Listen to Your Heart

I came across a quote the other day that I would like to share. “Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.” – Roy T. Bennett If you have read many of my blogs you know that I talk a lot about listening to your inner […]

Inner Action from Interaction

I don’t know about you but one of my greatest joys is having a juicy conversation. I find when I get into these conversations that let ideas explode out and we can explore them with others my energy level goes through the roof. I feel like I’m on top of the world. However, the opposite […]

Is a Box just a Box?

There are many types of boxes in the world. There are cardboard boxes, wooden boxes, and the boxes we put ourselves in and others put us in. All of these types of boxes impact our lives. They can be heavy or weigh heavily on us. Do some boxes do both? I’d like to explore this […]

Are you Hiding in Your Calendar?

That’s a curious question. Are you hiding in your calendar? Do you have a calendar that is jammed packed and you never get around to everything so you keep moving things and moving them? Do you use the phrase a lot … I’m so busy I couldn’t possibly do that, or I’m so busy I […]

Due to COVID, the original grand party they had planned could not go forward so they wanted to be creative in another way to honour the occasion. This struck me on two levels. First wow, […]

Why Do We Second Guess Ourselves?

Have you ever been doing something and think “oh my gosh did I do that right?” This happens to me. It used to be quite paralyzing. I would make myself crazy with the mental gymnastics of trying to figure out the exact right steps, the right words, the right whatever. What I have learned is […]

Where do you feel the call of Home?

This question came to me this morning as I journal and I’m sitting gazing out at trees dancing in the wind as they are being coated with snow. It is beautiful to watch as I sit in front of the warm fireplace. The other thing I’m surrounded by is the rock of the great Canadian […]

You are Mighty

“You are mighty and magnificent beyond measure, grasshopper. You are meant to blossom into the fullest expression of your unique badassery.” Jen Sincero I quite like this quote as it hits home for me at the moment. Have you ever been going along and felt like you are holding yourself back? Have you ever been […]
