Here’s a little observation I’ve made, or should I say have been reminded of this week – if you ignore the taps on the shoulder by the Universe when it is trying to tell you something, those reminders will eventually become a ton of bricks falling onto you and we’ll be forced to pay attention… Continue reading An Abrupt Reminder From The Universe
Last night, I posted on my personal Facebook page my excitement and proud moment of how I’ve lost a total of 11 pounds and a handful of inches in the last 2 months. A dear friend asked me for some motivation and healthy eating tips, and what I do for physical exercise. I started to write a… Continue reading What Do I Do? More In-Depth Look At My Health and Wellness Journey
Sleeping in on my weekends off seems to be a thing of the past. My body has finally adjusted to the early mornings I get up for work. I’m laying here, on the couch, in the living room with the window wide open. The scent of the cedar mulch surrounding the patio infuses my nostrils,… Continue reading On Days Like Today
Spring time always gets me in the mood to cleanse – whether it is organizing around the house and donating/throwing out what is no longer being used, or cleansing my mind, body and spirit by re-evaluating what is working and what needs to go. I hibernate in the winter, as I am fuelled by the summer… Continue reading Challenge Accepted: Kicking Things Into High Gear
Back in December, I watched the documentary, “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.” I was immediately fascinated with this new (to me) concept of juicing and before the documentary was over, I decided I was going to do my own juice cleanse in January. Admittedly, I wanted to enjoy all the goodies that x-mas had to… Continue reading Juice Cleanse Challenge Accepted
Today marks my 3 year anniversary with WordPress. And although this year I have been rather neglectful on posting regularly, I always come back to this place. There’s something to be said about writing – whether it’s on my keyboard or with a pen in hand – I really enjoy it. As this year comes… Continue reading Happy Anniversary To Me! What?!
2014 will be coming to an end soon and WordPress had sent me a pretty snazzy report of this year, as some of you may have already received yours. It’s interesting to see the breakdown of the numbers and have it all summed up. 2500 views, most of them from the U.S. *cough, cough* Where’s… Continue reading My 2014
Today marks my 2 year anniversary with WordPress! I remember the evening I decided to put my thoughts out into the world for everyone to read. It took me some time to decide if I was going to “put myself out there” but I am so glad I did. And while as of late I… Continue reading Happy Anniversary To Me!
The following is the majority of the speech I was asked to write at graduation. I wasn’t the one in school; however, I do work at a college as part of the administration staff and many of our students graduated last week. This was my first time speaking in front of so many people. There… Continue reading Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone
Today, with my work, I attended a Career and Training Fair. Within the last 10 minutes of the event, a woman by the name of Deena came over to our booth since she’s thinking about going to school. Long story short, she started to tell us about herself and how she’d love to work with… Continue reading The Stranger I Met Before
At the beginning of February, one day working at my last job, someone brought me a purse they found in a cart in the parking lot. I did, what I did every other time, I checked for ID and went through the phone book right away to call the customer. I found her number and… Continue reading The Lady and Her Purse: The Stranger I’ll Never Forget
What?! How, you say? Read on, friend… As some of you may know, I have been working in retail for 10 years…for the same company. I’ve only had one job but in 2 different cities. Clearly, I don’t rank overly high on the spontaneous scale in the career area. I got a college education and… Continue reading How To Get A Job Without Applying For One
