You Are What You Eat

It's something we heard all the time when we were kids. "You are what you eat". We also heard a lot of "eat more meat" and "eat more grains". There wasn't much of a mixed message when I was a kid. It was pretty simple. Follow the Canada food guide and you will be healthy. Of course, this wasn't true but I had no way of knowing that as a kid. Back t...

  We live in this filtered, staged, photo-shopped to perfection world now and I sometimes have a hard time processing that. I've talked before in this blog about how I feel this has created an unrealistic expectation of what life should be. I made a promise to this community that I would not just whitewash life on this blog. I said we would ta...

I love to travel. I talk about it often and I am lucky to be able to say that every few months I find myself on a flight to somewhere. I get a lot of people emailing me about this because many people wonder why I enjoy it (traveling) so much when it can be such a stressful thing. After all, it's not as simple as just getting on a flight and poof yo...

I've recorded a podcast about this but it seems that Apple Podcasts and I are having some issues right now so my web team is working on hosting the Podcasts on this site for you while we work with Apple to get this all sorted out. In the meantime, I am going to fill you in on the podcast here on the blog and hopefully, in the next few days, we can ...

Let's face it we all have days where we think "I wish I could go back to being a kid and have nothing to worry about" right? The truth is there are some days where we as adults think 'Why is this so hard?' I've spent the last week trying to fix problems with my Podcasts and Website so they work together and I don't seem to be making progress. I am ...

I don't know how many of you actually subscribe to podcasts but since I started the Chasing Happiness Podcast last year, I now have a list of about 30 podcasts I subscribe to. This may sound like a lot but in the world of podcasting, it really is a small number. I know people who subscribe to hundreds of different Podcasts. So today I thought we sh...

"You're more of a mother than most women with children. People use this 'mother' title to feel value within themselves not realizing it's the capacity to love that makes you a true woman."    Wise words from a very wise soul who I am blessed to know and love. These words came to me in response to a short article I had posted on my persona...

The last few months or so I have watched as a number of people express to me "How lucky I am that I don't have kids, or a husband or a house to worry about. You can travel and work when you choose to do so."   Frankly, I know I have a sense of freedom that not everyone has, however, I'm sick of people telling me that they can't do what I do be...

 The last few months, hell the last six months even, have been so hard to classify for me. I don't even know where to start with trying to describe all of what has gone on. I've moved back across the country, I've lived with some amazing friends of mine. People who I can never thank enough for taking me into their lives. People who gave me mor...

When I woke up today I saw a Facebook post from my sister in law (she has been away for a couple of weeks and I didn't realize she was now back at home and online again), I posted a short comment to welcome her home without understanding what the "Me Too" that she had posted actually meant. As I scrolled through my Facebook I saw more and more wome...
