The Cherry on Top

The Cherry on Top

Spring is such an incredible shift in energy and nature. While the rest of Canada and northern USA may be hearing the early whispers of spring, here in Metro Vancouver we are already saying good bye to cherry blossom season. My first post on these magnificent little gems represented the first blossoms of the season. This post … Continue reading

A Balancing Act Indeed

A Balancing Act Indeed

Life is a balancing act that will keep you on your toes for a lifetime. This is a recent Happy Box creation that seemed to fit my current schedule perfectly. I love that saying, “God only gives me what I can handle, I just wish he didn’t trust me so damn much!” I am dealing … Continue reading

What Do You See?

Today, be present and pay attention to all the signs around you….who knows what magic will reveal itself to you. Do you see it? It is so clear to me but perhaps you see something different.

Shedding Old Skins In The Name of Transformation

Shedding Old Skins In The Name of Transformation

Life is full of unexpected twists and turns, and I recently experienced the slithery reptilian variety. I am quite surprised to find myself writing about snakes and even more surprised to have had one of such stature and strength wrapped around my neck. To be perfectly frank I didn’t know I had it in me. I embraced … Continue reading

Bloom Where You Are Planted

Bloom Where You Are Planted

I like to people watch. My favourite time of year to people watch is in the summertime. I am fascinated with legs of all shapes and sizes and summertime beckons skirts, shorts and dresses onto the runway of life. I also like to watch faces, to see if they are happy. I have written about this … Continue reading

TGIF

If anyone is having one of those days, or weeks….which I certainly am….I hope you find some light and love in these sage words from Eckhart Tolle: Life isn’t as serious as the mind makes it. That mind of ours is just sooo busy and what good does it do? Seeing that it is Friday I … Continue reading
