When Best is Worst and Worst is Best

  So here's the thing; sometimes what we think is best actually turns out to be worst. I was cleaning out my filing cabinet a couple of weeks ago. I'm a shameless packrat and I. Keep. Everything. For some reason, I think I need the slips of paper with disjointed thoughts and reminders scribbled on […]

Pictures of Me

Reverb 13: Please post your favourite picture of yourself from 2012, self-portrait or otherwise! I've looked through every last one.  Every picture from 2012; the good, the bad, the ugly and the unrecognizable. And there's not one of me, just me, without a child or a boyfriend. That says something, right? Maybe that I snap the […]

My Year In Books

Reverb 9: What was the best book you read in 2012, and why? (And by "Why?" I mean: Why did you read it? And why was it your favourite? Although these answers could be one and the same…!) If you only knew how many books I have, just waiting to be read. They taunt me, really, […]

On Chocolate Covered Cherries, Cookie Swaps and Crying Jags

  Today's #Cultivate12 Prompt from Meredith: Foodie Friday — Cultivate Style: Food nourishes us. Some foods give us more enjoyment than others. Some foods leave us feeling less than ourselves. What foods nourished your soul and body this year? What food choices can you make in 2013 to cultivate more self-care?   I spent part of […]

One Step Forward, A Few Steps Back

  Combining two prompts for today. The first, from Meredith: Letting Go: What do you need to let go of to cultivate your best life in 2013? and the second, from Kat:  What will you take with you?    If you only knew how many times I've started this prompt today. I've written about everything […]

Lessons Learned

  Lesson: We may have started this year with the best of intentions, but plans may have gone awry. What lesson really jumped out at you this year? How can you cultivate that lesson going forward? Lessons? Yeah, I've had lessons. Haven't we all? I've been marveling with friends lately just how quickly life moves; […]

This Is Mommy

  I often tell clients that their prospect's perception of them is their reality. Meaning that, at least in the business world, how people see you matters more than how you think they see you.  Same thing is true in the mommyhood. I used to cringe when the kids said they drew a picture of […]

Winter 2012 Bucket List

Winter…yes, it's November but I'm still in denial (aren't I every year? how very original). It's not uncommon for me to start any season with big plans and lofty goals. So many fun things to do, but as slow as the minutes seem to move sometimes the days seem to fly by. Which is why […]

My Life In Twelve Lines: A Mama’s Losin’ It Writing Prompt

  It looks like a jumble of junk on a bedside table. Look closer. It's anything but. Here sits a repository of wishes and witness to good intentions. Tangible clues of my roots, wings and everything in between. Books that I ache to read, but haven't made the time.  They taunt me. A picture intended […]

The Curse of Someday

Someday I'm going to…. That's one of those words that I have a beef with. Someday. You know the words I'm talking about; the ones that push off what we want now to some magical, undefined time in the future when we'll be more or less something…richer, older, thinner, happier, less busy, more energetic…whatever. The […]
