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 […]
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 […]
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.

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 […]
I Dream, I Dream of Life
Have you stopped lately and wondered what do I truly want my life to look like? Am I living my life as the best version of myself? A few years ago my answers to those questions would be very different. To be honest even about a week ago those answers would have been different. You […]
Is courage just a word we use to describe the people we think do extremely brave things? Until recently that’s the way I viewed it. I’ve had the word courageous used in reference to myself, but I didn’t feel it fit. You see I was using the word to relate to soldiers, fire fighters, police […]
What Part Do Emotions Play
Have you ever wondered about your emotions? I have. I learned at a very early age to turn them off. You see I learned showing emotion was a weakness and we will have none of that thank you very much. Funny I joke about it now but I had a hard time figuring out what […]
Words get the Ball Rolling
The words I wrote this morning on my message board were Awareness, Choices, Action. Always listen to your inner knowing. Awareness relates to being aware of what is going on with you and then asking the best questions about it. For example, if your mood is off, be aware of it and then ask yourself […]
