    How to Attract What You Want In Life

    Have you ever spend time daydreaming about something you want and have it come true in real life? If you have been so lucky, you have experienced the power of your own energy source. On the flip-side, have you ever spent time worrying or thinking that someone doesn’t like you, only to find out you were right? The law of attraction is the belief that positive or negative thoughts bring positive or negative experiences. It really makes sense if you think about it. If you think about things that are positive all of the time, your actions will likely be positive and out of good faith, and most likely good…

    Choose Yourself in 2020

    A new year often brings resolutions. Resolutions are usually a type of punishment for things you don’t like about yourself. The desire to change is driven by thoughts of self-doubt and negativity. No wonder the majority of January gym-goers quit before February is over. The drive to change needs to come from a deep love for yourself. You need to matter so much that your health, happiness and wellness become a top priority. Setting a goal out of disgust for yourself will always end in failure. Instead of a New Year’s resolution, make a self-care plan that helps you reconnect with yourself and fall in love with the amazing person…

    Turn Fear into Fabulous

    Fear. We all have it. Most of us hate it. Some of us are crippled by it. I am talking about the annoying little voice in our heads we often hear just as we are about to make a life change or take a risk. Many times this fear makes us tuck our heads back into our shell and continue on the same mundane life path. I am not saying all risks are smart and should be taken regardless of your fear. What I’m saying is all changes come with some anxiety and fear of the unknown or new. In order to grow as a person and evolve into a…

    It’s Okay to Re-Write Your Story

    Most of us spend hours as a child dreaming of the fairytale life we will live when we grow up. Fast forward twenty years and we miss those carefree days so much when our biggest worry was choosing which Barbie to play with . Unfortunately, all too often as adults we are wishing for more or missing the past. Never does it seem like we are actually enjoying life and living in the moment. But what if the moment in time we are in is not living up to the picture perfect life we dreamed as children? At a time in our lives when most of us do not even…

    Are You in a Toxic Marriage?

    Some kids grow up in a perfect happy home. I grew up watching my mother’s boyfriend treat her like garbage. He was rude and grouchy to her and to us. Their relationship went from one extreme to the other, screaming matches or the silent treatment. Luckily, eventually my Mom realized her own self worth and kicked his ass out after nine years of torment. So naturally, when I was 15 years old I decided (subconsciously of course) to repeat the same behaviour patterns. My first real relationship started with jealousy, possessiveness and obsession. Great starting point! I had a thing about wanting to change and fix people… Gee, I wonder…

    Fuck Mom Guilt

    Historically, women stayed home and cooked, cleaned and cared for the children. We were defined by our roles as a home maker, wife and mother. Luckily, things have evolved and women now have choices. Unfortunately, those “old school” values are ingrained in us as Moms and in society. No matter how we slice it, the care of the children remains to be mostly the mother’s responsibility, or at least others perceive it this way. Unfortunately, there remains an underlying judgement of women who choose differently: a career over being a stay at home mom, to take an hour a day to exercise, whether to breastfeed or not. We moms are…

    Some Days are Shitty and That’s Okay!

    In today’s society, the power of positivity is all the rage. Social media is filled with people who appear to have it all. I am here to tell you underneath those smiles there is sometimes pain. What people rarely talk about are the bad days. Unfortunately we all have them, some of us more than others. And guess what? You are entitled to have bad days! These bad days teach us resilience and coping mechanisms. Yesterday was one of those days for me. I had an appointment with a gynaecologist/oncologist to discuss the removal of my ovaries because my sister has ovarian cancer. I didn’t realize how this discussion was…
