Stand Up To Yourself

  Have you let yourself off the hook too easily? “Stand up for yourself!” This statement was used by someone who thought they were encouraging a meek or quiet person who was being bullied in some form or another. To stand up to yourself is another thing altogether. For some of us there is two differing thoughts on occasion; the one for us and possibly one against us. The negative part of your self that seems to work against everything your true and whole ... Read more

Where is your self-care on your priority list?

As I was writing another article on self-awareness, I was thinking about how difficult and draining it can be when we put so many others ahead of ourselves. The people that work in jobs where that quality of care is important are often the ones most affected by this type of energy drain. I wanted to take a deeper look at this for those of you, my clients, friends and followers who are self-employed in a care-giving job. It could be you ... Read more

How Do I Love Me? Let me count the ways…

It's February and all things of the heart are in many of our thoughts. To love is more than a feeling, it’s an action don’t you think? So let's start at the core of where to show this love first.

Happy Everything, Everyone!

I am someone who enjoys the holidays! Friends have been cheerfully celebrating Hanukkah while others busily prepare for Christmas. There are many others who celebrate different traditions as well and not all of them right now, but we can all wish them love and happiness! I love everything about this time of year. Well, almost everything. I love the pretty lights glowing as I drive through my neighborhood making everything sparkle! Baking special treats to gift my friends over the holiday season ... Read more

GET MOVING!

I was just looking at the boxes piling up as we get closer to our move date. I wonder how many others I know are doing the same. There is lots to do but I have been pacing myself. Layers of our stuff have been removed one week at a time and now there are only 4 left before the big day. Moving can mean many things. Moving house and home, moving our body, moving forward in our jobs and life as ... Read more

Is home where your heart is?

They say that home is where the heart is. Who are ‘they” anyways? Well the heart of my home is the kitchen. Actually it is where I am sitting right now, on a stool at the counter with a cup of tea at my right, even though I am a lefty. I can’t stop writing and want my tea hot so there you have it. When family and friends come over for a meal or to commiserate over a cup of tea, ... Read more

What’s in a name and how did you get yours?

I was second born to my 11 month older brother in Winnipeg, Manitoba on November 28, 1958. I have 4 younger siblings of which 2 were girls and 2 were boys. I was given my father’s name Rowland, even though my parents were not married until five of the six of us were born- I was told this nugget as a teen. I was named after the perky character from the song in the movie “Tammy and the Batchelor” which came ... Read more

I have learned…my GPS only works for me

Who’s driving your car? You know how it works, you are a passenger in the car beside your spouse, family member or friend and you give unsolicited directions. “Turn at the next corner, it’s shorter.” “How come you don’t change lanes?” “Slow down! (to a crawl) – I am nervous when you ( not me) drive.” It wasn’t that many months ago that it occurred to me after the words slipped quickly from my lips, that I may be not only trying to ...

How discerning are you?

First off, I felt my quote was a lame post with no blog added. Not a bad quote just lazy on my part so decided to write something that the quote triggered in me, discernment. How can we be more aware of this mismatch of standards ahead of time or deal with it when it happens? Being discerning is pretty important in business. We often do not have choices who work with or for. Deciding how important your sense of well being ... Read more
