Usually winning is clearly defined. In sports, it is the team with more points at the end of the game or the person that crosses the finish line first. However, this week I was thinking about the less clearly defined “wins” in life. The ones that involve power struggles. These wins can involve self-sacrifice or… Read More Winning?
I would say I’m a pretty goal-oriented person. I am a dreamer at first, but once I see what I want, I chase it. If I want something badly, I focus on it pretty hard. However, I recently discovered that most of the things that I chase the hardest, and wish for the greatest, turn… Read More Bigger And Better Things
When you think of weakness what comes to mind? Is it the image of someone who is unable to move forward physically or mentally?

However, I apparently thought it was intelligent to jump from a window onto gym mats. As much as I never thought I’d be… Read More Would You Jump?
On the weekend, I had the most incredible experience taking my reiki level one with Sarah Knight in Kingston, Ontario. It was a weekend of peace, love, meditation, closing chapters, and opening new doors. No words can fully explain how great it truly was. As we got ready to depart on Sunday, Sarah informed us that we… Read More No Alcohol? No Problem
You know what is awesome? When something good or someone great shows up in the most unusual of places. When something happens completely unexpectedly and turns out to be something really great. Have you ever experienced those moments? How about that time you pulled up to the window at Tim Hortons and the car in… Read More Most Unusual Of Places
For anyone who knows me, they would know that title is a double entendre… However, today I am talking about technology. I find it interesting that there are two types of people during the holidays – those who “attach” and those who “detach” from technology. There are the SnapChat users who film themselves or the Instagrammers… Read More Unattached For The Holidays
