What Do I Know About Being a Life Coach?

I know it might seem odd to some of you ~ That while my own life is in shambles, I am working towards becoming a life coach. It’s laughable, really. But I’m still doing it. And I still believe I have value to offer, maybe even moreso because of my struggles, and have shown exactly that with those I have worked with already. Not surprisingly, many that I follow in this line of work, have at one time or another…

What is Virtue?

I sat in church a few weeks ago and listened to a lesson on virtue. The teacher was amazing and I found her teaching style upbeat and engaging. It wasn’t her that inspired this post but rather the numerous similar comments from the others in the room – there was a theme in the way we are conditioned to think, and it bothers me. It bothered me then, when I thought to write this and it bothers me now, weeks…

Reactive Anxiety Disorder – My Story

I think my recent facebook post said it best: Anyone who knows me knows that this is what I look like the majority of the time ~ smiling and laughing. I’ve got the laugh lines to prove it. But what nobody really knows is what’s behind it all. The thing is, everybody has a story and I think it’s time to tell you mine. I am naturally wired to be happy. To pick myself up and keep moving, and always…

Sometimes Responsibility Sucks ~ The Axel Story

Five weeks ago and I still can’t really talk about it. Writing on the other hand, THAT I think I can do. Last fall Axel, my male dog (a lab, not a breed known for aggression issues) ate our neighbour’s cat in a sudden and random attack. I saved the cat (never again) from his jaw, twice…but the damage done and the highest amount of vet involvement (which was chosen to get back at me) ran me a bill of $6700. You…

Ryan’s Anchor Day ~ R.A.D.

They say the triangle is the strongest shape because high amounts of forces can be sustained without deformation. I have recently seen in my life, the strength that comes from three. I know if we were talking metaphorically, I would be one of the three points of the triangle but the truth is, I think I’m actually surrounded by it instead. There are three people who have each played a major role in my journey so far. I am indebted…

Yesterday, I was supposed to die

Yesterday, I was supposed to die. Yes, you read that right. No, I’m not sick … actually, maybe I am, or was … I don’t know. But yesterday, May 17th, was going to be the day I ended my life. Following the final breakdown of my marriage, I moved out Dec 26th and on Jan 1st I decided to make a suicide plan.

This recipe is from Allrecipes.com – one of my favourite recipe sites when I need something delicious 1/2 pound sliced bacon, cut into thirds 1 (20oz) can pineapple chunks in juice, drained…
