Making A Home

The act of finding a suitable place to live is another one of those crazy unpredictable things in life. You may have one idea of how it should go, but chances are it won't end up that way. We had a set idea in our head that we would live in the downtown core and... Continue Reading →

A Long Journey

I'm going to empathize long here! Driving over 3000 kms in a truck with your spouse, three kids, dog and let's not forget the hamster is the definition of insanity! At least I'm pretty sure it comes close to it. I'm lucky really. No one got hurt or hurt each other and we are all... Continue Reading →

Eastward Bound

Be Grateful So today's chapter is about being grateful. I find this fitting seeing as I just wrote a blog about how meeting my kid's Xmas expectations is stressing me out. Gratitude is a funny thing. It's easy to say we should be grateful or happy with what we have but its in our nature... Continue Reading →

Well That Didn’t Work

It's amazing how quickly life can get in the way of good intentions! I think one of the most important skills or lessons you can learn in life is adaptation. Any diet or exercise plan that doesn't allow for that will not work. I'm living proof. Now this isn't to say I've completely given up... Continue Reading →

#Yogalosophy Journal Day Two
