Question your beliefs. Sometimes we believe things for so long they just settle in and stay. Challenge whether or not they’re still working for you. What could happen if you open up, take a chance, let yourself be vulnerable? Too often behaviour is driven by the need to avoid shame – the need to avoid … Continue reading Looking For A New ‘What If’
I cannot guarantee you that you’ll never fall, but I can guarantee you this, you’ll always rise up!!! Also, failing means you tried. It is also how you can learn things. So be happy with who you are and what you have. It doesn’t mean you can’t be ambitious in life. Be ambitious in things … Continue reading You Are Enough
Not a new tune but this is a good one from one of the most iconic Canadian bands of the past 30 years: Our Lady Peace. Music is the answer for me in almost all situations.
Why? Just why??
Here are some crazy facts about consumerism and spending.
People love to shop, and we spend a lot of time doing it. We just cannot wait to part with our money. Every year we spend trillions of dollars on clothing, electronics, homes and household items, cars and a billion other products- most of them replacing things that are still working. It’s hard to believe the staggering amounts being spent. Here are some other mind blowing facts about the USA’s consumer habits. But don’t think Americans are alone in this, as they are just an example of how we’ve all become consumers instead of citizens.

Where … Continue reading I Think Life Is Just A Made Up Thing

There’s a sense of incompleteness in our lives.
We have felt it since adolescence, at least, if not since early childhood — it’s a feeling that something is wrong with us, that something is missing, or that we’re missing out on something in the world.
It’s a feeling of disconnection or loneliness from others, a sense that we don’t fit in. A feeling of moving through the world in isolation, unfulfilled, without a sense of intimacy with others, without a sense of purpose in what we’re doing.
We crave that feeling of connection and intimacy with others, and seek it in online social networks, but it’s lacking. It drives us to use dating apps to find the perfect someone, but the dating doesn’t bring intimacy. It drives us to look at photos of what other people are doing in the world, read about their adventures, but feel like we’re…

You can’t get a firm grasp on the fluidity of life. And so we get stressed, procrastinate, feel hurt, get depressed or anxious, get angry or frustrated, lash out or complain. Into this craziness I’d like to suggest the ridiculously awesome practice of surrendering.
