We all undergo change, some mild and insignificant whereas others tend to be life altering. We know of common change such as the style of clothes we wear, a hairstyle, the type of music we listen to and so on. Many of us undergo change that others may not notice so quickly. Health tends to... Continue Reading →


When you breakdown life, your life, a picture will come into focus. A picture of a Rollercoaster. All human beings have moments of great height, followed by great lows. Some of the time you're moving very fast!! While other times you are moving slowly, anticipating what may come next.  I am not going to over... Continue Reading →

It’s Better To Laugh Than Cry

An excellent post! Reminding us we need to laugh at ourselves sometimes.
Even with minions 😒

Richer For Travel

They say that laughter is the best medicine.  I agree so I wanted to share a funny travel tale that always makes me laugh. Some days you just need to laugh. This short and (hopefully) sweet post is my nod to the need for a good old giggle.

I am a confessed klutz. I make tripping over fresh air into an art form. I have had numerous broken bones and even more near misses across the years.

One particular day, my sister and I were back on dry land after a blissful seven nights cruising the South Pacific.  We were heading into the terminal at Brisbane airport to board our flight(s) home. Jac was bound for Launceston.  I was bound for Gladstone. After a wonderful time away together (no kids, no husbands, no worries!) we were heading in our separate directions and back to reality.  That was the ‘cry’ part of the…

For many, the friendships in our lives have evolved with the changing times. With new technology, apps and forms of communication friendships too have changed. Rather than meeting for coffee or dinner, we can now text and "Face Time"  via a multitude of different formats. With such a heavily connected globe, friendships are more far... Continue Reading →

Chronically Content

I love reading a shared outlook on life, far to many people tend to focus on the “what ifs?” Rather than simply living in the moment, enjoying the good days.

My Medical Musings

I’m lying in bed trying to take deep breaths to cope with the excruciating pain in my glands from a “mump like” virus. I’ve been told it could take 10 days for this acute stage of the viral infection to pass. I haven’t slept for 4 nights.

I should be beside myself, miserable, moody, mortified that my body has yet again thrown something at me from out of nowhere.

Don’t get me wrong, I have been in tears with the pain. I have been concerned that I might have a bone infection given my bone disease. I may still have. More tests await later once I’ve stabilized. I’ve had moments of just praying for pain killers to kick in now…..right now!!

Despite that though I still have an overarching feeling of being “Chronically Content”

So, how on earth can I feel content, even happy, in the midst of all this?

I share methods I have adopted that help me to release negative self talk. Along with how unknowingly, I have been using certain tactics my whole life. Only realizing this a few weeks ago has shown me how I have truly been connecting the pieces longer than I thought.

No memory of the day that changed my life

My name is Michelle Munt and this is my story about surviving a brain injury and what I continue to learn about it. This is for other survivors and their loved ones, but also to raise awareness of what can happen to those in an accident. This invisible injury too often goes undiagnosed and it can be difficult to find information about it. I will talk about things that have helped me as I continue to recover and invite others to see if it works for them too.
