Health, Wealth & Happiness

I haven’t posted anything since the inspiring evening shared with Taryn and the other local BIM ambassadors nearly a year ago. While the changes over the last year have been subtle externally, they have been deep internally. At the start of 2017 post-op physio was ongoing for the right knee arthroscopic surgery done in November. […]

Recovery is not just for the body.

Surgery is considered a “controlled injury” and while I realized it would require downtime and rehab, I hadn’t given this part of the process much thought. The focus had been mostly on the big day where finally a surgeon would “fix” me. haha. What was I thinking? “Recovery” mentally feels like you are being held […]

Making Space

Hope. Denial. Struggle. Conceding. These four words sum up nicely the conflict that was happening within my mind for quite some time. The more I fought against my reality, the more painful it became. Hope. Hope is necessary for a happy life. It gives you the opportunity to dream and to remain positive in the […]

The Three P’s of Progress

rogress. Progress occurs when we are living mindfully, practicing patience, keeping things in perspective, and persevering when life throws you a curveball. When we get wrapped up in always moving forward, not acknowledging where we’ve come from and how much changed has taken place, we tend to rob ourselves of the joy and satisfaction earned […]

All it takes, is work.

To some work is a “four letter word”, it’s what some of us do to earn a paycheque. In some cases you enjoy it and in others, you don’t. What we do “for work” and what we “work at” can be as different as night is to day. It’s nothing to be afraid of, and […]

Walking the Walk

I love talking-the-talk and can stand up here on my soapbox and say whatever’s on my mind and go on and on about how my “mindset” is changing and that’s great. But unless I start putting action behind my words, then what’s the point? How am I motivating anyone, let alone myself, if I don’t […]

Embracing The Fight

Yesterday morning as I was getting dressed, struggling to find something “comfortable”, I was thinking to myself, why do I have to “fight this fight”? I’m tired of battling the excess weight, and maybe even more so, tired of talking about it. Then I saw this post from ETP and laughed out loud. I commented […]

A sense of belonging

I think this is something we are all looking for in different ways, at different times in our lives. I remember struggling to know where I “fit in” as I saw and felt relationships with my friends change as they were welcoming children into their lives. Life was changing for them in a big way, […]

It’s YOUR life, who’s driving?

I mentioned in my last post that I’ve been experiencing, as Oprah called them “AH HA” moments. Well, I had another one today and after giving it more thought this evening it makes even more sense to me. I had this “AH HA” moment today one my way to work. I decided to take a […]
