Home Sweet Home... or not??

I’m sure you’ve heard: “Home Sweet Home” or “There’s no place like home”…… but what if your home is dirty and cluttered? If you have a child and/or pets this could be more of a place of struggle and stress looking at the home you only wish you could feel relaxed and loving towards. My home was usually pretty tidy and clean… when I had a husband who was never home (now ex-husband) and one small and medium sized dogs along with three cats and a full-time job outside the home. Yes, I had to vacuum every other day but it certainly wasn’t as hard to keep up with as it is now. Now, I work a lot from home, have a toddler, a large and medium sized dogs to go with the three cats. Oh, and a husband who is almost always home when he’s not working 50-70 hours per week. When he’s not working his crazy hours I am certainly not going to expect him to clean house ! Picture this: you have just cleaned a room and gotten to the end, only to look back at it with a smile on your face, and what do you see….

To eat meat or not to eat meat.....

I call myself a vegetarian. I haven’t eaten beef or pork or even chicken since 2000... only fish since then, actually. With the exception of one bite of 2 different kinds of wild meat a couple of years ago... until last night. I had moose meat hamburger on my spaghetti. I know people aren’t going to understand my decision and that’s ok. I didn’t become vegetarian, or call myself that, to impress anyone or prove anything. I use my intuition to decide what to eat, or not, at the time. Any time I don’t it’s usually a bad decision. I first started thinking about being a ‘veggie’ when I was hearing more and more about the chemicals that animals were ingesting for personal gain. Growth hormones, antibiotics in the food.... certainly doesn’t benefit ME or the animals so who is benefitting and why?? It seems to all revolve around money. Later, I learned about the treatment of many (I dare say most) of these animals and decided I made a good decision. People have asked me, in the past, why I di


I really believe that your own opinion of yourself is the only one that matters but if you were to describe yourself what would you say? Would you be kind, smart, confident, funny, giving, inspirational...? What type of person do you want to be and what do you think others would say? Last night I saw a post on a friend’s Facebook status that I found interesting. It read, “let's see how forthcoming my Facebook friends are. Leave a 1 word comment that you think best describes me. It can only be 1 word. No more than 1 word. Then copy & paste this post on your wall, so I can leave a word about you. This should be interesting... !” I don’t normally add these types of things as my status update but was curious this time. What I got was unexpected. I guess I expected my closest friends to comment... but they didn’t. Instead... very new friends, very old friends, clients and people in between did and I was honoured by their descriptive words: energetic, thankful, caring, peaceful, Ear

Long, medium or short?

Hair. A shallow topic, I know. However, hair is such an important part of our appearance and something that everyone has to deal with. Someone once told me that our beliefs are like a house built around us... each part of the structure are like the structure of a house and when one peace falls apart we are really shook up. I think it’s the same with our hair. Many people, like myself, keep the same style for years. While others can change it drastically and often. This summer I got my bob-with wedge haircut that I’ve had for about 9 years (from very long - middle of my back, that I also had for many years) cut off to very short. I blogged about it then as well. Maybe it was just the place I was at wanting less hassles in my life... but I want a change and want it longer this time! My life must be ready for more care for me, maybe. Long, flowing and sexy; medium-length, cute and bob-ish; short, sporty and no-nonsense..... which do you prefer??
