IF BROKEN CRAYONS STILL COLOUR, HOW COME NO ONE PICKS ‘EM?

Recently, for some odd reason, I keep seeing the caption—”broken crayons still colour.”  For a long time, I too subscribed to this notion that it’s okay to be broken and functional. I now see this phrase in a whole new light, as it suggests to me that in your broken state, you’re still effective. The lie detector determines THIS IS A LIE! Contrary to popular belief, while some broken things still work, don’t be fooled, they do not operate at full capacity. Obviously, since people have a tendency to replace broken things. 

By virtue that the body has been created to heal itself, this tells me ‘wholeness’ was the original blueprint for our lives. Sadly, we have succumbed to this fake-it-til’-you-make-it culture-so much so, that it’s hard to detect an issue at first glance. Do me a favour, abandon team brokenness rocks, aye!

Do you remember “Hush ‘lil baby don’t say a word, mama’s gonna buy...

DECLUTTERING: THE KEY TO GETTING EVERYTHING YOU WANT

Picture your dream house. I bet it’s not filled with clutter.

Do you ever find yourself ‘wishing’ for more? And then you finally get that thing, you start wishing for the next? Yes?  Me too. We all have. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with dreaming and growing, and reaching for the stars but these material things sometimes come at a bigger cost than we realize.

I did this wishing and wanting for years. I kept saying, ‘Once I get this project done’ I’ll rest, ‘once we get that piece of furniture’ the house will feel complete, once I have A, B, C, go on X, Y, Z vacations – THEN things will feel right, THEN I’ll be happy, THEN I’ll have time, space, etc to do what I really want to do. But that time never came. . . 

I always liked a tidy house but my idea of it all shifted when I read the Magic Art of Tidying up by Marie Kondo, and while her version of super minimalism and extreme...

WHO HAS THE KEY?

Everyone has a journey they must travel to learn the lessons they are here to receive. The roads we travel mould and shape us into who we are, who we are meant to become, and lead us to the people who are meant to impact our lives so we may achieve our soul’s purpose.

Like most of the world, I carried judgement of others.

I would find myself wondering “why do they do that?” or I would question the way they behaved in the world. The funny thing is, questioning others, allowing myself to feel annoyed by others’ decisions for how they chose to live or behave, did nothing to impact them. It didn’t change the way they made their choices or how they lived their lives. What it did do was rob me of my own joy because I allowed myself to BE annoyed.

When I eventually came around to this realization I decided to release my judgments and say to myself, “not my journey, not my lessons”, and I’d wish them well, sending them off with love.

As I...

5 TIPS TO FACE ADVERSITY WITH EASE

WHEN YOU’RE A RESILIENCY QUEEN THIS PANDEMIC IS BUT A BLIP IN THE FEAR-O-METER. 

I like to think that I’m just like everyone else, nothing more, nothing less, but I believe we all do ourselves a disservice when we don’t recognize how truly special we are. I have come to learn we are all masters at one thing or another. We need to share our experiences with others so they, too, can traverse the plains we have walked before them. If you are alive, you have a story to tell that can and will support others; it’s our duty to do that.

I want to take you back in time to roughly 8 months ago. It was a day like any other. I woke up, showered, got dressed and readied my daughter for school. Off she went, neither of us with a care on the horizon. Later that day, the government announced that March break would be extended to two weeks and life as we had always known it would change. In the weeks that followed, as people started literally fighting over toilet paper...

TAKING BACK MY LIFE – USING HARDSHIP TO MOVE FORWARD

Are you the person you hoped you would be? If not, don’t fret. Remember, life is a journey of self-empowerment and constantly learning and evolving to become that person you want to be. Constantly remind yourself of who you want to be. This will ensure your actions, decisions and thoughts are aligned to get you there. It can be messy, hard work, especially when you are in the darkest season of your life. You will need to be okay with yourself. Forgive yourself for decisions and choices you made consciously or unconsciously that derailed you from your vision of yourself, your truth.

When you’re not living your truth, there is always a moment when you look around and think to yourself. Who am I? Where am I? How the hell did I get here? This is not what I hoped for. I never envisioned my life like this. This is a pivotal moment! You need to grab this moment and grab onto that vision of who you thought you would be and who you want to be. Remind yourself you can still be...
