Remembering What is Important and a Merry Christmas Eve

Hello dear friends It is afternoon here on Christmas Eve Day. My house is filled with a beautiful silence. I know it won’t last much longer,  as I anticipate the arrival of my two brothers and their partners (and their dog). I’m sitting here by my window ledge looking out at the snow, drinking a mug of hot coffee and snacking on a collection of chocolate edibles. I just finished up a…

Lessons in Letting Go

Huh. So I wrote this post nearly a month ago now. I kept putting off publishing it for this and that reason. When you start a post so far in advance, sometimes it – after time – begins to feel disingenuine because it no longer feels applicable to your current state. But theeeeeeen last week happened. And things kind of made a full circle. Maybe it was just waiting for the right time… Does anyone know what I mean…

Life is Messy: Food Ruts, Food Guilt and Where is My Time?

Ugh. This is so not how this week was supposed to go.  Things just feel so messy right now. I hope you don’t mind – but I’m needing to just do some in the moment-mind dump writing to get it out (a couple hours ago, this would have been much closer to a maddened rant, with a great use of capitol letters and exclamation marks.  Lucky for you I’ve softened myself down with…

Week Reflections: Gratitude, Appreciation, Kindness

Hi friends, So I don’t have a Week In Review for you this week. If I did, my accomplishment list would basically read: end the first week of my show with much success; go out with drinks to celebrate with cast; eat; sleep; survive without grocery shopping even once; read blogs, reply to comments and publish three posts. Staying cool with the kinks that not having internet at home brought was an accomplishment in itself. Oh, and I…

My Little Tablespoon.

I had a whole nice and personal Thinking Out Loud post I wanted to get up today.  But honestly, it just didn’t feel right to do so.  It didn’t feel right to focus on myself right now. Not when I know so many are hurting.  So I thought of just not saying anything, either. I’m not usually one to speak up amidst any sort of political/world event…

Making Goals: How Do You Want To Feel?

A few weeks ago I was introduced to The Desire Map through Leah’s blog. I’ve found myself very intrigued by what Danielle LaPorte has written and would like to think out loud with you today. Thank you, Amanda.  With The Desire Map, Danielle presents the idea of asking ourselves, “How Do I Want To Feel?” when it comes to making our goals.  How do I want to…

Life Check In: What’s Working and Where I Still Want Change

So I started this subject on Monday and decided I didn’t want to let it go.  I spoke about the things I had noticed in my previous week that were “working” for me – the things that are making me feel good and I’m currently happy about. The awesome thing is that there are a number of these things right now. In addition to asking myself “what are the things that…

My Trip To Scotland

And I’m back.  Just like that. After almost four months spent at home and then two weeks touring Scotland, I am back in Toronto. On my own. In my own little apartment. Taking myself to my cafes for my morning coffee and writing.  I have a lot of feelings going on right now. But rather than try and process them all at once, I’d like to just take this time to talk about Scotland…

One Year Ago…

Hi guys, So today, August. 16th, marks one year since I started this little blog of mine.  Oh boy do I remember that day.  I was in the downstairs basement of the Starbucks that I worked at  – all cold and wet from numerous rain leaks. Probably feeling pretty down trodden, as that place was seriously getting me down in those last days that I was working there. Looking all glamorous in my sexy green apron and…

The Life Giving List – Healthy Ways to Spend My Time

I mentioned in a post last week how right now –  as I go through a pretty intense change of what my habitual way of living has been, and with that a whole slew of changes of thoughts and feelings – I am needing some extra “distraction.”  I am needing activities that I can do to literally take my mind off any coming anxiety and make the hours pass in a healthy way. That being said, using…
