In addition to blogging, I publish a fortnightly newsletter that focuses on Leadership and Strategy. My most recent issue was due on Thursday January 2, 2014. Oh GROAN! I am on vacation in Jamaica, far away from the ice storms in Toronto and very much in rest and relaxation mode. A newsletter was the last […]

The Gift on My Pillow

Part of my morning “centering” routine is to read and contemplate the reading in the Daily Word magazine.  There are magical moments when I am SURE the reading was written JUST for me on for that particular day. There are others that give me insight, a new thought or a new perspective.   And then […]

Every morning I write 10 things I am grateful for in my journal. Every morning. It’s easy enough when some exciting things have happened in my life. Then the gratitude flows sometimes past my magical number 10! But at other times I get stuck. I am at number 6 and have run out of things […]

What does 2 years of gratitude look like?

Here is a photo of my gratitude journals for the past two years. I am a believer in the power of gratitude. I have also become a practitioner of gratitude by making it my conscious daily practice. There are two things that I do as a matter of habit, which have become as ingrained at […]

Since erecting a fence a few months ago, my mailman has been in a conundrum about how to deliver my mail.  Should he fasten it to the fence?  Throw it over?  Open the gate and bring it in?  He has tried all of those.  I had no idea how inconvenient my fence had been for […]

I spoke to my dear Aunt Clara a few days ago – the Aunt Clara who is my WOW (What an Old Woman) and is busy planning her 100th birthday party next April (she’s not sure yet whether it will be at her home or a hotel … but will let me know).  Throughout the […]

What to do when you can’t find 10 things to be thankful for …

Every morning for the past 6 months or so I have written 10 things I am grateful for in my journal.  It used to be 5, and one day I decided to double it. I have, and continue to recommend this highly to everyone – it is so powerful and important to the quality of […]

I have become used to hearing these words every Father’s Day for the past 11 years, ever since my children’s father and I separated and he returned to his native country. In the first few years of becoming a single mom,  I really tried hard to be both mom and dad to my children.  Then […]
