10 Things I Learned in 10 Years in Business

Milestones like a ten year anniversary are always good times to stop and reflect. As women we tend to beat ourselves up over mistakes we’ve made, but I’ve been doing a lot of work in the last few years to put down the stick and try to make something constructive of it instead. In that… Read More ❱

Celebrating Ten Years – Quietly

It was at the end of one of my monthly meetings with my business coach that I happened to mention that my business would be celebrating its tenth anniversary this year. “Congratulations,” Lara simply said. “I feel like I should do something to mark the occasion,” I replied. I instantly felt the tension begin in… Read More ❱

The Clinicians Behind the Science

“Antibiotics don’t actually work.” My jaw dropped and I stared like a deer in the headlights. WHAT?? After all, these words had just come out of the mouth of the Chief of infectious disease. At the time we were working together in the cystic fibrosis clinic at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Dr. MacDonald gave me… Read More ❱

On Forgiveness and Self-Acceptance

“Inner peace can be reached only when we practice forgiveness. Forgiveness is letting go of the past, and is therefore the means for correcting our misperceptions.”  Gerald G.

My Shoulder Hurts Too Much to be “Frozen”

“It just started hurting out of the blue and now I can’t move it in certain ways.” The “it” she is referring to is a shoulder. If you knew me you would smile at the words “out of the blue”. You see, for me those words are a challenge. I believe that nothing happens to… Read More ❱

Falls and Near Falls Can Cause Lingering Problems

I grew up in the Toronto area and then went to school in Kingston before settling in Ottawa. When I moved here to begin my career, everyone was going on about how cold it is. I remember thinking, “How bad can it be? It’s not that far from Kingston.” Obviously meteorology and weather patterns are… Read More ❱

The Year of Me

As I read the header on this blog post I think how it completely goes against the grain for a mother of two small children. Me? Who the heck is that? But I have somehow managed to make some decisions and do some things in 2017 that have really been all about me. Ironically it… Read More ❱
