What are your goals this year? How will you attain them?

What are your goals this year? How will you attain them?

The other day, I asked my husband if he had any New Years Resolutions. He answered in a way that is similar to how I feel. He said, “I feel like I’m continuously working on myself. Not just once a year.” But, starting the calendar year, there are certainly goals (business, health, financial) I want […]

New year though the eyes of a child

New year though the eyes of a child

I’ve been relishing this winter break. Babe has been in kindergarten since this fall and it’s been a pretty big adjustment for the entire family. One of the biggest changes is that we spend less time together. I find the school day long and miss the days when I could easily pick the kids up […]

Being comfortable with our discomfort

Being comfortable with our discomfort

We pretty much do everything to avoid being uncomfortable, don’t we?  I don’t know about you, but in the summer, I blast the air conditioner. In the winter, the heat. We avoid speaking the truth in a situation for fear that we might become… Uncomfortable. We can take medication at the slightest discomfort. Even a […]

Speak the truth! Speak your truth!

Speak the truth! Speak your truth!

Speak the truth. Speak your truth. Honestly is the best policy, isn’t it? We have this thing, in our house, where we try not to encourage lying.

Trying something new, and loving it

Trying something new, and loving it

Do you get out of your comfort zone, regularly, or do you tend to do the same things over and over that come naturally easy? Is trying something new terrifying or exhilarating? Growing up, I was good at a lot of things. I excelled in arts as well as sports. Things came naturally to me […]

Qui suis je? Does what we wear really matter?

Qui suis je? Does what we wear really matter?

Do you ever stop to reevaluate whether the way you look reflects who you are? Clothes do not make a person, but could it be that dressing in a way that makes you feel good, can make you feel… Good? I’m in yoga pants most of the time whether for work or comfort. I’ve touched […]

Limiting ourselves, limiting our kids (or how I stopped rocking Bug to sleep)

Limiting ourselves, limiting our kids (or how I stopped rocking Bug to sleep)

Every day we’re given the chance to start over. To be and do anything we want. I believe that it’s our limiting beliefs that hold us back from greatness. Once we start to tap into these ideas–that we are the ones in control of our own lives, we can start to recognize the way we […]

The Thaw

The Thaw

The snow is melting in Montreal. I’m on top of my game, feeling in fine form in all the ways. School, kids, love and social life have me all filled up. I’m in charge of my health and wellness. I’m sleeping more than I probably have in four years. 365 days ago, I didn’t feel […]
