September 21, 2011 I felt really good today. I was happier than I have been for quite some time. I walked around my house on light feet. I felt at peace. The day started out well. My friend had driven into the city last night, and we sat up late catching up on news. After […]

September 12, 2011 When my family moved from St. Albert to Morinville, I quickly set up our new house. My youngest was born seven months after the move. I remember looking out of my front window while feeding him in the middle of the night. The street was dark and comforting. The street lights casting […]

September 10, 2011 Just yesterday, I had a spent a productive 45 minutes on the phone with my mastermind group. When it was my turn to speak, I explained about my Canadian Goldenflax Seed business. My mastermind group offered advice on how to increase my business by expanding my market, and incorporating other ideas into […]

August 31, 2011 I feel like I am getting a handle on things. I have my calendars almost all set up. That helps me feel like I’m on top of everything. When I don’t have my calendars set up, then I feel like I’m running behind all the time. It’s amazing how those calendars seem […]

August 29, 2011 The voices have started. They started a couple of weeks ago. As today approached, they became louder and louder. Clamouring in my head.

While reflecting, I remembered something that happened about seven years ago. Something that amazed me, shocked […]

August 6, 2011 In yesterday’s blog, I referred to my favourite quote, which was written by Marianne Williamson. When I consider this quote, I realize how well it relates to how we view ourselves in today’s world. When I was a child, we were discouraged to stand out, to shine above anyone else. We were […]

August 3, 2011 Reflecting on my day is something that I need to make into a habit. Often, I rush around from one to-do item on my list to another. By the end of the day, I am thinking about what I did not get done. And what I still have to do. And what […]

August 2, 2011 I read an article about Mark Shea in the Red Deer Advocate today. Mark had stayed in a homeless centre one night in December 2001. What happened that night changed Mark’s life forever, and he never stayed in another homeless centre again. Ralph Klein, who was the premier at that time, visited […]

July 28, 2011 I was introduced to an interesting tool that helps you discover what motivates you as a leader. I discovered this tool through an article that Gordon Young wrote in the Creating People Power newsletter. Immediately I researched the website and knew I was onto something powerful. I connected with both Gordon Young […]
