Be Here Now

I have the t-shirt, take the courses and read the books and still from time to time a friendly reminder is required to be present. It’s incredible the thoughts and conversations and realizations had when we make some space. What the heck does that even mean you ask? Well, being present is being just that, […]

Where’s Your Head At?

During a brief conversation on Instagram today I was reminded it had been some time since I was here last. With that, it was time to sit back and appreciate the experiences over the last few months. Before I get into the details of the months past, I’ll address the title of this post. I’ve […]

#BellLetsTalk

Today is #BellLetsTalk day, so let’s talk! It’s been two and half weeks that I’ve been battling a low back issue, I won’t bore you with the details, but it’s been an up and down episode. And today was an emotional day. Today, was a “tears on the treatment table” kind of day, and it’s […]

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. […]

Until Now

I don’t know what I feel right now. I keep waiting for this big revelation, but on the surface, it seems like nothing is happening. That’s why a seat at the keyboard is needed, to take some time to reflect and appreciate the journey. I had another knee surgery last week, with procedures similar to […]

As per their website, “The Day provides an opportunity for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide.” Well, I consider […]

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 […]

Waving the White Flag

“Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it.” – Eckhart Toile This quote appeared in my Facebook feed this morning, and the more I go back to it, the more sense it makes. It isn’t an easy frame of mind to achieve, at least for me it hasn’t been. I’ve […]

With a new age comes a new mindset

I feel like so much has happened since the start of the year, and when I look at the calendar it already reads April 7, 2015. In less than three months, it will be my thirty-fifth birthday. I’m a big fan of birthdays, especially my own, but I do truly believe in celebrating everyone’s birthday! […]
