Enough Stuff!

Last Christmas was the breaking point for me. I remember standing amongst the chaos on the 26th of December and feeling upset to the point of nausea. There was so much stuff. Everywhere. Flung carelessly in every corner. Already discarded less than 24 hours later. Not to mention all the packaging, but don’t even get me […] Read More ❱

Talking to Children About Death

Mon chat est mort. This is the title of the book my daughter has written and illustrated at school today. My cat is dead. Well, this should be an interesting read. I pick it up not knowing quite what to expect. To give you a little background, we had to put our cat down when […] Read More ❱

Fragile Ground

I usually love autumn. I enjoy the coolness in the air, the disappearance of humidity, and the colours all around. I adore that first frost-filled early morning run when the air is crisp and you can see your breath. I love walking in the woods, smelling the fallen leaves and feeling the chill on my […] Read More ❱

It’s not “Sex” Education – It’s Just Education

For those who know me, it will not come as a big surprise that I am not a big Doug Ford fan. I just can’t abide by someone who prioritizes the price of beer over the price of healthy nutritious food or prescription drugs for the working poor. I could go on all day about […] Read More ❱

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 ❱

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. Jampolsky I think there is a reason this is a highly plagiarized quote. When you really understand and truly accept it, the results can be astounding. I […] 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 ❱

My Summer of Saying Yes

I am someone who generally thrives on routine. Being an extrovert I sometimes find this a bit odd, but routine makes me comfortable. Other than vacation, summer weekends are usually spent hanging around at parks and museums with the kids and filling up the kiddy pool. This summer we decided to throw routine to the […] Read More ❱

Fighting the Tide

Swastika bearing white supremacists march openly through the streets killing an innocent defender of human rights and beating a black man with sticks. Their country’s leader justifies their actions.  Even seemingly less extreme caucasians are offended by this commercial saying things aren’t really all that bad and they shouldn’t be vilified in such a way.  People call […] Read More ❱
