One At A Time Life is full of it, is it not? Challenges that is – and that other thing as well. What to do? Keep moving. Life challenges will come and they will go. “But how?” you ask.  Years ago, a woman told me that while she was incarcerated (8+ years) she learned that she had to do better than take things one day at a time.

Your heart must have melted, your knees got weak and you would have given your everything, including your firstborn child to him or her. Right? But what does unconditional love mean?

Peace Is Your Birthright!

Martin Luther King, Jr., And Peace The winter, so far, has been unseasonably warm across Canada. We have been enjoying temperatures that have caused many to now appreciate the effects of global warming.

Everyday Wisdom For A Great Year

January Changes The first full week of 2016 is coming to an end and what a week it has been. We have covered a few topics since the start of the year but the underlying theme has been change – embracing and growing through it. In keeping with that, we too have undergone and made some changes and the one that I am most excited about is the start of the everyday wisdom feature that is now available to Subscribers and members of this community.
