Life has been a little up and down for me lately.

Not enough hours in the day.

Too many things to do in too short a time.

Too many demands and a head that refuses to 'shut down' the busier life becomes.

If you can relate--read on.

This photograph reminded me of the many fac...

Some days it feels like everything is too hard.

"Struggle" is the word of the day and all I want to do is go back to bed, pull the covers over my head and pretend the world isn't out there waiting to get me.

Then I look out the window at my garden.

Have I told you how muc...

You know the feeling.

All the best intentions and then...Bam!

Out of nowhere something gets in the way of your well structured new routine/hobby/exercise program/resolution... Fill in the blank here.

It’s all about the morning habit--and I’m not talking coffee here!

If you know me (and you should be getting to know me by now) you’ll know that I’m all about the routine.




It’s my go to war cry.

So, with your new morning game plan figured out, now’...

Mornings are oftentimes busy and can even run into the chaotic range--especially if you have ‘little people’ to deal with. Ask anyone how their day has gone endeavouring to get ‘little people’ out the door and they’re quite likely to share tales of woe, abandoned break...

“I love mornings.”

That’s a huge statement coming from me, considering that I used to believe I was a ‘night owl’ and that mornings were repulsive things sent to torture me for all my earlier wrongdoings.

That might seem a little over the top--but when you’re a drinking...
