Laughter and a Sense of Humor – Healthy Medicine for the Mind and Body

October 29th, 2012

When it comes to my health, I am admittedly a work in progress.  I love the aspect of continually learning, working and striving to live the life of healthy possibilities, and with that said, I am most appreciative of the healthy things that are priceless and free for the taking, like laughter and a sense of humor.  I could not imagine a day without laughter and certainly thankful for embracing how positive and effective a sense of humor is. If the saying holds true that


Best Accessory You Can Wear – Your Confidence!

October 26th, 2012

Ask me if I love being stylish, dressing a certain way, making a personal style statement and the answer is an absolute yes! There is nothing more fun to me than finding a way to express my own unique sense of style.  Whether it’s following a certain trend that speaks to me or picking out accessories that make a statement, I love the ability to pull together a look that allows me to express my unique self. At the end of the day, it’s not


A Balanced Life?

October 19th, 2012

A balanced life, is there such a thing? Are you striving for what we’ve all come to refer to as work-life balance? The other day by good a friend of mine reminded me that there is no such thing as work-life balance.  Not only is life continually out of balance but the idea of work-life balance is not something that resonates with our feelings thus making it even more unachievable for us to imagine. First off, we process our thoughts through images and feelings.  If


Your Foundation of Health

October 15th, 2012

When you imagine your life, all your dreams and desires you’re striving towards, do you also remember to think about your health?  Are you taking care of the most important thing – YOU! Are you making your health a priority along with all your other goals or are you, of the mind, that you’ll get to it when the so-called “other” important stuff gets taken care of first? When it’s all said and done, is the so-called, “other” stuff really important, if in fact you


When Goodbye Comes as a Suicide

June 5th, 2012

I will never have the answer to why my brother took his life, the answer died with him, but letting go of the why has allowed me to find a way to celebrate his life. I’ve often wondered that if we knew in advance how our life would unfold would it be easier knowing what was coming, and would we somehow be better equipped for the events as they arrived?  There’s no doubt that experience provides us with a place of reference when we come


Patience, Young Grasshopper!

March 23rd, 2012

Patience can be a difficult word for many of us to swallow but it’s worth practicing and finding a way to weave into your day. Regardless of how I look at my day, whether it’s from a personal or professional aspect I realize in order to find success and balance it doesn’t work without a little patience. Playing with finding your patience is like a beautiful tango, in one moment you’re completely in sync with the idea and in the next moment you’re challenging the


Are You Living In The Shadows

March 19th, 2012

When it comes to living your life, are you living in the shadows rather than in your truth? I had an amazing reminder this past week that not everything that we believe to be the truth or to be real, is so. When we stand in the shadows of our life our perception of our reality and what we believe to be true can become distorted. The shadows can lure and trick our mind into believing that what we see is as real as our


Permission To Love

February 8th, 2012

Do we need permission to love? Ask the heart and the answer will be a definite NO, ask the mind and the answer may not be so clear. I believe at the core of our being we love from only one place, our heart. If you’ve been fortunate enough to experience a loving relationship as child to parent or parent to child then I need not say more, you understand unconditional love. A love, that exists within our heart deep within our soul, with no


Does Colour Impact Our Life

February 6th, 2012

Colour. Take a moment and think about what comes to mind when you hear or think about the word colour.  I’m sure for most of us we associate colour in the simplest of ways by identifying with what our “favourite colour” is, but let me ask you this, have you considered how colour impacts our life? First, lets start by exploring how colour affects us physically and how it plays a role in our mood and then perhaps we can start to better understand the


Living Fearless in 2012

January 18th, 2012

Will you be fearless in 2012? It’s the start of a new year.  The time to ponder what resolutions and goals we’ll set for ourselves and how we’ll make this year different and perhaps even better then the previous one.  With renewed hope and desire for change we’ll jump in both feet first and see what happens! Like many of you I’ve thought about and taken time to set my goals for the year; everything from making simple changes to my heart’s desires.  Some I
