A Single Mother's Life


avatar.jpgWelcome to a Single Mother's Life

 Life has thrown me many curve balls, not least of which was my falling in love and then falling apart when my marriage dissolved. The heartache and pain that we all have to endure at that time is so harsh, but like many of the amazing single mothers I have interviewed over the years, I have risen, like the Phoenix from the ashes.

I am proud to be a single mother. I adore my child. She is the essence of what has propelled me to create this site: Love. There is a time for the anger and hurt to go and a time to start loving yourself and life again.

My blogs will hopefully make you laugh, feel understood, open your eyes to another way of thinking or just simply be a good read for the week. Whatever it happens to mean to you, I thank you for joining me in this journey of empowerment and life.

May yours be a great one. Together, we are Mothers Moving Forward!

With hope and best wishes for you all,


While fighting with my jammed kitchen drawer this morning, I came to the conclusion that I am a kitchen item hoarder. It’s not intentional. It sort of crept up on me over the years.I don’t keep things because I can’t bear to get rid of them. I just keep putting more things on top of the old things and before you know it, I can’t close (or open) my utensil drawer anymore. When did this all happen? read more
Have you ever wondered how many hats one person can wear in a day? 500 to be exact, or so says Dr Seuss in ‘The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins’. It’s about a peasant boy who has a simple hat on his head, and when the King passes, he’s expected to remove his hat, but no matter how he tries, there’s always another one in its place. The taking on and off of hats never seems to end. Sound familiar? read more
This week, Karise Eden won The Voice, Australia. But she did far more than just win a competition. She also won the hearts of women everywhere. Why? Because even though she’s only 19, she showed us how essential it is to be true to ourselves and move towards our dreams... read more
Yesterday I fixed the toilet seat. I know, it’s not a big deal to most people, but to me it was a major milestone. I have always had an aversion to fixing things. Maybe it’s because I was brought up in a household that ... read more
Ever had one of those days where nothing goes right, where you just want to go back to bed and start again? I had one of those today, but thankfully I worked out how to stop the roll and move forward... read more
One of Australia's most vigilant Guardian Angels passed away this week. Barbara Holborow was known as the 'Children's Champion', a powerful advocate for children's rights. She was 2012 NSW Senior Australian of the Year and...yes, a single mother. We all have much we can learn from her approach. read more
A short while ago, I was fortunate enough to trade in my years of frequent flyer points and take my daughter to Hawaii. It was something I never thought possible. But careful planning of where I bought my groceries and petrol had helped me build up a substantial number of points. I had travelled before as a single mum, always without ... read more
I spent two hours on the phone the other day with a single mum friend of mine, talking about things we wanted to do, but didn’t have the courage to action. I’m not talking about sky diving or abseiling. I’m talking about the most fundamental things in life that we limit ourselves from doing out of FEAR..Know what I'm talking about?... read more
