Are You Taking Things Too Personally?

Whenever you interact with other people you have the choice to listen, engage, acknowledge, agree, disagree and let go of what they say, or you can take what they say personally and feel hurt or attacked. What anyone says or does doesn’t necessarily have to do with you because it is usually based on their own emotions, experiences and perceptions. If you do take what they say or do personally, you will most likely end […]

Ashley Judd Slaps Media in the Face for Speculation About Her “Puffy Appearance”

I love this article! Way to go Ashley Judd –she writes in The Daily Beast about how disappointed she is with the media’s negative reactions to her appearance and the unrealistic standards we women face nowadays…   “The Conversation about women’s bodies exists largely outside of us, while it is also directed at (and marketed to) us, and used to define and control us. The Conversation about women happens everywhere, publicly and privately. We are […]

Take a Leap of Faith! Happy Leap Day!

Today you get a whole extra day! YAY! How are you going to use that bonus time? How about you take a leap of faith?! Get out of your comfort zone and face one of your fears…do something today that scares you! Taking a leap of faith means jumping into the unknown, which is something I LOVE doing! The unknown is exciting, not scary and I look at the unknown with curiosity, NOT fear. Why not give […]

Confident Eye Contact

    Confident people always make frequent and direct eye contact. There are 8 forms of non-verbal communication and eye contact is one of the most valuable non-verbal means of communication you can use. So much of what we want to communicate can be delivered through our eyes. One glance from another person can speak volumes about that person’s level of confidence and their attitude. How many times have fights broken out simply because one […]

TBC Indoor Go-Kart Racing Fun

  WOOOOO-HOOOOO!! I just love it there. You can get the go karts goin’ super fast!! A great way for me to get my winter “Speedy Bike Girl” adrenaline fix 🙂 I was flying around the track doing 60km/hr while sitting just 2 inches from the ground! The 13-turn road course means that the drivers with the most guts and skill will get the fastest times. The time flies by SO quickly, so you’ve gotta […]

Self-Love: How to Fall In Love With Yourself

Happy Valentine’s Day! ‘Tis the season to be talking about love…and because self-love is one of The 10 Components of Confidence, you know I have to talk about that today! 🙂 Self-love is having a deeply affectionate relationship with yourself. Unfortunately self-love hasn’t really been encouraged over the course of history. We’ve been socially conditioned to think negatively about loving ourselves. Our society has labelled people who love themselves openly as egotistical, vain and selfish. […]

Fun at the Indoor Shooting Range

It’s been a while since I had some fun at a shooting range. Several years ago was the first time, when one of my best buddies became a cop, he invited me to an outdoor range to try it. And I loved it, and was surprised to learn that I had really great aim! But now my buddy is married with a child, so he’s a busy guy and doesn’t go out to the range […]

My FAV bike at the 2012 Vancouver Motorcycle Show

This past weekend the annual bike show was here, and being a HUGE sportbike lover, I had to go check out it out. Specifically I had to go see the bike I am most excited about for 2012, the brand new Ducati 1199 Panigale. SUCH AN INCREDIBLE BIKE –I am saving up for mine! But of course, mine won’t be red, it will be HOT PINK, just like my Kawasaki Ninja 🙂 Ducati eliminated the […]
