Why Not Take A Chance on Faith and other Lessons by Jim Carrey

Why Not Take A Chance on Faith and other Lessons by Jim Carrey

"My soul is not contained within the limits of my body, my body is contained within the limitlessness of my soul." You may not know it, but Jim Carrey (yes the actor) is so full of wisdom. Yesterday, I wanted to post that quote along with a photo of myself in the store to Instagram.

International Women's Day - Speaking at Small Business BC

Last night, I had the privilege of speaking on a panel at Small Business BC in honour of International Women's Day.

My Journey to Shine!

I was just saying on Monday night to a friend that I always feel like I'm standing in the middle of a teeter-totter and that if I step the right way, the teeter-totter will finally tip in my favour.

Riding the Bull!

Riding the Bull!

Last weekend I went to a friend's 40th birthday party at the Yale Saloon, a country bar in Vancouver. In addition to line dancing and lots of great food and drinks there was also a motorized bull!

Today I Choose Joy!

Today I Choose Joy!

I bought the cutest potted plant the other day. I was drawn to it because the plant itself is completely adorable, but even better than that, the pot says: “Today I Choose Joy!” I put it on the bathroom counter right by the sink so that I can be inspired daily.
