My 3 Favourite Tips for Creating a Better Start to the New Year

My 3 Favourite Tips for Creating a Better Start to the New Year

Have you heard any of the latest talk about how reviewing your previous year helps with your goals for 2018?

I have, and it’s been making me smile. I really believe spending time with what has past is an essential component to getting the traction we need for moving forward.

It Could Be Worse

It Could Be Worse

It’s true, things could always be worse, and we do have much to be grateful for. This time of year reminds us, even more, how lucky we are.

However, before we start glossing over the serious challenges, many of us are facing these days, my hope is that we are, first, taking the time we need to be with our emotions. Because the last thing we need is to have is our buried grief, anger or fear hijack our dreams.

Movement

Movement

What I want to do is start a movement, a "Thriving in Chaos Movement," where people can gather, learn and connect.

The first step to that is the release of my printed book which will be launching September 19.

Rhythms and Fire

Rhythms and Fire

It has been a while since I have posted any musings. I find when my external world becomes full, I need to take more quiet to balance my internal world. For me, that translates to less time on social media. Reliably inconsistent would describe my way of showing up. However, I am ok with my unreliability ;)

Right now I am moved to speak about the shocking situation of fires burning in our province. 155 of them burning today, with 3000 courageous firefighters attending. Thousands of people and animals displaced, homes lost, wild creatures perishing. Heartbreaking, and staggering in size, with no end in sight to the weather conditions.

For me, the heaviness of the tragedy hovers in the background of daily life as I watch the smokey haze drift over the coastal mountains, washing the sunset with orange.

One thing that helps me is writing, and I am sharing an article I wrote at another time of great fires that was published in the Elephant Journal magazine.
