Awareness is a really cool thing – has this happened to you?

I am not sure if its the meditations, or the books I have been reading  but I seem to be taking in my environment and nature with an added sense of awareness and reflection these days. Do you ever catch yourself seeing something you have seen hundreds of times, but one day see it with a new set of eyes? …

Reunited and it feels so good…plus the harsh reality of ageing

It was visiting day at camp this weekend and a wonderful reunion with Andie and Jamie. The girls looked great despite the fact that I could play connect the dots with the mosquito bites on their legs, and their teeth looked a little less white than usual. They had their wish list of items for us to bring with us …

A year older and maybe finally wiser…

Yes- It’s my birthday…And yes- seeing the numbers on the cake threw me for a second. Am I really 44? How is that possible? And then I realize I have a daughter heading into High School who laughs when I mention the family telephone was attached to the kitchen wall and I traveled to a computer lab in University to …

Statistically-one day you may need them….

I live for summer. The sun, breeze, smell and colours are magnified for me, I will never complain about the heat, or feeling sticky, or having my ice cream melt. I wait ten months to enjoy this short lived season and I hope to make the most of it. Watching my social media feed I can tell many of you …

Hello summer…

Hi! I hope you all had a great Canada Day long weekend. Ours was filled with everything you could think of! Sunday morning the girls left for sleep away summer camp and our “staycation” began 🙂 I should begin my mentioning the girls have been on countdown to camp, since they arrived home from camp last summer. It is an …

Why your genetic imprint is controlling more than you think…

” Do Not Pray For An Easy Life. Pray To Be A Strong Person” This is one of my favorite quotes. It hung above my bed as a young girl. I still have it today. It had no religious undertone for me, but I loved the message. Work hard, don’t expect things served to you on a silver platter, enjoy the …

This update is overloaded with content- so open :)

Happy Monday! How incredible was our weekend! I feel a thousand times better with the natural dose of Vitamin D now in my system! Sit back- there is a ton of information to pass on today- starting with the amazing flash sale for the cruise! The pricing is amazing- but we wanted to be able to break down what the …

Milestones & achievements to be celebrated…

Lives Worth Celebrating… From my Mom’s 70th birthday celebrations, to watching my friend Chris Phillips get inducted into the Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame, my weekend was about honoring the people I care about and admire. There really is something to celebrate when you watch people age, deal with illness and the loss of friends. My mom turned 70 a …

Be inspired and heal from within…

EPIC! That’s the trip we have planned for you! Words cannot express the gratitude I felt Sunday afternoon after hours of brainstorming with my amazing experts joining me on the “Awaken A Better You Wellness Cruise” along the Danube. Despite missing Korey Kealey at the table, we talked about the concept, and what we each brought to the table, but …

When life gets a little messy….

Hope everyone had a great long weekend! Mine was all over the map! Andie and I had a chance to catch up, with some great mother/daughter time traveling to the Umbro Cup in Mississauga for a soccer tournament. I was dressed for winter on the sidelines on Saturday. Sunday as many of you know was much more bearable. The weekend …
