you’ve got kids, the moment your foot hits the floor in the morning, someone wants you to do stuff for them and you’re off and running at the speed of light.

Menopause, Marriage and Motherhood

I found it relentless. I felt like my whole entire life consisted of boring, mundane, meaningless crap.

So, I moaned about it for a while (okay, several years) and then I decided to try a few different things.

This is what works for me:

  • How to use affirmations to regain self-esteem ⁠& rediscover your purpose⁠
  • How to incorporate your passions into your everyday life
  • How to create a daily routine tailored for you⁠
  • The importance of putting yourself first even when you’ve got kids⁠
  • Which apps, books, tools and people I use to help me have the best day ever.⁠⁠

Listen NOW!

I found it relentless. I felt like my whole entire life consisted of boring, mundane, meaningless crap.

Changing the dialogue around menopause and midlife.

As a Podcaster I create a safe space and community for the stuff of Midlife. I provide more than a hub of information I am changing the dialogue around menopause and midlife for women with fun, love and laughter.

After (hopefully, successfully!) raising four kids, being married for 30 years, going from regular month-to-month pay cheque jobs to creating a multi-million dollar property development business (and a number of other businesses with varying degrees of success and failure), to going broke and starting again…

…there’s a heap of experiences and life lessons just waiting to be shared.

Life is about learning from our mistakes and the heartaches we might encounter, but it’s also about having fun and making sure we’re surrounded by laughter…

Which is what you’ll find here in the podcasts & blogs: the highs and lows, successes and failures, sprinkled with fun, love and laughter, because it makes life just so much brighter.

This is all about sharing those things rather than keeping them to ourselves, listening to “ordinary” women’s stories and relating to them, finding common ground and inspiration.
