Today is my birthday, so I thought it was a good time to sit, reflect, and write about the last 365. 

As I write this, birds are chirping. "Be Here Now" by George Harrison is playing. The sky is spotted with small playful clouds. I'm sitting on our little porch in the r...

I've been having a challenging time with Penelope lately. Her temper is explosive (like no fuse, just 0 to 89256809327450). She cries very easily. Doesn't like sharing. Says no for no reason. Doesn't eat or do things she previously loved. And just can be all around inc...

Have you heard the quote "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly."? I was pondering it today when I was having my moment of quiet, feeling intense joy and lightness in my heart. With the arrival of Spring, I feel this warmth filling...

Have you ever dissected the word 'should'? I've been thinking about it a lot lately. Whenever you hear or use the word should, it's often cloaked in something weird. Something judgemental, and maybe even conflicting. It's used to place shame or guilt for doing/feeling/...

I start most of my days with a superfood green smoothie, with a matcha or coffee, then as the day goes my choices worsen, and by 8PM I eat more like a first year university bro. Does anyone else do this? Why? Is it a matter of having energy to care by the end of the da...

I find lately I have been plagued with self-created expectations and 'grass is greener' thoughts. As for expectations I've placed on myself, and the 'should's' that sit heavily on my shoulders, it's not just one story, it's many. It's the expectation of what I should b...

As I sign on to wix to write this blog post, I am reminded that my last writing was the end of November. It aligns to the fact that since then, it's been a harder time. There were a lot of factors that make this winter darker, beyond the fact of Fernie's limited sunlig...

Last week I had more dark days than normal. There are ups and downs in every day, and sometimes within each hour, but last week I was feeling torn and unsettled and impatient. I'm not sure if it's due to the fact that the future can be so unknown and up in the air, or...

Oh man what a difference a day makes.

I started writing a post yesterday when I was in the thick of it. The kids were both needy/whiny/fussy/irritating, I was frustrated/tired/short, and the day was long and grey. They barely napped and I was really not into it. I have...

October 16, 2017

I've had a lot on my mind and on my plate lately and I feel the need to reflect, share and maybe get some insight. I see the last time I wrote an update/reflection on our life was over a month ago. It seems the time between each post gets longer every time I come to wr...
