Mommy It Hurts

I've been wanting to write this for a week now. Almost to the day. On this day a week ago my son's beloved hamster died. He found the furry little guy in his cage already gone when he went to take him out to play. Ham Diggity was 2 1/2, which is a pretty good... Continue Reading →

Blissfully Loud

I LOVE yoga! In fact I have a daily practice (give it take a Sunday here and there) at home with my favourite YouTube yoga teacher Adriene. It gives me peace and exercise all in one. A self journey so to speak. No that's exactly what it is. It's my religion. As a part of... Continue Reading →

But It Hurts

Why is that doing the right thing always hurts?!  Take shoveling your neighbour's driveway for instance; this hurts!  Literally.  You're out shoveling the pile of freshly plowed snowed from the bottom of your driveway, because you are on the evening or night shift and you just know that there is no way that your neighbour...

When Someone Dies

Would it make you think any differently about your life if I told you that you are born to die?  Would it make you enjoy every moment?  Would it make you see things more clearly or feel things more deeply?  Would you still take people for granted?  Maybe.  For a little while you would change....

Mirror, Mirror

We all know this one, " mirror, mirror on the wall; whose the fairest of them all?" From the Disney Classic Snow White. The evil queen desperate for validation seeks approval from anyone she can. Her obsession going so far as to want to take another's life just for being prettier. We can all relate... Continue Reading →

Negative Noose

 You would be hard pressed to go through life never encountering negativity. It's everywhere. A fact of life. The question is not will you experience negativity, but how will you deal with it when you do?  Negativity is like a black hole. It likes to pull everything into it in an all consuming way. I'm...
