Water

We take a lot of things for granted, especially here in North America. We have a habit of expecting to have access to all the things we are used to having. We figure no matter where we go or what we do we have a right to it. Whatever IT happens to be. For some people, this changes as they travel to other countries because there is so much we have a...

Saturday Frustration

Over the last seven and a half months, I've been learning to be more accepting of myself. More accepting of my flaws, which has been hard. More accepting of my thoughts about my life. More accepting of my body because like most women I have body acceptance issues. More accepting of my feelings because I need to learn that my feelings have value and...

I’m Not Sorry!

 I've been sick this week and have been feeling bad about it because I've gotten nothing done. Today was the first day this week I've felt like getting out of bed. I was going to write a post about how I haven't posted anything for a while and I should really do a better job at that, but as I was sitting down to write this, I realized……. I'm n...

We all struggle

At the start of this week, I felt lost. I felt alone. I was starting to feel like I would never figure out where my life needed to go. I felt trapped in a dark room without a flashlight. I had no idea how I was going to get out. Funny thing is; when you seem eternally lost and have no light to guide you, life has a way of tossing you a match to lig...

ART

When I was a child I loved art. I loved making art. I loved looking at art. I had this emotional experience when it came to art. I still have an emotional experience when I view art. People laugh at me when I try to explain it, but I feel paintings. I see a drawing on a wall of a girl playing in a field of flowers and my heart sings. I don't know h...

Obituaries

 I'm reading this book One of the things the book suggests to do is write two of your own obituaries. One is the life you are headed for if you continue to live the life you have now. The second one is your ideal obituary. What it would be if you lived the life you wanted. At first, I thought this was a little morbid. I wasn't sure I wanted to...

Day 2

I know I'm a little behind with these and I apologize. I will do my best to get the rest of them posted over the next couple of weeks. I was excited for day two because we were getting into areas of Ontario that I'd never been. Even though I have family all over Ontario because I don't have a car, I don't always get a chance to go see other places....

Finding A Purpose.

I'm trying to find my purpose in life. I'm looking for something that sets my soul on fire. I want to lead a life of purpose. I want to be happy. I'm still not sure what all of that will look like. I still don't have all the answers, but I have made a point of trying to find people in my life that I find inspiring. People that I can learn something...

Being Accountable…..

I've been here in Alberta for a month now and I've become lazy with this blog. I didn't realize how lazy I had gotten with it until I opened the folder on my laptop where I keep all my written, not yet posted blog posts. It's not that I've stopped writing, I've just become lazy about finishing and posting them. This is unacceptable to me. I feel li...

Everyday is a new start

I read this quote today and it moved me. I have spent a good chunk of my life re-adjusting my view of my life. Trying to find the blessings in the chaos that was my childhood. Years ago I came to terms with the fact that my childhood wasn't typical and I actually become grateful for that. We moved around a lot when I was little, which for a young g...

Day 1- Leaving

I feel like leaving the place I've called home for more than a decade should have been hard. I think I should have felt sad or even just a little melancholy over such a big change. I, however, didn't feel sad, melancholy or even a little emotional. I was excited and couldn't wait to go. I knew this change was something I needed.  I also knew t...

Projects That Matter

Sometimes we are blessed enough to meet a person who inspires us in life. Someone who is doing something extraordinary with his or her life. I'm blessed enough to have a few of these people in my life. I am honoured that I seem to keep finding more of these amazing people as life goes on. I ran into one of these extraordinary people while I was mak...

In Need Of Sleep

Moving is a stressful thing. Moving across Canada is a long and stressful process. Don't get me wrong; I'm very excited about this new journey I'm on. I'm seeing parts of Canada I never dreamed of. We live in such a place of beauty is blows my mind. It's just that after being in a U-Haul truck for about 10 hours a day, I'm done. I feel exhausted ev...

Be Prepared To Get What You Ask For

A funny thing happens when you ask the universe for a change. The universe answers. It was only five weeks ago I decided to change my life drastically. Slowly my life has been changing. The universe has now given me a very large push in the direction of change. This has all happened so quickly my head is still spinning trying to manage everything t...

Feelings

It's been 19 days since I came home and knew I needed to leave this place. 19 days just doesn't seem like that long when you say it out loud. It doesn't seem accurate when I know how much I've changed. 19 days of purging everything I own. 19 days of explaining to friends and family why I'm doing this. 19 days of doing what feels right. I struggle t...

Tears & Tea

A few weeks ago I decided that my life needed to change. I knew I would have to break away from this life I had built in order to find what makes me happy. What I didn't know was how fractured emotionally this would make me. What I hadn't considered was how on edge I already was. What I didn't think about was the timing of all this. When you have t...

What am I doing here?

How did I get here? What am I doing with my life? These questions have been on my mind for months now, but I had no idea how to answer them. I wasn't even sure if I could answer them. I thought I loved this place. I thought I had exactly what I wanted. I did all the 'right' things, followed the 'right' path and yet here I am. Completely lost. Lost ...
