How do you choose to suffer?

How do you choose to suffer?

Today, my sister sent me an absolutely brilliant article titled, “The Most Important Question of Your Life” by Mark Manson.  It talked about how many of us have dreams we want to accomplish and goals we want to come to pass.  We envision ourselves at the finish line with our university degree, family of four […]

Every Hour, Every Day, Every Week

Every Hour, Every Day, Every Week

This summer has been way busier than I ever expected!  With running shine, working full time, being a leader at my church, trying to have friends and e, f, g, h…. Everything else. It’s been busy. During one particularly busy week, I literally had a dream where someone asked me if I could do something for […]

We are all Leaders

We are all Leaders

I love leadership, it’s one of my biggest passions.  Learning how to be a better leader, how to lead others and how to lead myself.  One of my goals in life is to ‘Raise Leaders’ in any capacity.  Far too often we leave leading to the experts but today I want to encourage and empower […]

The breeding ground for Gratitude

The breeding ground for Gratitude

We live in a world where most of what we do is in the pursuit of happiness. Some people find happiness in love, money, friendships, books, traveling etc.   In the movie The Pursuit of Happiness, Will Smith is looking to build a better life for himself and his child.  I love that movie, Will is the man.

Strategic Thrifting:

Hello beauties! It’s been way too long since we’ve last connected, so I decided to “go big or go home” with this post. As you’ve probably noticed, Summer is well on its way.

Hey Everyone! Something I’ve been dealing with a lot is finding purpose where you’re planted. Like I’ve said in the past, moving home from Australia was a really tough move for me.  Going from living with my best friends, growing, learning and living in the most beautiful city in the entire world.  I really changed […]

SpringFlings

Hey Babes! Spring has sprung, the weathers is absolutely gorgeous, the flowers are blooming, the birds are singing and summer is fast approaching.  Has anyone else noticed a trend with Spring though?  When I was in college every spring at least 10 cupels would appear out of no where! One minute you’re sitting outside with […]

Somethings are taught Somethings are caught I had a meeting this morning with the amazing Angela Mercer, a wonderful mom, leader and pastor.  In our meeting she said, as an off hand comment, “somethings are taught, somethings are caught”. So naturally, I stole that idea and am now writing a blog about it.  Thank you […]

High School.  What a time in life.  I graduated in 2011 from Medway High School in Arva, Ontario.   I liked high school I had (and have) great girlfriends, I did well in school, I was involved in lots of extra curricular activities.  Life was pretty good in high school for me. I remember walking down […]

Who has seen the new cinderella movie? So beautiful right?! The costumes, the sets, the magic everything was so wonderfully done!  One of my favourite parts (and probably worst part of the movie) was when Ella’s mom died.  I know, I cried too.  However, I love what she said to Ella right before her passing, “have courage […]
