Do you have a HERO or HEROINE? Is there someone you admire? What are the qualities in them that you admire or aspire to be like? Remember the 1980’s movie classic, When Harry Met Sally? Sally faked an orgasm in a restaurant and an older woman watching, said, “I’ll have what she’s having!” A few years ago I met a delightful person who was “bright and shiny” [...]

I went to art school way back in the 1980’s when I was pregnant with my second child. One of the classes I took was “Weaving.” My professor was renowned for her huge colourful weavings that hung in downtown banks and professional buildings. Her woven pieces were exquisite, breath-taking and one of a kind. Most disturbing, once the contract with the building was over, she destroyed her [...]
Happiness. What’s so great about it? Growing up in Christianity, I believed happiness was a by-product of my right relationship with Jesus Christ. It wasn't something of value in and of itself. Even the letters J-O-Y stood for always thinking of Jesus first, Others second and Yourself last. That was considered True JOY. When I was happy as a kid, it was often tinged with guilt, because I was pretty sure [...]
Who is your most intimate partner in life? Who wakes up with you every morning and goes to bed with you every night? Who helps you take out the trash, cook, clean, dine, drive you around, dance and celebrate? Your body!!!! And what are those 3 little words that your most intimate partner is waiting to hear from you? THANK YOU, BODY! Perhaps because you’ve always had a [...]
I recently asked a superwoman-colleague how she's able to efficiently manage 100's of classes around the world? To be specific, she seems to have a knack to know when this seminar requires some attention...or that one needs a new hosting team, or another's dates need to change. Her super power sense knows when to make a tweak or there . . . and for 100's of classes [...]
An article by blogger James Webb, Existential Depression in Gifted Individuals, tugged at me when he spoke about breaking through the sense of isolation through touch. Just as infants need to be held and touched, those kids experiencing existential depression need it too. Many of us have heard of the failure to thrive syndrome with infants and their mothers. Similarly, my take on it is that bodies of all [...]
When was the last time you went on a RAMPAGE … consciously? What if you were WILDLY AND UNCONTROLLABLY GRATEFUL for everything and everybody that showed up in every moment? What if you went on a rampage of gratitude? Above all letting nothing and nobody stop you from RECEIVING THE GIFT of every person, every challenge and every ordinary piece of life? Why is it a RAMPAGE? [...]
Have you ever felt bad about being inconsistent? Conversely, have you tried hard to be consistent? Perhaps in your workouts, your eating habits, your money habits or your work schedule? Maybe you've followed the self-help gurus out there that say that to be successful, you must “set your goals,” “focus on one thing at a time,” or “create a to-do list” and follow it? Seriously, has any [...]
Yes you. Do that thing you enjoy making. Even if _____________ (insert fave excuse here). Because, you never know who, what, where, when and how it will impact someone. And that someone could be YOU! Once upon a time, I had the point of view that I couldn't create because someone else already probably made it. I was also guilty of waiting to create before it was really great to [...]
Our last night on our trip around Lake Superior. Pulled into a sweet spot for the night. Our dogs had been champs when it came to our neighbour's little dog that loved barking at them all the time. We mused on how far they've come along on these 2 weeks being able to be with other dogs, running kids & loud motors. GOOD DOGGIES! After a long day of [...]
