What movie describes your life?

Happily Ever After- life is just good! The Perfect Storm- just one huge disaster! Groundhog Day- the same old, same old… The Trouble with Harry… you feel dragged along with no choice or control! Please comment on what movie/series describes your life. Whatever it is – if you are not thrilled with its content you have a choice to change it. No I did not say it would be easy, just that it is possible. If you don’t know where to start, get support to figure that ... 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

Have you ever had “yeah, but-itis”?

I cannot tell you how many times people have said “yeah, but…” in response to something I said. I may have had an opinion, insight or idea they either never heard completely or couldn’t be bothered to listen. Like they were busily creating what they were going to say. Brushing me off completely while they created their case! I end up feeling like I don’t matter or that I must defend myself. It’s awful! How do I know that this may have ... Read more

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

Why take the time to stop, look and listen

A dear friend mentioned that self esteem comes from our parents. This was not news to me as I thought it was about our sense of value and that it most likely came from our parents…they/we are always the culprits. More importantly and specifically it is from being consciously listened to with eye contact. This sounds simple right? Not so simple these days. The busier we are the more things we are doing at the same time fracturing our attention from ... Read more

I fell off my bicycle…

I fell off my bicycle 2 weeks ago. Not to worry, I am okay with mostly bumps and bruises. I sat in the street in agony laughing my head off. The two retired women who came to my rescue couldn't help but laugh as they scraped me off the asphalt and dragged my bike the 3 houses I got. It was my beloved's old bike actually and I was just giving it an around the block test-drive to decide if I ... Read more

“There are four questions of value in life…”

“There are four questions of value in life... What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.” (Don Juan deMarco - 1995) -Johnny Depp How would you answer each question? I would love it if you can add them to the comments. Read more

Life is too short to be anything but happy!

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Unknown This quote says so much to me. I used to ... Read more

12 Secrets to a Happy Marriage

Let it go …you really can’t control your beloved, only your own behaviours. Not to be confused with giving up or giving in. Acceptance is the key to harmony. Let go, and love. Trust your beloved – they are in this relationship, too. We all get up wanting to do our best, sometimes we just miss our own mark and end up…just doing our best. Really talk ‘with’ not ‘at’ your beloved –let yourself be vulnerable. Get to really know each other. We ... Read more
