    Who are Your Kids Emulating?


    We learn by emulating. That's why they say that you can know someone by the people they surround themselves with.
    This is even more true for kids. They're like sponges for all the information that comes through their senses. Especially up until age 7, when they haven't fully developed their reasoning skills yet and have no way to filter the bad from the good information. So they take it all in, they internalize it and through repetitive exposure, eventually they become what they see and hear everyday. So let's ask ourselves - who are our kids spending the most time with? Who's actions are they imitating? Who's values are they internalizing? Obviously parents and siblings have a ....

    Are You Living Intentionally?


    Here is a thought for this new year: How much time are you wasting on things that don't mean anything to you and keep you away from the meaningful experiences?
    This is a major question for us at home right now. We live a more or less simple life but this question made us realize how much time and energy we're still wasting on things that don't add value to our lives. And so in the last few months, we've been making an effort to live intentionally. Minimize the waste and the unwanted and really align our wants with our needs. Easier said than done, it takes focus and patience because status quo is so much easier. This is not the first time we've attempted this but so far this time ....

    Making Space for You in a Hectic World

    I had my tire replaced this week because it had a slow (ok, more like fast) leak. I spent all weekend trying to find a garage in Embrun or Russell that would be able to squeeze me in. “Yep! I'll take you in next Saturday, 9am.” 🤨 "NEXT week?!" I ended up having to drive to Ottawa to get it done sooner rather than later. It got me asking the question: Why is it that when our car needs maintenance, we don’t even think twice about getting it fixed, yet when asked to take care of our bodies, we never have enough time or money to do it? Better yet - when we do, we beat ourselves up and feel guilty about it. I am guilty of this too! There are a million things I think I ....

    You Attract What You Are

    Have you ever noticed that what you see in the world around you changes based on how you feel in the moment?Like when you’re feeling off, when you’re feeling down, everything you see seems to match what is going on within you? And when you’re happy, and you're feeling good, more good seems to be going on around you? There is a simple reason for that (however not that simple to explain): we’re all vibrational beings. Our thoughts and emotions are like a thermostat for how low or how high the frequency we’re vibrating at is. When we’re feeling joy and happiness, we vibrate at a higher level, and when we’re feeling anger and sadness, we vibrate at a ....
