Courage to take in the Beauty

This morning I’m sitting looking out over a beautiful lake. The sun is glistening off the newly formed ice. The ice has taken the past three days to encase the water of the lake. Each day I have marvelled at Mother Nature’s ice building skill as I watched the lake form into this solid sheet […]

100 years

I recently received a request from a friend, whose aunt is turning 100, too, if possible, send a birthday card. 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.

Books, Books, More Books Please!

Funny little story … when I was a little girl I loved to read. I had these wonderful storybooks called big little books. I still have them all these years later.  Then I went to school and my love of reading left me. It got sucked right out of me. At school we had to […]

“Everybody is a Genius.”

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree. It will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. -Albert Einstein I came across this quote and it stuck with me. Words are such powerful weapons and whether they’re wheeled with malice or not they can […]

Deep Breath, See the Beauty!

This morning I looked out the front door and saw snowflakes falling lazily in the sunlight. My first reaction was … ugh snow but then I took a deep breath in and stood and watched the beautiful little crystal shapes playing in the wind while dancing in the sun. My next thought was … how […]

Where do I fit?

Do you ever contemplate this question? I do. Typically it comes up when I’m battling my ego. I’ve spent most of my life wanting to fit in with whom I perceived as the “in crowd”. I’m not sure if they were the in-crowd but through my lens, everyone liked them and wanted to be around […]


Do you ever have words that float through your mind? I do. It happens quite frequently actually. It’s the words that waft through that are the ones of particular interest to me as these are the ones that are coming from my inner knowing, my inner self. You may have experienced them as words, a […]
