    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 ....

    A Mindset for Growth

    From the day we’re born we get labeled by people in our surroundings. “Oh she’s so cute, she’s going to be beautiful, just like her mom!”. “Oh wow! Already counting! What a smart boy!”.
    Our actions, looks, and mood in one particular moment can define how people see us, label us, and talk about us for a very long time. If you’re a rebel by nature, you’ll probably say: "who cares about what people think and say about me, it doesn’t matter" and I agree. Except that, when you’re 5 years old, you are learning to perceive yourself and the world around you from the adults in your life. So that comment your aunt made ....
