Lately I have been bombarded by individuals who are obsessed with the TV show “The Walking Dead“. So many people I know have been obsessed with this show for years, but with the new episodes on the rise people have been going bonkers! What an interesting choice of wording, am I right? But the reality of it is, these people are going bonkers; I sometimes wish people would go that crazy for something I do. Have you ever dreamed of being famous? I can’t imagine what that lifestyle would bring but some days I get curious if that financial cushion would be worth all the individuals who want to know every little detail about my life. What kind of food do you eat? What couch is your preference, soft and clean, or a nice thick leather?
Could you imagine being asked questions like that? I’ve read articles along with seen interviews of people picking away at actors and musicians, asking them those kind of silly questions looking for a serious response. (I don’t think that would work for me, now that I think about it). If I am beginning an article about the individuals who have hopped onto “The Walking Dead Train” then I most likely would publish a book called “How To Survive The Paparazzi” if I were to become famous.
I have been working my butt off! I love it! My mother just came into town and we have been spending an enormous amount of time together as Chris is getting married and we have a lot of planning to do; helping them with their wedding has been a blessing in disguise. Me and my mother when living together never really saw eye to eye, as time has moved forward and we have both aged we are now beginning to flow well and communicate effectively; our conversations no longer include “F-bombs”. Now this has obviously been able to evolve from time spent apart and each of us living our own separate lives, I do not want to ruin this as this is the happiest I have been with my mom in years.
How could I ruin this? I guess it wouldn’t be me alone, but with all the time we’re spending together now I am beginning to worry that it may be too much and old habits are going to intrude on our happiness.
This is one of my mothers favorite songs:
I never used to be a fan, but now it is all I can listen to. I guess when family is brought together it is able to give you more than you could ever imagine, this may be one of the most valuable lessons to learn. I’d love to talk more about this, if you can relate to how I am feeling and want to share a story or two, you can contact me here.
The sun brings me so much joy, I was sitting on the rocks by the water this afternoon and the only thing I could think about was the way the sun heated my skin. I felt and continue to feel fantastic, it was warm! Coming to the end of summer and being able to spend a couple hours on the rocks by the water, on a Saturday; all I have to say is, “Wow, this is perfect.”
I feel like I learned so much today, I got to practice a number of different things that I have never done before. Chris, my brother, is an artist; his ability to create things on the spot is like nothing I have ever seen before. We were sitting in the park and he begun tying all these different knots with his ‘paracord’. Unfamiliar with what paracord is and still fascinated by the funky colors that were looped in, he explained and taught me the art of tying a carrick mat. What a beautiful process! Absolutely mesmerizing once completed, he truly is an artist.
This is truly fantastic, we’ll see what my body tells me in the next few hours but as of now I feel like superwoman. So many things hinder peoples accomplishments when they are just simply not understanding it’s a state of mind that you must have and the state of mind your in is what matters. I could just as easily visualize some treacherous nonsense happening with me in the next few hours as I know how much sugar I just consumed… Do I choose to think of that? Absolutely not. I feel like whatever I’m doing at this very moment is going to get me to exactly where I need to be, I am proud of this. I am sharing this with you all as I believe it is of great importance. State of mind is everything.
Things have been fantastic, I am the happiest I have been in a very long time and look forward to every waking moment. My life has taken so many different turns and I am now following a path that creates nothing but joy when I see it from an outside view. I radiate forgiveness and happiness, so I’ve been told by those who know my past life experiences; they say “I’ve jumped on the abundance train”. I think this is hilarious and not necessarily true as I haven’t changed who I am, more so just my perspective.

For all those who have been following my little blog, you are aware that I have family in Victoria, British Columbia. I have put a lot of thought into what is coming next and I have made the decision to move to the island and spend the next few years of my life studying writing at the University of Victoria. This will perhaps be one of the biggest decisions of my life and I am blessed to have thought of it on such short notice; simply following intuition. A moving company In Victoria BC with be helping me with my move, as grateful as I am for their services I really do believe they should receive a shout out from me. We Haul Cheap LTD does Canada-Wide moving and has helped hundreds of people with scenarios like mine; wanting change.
The man who owns the company was recommended to me by my uncle, he has done a lot of business with the owner with moving and hauling services and I trust my uncles judgement. I will say one thing though, I live a distance and I am a tad bit nervous about the valuables I have tucked away that belonged to my grandmother. Fragile, valuable, and most certainly carrying a lot of sentimental value. I would be crushed if these items were to break. Thank you uncle, this post is for you.
I truly believe balance is of the utmost importance in this life, we all should strive to live in harmony and move with such fluidity that all thought, feeling, and motion is effortless. You can either choose to have your emotions on “auto pilot” or you can choose to control them. This is a HUGE challenge, but it can be done and with the right state of mind being in constant practice you can begin to shape your life. Being a child is so much fun, living in a world of fantasy I have been consistently applying to my life and I am currently seeing amazing results!
Find new ways to bring joy into your world, it’s absolutely fantastic when you begin to see the changes that a little shift in focus can do. I have recently begun finding these that make me feel uncomfortable and doing everything I truly can to make myself accustom to the feelings that those things give me; making me no longer fearful of the experiences. This is by far one of the most challenging practices I have endured but it is soothing in the sense that I no longer feel uncomfortable around big dogs! I have conquered the fear! (to a degree)… One step at a time right?
Enjoy your evening, please and thank you. ; ]

I ended my last post on the topic of choice, being grateful for the fact that we all have choices and that our choices shape our outer reality. You can either choose to help someone up when they’re down or you can stomp on their shins to keep them from getting up. What would you choose? I personally can’t fathom the idea of someone choosing to stomp on anyone’s shins, unless the intent of that individual was to harm the innocent. I choose to live a life that I will be able to look back on and say to myself “I made a decision here, and this decision changed my life”. Regardless as to what the decision is, I could have made another one, but I chose to make that one. It brought me here, and today I am grateful.
I just got this intuitive feeling to phone my sister, so on that note I am actually going to pause my writing and return in the near future. (most likely ten to twenty minutes but who knows). Read More
Last night I was a little emotional, not in the sense that I was upset; that’s entirely off course. What I felt was joy, and I wanted to express my gratitude through a little words of appreciation for my past support systems and my current support system. I live in a beautiful apartment building where I have a view of the water and choose to meditate daily.. Helping me with my sanity? Most certainly, I’ve truly begun to FEEL the way I want to feel by controlling my feelings. I spent years in my childhood repressing my feelings and basically leaving them on auto pilot; very important lesson to learn. At the age of twenty-eight I carry the energy of a mellow, calm, quick thinking rascal.

Two years ago I ventured off to Victoria, British Columbia. My aunt lives in the city whom I call my nan. She has the warmest heart, four children and currently growing her hair out in a silver like fashion. Her hair is actually silver… It’s incredible. We caught up over a number of glasses of wine and sits. Meditation has become a huge part of my life and I was pleased to hear her interest in what I’ve been practicing. During my stay there was an enormous storm, actually, straight to the point one of her trees in the front yard fell over onto the driveway; THANKFULLY, no one was hurt. We had some local arborists arrive almost immediately after it happened. Very grateful for the tree service they provided as we were not only in shock but we were also stuck. The cars were in the garage and we were all grateful for that, it’s interesting how things like this come about. Read More
