Welcome to our life change journey

Hi ! Let us introduce oursleves ~ Donna 'mama', Genaveve 4, and Summer-Rain 2, 'Dovein'. This is the story of our lives and where it is taking us now. The 'now' (the change) is what is exciting and limitless in possibilities.
The purpose of this journey and the reasons why it is transpiring, I believe, will be aligned with many other people who may often feel like, just, 'surviving' another day in the chaos of the world rather than 'inspirationally' living it.
Experiment ~ Living in a 3 bedroom rental home @ $380 per week with too much stuff, a back yard without shade and lawns to mow, domestics galore and bills I cannot keep up with, VS; Travelling around 'Australia' in a 'Toyota Hiace Commuter Van', (fitted as a campervan), a wished for, sponsored, 'Camper Trailer' (DONE~ Ok, not sponsored but universally provided at a great price) , and our lives consolidated into several 15 litre containers !

Surgical Insights !

Wow ! I had 'no idea' what kind of surgery I was up for ~ 3hrs on an inner ear, cut from the outer ear ~ 'ouch' and even more 'ouee' (as Summer describes pain) as I recover  ! Today is Sunday ~ day 3 after surgery and still as sore as it is, has been an incredibly enlightening and life changing process. The lack of compassion I received from some of the nursing staff, my drugged out visions and the pain experienced have opened my eyes to connecting with the power we truly have over what we do to our bodies as our vehicles to life, and a depth in my own compassion that I have never seen before.

I feel blessed to be alive, the mother to my magnificent girls and who I am to everyone I know. I am overwhelmed with joy at the possibilities life holds and know that on every down there is always an up, an awesome insight, lesson or strength to be gained.


  1. I learn this lesson every day with my boat. ;)
    O daiji ni, Donna.

  2. Hello there Donna,
    So sorry to hear of your recent surgery. From my experience of having had 13 operations, it is always so traumatic for your body, but yet, can be really enlightening to the spirit...if we take notice. Hang in there, be good to your self and please know that I am sending you much love and healing light!
