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…

The Fear of Making a Mistake

I am constantly learning. Learning and re-learning. Sometimes when I’ve learned something new, I think I have just had the most profound, life changing revaluation. But then, only a mere few days later, I find this new revelation has lost all its sparkle and no longer feels like truth at all. Major womp.  Same goes for my needs. At one moment I can think I need a certain something from someone, to only find a…

What I Learned While Packing: Embrace The Mess

As you saw from Monday’s epic post, last week was a big one. I packed up and moved out of my apartment.  There was a lot of sweat, and a lot of mess.  Throughout the week – and which came as a pleasant surprise –  I came to embrace this mess more and more each day. I have no idea where you stand on the “clean obsession” scale, so you may not…

The World of a Super-Feeler: Parenting a Child Through Difficult Emotions

I was first introduced to the term, “Super-Feeler,” when I began seeing a new psychologist a couple of years ago. I knew she was specialized in something called, “Emotion Focused Therapy,” (EFT) but to be honest I had zero idea what that even meant. Needless to say, I was quite shocked (and intrigued) when a couple sessions in she used me and the term, “super-feeler” in the same sentence. &#8220…

A Few Simple Words

The week before last, I had my wallet stolen (or lost? …who can ever be sure). This was the second time this happened in three months. I had just taken out cash, so yeah, in addition to everything else, I lost 100+ dollars.  I have no idea what happened, and I’m not going to spend any more time trying to rationalize it or retrace my steps. And I’m not going to spend any more…

Trials and Errors of Blogging (and life)

I initially wrote this post a few days ago and then struggled to decided when/if I would post it.  I am feeling more compassionate as I now return to my laptop and have decided to give it another chance. Welcome to my current blogging mind dump.  I’ve been feeling really uncomfortable with my blogging. Its been creeping up over the last month, but really struck me hard last week. I published what, after the…
