Have you ever scrolled through social media pages and seen a couple around your age and stage, who are laughing and having fun? Then have you thought to yourself ‘that’s not what my marriage feels like anymore’. And you remember that it used to feel like a place of love and support. Where you could go to rest and recover. Where you felt completely accepted and valued. And now, well it’s not the worst, you’re doing ok. But it’s not the best?
Happy Holidays! Happy Summer for my Southern Hemisphere friends. Whew it's a hot one today. So before I head off to dip my feet into the sea, I'm checking in to link you to an article I wrote for Understanding Boys. It was published on the 22nd of December, so I'm a bit late, but I know you won't mind. It's been shared 130 times and been liked over 500. So it's a goody.
Did you know I have two young boys? I do! And I have had the pleasure of working with MyDeal.com in a collaboration piece on raising sons. You can check the piece out here:

Project Holidays requires us (likely you dear reader) to carry most of the mental load of activities such as organising/decorating the tree, photos with Santa, Christmas parties, family celebrations, present sourcing/wrapping/exchanging and a million other things (advent calendars, Elf on the Shelf, NYE party planning, School Holidays). These are all added extras on top of the normal load we carry. Wonderful extras in many cases, but certainly extra work.
Are you the kind of person who folds themselves into a smaller space to make room for other people on public transport? Or are you a person who spreads their arms and legs out to make less room for someone to sit next to you. Or, are you someone who just sits and takes up the space that you do.
Today's post is for those who don't take up their space and who want to.
