Way Maker

I just recently discovered this song.  Such beautiful words I listen to as I start my day. There is always something or someone to forgive and it is not always easy to do. Listening to this song strengthens everything within me. He reminds me about the power of faith and believing. Each day is a…

God’s Light Shines!

A year later since the pandemic, so much still happening. Situations test one’s patience. Every day, for me at least, is a work in progress, keeping calm and mindful. The doorbell rang. Toto the gardener asked to speak to me. I came down to meet him and he showed me a bicycle. Since the pandemic,…

A Little Help goes a Long Way

Toto is a gardener.  He helps keep the landscape where I live looking nice and healthy. He lost his 14-year old child who lives in the province to asthma. His family did not have access to a local hospital nor did they have enough money to buy medicines. He is desperate and wants to go…

A Kind Opportunity

I’ve been watching inspiring movies on YouTube and stumbled upon this short film titled. I continue to celebrate my journey after retirement. https://youtu.be/Y8rj4BTNU0Y When a door closes, a window opens. Validation that I am heading in the right direction. No matter what the surrounding circumstances are, Stepping down from work is emotional for me. Few…

My GRAB Ride

I saw a movie on Youtube, Kindness Matters and I remembered stories I had written about random Kindness... https://youtu.be/lHrFXTYPofc I cannot keep track of how many times Francis has picked me up on my way to work.   I've had bad mornings to work wherein I sensed the familiarity, but was too caught up in my…

I am READY!

New Beginnings can happen over and over again. How fortunate and blessed I am that I have options. Experience was right! Money cannot buy one happiness. At the end of the day, you can’t take anything tangible with you. When you go, it’s the intangible that others will remember you for. Every day is a…

LIFE and GOD

There is no right formula for Life except to live it well as can be. Living well has no formula either. It is unique to every individual and without judgement. My sister has stage 4 cancer. She ate very well, a vegetarian and conscious eater for many years. There were bad moments in her younger…

Farewell my Friend

The year was 2004.  Her name was Anette.  She and I sat at opposite ends of the office.  We became friends quickly.  Considering she was 12 years younger than me, it was amazing how we clicked and got along so well. Her friends became mine and my friends became hers.  We were partners in fun…

Earthquake

I am a light sleeper. Slight sounds easily waken me. Last night my bed shook for a few seconds. Earthquake, I thought to myself. I have earthquake bags prepared and ready to go. Depending on how bad my bed shakes, that will determine whether I get up and go or not. Twice this year my…

Life Goes On

Somewhere in between the hustle and bustle of my corporate career, I studied and became a certified life coach. People always came to me seeking help with their personal lives.  I thought to myself, why not learn how to become an effective mentor. Today, I had to take my car into the shop.  It’s a…

IMPORTANT MATTERS

Are not always urgent. And vice versa. Unimportant matters are at times more urgent. The grace to identify what is truly important is what matters most. There are important matters that need time to process. Just like open wounds that need time to heal. On the other hand, urgent matters more often than not cannot…

If the SHOE Fits

I wear a size 7.   She wears a size 8.  And she wears a size 6. Although we all try to fit in, for one it’s a tight fit and for the other it’s a loose fit. I have to admit, it’s not easy. One moment it all fits in well. Yet on another day,…
