What are your limiting beliefs?

I recently attended a seminar about how to take your life to the next level; how to live at your greatest. Part of me cringes as I write that last word – I suspect some of you rolled your eyes when you read it. But, truth be told, the fact that I cringed and that […]

You are not a label

Becoming a parent is a funny thing. Before I had Marko, I was carefree. I moved out on my own at age 20 despite the wishes of my well intentioned middle eastern parents. I went to school full-time and worked nearly as much to keep up with my tuition fees. At night, I went out […]

No More Lame Excuses: 2018

Are you still writing? How’s the blog? What have you published lately? To all those that have asked, or have thought to ask, the answer is: nothing. Actually, that’s not quite true.

Bye bye dairy: my chat with nutritionist Amy Longard

Last week, I asked a friend of mine who specializes in holistic nutrition to help me move towards a more plant-based diet and find creative ways to enjoy more foods without dairy. My husband and I spent the summer eating an abundance of fresh organic vegetables from a local farmer and I must say, I never […]

People change: learning to accept it

For a long time, I would get upset when I felt that the people closest to me were changing. I remember when I was in high school, and even in the early part of my 20s, I would often hear girls whispering “she’s changed” about another. It was meant to shift the blame and responsibility […]
