How To Get Out Of The Rut

Feeling in a rut? This flashback post may be just the what you need. Every day we make so many conscious and unconscious choices its easy to forget that we actually have a choice.  We have a choice to hold the door for someone or the choice to give up our seat on the bus … Continue reading

Happiness lies within, but it’s also my password

No, don’t go getting all excited that you can get into my bank account because that’s not the case. However today I wanted to share a lesson I learned about how easy it is to change your outlook on life by doing something so simple as changing a changing a password.

Finding Inspiration: favourite quotes

Lately I have been really really upset and while looking for something to grab on to I re-read this post regarding my favourite inspirational quotes.  Unfortunately, I have clung to some of them so long they have lost some of their reverence, but I am sharing in case others are in need of a little … Continue reading

A change in mind and a change in heart

Last night was not a great night for me. I was exhausted and as I lay on the floor playing with the kids I almost felt myself dozing off. Of course, as I was trying to give some quality time to Sawyer the twins got into their usual mischief. By the time I finally got … Continue reading

I Finally Rode My Bike to Work

That’s right.  This Sunday (30th) I decided to say FU to winter and ride my bike to work. However, mother nature said FU right back at me and the morning commute was awful.  Even though it was 0 degrees, when you are going 32km/hour on a bike with wind it felt like -30 (and after … Continue reading

Looking In The Mirror: Ending The Cycle Of Parental Judgement

It never ceases to amaze me how much judgement goes on in the parenting community.  Even the tiniest decisions become controversial and anyone is willing to judge you based solely on what they see or the very limited amount of information they know about you. Rather than simply complaining about it or telling people to … Continue reading
