Everything is a gift

April 7, 2013
My birthday is on December 25th so I have a bit of experience when it comes to receiving gifts.

My parents were very good about separating my birthday and Christmas so I felt like I was able to benefit from both.  Christmas time became a very exciting time for me. There is a joke in our family about how my mom needed to hide the Christmas edition of the Sears catalogue.  If I saw in in October or November when it first came out,  I would spend every day analyzing all the new and exciting toys ...

The greatest mistake

April 7, 2013
Recently, I was reintroduced to this song by 54-40. I heard it from the perspective of the lyrics being sung to myself.


The greatest mistake - 54-40


I treated you wrong and that ain't right
It took me too long to realize
that the only thing that matters is right now

Because no one knows if the soul exists
They don't know where it goes
when it gets too hard to lift
I gotta be part of
the greatest mistake called love

Forgetting my best to treat you kind
I shouldn't have let you read my mind
And that the o...

Even Eagles Need a Push by David McNally

My good friend, Mike, shared this video with me.

I love the quote, "Why does the thrill of soaring have to begin with the fear of falling?"

What part of the video resonates with you? Feel free to share your comments on this blog

You have no problems

March 21, 2013
What problems do you have currently in your life?
How are you dealing with them?

At times, life can seem like it is full of problems. There is drama at every turn. All we want is some peace and quiet yet it never seems to come.

It doesn't have to be this way.  There is a different perspective you can take.

You don't have any problems.

We only have problems if we focus on the fact that we have them. This doesn't we walk away from things happening in our lives. 

It does mean that we take a differe...

What is your intention?

March 4, 2013
What are you really looking to accomplish from a conversation, a work meeting or your life for that matter?

When you are meeting someone for the first time, what are you saying to yourself about the purpose of the interaction?

If you are speaking to a client or perhaps a co worker, what is the ultimate goal of the conversation?

I have been asking myself these questions a lot lately.  It all came down to one key question for me,
what is my intention?

I have been working towards using this questio...

See Peace

February 4, 2013
Where is the Peace in your life?

Do you believe that Peace is all around you?

What does Peace feel like for you?

What does Peace look like for you?

What does Peace sound like for you?

Find moments throughout your day to notice the Peace
that is always there no matter where you are or what is
going on around you.

Reason, Season or Lifetime

July 18, 2012

A couple of weeks ago, my son and I were visiting with my parents at their cabin. I noticed a poem that my mom's friend had left at the cabin. I didn't have a chance to write it down, but I Googled it and found it instantly. :)


The poem is about how people come into our lives. Some are for a specific reason, some are for a short time and others are for a lifetime.

Reason, Season, or Lifetime


People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you figure out which one it is,
you ...

What is the lesson?

June 22, 2012
Lately, while driving to and from work I have been listening to an audio recording of a talk by Michael Beckwith. He is the Founder and Director of the Agape International Spiritual Center. 

Even when I am not listening to the talk, I hear Michael’s words in my head about one aspect of his message. He shares a shift we all can make. When in a challenge, we have an opportunity to ask ourselves...

What is the lesson?
Where am I to grow?
What needs to change in me?

This is about taking ownership o...

Remove your labels

May 10, 2012

I attended the I Can Do It conference on May 5th of this year in Vancouver, B.C.

Wayne Dyer kicked off the day with a talk full of inspiration, insight, emotion and love.

One of the things he talked about was the importance of removing our labels.

He reminded us the labels we are given as soon as we are born. We are labelled as a boy or a girl. We are given a name. We are labelled by our weight and other measurements. We are called a good sleeper or a bad sleeper. A chubby baby or a skinny one....
