5 ways to stay calm amidst the chaos…
Happy Friday! It’s true, the Coronavirus COVID-19 is a serious situation. And the situation seems to be changing almost by the minute. And, that doesn’t mean we need to stock up on enough toilet paper to last us for the next 3 months! (it may seem silly, but in numerous Costcos and grocery stores across the […]Read More
Do you know how fabulous you are?!?
Happy Friday! And happy (almost!) International Women’s Day! Today, and every day, I celebrate YOU. Even though I hope we don’t need a special day to realise how fabulous we are. (And you know what, I don’t necessarily want to exclude the men today. I really don’t think today should be about a battle of […]Read More
How to make miracles happen…
Happy Friday! There is something magical about newborn babies, isn’t there? Yesterday, I got to hold a beautiful baby girl, a mere five days old. And three hours later (it’s amazing how the time just passes by…) I was still staring, still in awe at the miracle. She stayed cozily asleep in my arms for […]Read More
What if, instead of leaving a legacy, you lived your legacy?
Happy Friday! And a happy friday it is, too! The sun is out, glistening on the lake as I watch through the glass doors to my right. I have the soundtrack to Hamilton blasting in the background, and I’m smiling. Last night I was lucky enough to go with my cousin to see the award-winning […]Read More
🎶🎵 Give a little love each day 🎵 🎶 (… my FAVE song from grade one!)
Happy Friday! And Happy Valentine’s Day! This morning I was so excited when I received a Valentine’s Day card from my little niece, carefully folded with a sticker heart to properly conceal it. Remember those Valentine’s Day cards we used to exchange when we were in grade school? I used to love both giving and receiving them […]Read More
The 3 Most Powerful Words You Could Ever Use…
Happy Saturday! My whole family is excitedly sitting in the airport, eating a quick bite for breakfast before getting ready to board our flight to Providenciales, Turks & Caicos (indeed, we are spoiled!) And my little 5-year-old nephew, promptly and instinctively after taking the first bite out of his cinnamon bun, still chewing, gave a big thumbs […]Read More
Lessons learned after a silent meditation retreat…
Happy Saturday! From where I sit some 30,000ft in the air, flying back from Montreal after finishing my silent meditation retreat early evening yesterday. It was a ‘Metta’ retreat – which embarrassingly enough I didn’t know too much about prior to signing up – nor had I ever practiced this type of meditation before. Metta […]Read More
Why you need to act ‘as if…’ and how to do it.
Happy Saturday! At the annual CAPS (Canadian Association of Professional Speakers) convention in December, they had what they called ‘game changer’ moments. These mini sessions took place on the main stage, and featured select individuals within the Association who had two minutes to share their biggest ‘game changer.’ The one that stuck with me the […]Read More
Why I’m not setting resolutions this year…
Happy Friday! I’m still on a high from two back to back ‘Brave New Year, Brave New YOU!’ workshops.. one in Boston, one in Toronto. And I have to say, they were pretty powerful. There were laughs, there were tears, and there were some pretty brave visions and brave lists happening… and I can’t tell […]Read More
NYE in NYC… all I learned celebrating solo.
Happy Friday! And happy first Friday of the new year, and new decade! Happy Friday! And happy first Friday of the new year, and new decade! I have a feeling it’s going to be a good one. Maybe because I’m choosing to make it so. (Or maybe because after spending an amazing New Year’s Eve in […]Read More
Before we ring in the New Year, do this ONE thing…
Happy Friday! (and happy LAST Friday of 2019 to boot!) I’m sitting here still in my new Christmas pyjamas (yes, if you read my email yesterday the matching ones with all 8 of our family members from baby Harris to Grandaddy… it was pretty hilarious and pretty special!) sitting next to my niece and nephew, and […]Read More
Here’s what I learned in 2019 🌟… (top 11 list inside!)
Happy Friday! Oh my goodness, I don’t know about you but how did it get to be Dec. 20th already?!? Ca-RAZY! I hope you’re not pulling your hair out yet, and instead choosing to get excited and simply go with the flow. And for those who, like me, partake in Christmas shopping and are not yet […]Read More
