“So often, we pretend we’ve made a decision, when what we’ve really done is signed up to try until it gets too uncomfortable” — Jen Sincero, You are a Badass

Decisions have a way of creeping up on you.

As 2018 was ending I had my regular mammogram and my annual doctor’s visit. In December I got a call to go to the hospital for another mammogram and an ultrasound. The radiologist wanted to take another look at a cyst that had abnormalities. While things were OK, I would need to go back in 4 months for another set of tests.

Creating a New Metabolic Mindset

This post is sponsored by Metabolic Mindset. All content and opinions are my own.

I first met Geoff Vacon of Metabolic Mindset when we were both working at a retail store in the fall of 2018, and I immediately recognized him as “one of my people”.  I found out that he was from Halifax, and living in Moncton while he was taking a course to become a paramedic, and we had a lot of friends in common.

Relationship Lessons

I learn lessons in so many unexpected ways. This is how I learned about the power of building a strong relationship.

I recently shared a post on my personal Facebook page. Nothing unusual about that. It had come up on my newsfeed a couple of times. The first time I scrolled by, not bothering to read it. The next time it came up I looked a bit closer. It had been shared a couple of times by people that I knew from a bloggers group I belong to, so I clicked on the link. It doesn’t matter what the content was about, because that is not the point of this blog. Continue reading “Relationship Lessons”

A year of Cleansing

When I chose “Cleansing” as my word for 2018, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. 2017 was a difficult year with the loss of our business, and therefore for me, a loss of sense of purpose, direction and income.

My hope was that going into 2018 with a mindset of cleansing would help me to shed those feelings of shame and disappointment. I also thought it would take a couple of months for me to “get over it” and “move on”.

Turns out that wasn’t the case. AT ALL.

Christmas shows you may have missed

It seems that there is much discussion about the Hallmark channel Christmas movies. There are lists of the “best” and the “worst”, though honestly, I can’t really tell the difference.

With hundreds of channels and streaming services, there are more shows available than ever before. I think it is wonderful that technology gives us the ability to watch shows whenever we want, but it’s kind of sad that we miss the anticipation of waiting for a show, or an event.

Decorating for Christmas with CP Real Designs

This is a sponsored blog post. The content and opinions are my own.

My friend Craig Prosser of CP Real Designs came by recently to help me decorate for Christmas. On his last visit, he had given me homework to declutter my living room and to get rid of some books that had been collecting dust. I was proud of the work I had done in clearing space.

Connecting Traditions with our Lives

Whether it’s dinner on Sundays when the whole family gets together, or something as simple as eating the red smarties last. Traditions help to connect us to our past and create memories for years to come. I was reminded of the importance of remembering special times when I wrote A Life in Review

Revision, Reconnect, Re-purpose with CP Real Designs

This is a sponsored blog post. The content and opinions are my own.

Craig Prosser is one of the experts that I talked about in Building Bridges. One of the most powerful and life changing conversations that I have had with him was about what brought us joy when we were children. For me it was words, whether I was reading or writing. For him, it was all about interior design. I challenged him to find ways to reconnect with that love, and to share it with others. That’s how it came to pass that Craig created CP Real Designs . I’m happy to be working with him in this new venture.
