Confidence is the root of all happiness!

 I frequently get asked this question: “Why are you so happy?”  “Well,” I say, “many reasons, first of which is that I love my life and I am confident in who I am and what my purpose is.” Happiness and self-confidence go hand-in-hand! But happiness for many people is transient, it is something experienced in a moment, when we feel something, or buy something as a treat and then this moment of happiness is gone. […]

Motorcycle Ride to Mount Baker, U.S.A.

The beautiful, scenic highway just south of the Sumas/Abbotsford, B.C. border, and north of Bellingham –Route 542, takes you to one of Washington State’s most stunning places: the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Mount Baker Highway is 30 miles long and is such a spectacular motorcycle ride, from fast sweepers to super-duper sharp 10 mph hairpin corners. Starting off in a dense forest and ending up in the snow covered top called Artist Point. At an […]

Fun Times Ocean Kayaking around Bowen Island

I love living in Vancouver and being so close to the ocean. I love anything that has to do with being in the water –kayaking being one of them 😀 I went for a motorcycle ride with a friend over to Bowen Island for the first time to go kayaking for the day. So fun! Bowen Island is just a quick 20 minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay. In Snug Cove, beside the ferry terminal, […]

Self-Deprecating Humour

Humour has power; laughter can heal rifts, heal the body, soothe the mind, lighten the atmosphere and bring people closer together. Knowing how to use humour is a talent that makes people popular and appropriate use of humour can diffuse all types of volatile situations. Humour comes in all shapes and sizes and while we love to laugh, we need to be very careful when poking fun at ourselves. You have no doubt experienced someone […]

26 Successful People Who “Failed”

“Fear of Failure” is one of the most common fears that my clients have. Fear of failure holds you back from living the life you want and deserve to live. People fear failure because they are afraid of what other people will think of them. This fear stems from a strong need for acceptance from other people. But, the truth is that you will never have acceptance from everyone that you want to be accepting […]

Your “Inner Critic”

The inner critic is the negative voice or chatter that goes on inside our heads. We all talk to ourselves, it’s totally normal and everyone experiences it. The inner critic is the all the negative self-talk, reminding you of your mistakes, weaknesses and failures. It is a confidence killer! The inner critic usually doesn’t remind you of how well you’re doing or of what your strengths are. And regardless of how ridiculous the negative statements […]

My Trip To Montreal

I recently went on holidays to Montreal. It’s such a cool city because it feels very much like Europe but is a modern, diverse city (with almost all people there speaking English), with amazing shopping and fantastic restaurants. My friend and I had the BEST oysters EVER at Cavalli, and really unique seafood entrees at La Bremner. There’s so many fun things to do, one of my favourites was The Piknic Electronik, Montreal’s weekly Sunday […]

Authentic Self–Are you acting, or living your life authentically?

Who are you? When my clients come to me they can not answer that question. Who the world has told you to be? And have you been listening? Are you living a life that is more in alignment with your “authentic self” (who you were created to be) or your “artificial self” (who the world has told you to be)? As children we became actors. And for many people they keep on acting throughout their […]
