Boundaries And Rituals

Do you like routines?  Schedules?  Knowing when things are going to happen? I do.  I am more at peace when I know what my day entails rather than being completely spontaneous or those spur of the moment – fly off the seat of your pants – type of plans.  However, I do have to...

Remembering

Remembrance Day is a couple days away.  This day always gets me thinking about those who sacrificed their lives for our country. Those who were away from their families in order to support their loved ones back home.  Those who fought hard, struggled, and saw unimaginable sights throughout their service.  Even those who...

It’s All In The Wording

Have you ever travelled somewhere and then you get completely absorbed in the culture? The atmosphere? The way the locals talk?  I do.  As you saw from a previous week’s blog, we recently travelled to Northern Ireland (the UK) and even though this is only our second time to Ireland, both times,...

It’s Official

Have you ever wanted to try something new, but it was scary to begin or even to share about it to others?  That’s me. I can sometimes get in my head and have ideas – or have ideas presented to me – and not try because I am scared.  Back in September,...

There has been a lot of talk in the news and all-over social media regarding titles.  Prince Charles is now King Charles.  Prince William is now the Prince of Wales.  Kate Middleton is now the ‘new’ Princess of Wales.  What is your title? My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to...

Travelling After Covid

I love to travel. I love to see new places – cities, countries, exotic locations and adventures. However, these past few years have made that quite difficult for some.  Now that the world is blossoming again I thought it would be a great idea to let you in to some great...

Filter Facade

If you are on social media, you will know that every app has its filters.  A filter to change the background of your photo. A filter to make you ‘look’ better. A filter to create a funny overlay on your face.  These filters were created to supposedly ‘better’ yourself, but are they...

The Nudge

How are you at last minute changes? When something completely changes your day and you have to drop what you have planned to deal with what is happening?  What about when that crazy driver or quirky neighbour annoys you? How do you react?  I have to admit that I don’t...
