Back And Forth

The Present Moment


If you have learned a little bit about me, you’d know I do my best to live for the moment. That is what this article is going to focus on, it’s going to be short as I do have to run to the store before it closes but I wanted to stop in as this is really all the time I have. I have been living in the moment to the best of my ability and the book I talked about previously has really brought light to this area of my life. Consciously and unconsciously I pop in and out of the moment, want to know my favorite reset? It’s a secret that I have shared with two different individuals and they both mean the world to me. I want to share it with the people who decide to read this. My reset is me saying “Thank you.”



My Brother Connor.

Those Memories That Never Fade


It is truly hard to put into words what this man has done for me and my life. I think his specialty is pleasing people, you know how some people are considered ‘people pleasers’? Connor is one of them. Though it’s nice because all of his actions are altruistic, and he doesn’t get overwhelmed and look at himself as a ‘people pleaser’, this I truly find fascinating. Connor phoned me last night just to talk about life, it was such a wonderful surprise as I was folding my laundry (which I really did not want to be doing). He begun sharing with me what he’s been doing; he’s been studying architecture and has really begun spreading his wings with regards to exploring himself! He just recently got home from a Central America trip that he did not tell anyone of our family members about… This had me a little frustrated but I brushed it off, that is a huge adventure and for him to not share? Seems rather rude to me, but like I said, I brushed it off and we continued sharing stories. It’s been over eight months since we’ve seen each other and we both agreed that it’s time for a family gathering; looking to spend Christmas with the family this year!


Cleaning Companies That You Can Count On

Wow, These Guys Deserve The Best


So everyone who has been following my blog knows I recently spent some time in Beautiful British Columbia, specifically in Victoria. Here is a link to one of my previous posts where I talk about all of the Pokemon players; such a funny yet awesome sequence of events… I’m writing this article because of the incredible phone call I just received from my nephew Derek. During my stay he ran into a serious leakage issue, it ended up causing both of us some grief during my stay; the issue was resolved and the company who cleared his roof and removed all the scattered debris actually mentioned a position of employment that was available. Fortunately for him, these window cleaners just got back in contact with him and offered him a job! I didn’t mention it before but another reason for my visit to the city was that Derek has been battling some serious financial issues and I was there to assist as well as obviously give him the support he deserves. I had to share as this has just completely lifted my day!


Down Time And Recuperation

Enjoying The Weather From The Inside!


Today has been such an incredible day, I love having my loved ones around me and on a Sunday to have such positive energy in my circle? Wow, what a blessing. It’s been pretty relaxed so far, haven’t gotten up to a whole lot and you know what? It feels great! Aren’t they called ‘Lazy Sundays’? I believe that’s a common expression and I am going to put it into practice with this article! Today I am here to share with you a whole lot of chillness! Something different, and I like that.


I Love To Read

The Sacred Path of the Warrior


A couple of weeks ago I touched on this book I have been reading, this book truly has changed my perspective and opened my mind to new light. Extremely profound statements are made and if you approach them with an openness and genuine curiosity you can reap rewards as long as your motive remains pure. I talk a little bit about the book here but now I would like to share with you some key factors as I have done some rereading and applied concepts that I never thought would have such an affect on me and my life.


Thinking Those Thoughts

You Know The Thoughts I’m Talking About?


The ones that make you think twice about your first response? The ones that create judgement, and the thoughts that intrude! These little minions are running around my mind today and now it’s time to let them go with this wonderful post I am about to write. That is my intentions with writing this, it’s not entirely to vent but it’s to just move my thoughts to the post through the keyboard and not force anything. I won’t be going in and making any edits besides the bolding I like to do, for importance of course. So this is going to lead into a bunch of different topics and truly it’s an experiment. I always like to proof read and more often than not have a family member or friend proof read but with this post I feel that if I am writing exactly what is on my mind I won’t be making mistakes. Visualization of exactly what needs to be written and having it appear in front of me in this very moment. Finding that I may be repeating myself, I’m not sure; I’m not going back! Just going to keep going and see what happens. I like this plan, and it feels right, so I should do it.


The Value Of Objects

Valuing Materialism


I want to talk a little bit about materialism today, during my stay in Victoria, British Columbia I have seen more people on their cell phones than I believe I have ever seen… I think it has something to do with this new ‘Pokemon GO‘ trend that will surely set in the near future. Writing this with the intent to add a little value and insight into my readers minds. The forces of materialism are strong, believe me, I’m far from a saint and can easily get sucked into a good game of Candy Crush. Though right now I feel as if our world is being forgotten about, all these people finding ways to escape their reality in search of ‘entertainment’ when all the entertainment we need is right in front of us at all times! It’s inside us! I think a lot of people have forgotten that everything comes from within and this ‘boredom’ people speak of, really is just a lack of creativity… We are creating beings, and I believe this needs to be drilled into every human being.

The Quest In Victoria

Have You Been To Victoria, British Columbia?


But first! New to my blog? Read a little bit about who I am on my about page!

I am currently overlooking the water from my nephews balcony, he is renting this quaint little apartment on Johnson St. This is basically the center of downtown, it is absolutely gorgeous here. We’ve hit a few bumps in the road on this journey so far; I arrived late last night and we were surprised to find that there has been a major leak in the roof; dealing with draining slime substance at midnight isn’t the most fun thing in the world. Thankfully we managed to get it cleaned up and found a number of buckets to temporarily deal with it… We phoned a bunch of different local companies as Derek’s manager is out of town; figures. We got in touch with a window cleaning company who offers a lot more than just window cleaning and thankfully they came to save the day, quoted us a fantastic price but obviously Derek will be invoicing Tania; Derek’s manager. Apparently the roof has a build up of moss and other scraps as well as chunks of debris which caused some leakage? I’m honestly not sure, I am just grateful that they fixed the outer portion so the issue won’t persist. We are still looking for a local company to come and fix his ceiling as it is bubbling and dripping… That has been my day so far, but it’s still a beautiful day! We just need to get this finished up so we can go enjoy the weather; Derek mentioned kayaking.



Being Honest



Honesty if of huge importance to me, my last post I was writing about how I am going to be traveling to Victoria, British Columbia. I could have easily second guessed myself and made the decision based on “Oh no, I can’t do that. That’s to expensive”. Now where is the fun in that? Life is suppose to be FUN most importantly happiness is always suppose to be something we strive for. I love the idea and am following through, I have booked my trip!

If you make the decision to first do something and it feels right, your actually listening to yourself; do it! The outcome is fantastic, if you start to feel bad you have obviously let your conscious mind intervene with your heart and the ‘logic’ we so have has stomped all over the feeling of basic goodness.


Visiting Family

Beautiful British Columbia


I spent the majority of my childhood in the interior of British Columbia, Canada. What an absolute treasure it was to grow up in the forest surrounded by all different kinds of creatures while spending most of my time at cottages on the lake. My childhood definitely formed a mindset in me, and that is to be one with nature! Nature is what we have and nature is what we are, the laws of life fall into play when you look at nature with an open mind and an open heart. Powerful words and quite profound I know, but these are things that have shaped who I am as a woman. My oldest brother Carol spent years tormenting me and pushing me to my limits with whatever I showed interest in; I thank him for that. To this day I remember the time when we decided it was a fantastic idea to run to the end of the driveway with our ankles tied together… Can you imagine the outcome of this? Laughing as I write this I continue to reminisce and see the glory of the days spent in the wilderness. Now I spend the majority of my time in a cubical or on a treadmill attempting to use my imagination to explore what is on the other side of these four walls. I need to get out more, I think it’s about time I head back to British Columbia.
